PC gamers can now play Crysis Remastered via the Nintendo Switch emulator, yuzu

While Crytek has not announced yet when Crysis Remastered will come out on the PC, PC gamers can play it via the Nintendo Switch emulator, yuzu. Crysis Remastered released on Nintendo Switch on July 23rd, and YouTube’s ‘reznoire’ shared a video showing the game running on yuzu.

In order to capture the following footage, reznoire used a mid-range PC configuration. The YouTuber used an Intel Core i5-7600k with EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2 and 16GB of DDR4 3200Mhz RAM.

Now as you will see, yuzu cannot run Crysis Remastered at locked 30fps. It’s obvious that the emulator still needs some additional performance optimizations. Additionally, there are some graphical glitches and artifacts. Not only that, but we don’t know whether the game is playable from start to finish. Still, it’s incredible that yuzu can even run this latest – and really demanding – Nintendo Switch game.

As we’ve already reported, Crysis Remastered on Nintendo Switch is based on the PS3/X360 version, and does not feature Ascension Mission. And, in case you’re wondering, the PC version will most likely be similar to it.

It’s also worth noting that the Nintendo Switch version of Crysis Remastered supports SVOGI. As such, the game’s interiors look better than the original Crysis. However, it can also look worse than the original Crysis in a number of scenes.

Below you can also find a comparison video between Crysis Remastered Nintendo Switch and Crysis Original PC.

Lastly, Crytek told us that it will share more details about Crysis Remastered PC/PS4/Xbox One soon.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
