Crysis Remastered got a brand new trailer which shows off some stunning visuals in comparison to the original, as well as a release date. The game is now coming out on September 18, 2020, for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. It is an Epic Game Store exclusive on the PC, though.
Crysis Remastered Is Already Out For The Nintendo Switch
The game has been out on the Nintendo Switch for a while. It came out on the hybrid system on July 23, 2020, which is when it was originally supposed to come out on all platforms. However, the game’s original trailer leaked online, and fans weren’t impressed with what they saw.
The Crysis series is known for its incredible visuals and demanding system requirements. The footage in that leaked trailer didn’t show enough of an upgrade over the original Crysis, though. So, Crytek decided that they’d delay its release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Delay Has Allowed The Developers To Meet Fans’ Expectations
“The extra time until release will allow us to get Crysis Remastered up to the PC – and console-breaking standard you’ve come to expect from the Crysis games,” read their delay announcement.
Based on what we’re seeing in this new trailer, they seem to have kept their promise. The game will now have a bunch of visual improvements over the original. It boasts new lighting and updated assets, 8K textures, and ray traced reflections for water and other surfaces.
The Crysis Series Has Always Been On The Cutting Edge Graphically
This doesn’t mean that the game will run in 8K on every system, of course. Its console version is still likely locked at 4K at most. Most PCs won’t be able to hit that ridiculous 8K resolution, either. Still, that’s the kind of absurd, extreme visual fidelity that we expect from the Crysis games.
They’ve always been on the cutting-edge of gaming in terms of graphics. I usually wouldn’t put too much stock in the absolute best visuals myself, but this series is an exception.
