‘Can it Run Crysis?’ is a real setting exclusive to the PC version of the Crysis remaster

‘Designed to demand every last bit of your hardware with unlimited settings’

Just a little while ago, we did indeed learn if your PC can run Crysis, as Crytek provided the actual minimum and recommended specs. But can your PC actually run Crysis? We’ll find out soon enough.

It seems as if the company is embracing the pop culture phrase directly into the game, as evidenced by a tweet over the weekend. “Exclusively on PC,” the game will sport a “Can it Run Crysis?” graphics setting, which will “demand every last bit of your hardware with unlimited settings.” Yes, this will end well for everyone involved.

Crytek also provided a screenshot, which you can view and heckle below. Given that this is a remaster and not a remake, I’d say they did a decent job of bringing out the colors and detail of the island; to the point where it excels upon concepts the original was never able to achieve. Of course if you’re a fan of the dour, less saturated look of the 2007 version, you might not be a fan.
