Crytek has published a press release from which we learn more about what we can expect from the remastered Crysis. The game will be developed by the creators of the original and Saber Interactive (which previously worked on, among others, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt port for Nintendo Switch) and will debut in the summer. The remaster will only include the single-player story campaign. As for the changes in the visuals - in addition to refreshed textures, the creators will implement a new lighting system, better particle effects, motion blur, volumetric fog and finally software ray tracing.
Crytek officially announced Crysis Remastered. According to an earlier leak, the title is coming to PCs, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Currently we don't know when the game will be released.
Intel officially confirmed the existence of the game via Twitter by publishing a short teaser. Although the message was taken down after a while, copies of the message have been saved, for example the one below:
The original message:
- According to information released by Crytek, Crysis Remastered is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch;
- The production will see refreshed textures, new graphic options and ray tracing support;
- The return of this title has been suggested by the developers for a long time.
Although at the time of writing this news, Crytek has yet to take an official position on the matter, it's hard to imagine that the above information would only be the result of some mistake. Another matter is that Crysis' return was teased by the devs since September last year. For another signal from the devs, fans had to wait until March 25, and the next one took place two days ago.
Therefore, we can only wait for the official details. Who knows, maybe soon we will even see some trailer?
