It’s time to melt those PCs again, boys! Crysis Remastered is set to be officially revealed July 1st. Crysis was notorious back during its original release for being the most demanding game on PC, an accolade it kept for a very long time. Even today, Crysis still looks really great on PC for its time. With the remaster coming, this might once again become the performance benchmark game.
It was revealed on Twitter that the reveal will be happening at 5pm GMT+1 on July 1st (12pm EST).
Crysis was originally released way back in 2007 and is a first-person shooter video game developed by Crytek and published by Electronic Arts. The game is based in a future where a massive, ancient alien-built structure has been discovered buried inside a mountain in the fictional Lingshan Islands near the coast of the east Philippines. The single-player campaign has the player assume the role of U.S. Army Delta Force soldier Jake Dunn, referred to in-game by his callsign, Nomad. Nomad is armed with various futuristic weapons and equipment, most notably a “Nanosuit” which was inspired by the real-life military concept of Future Force Warrior. In Crysis, the player fights both North Korean and extraterrestrial enemies in various environments on and around the island.
Crysis Remastered will be launching in mid-2020, so probably sometime in July or August, on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. It will definitely be interesting to compare what the game looks like on PC vs Nintendo Switch.
