Crysis Remastered

Crytek has announced Crysis Remastered for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. It is co-developed by Saber Interactive and will launch this summer.

“We are excited to be working on the Crysis franchise again, and to bring all the Crysis fans a remaster worthy of their passion for the game,” said Crytek CEO Avni Yerli in a press release. “It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to bring Crysis back to PCs and current consoles—even Nintendo Switch!—so that a whole new generation of players can experience the thrill of a battle in the Nanosuit.”

Here is an overview of Crysis Remastered, via Crytek:

The classic first person shooter is back with the action-packed gameplay, sandbox world, and thrilling epic battles players loved the first time around—with remastered graphics and optimizations for a new generation of hardware co-developed on CRYENGINE with Saber Interactive. Starting this summer, Crysis Remastered will be available for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and for Nintendo Switch.

Crysis Remastered will focus on the original game’s single-player campaigns and is slated to contain high-quality textures and improved art assets, an HD texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, and parallax occlusion mapping, particle effects will also be added where applicable. Further additions such as volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections provide the game with a major visual upgrade.

In Crysis 1, 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, armor, 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 first launched for PC in November 2007, followed by PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in October 2011.
