Crysis Remastered is ready to decloak on 18 September

While Crysis Remastered may have been delayed, it’s nice to know that Crytek at least stuck to their guns about how long they would need to patch it up and meet player’s expectations. Despite the game having a reputation for being one of the most gorgeous, GPU melting titles available back in the day, the trailers for the Remastered version left a lot to be desired. The disappointment (sometimes vitriolic, obviously) from fans pushed Crytek to delay the game’s release by an unspecified number of weeks. As it turns out, that number wasn’t really all that much (Look, I wasn’t counting so I have no idea) as the game is now launching on 18 September 2020.

To really highlight the differences between the original game and the remastered version, Crytek dropped a new trailer showing off side-by-side graphical comparisons and the difference…well, it’s pretty noticeable. Most of it seems to be lighting effects, which seems like a pretty standard improvement if you’re going to remaster anything. Beyond that, Crysis Remastered will feature 8K resolutions, a wildly unnecessary number, as well as raytracing support which is great news for the 15 people out there that can run all those things at the same time.

Crysis Remastered will be available on Steam and the Epic Games Store, apparently. I say “apparently” because there’s no page for the game yet but I have to assume that it will be coming along fairly soon. Yay for dredging up that ol’ Nanosuit once again!

    I also agree that the 8K textures are unnecessary. Especially since the geometry they are using them on still looks low poly.
    Current gen consoles can’t run SVOGI or handle 8K textures. I think they need separate trailers to show what the game would look like on each platform.

    Will the old adage: “But will it run Crysis”, going to gain traction again? I wonder because it looks like it will!

      I was also wondering if those ray trace effects they showed represent the game on all platforms. They need to clarify that so we can temper our expectations.

        To be honest Xbox 1X and pc would be capable of that, ps4 pro would maybe get a watered down version
