Crysis Remastered coming to PC and consoles

Crysis Remastered

Andy Kelly for PC Gamer:

According to the official description on the site, Crysis Remastered will have “new graphic features”, higher quality textures and “CRYENGINE’s native hardware and API-agnostic ray tracing solution.”

Interesting timing on this one as I actually reinstalled and fired up the original Crysis a couple weeks ago but got hung up on the clunky controls. Considering its age, it still looks great.

I’ve always felt that the series got the attention it did for all the wrong reasons as the story — particularly in the first game — is really good and never really gets talked about. Though, admittedly, I’m a sucker for any sort of media that has otherworldly monsters invading and attacking an unsuspecting mankind.

I’m looking forward to giving this another try with all the updated features and, while I’m not going to be buying it on Switch, I’m curious to see how it’ll hold up on the limited hardware.
