After a slight wobble that saw the game delayed a few weeks on all platforms, Crysis Remastered’s release date is now officially locked in. The game is set to launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Game Store on Sept. 18 for $29.99.
The news comes by way of a press release earlier today. The announcement also comes in tandem with a new trailer demonstrating the game’s various visual upgrades.
The press release summarises the enhancements:
Crysis Remastered focuses on the original’s single-player campaign and is slated to contain high-quality textures up to 8K, HDR support, temporal anti-aliasing, Screen Space Directional Occlusion (SSDO), Global Illumination (SVOGI), state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, parallax occlusion mapping, Screen Space Reflections and Shadows (SSR & SSS) as well as new and updated particle effects and more.
The Nintendo Switch version of Crysis Remastered is already out, but you probably shouldn’t buy it. Twinfinite reviewed the game was very underwhelmed by its performance, scoring the game 2.5/5 and concluding:
“If you’re really looking to enjoy Crysis as it is meant to be played, I’d recommend booting up your PC and playing any of those versions. At least that way you won’t be limited in terms of fidelity, which will also likely improve gameplay fluidity simultaneously.”
