Now what is really alarming here is the fact that the game will run on Nintendo Switch. As such, this won’t be a remake of the game. So yeah, don’t expect to see new levels like those found in the CRYENGINE 5.6 Tech Trailer.
From the looks of it, this remaster will look similar to what we saw in a recent trailer. At the end of this trailer, you can find a remastered scene from Crysis. That scene has some changes (like a different TOD, better post-process and a tweaked HUD). However, it still uses the same assets from the original Crysis game.
Now the good news here is that this remaster will most likely run on the latest version of CRYENGINE. As such, we can expect better CPU multi-threading capabilities. We also don’t know – at least for now – whether the PC version will be using any Ray Tracing effects.
Crytek will most likely reveal this remaster soon, so stay tuned for more!
According to its description, Crysis Remastered will have better textures and Ray Tracing. Crytek claims that these Ray Tracing effects.
“Crysis Remastered brings new graphic features, high-quality textures, and the CRYENGINE’s native hardware- and API-agnostic ray tracing solution.”
Therefore, it will be interesting to see whether Crytek has used them only for the game’s reflections or for more effects like Global Illumination and Shadows. Below you can also find a tech demo video of Neon Noir, showing what CRYENGINE is capable of.
