Crytek’s Crysis franchise returns with extensive graphics upgrades
We’re currently playing through Crysis Remastered on the Xbox One X, with the review expected in the next couple of days.
Having played the original PC version, on the Xbox 360 in 3D, and now on the Xbox One X, there’s a definite jump in fidelity. Playing in 4k is great, but for console players, the 60fps performance mode is my personal favourite.
“Crytek is pleased to announce that Crysis Remastered is out now for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The remaster of the seminal first-person shooter was developed and optimized in partnership with Saber Interactive, and follows the launch of Crysis Remastered for Nintendo Switch. Crysis Remastered is available as a digital release via the Epic Games Store, the PlayStation Store, the Microsoft Store, and the Nintendo eShop for USD 29.99 / EUR 29.99.
Players who buy the game within the first three weeks from launch on the Epic Games Store will also receive a Crysis soundtrack and wallpaper. Gamers who buy Crysis Remastered within the same period on the PlayStation Store will receive a Crysis Remastered PlayStation Theme as a launch bonus.
“Our aim was to meet the expectations of the Crysis community and celebrate their passion for the franchise,” said Steffen Halbig, Project Lead. “Naturally, we are thrilled to invite players to suit up and experience Crysis, upgraded and remastered to take advantage of today’s hardware and advances in CRYENGINE.”
Crysis Remastered features the all-action, sandbox single-player gameplay from the acclaimed shooter, upgraded with remastered graphics, including high-quality textures, improved art assets, and more. For the first time this console generation, Crytek’s software-based ray tracing comes to PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. On PC, CRYENGINE’s hardware-agnostic technology brings ray tracing to a wide-range of contemporary GPUs. Additionally Crysis Remastered supports hardware-based ray tracing using NVIDIA’s VKRay Vulkan extension on launch and NVIDIA® DLSS technology will be added soon, for NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX GPU.
In Crysis Remastered, players face down an alien invasion, armed with a powerful Nanosuit which provides strength, armor, speed, and cloaking abilities. Gamers choose their own path as they fight through the open world of Crysis, destroying obstacles, driving vehicles, and using a huge armory of modular weaponry to dominate enemies on ever-changing battlefields.”
