After leaking this morning, Crytek has confirmed that they are releasing Crysis Remastered on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Saber Interactive – the company behind World War Z – is co-developing Crysis Remastered using the Cryengine. It features the action-packed gameplay, sandbox world, and epic battles of the original blockbuster title. This time around, it is getting remastered graphics and other optimizations.
“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.
Crysis Remastered will feature the original game’s single-player campaign. It will have high-quality textures, improved art assets, temporal anti-aliasing, new light settings, motion blur, and particle effects.
“Further additions like volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections deliver a major visual upgrade to this classic FPS experience,” Crytek says.
The announcement comes after a surprise tweet from the game’s Twitter account on Monday. At the time, I asked: “Is a new Crysis game in the works?” and speculated that a remaster might be in the cards. In fact, it just so turns out that that is the case.
The remaster is coming out in summer 2020. We expect to hear more details in the weeks to come. So stay tuned!
