Earlier this week, Playstation Access claimed that Crysis Remastered would be released today. However, that’s not the case. Instead, Crytek released today a new tech trailer for it and announced its official release date.
Furthermore, Crytek announced that the game will release exclusively on Epic Games Store. Funnily enough, I wrote an April’s Fools joke article last year, claiming that Crysis 4 would be an Epic Games Store exclusive. And… in case you’re wondering… no; I did not have any inside info and I am certainly not a prophet.
This new tech trailer showcases some of the graphical improvements that Crysis Remastered will feature. PC gamers can expect high-quality textures up to 8K resolution, Global Illumination (SVOGI), new light settings, motion blur and ray tracing. The PC version will additionally support NVIDIA DLSS technology and hardware-based ray tracing using NVIDIA’s VKRay Vulkan extension, for NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU.
As we can clearly see in this tech trailer, the game looks significantly better than its vanilla version. So yeah, this does look better than the initial current-gen screenshots that Crytek released in June 2020. Still, it will be interesting to see whether this version is indeed based on the PS3/X360 version.
Enjoy the following tech trailer and stay tuned for more!
