Playstation Access may have leaked the release date for the current-gen version of Crysis Remastered. In its latest video (which is now set as a Private Video), Playstation Access revealed that Crysis Remastered will release on August 21st.
Theoretically, we can assume that the Xbox One and PC versions will release alongside the PS4 version. However, and whether the PC version will pack any additional graphical improvements is still unknown.
From what we know so far, Crysis Remastered will feature high-quality textures and improved art assets, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, and state-of-the-art depth of field. Moreover, it will pack new light settings, motion blur, and parallax occlusion mapping, as well as new particle effects. It also has volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen-space reflections.
A Friday release sounds plausible (at least in our opinion). After all, Crytek claimed last week that we’ll get more details about Crysis Enhanced soon. Perhaps the team is gearing up for an announcement later today (which could explain Playstation Access’ video).
For what it’s worth, the game’s initial version did not impress PC gamers. As we’ve showcased in our early graphics comparison, Crysis Remastered looked slightly better than the vanilla version. However, and compared to free mods like Crysis Enhanced Edition, Crysis Remastered looked worse. As a result of the backlash, Crytek decided to delay the current-gen version of the game.
Stay tuned for more!
