Crysis Remastered receives a PS5 and Xbox Series X/S next-gen upgrade

Get those internal fans whirring hard

Developer Crytek has released a next-gen upgrade for Crysis Remastered. The update allows PS4 and Xbox One owners to upgrade their copy of the interstellar shooter to a newly-enhanced version on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S respectively.

The update adds an obligatory toggle for “Performance”, “Quality”, and “Ray Tracing” modes on all platforms. Performance Mode offers 1080p at 60fps on both PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, while Quality Mode offers 2160p at 60fps on Xbox Series X and 1800p at 60fps on PS5. Finally, Ray Tracing mode offers 1440p at around 60fps on PS5 and Xbox Series X and PS5, and caps out at 1080p and 30fps on Xbox Series S. The update features improved technical performance and load times across the board.

In addition to the technical boosts, Crysis Remastered‘s next-gen upgrade also includes a brand new level, “Ascension” which was previously cut from the PS4 and Xbox One editions of the remaster due to its technical complexity. Crytek has also applied a slew of tweaks and bug fixes to the shooter. For full details on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S editions of the new update, check out the official Crysis Remastered Reddit.
