At least for Nintendo Switch, the new shooter Crysis Remastered has already been available for a few days. After it was unclear until now when the classic title should be supplied on consoles and PC, Crytek provided clarity at the end of the week.
As the company announced, the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC will be given a download version of Crysis Remastered on September 18, 2020. On the PC, the remaster will be available exclusively in the Epic Games Store.
In a direct comparison with the original from 2007, Crysis Remastered naturally received various technical improvements. The responsible developers at Crytek have shown this in the context of a corresponding tech trailer preview, which is available for you to view at the bottom of this article.
“For the first time a Crytek game will feature ray tracing on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro powered by CRYENGINE’s proprietary software based ray tracing solution. The PC version will additionally support NVIDIA DLSS technology and hardware-based ray tracing using NVIDIA’s VKRay Vulkan extension, for NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU,” can be read in its press release.
