The Crysis Remastered trailer finally made it official after weeks of teasing.
While the trailer only shows a few seconds of game footage, that quick glimpse of Nomad ready for action in the jungle is enough to make experienced fans scream their favorite Nanosuit quotes. The cheeky nod to people all over the world finally getting machines that can run the original Crysis just in time before it comes out is pretty good too.
The trailer did not tease a Crysis Remastered release date, only that it will come “soon”. It did confirm that the game will go to PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. If you tried to tell me that a small handheld console would run the game that made my graphics card sound like a jet plane in 2007, I wouldn’t have believed you.
“Crysis Remastered brings new graphics, high-quality textures and CRYENGINE’s proprietary hardware,” promised an early post on the official website, which also teased “API agnostic ray tracing solution for PC, PlayStation, Xbox and – for the first time – Nintendo Switch.”
Crysis was originally launched on the PC in 2007 as a famous, powerful technical showcase that could then only run on the most advanced gaming PCs on the market. The fact that a remastered version of the first-person shooter can run on a portable Nintendo system 13 years later, complete with ray tracing technology, shows how far the game industry has come in just over a decade.
Hopefully, Crytek will soon give us a better idea of what the game looks like in action. Whether the release of this port means we can expect a Crysis 4 in the near future is a guess, but I wouldn’t rule it out just yet. Stay tuned to GameMe for more information as it arrives.
