Back when the first Crysis Remastered Trailed launched, we all got excited. Of course, we all know that Saber and Crytek likely rushed the trailer out the door after the leak that popped up just days before. Then, another leak of a second trailer in July had everyone up in arms over graphics and a number of other things. When the game was delayed, the studio confirmed that they had “seen all the reactions – the good and the bad – and we’re listening. We’re still working on a number of things in game, as well as the storefront.” Now, a new trailer has arrived, and boy does it look like it is going to be worth the wait.
First and foremost, the trailer above confirms that Crysis Remastered is, in fact, launching on September 18 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Outside of that, we also get to see a rather convincing comparison between the graphics of the original Crysis and the remastered version. This tech trailer shows off “high-quality textures upt o 8K resolution, lobal Illumination (SVOGI), state-of-the-art depth feels, new light settings, motion blur, ray tracing, and much more for a major visual upgrade.”
This is actually big news, as Crysis remastered has a lot to live up to. If you remember back when the game launched in 2007, it was considered the standard for graphic integrity. In fact, even the best PCs way back then would sound like they were about to launch to the moon because the game was so graphically taxing. Chances are, we may even get to relive that feeling all over again if the graphics here turn out to be as next-level as they seem. Of couse, that’s on PC only, as the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro are good and all, but they aren’t high-end PC good.
Either way, we’ll find out for sure on September 18th, less than one month from now.
