Crysis Remastered teaser trailer released, game hits Switch in Summer 2020, port being handled by Saber Interactive

Crisis averted until Summer 2020

Crytek has announced a remaster of the classic first-person shooter Crysis will be available this summer for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation®4, and Nintendo Switch. Co-developed on CRYENGINE with Saber Interactive, Crysis Remastered features the action-packed gameplay, sandbox world and epic battles of the original blockbuster title, with remastered graphics and optimizations for the latest modern hardware.

“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. “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!”

Crysis Remastered will feature the original game’s single-player campaign alongside high-quality textures, an HD texture pack, improved art assets, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, parallax occlusion mapping, and particle effects (where applicable). 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.

The original Crysis arms players with the powerful Nanosuit on the battleground of a new war against alien invaders. The Nanosuit’s speed, strength, armor and cloaking allow creative solutions for every fight, with a huge arsenal of modular weaponry to give you incredible control over your play style. Become invisible to stalk enemy patrols, boost your strength to lay waste to vehicles, and deflect damage to dominate your enemies in this enormous sandbox world.

From rumored to official in just one day, we have confirmation on Crysis Remastered coming to Switch. The port is being worked on by Saber Interactive, so it's in very competent hands!

Is EA still publishing it? Hard to believe. Switch will probably be a code in a box but the code give you Coronavirus because EA hates Nintendo players.

I see all those great graphical enhancements being thrown around and wonder if any of them will apply to the Switch version.

Not that it really matters, the other consoles won't be able to play Crysis on the go.

They'll probably aim for 1080p30 at maximum docked, but one thing is for sure.

Don't expect raytracing in the Switch version. The Switch lacks the power to do raytracing.

The only version that will have raytracing anyways is the pc.

^ At least until cross-gen ports hit the Xbox Series X and PS5.

When Crysis was released all it was talked about was the graphics, is the game itself good?
