Crysis will be getting a long-awaited remaster and will be available on all current platforms. This comes after a mysterious tweet on the game’s official Twitter after years of silence, with the tweet previous of that being made in 2016. The game has become a classic to many PC gamers, with the prolific “But Can It Run Crysis?” meme coming into its own after the game’s release for its demanding graphical effects.
Crysis Remastered features the original game’s single-player campaign. The publisher added that the game has been updated with high-quality textures, HD texture pack, improved art assets, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, parallax occlusion mapping, and particle effects (where applicable).
It was also shared that volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections will be included where available. One of the caveats seems to be that there is no real word on whether or not Warhead, the standalone expansion to Crysis. While it is not necessary, that would be a nice addition, as it included more multiplayer modes and an alternate.
This announcement is an excellent way for people to experience the legendary classic that pushed hardware to its absolute limit. With new graphical enhancements, we can be sure that the experience will be as beautiful as many people remember it.
Crysis Remastered is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC with a Summer 2020 release.
