Crysis Remastered: graphics not that great
Crytek released a teaser trailer of a remaster for the first Crysis on April 16, 2020 and announced the sport would be launched this year. Following the discharge fans were excited to ascertain how the game’s legendary graphics would fare — but the trailer has left many fans afflicted . This has led Crytek to push the game’s release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One by several weeks.
On July 10th, Crytek announced that the Nintendo Switch version won’t be delayed and it’ll “still” arrive on July 23rd, suggesting that other versions may launch as early as August.
A trailer showing some gameplay of Crysis Remastered which is scheduled for July 23rd release date was initially leaked on YouTube, and therefore the visuals left a nasty taste in some fan’s mouths. Several commented how the game’s graphics remained significantly unchanged from the 2007 original; one fan even said the remaster “looks like original Crysis but with rock bottom settings.”
You can decide for yourself if the sport looks too almost like a 10+ year-old game:
Crysis, a sci-fi first-person shooter series originally released on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, was praised for its graphical design and remained a benchmark for people looking to check the facility of their gaming PC builds. (Its graphical fidelity warranted a meme that’s still going 10 years later.) So, when Crytek agreed to remaster the sport with “high-quality textures and improved art assets,” and yet would also inexplicably pass the “can-it-run-Crysis” test on a Nintendo Switch, we definitely perked up our ears.
Crytek acknowledged the leaks
Crytek acknowledged the leaks and therefore the disappointed fans by promising to figure on the sport a touch more. “This overtime until release will allow us to urge Crysis Remastered up to the PC and console-breaking standard you’ve come to expect from Crysis games,” Crytek said during a statement on July 1st.
In the game industry, it’s not uncommon for games to be delayed once or maybe multiple times, though it’s rare to delay a game thanks to backlash from fans. Crysis Remaster’s delay mirrors an identical move made by the movie industry last year when Paramount pushed back the discharge date for the film adaption of Sonic The Hedgehog after it received backlash regarding the planning of the titular blue hedgehog.
Update July 10th, 3:28PM ET: Crytek has confirmed that Crysis Remastered will launch on the Switch on July 23rd.
