Crytek finally announced an official gameplay reveal trailer for the much awaited Crysis Remastered
Crysis Remastered was officially announced in April, 2020. A leak confirmed to bring higher texture quality and new graphic features to the game. Cryengine is introducing its native hardware and API-agnostic ray tracing solution to the first person shooter famous for bringing powerful PCs to their knees.
Although there is no release date, we do have a date set for our first glimpse at the Crysis Remastered gameplay, which will be revealed on July 1 at 9 am Pacific Time / 12 pm Eastern Time.
YouTube broadcast did not provide any details, other than that the game will be featuring “remastered graphics optimized for a new generation of hardware”, whereas the website shows only “coming soon” for now. The Crysis Twitter handle suggests that it will be available soon by saying that “Suit up, The wait is almost over.”
Metacritic says we scored the Crysis 2007 a 98/100 in our holiday 2007 issue, remarking it “a creative and technological marvel that eclipses every other shooter released this year”. I am really looking forward to it not just for playing it again, but to see if it will push PCs to the extreme the way it originally did.
The gameplay reveal is probably going to be just a showcase for graphical excellence performance. We already know how Crysis – a 13-year-old game – is played. It is remarked as a faithful remaster, so we will not be able to see a lot of new stuff in the gameplay department. Maybe some weapons and abilities from Crysis 2 or Crysis 3 will be added to the remaster for the fun of it or perhaps some new objectives or ways to clear the missions.
Even so, a graphic excellence showcase sounds just fine. The reason that Crysis Remastered is so exciting is that the original game was the peak of graphical performance and high performance GPU demand in its prime. It was also a trial by fire for the video cards and many are still hoping that the remaster continues the tradition.
