The evolution of Crysis’s lighting; new lighting and shaders boost the game’s visuals to new levels

There is no denying that Crysis’ vanilla lighting looks a bit dated nowadays. And although you can tweak the SSAO and bring to the table some amazing results, Crytek’s member ‘Wulfen’ uploaded a video that shows off his new lighting system and the amazing combination of it with Cry-Styves’ Shaders. This combo seems quite demanding – if we can judge by the footage that is choppy, though we don’t know the user’s test system – but it surely looks sexy. This lighting/shader combo boosts Crysis visuals to a whole new level, so be sure to check this out!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
