Moreover, Crysis released a statement about the upgraded technology. Indeed, the screenshots already show the significant change in the graphics. However, Crytek also detailed the nature of the upgrades. The game will include HD Texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, new light settings, motion blur, and parallax occlusion mapping. The physical engine will also be able to display particle effects. The game will also feature an early application of ray tracing. Yet, it will be software-based.
The gameplay experience between Crysis Remastered and original won’t change significantly. We will still be able to use the nanosuit and wreak havoc. The game will arrive for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on 23rd July (according to Microsoft’s page). The disk space requirement will be around 7.1 GB. Crytek is currently collaborating with Saber Interactive for the Switch port. You can watch the game’s trailer on YouTube.
