Uncloaking September 18
Seventy-five percent of the Crysis Remastered platforms have not yet launched. Following a catastrophic gameplay reveal leak, Crytek pushed back the most performance-intensive platforms in hopes that some changes would keep it from getting shredded to bits. Switch launched though, and it’s surprisingly good!
PC, PS4, and Xbox One need another month. Crytek has announced that Crysis Remastered is coming on September 18. It’ll be priced at $30.
Aside from the release date, Crytek slid in some more info about the remaster. Somewhere along the line, Epic secured Crysis Remastered as an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC. Crytek, no stranger to being in dire financial straits, probably leapt at the opportunity for Crysis Remastered‘s development to be automatically profitable.
As for technical capabilities, Crysis Remastered is said to have “high-resolution textures up to 8K, HDR support, temporal anti-aliasing, screen space directional occlusion, global illumination, state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, parallax occlusion mapping, screen space reflections and shadows, new particle effects, and more.” Also, PS4 Pro and Xbox One X players will get console ray tracing. PC supports Nvidia DLSS technology and ray tracing on RTX cards.
It all sounds beefy enough that, yes, your PC will probably have trouble running Crysis if you crank up the settings just to struggle for the sake of nostalgia.
