Can it run Crysis?
Everyone knows that saying, but as the years have passed, the groundbreaking tech has gradually become less impressive following advances in ray-tracing, increased resolutions and rendering techniques.
Crytek has aimed to put that right with Crysis Remastered, introducing software-based ray-tracing on the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, and supporting hardware-based ray-tracing and 8k textures on PC.
“Co-developed with Saber Interactive, the classic first person shooter will focus on the original game’s single-player campaigns and is slated to contain high-quality textures up to 8K, HDR support, temporal anti-aliasing, Screen Space Directional Occlusion (SSDO), Global Illumination (SVOGI), state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, parallax occlusion mapping, Screen Space Reflections and Shadows (SSR & SSS) as well as new and updated particle effects and more. Further additions such as ray tracing enhance the game with a major visual upgrade.
For the first time a Crytek game will feature ray tracing on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro powered by CRYENGINE’s proprietary software based ray tracing solution. The PC version will additionally support hardware-based ray tracing on Nvidia RTX GPUs.
In Crysis, what begins as a simple rescue mission becomes the battleground of a new war as alien invaders swarm over a North Korean island chain. Armed with a powerful Nanosuit, players can become invisible to stalk enemy patrols, or boost strength to lay waste to vehicles. The Nanosuit’s speed, strength, armour, and cloaking allow creative solutions for every kind of fight, while a huge arsenal of modular weaponry provides unprecedented control over play style. In the ever-changing environment, adapt tactics and gear to dominate your enemies, in an enormous sandbox world.”
Crysis Remastered is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on September 18th.
The game will be available as a digital release via the Epic Games Store, the PlayStation Store, and the Microsoft Store for GBP 26.99 / USD 29.99 / EUR 29.99.
