Crysis Remastered Trailer Reveals September Release, Updated Graphics

The latest trailer for Crysis Remastered has revealed the final release date for the delayed versions of the game while showing off its graphical upgrades. German developer Crytek has been teasing an imminent launch of Crysis Remastered even after delaying it for certain platforms at the start of July.

When Crysis originally debuted for PC in late 2007, it was an unprecedented benchmark of graphical fidelity in video games. It pushed the available hardware of the time to the farthest possible limits, and couldn't even be ported to consoles until four years later. The game has been brought to the fore once again after Crytek announced a remastered edition that utilizes the modern version of the studio's proprietary CryEngine. But less than a month before it was set to launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch, a gameplay trailer leaked and fans saw that Crysis Remastered clearly didn't meet graphical expectations. As a result of the backlash, the game was delayed for all platforms except Nintendo Switch. Surprisingly, though, the Switch version of Crysis Remastered holds its own even with the visual compromises.

Now Crytek has revealed when players will be able to get the higher-powered version on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The developer posted a new trailer to the Crysis YouTube channel today, unveiling a September 18 release date for Crysis Remastered and comparing the technical capabilities of the remaster to the original game. Crysis Remastered will feature an overhauled lighting system with global illumination, ray tracing, support for texture resolutions up to 8K, and much more.
