Crysis Remastered
Crytek

In 2007, you needed to upgrade your PC to run Crysis at max settings. In 2020, you’ll be able to play the remastered version on a Nintendo Switch.

And PlayStation 4. And Xbox One. And PC.

Originally outed by a leak on the game’s official website, the Crysis remaster has now been officially announced by publisher Crytek.

As spotted by eagle-eyed Twitter user @RobotBrush – who caught and screen-capped the slip – the remaster will bring “new graphic features, high-quality textures, and the CRYENGINE’s native hardware and API-agnostic ray tracing solution for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and – for the very first time – Nintendo Switch.”

Speaking about the remastered game, Crytek’s Avni Yerli says:

“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. 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.”

Get your first look at the game in the new teaser trailer.

Given that Crysis is set in August 2020, its planned summer release is rather appropriate. Until then, why not keep yourself busy with some free PC games?

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
