Crysis Remastered revealed

Crysis Remastered has been revealed, albeit in a non-official way. Twitter user lashman dug around in the updated Crysis website. Crysis Remastered is real and it’s coming to Nintendo Switch as well. The cookie page has since been changed but not before eagle-eyed folks managed to capture some snaps.

Here’s the official line:

Crysis Remastered brings new graphic features, high-quality textures, and the CRYENGINE’s native hardware – and API-agnostic ray tracing solution for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and – for the very first time – Nintendo Switch.”

The release date and official word form Crytek is yet to be heard.

The original Crysis launched way back in 2007 for the PC. It was a spiritual successor to Crytek’s previous outing, Far Cry. Crysis would remain a graphical powerhouse and a benchmark for testing gaming PCs for years to come. Hence, leading to the birth to the popular expression “but can it run Crysis?”. 

While Crysis was way ahead of its time in terms of raw visual prowess, it wasn’t really future-proof. Especially when it came to CPU utilization. Crytek’s prediction of where CPU power would be in the near future was a bit over the mark. It resulted in the game stuttering every now and then even in the most powerful of PCs, 13 years after release. Crysis might work some magic on the game’s code. Thus making it more ‘current-gen optimized’ while adding new shiny visual effects.
