Crytek is bringing its classic first-person shooter Crysis Remastered to Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Oooh I think we've all known its coming at some point so hopefully this will push Cryteks hand to reveal it asap. Really excited to see if they can push the PC platform like they did back in the day and the Switch version will be interesting
Crysis was the last game to push tech to a whole different level than anything we had seen up until that point. I too am I excited to see if they manage to do it again.
Yeah it was wayyyy ahead of it's time. I still think what they were able to pull off on Xbox one base with ryse was impressive. So maybe this switch version will impress as well
it's a remaster, not a remake.
Wasn't Crysis developed thinking that dual core processors were going to be at 8ghz,Instead of the 8-16core/16-32thread processors we have now?
I'd say Red Dead is somewhat that game currently, although nowhere near what Crysis 1 was to gaming tech over what 15 years ago.
Killzone 2 blew console Crysis out the water when it came out. That's an FPS that aged extremely well.
This is lame. We don’t want this game.
Killzone 2 what a joker you are hahahah
'Killzone 2 blew console Crysis out the water' It did because it was a Sony game developed by a Sony team that spent the better part of 5 years building its engine dedicated solely for one unique platform. Crysis ran on a multiplatform CryEngine, ported to look as close as possible on each to a PC game. A game 360 and PS3 couldn't have possibly hoped to emulate in all its glory visually. So it turned out to be. They looked nothing like the PC version on a decent machine, not to mention they were allergic to hitting 30FPS for more than two seconds.
The PS5 and Series X are so close, Crysis should have been developed for next gen to really flex the muscle of what this engine can do. The X-bone is going to limit it incredibly. It would have been so much more impressive on PS5 and Series X if it were made only for those consoles.
[email protected] "Killzone 2 blew console Crysis out the water' " Lol not sure if serious Killzone 2 uses pre rendering cutscenes ,same with 3 and uncharted games Unlike crysis games on ps3 and 360 Real time in game with more advanced techs quality textures etc You should see df analises first
remastered isn't a remake. it will look sharper and clean, but nothing new graphically.
hardware optimized, it will be
PC version confirmed to have raytracing.
Saints Row 3 remaster has obviously better graphics, so it seems developers have different takes on what's a remaster, and what's a remake.
Remasters can vary in quality and usually focus on basics visual and performance enhancements(see SotC). Whereas Remakes could see significant changes from the original title, like fully overhauled or new game engines, additional content and altered/expanded storylines(see FF7:R).
It amazes me that once a game that pushed even the highest end PCs to their limits can now run on a portable...
An upgraded version at that.
But can it run it
If it can run on Switch......
If it runs on a handheld it might be time to lay that meme to rest.
Was just playing the game and have to say besides the gfx the game just disnt age well.. hope they made much needed tweaks to the gameplay and story
Even back then it was more of a graphics showcase, how anyone can be excited for this is beyond me. CRYTEK have never been known for good game play.
Okay So uncharted 2007, 88 on metacritic is a game but crysis 2007 91 on metacritic is a graphics showcase Thats nice precious.. "opinions".
Hello softness - sorry to upset you. Yeah CRYSIS is known for its graphics, not its gameplay. And it is well known that Uncharted was rough, but was imported upon in its sequel. Opinions - this is the place for them isn't it?
Ryse son of rome was a fantastic game, the gfx are brilliant and the game was also good and the story was pretty good as well.
Gtfoh what do you know
All the nuffies are here now - RYSE : Son Of Rome? Pffft - scrapping the bottom of the barrel with that one. If it was any good - they'd be a sequel. Whoops - my bad - ms doesn't commission sequels to games their fans want. Just the big 3. Whoops - I did it again, they gave you CRACKDOWN 3. Which according to Dill Spencer - is coming along nicely - you lot couldn't judge a good game if it slapped you around the chops. Watch out for that forked tongue boys and girls.
I never played Crysis 1, only Crysis 2 on PC with maxed out graphics, and honestly, it was basically Call of Duty with suit powers. The graphics weren't all that impressive, and the gameplay / game design were run-of-the-mill generic shooting. The storytelling was throwaway. Supposedly Crysis 2 was dumbed-down for consoles from the start (since Crysis 1 was not designed for consoles initally). All I can say is that if C1 plays anything like C2, then the gameplay / game design is nothing special or interesting.
You know they created the farcry series
I played it for the first time on PS3 and couldn't see what the fuss was about. Plus the melee punch was so good compared to the guns that I spent most of the game setting up opportunities to slap the enemies to death.
The console versions are scaled back big time.
The console version was far more casualized than the original release. You couldn’t just run around punching people unless you were on the easiest difficulty. On the hardest you’re dead in a few bullets, the AI speaks Korean, the AI is more intelligent etc. The games meant to be played on the hardest difficulty.
Crysis wasn't really about the gameplay. It was more so a glorified benchmark test for PCs when it originally released. Can your PC run Crysis? Good, now time to play other games.
Play it on the hardest difficulty. It’s much better as you’re forced to use all suit powers in clever ways. Plus the AI speaks Korean so unless you speak Korean, you have no idea what they’re saying. The game is fantastic until the Aliens show up. Then it’s just good.
I beat the game and warhead last year and imo it has aged very well, it's very fun, I beat them both back to back.
I hope they don't tweak the game play at all, Crysis started to suck after the 1st one... I loved how fast you could move in the 1st one and how open the maps were and how impressive the physics felt and how smart the AI was. All that was worse in the sequels. I really hope they keep the game play of the original in tact.
A physical of Crysis for Switch would be off the rocker. Count me in.
Best on Switch, because it's mobile! I'm always on the move, gotta get away from the Rona
I am sry, I will probabaly get hated for this big time. But FOR ME: Switch is a joke and NINTENDO also for that part. Its like the retarded kid that want to play american football with the (normal) guys (so to speak) and so the trainer comes in and lower the standard of the whole fucking sport and push the other trainers that dont rly want to addapt to addapt, Just for him to have fun and be able to play "with the normal guys" also. PPL buying switch should just stay with there super mario graphics and low standard overall and stop (if they do) complaining that stuff is not coming to there console. If you wanna play high standard games that the devs ENJOY to make and not feel pushed to delete stuff they are proud off....then you have to pay up. Easy as that. Think of it like this: You make a beautiful game, You are so proud of it and feel so proud over the team that have pushed them selves hard to develop what they have done. Then the retards over at Nintento comes and be like: But.. But... we want that game also! Just delete 99% of what you are so proud about, We dont give a shit that you have been working for month to develop this amazing new tech and physics ! We dont give a shit about your hard work. Just give us the game !! Nintendo: Delete that, Delete this, Oh and take away those things also..... it dont run above 30 fps.. Devs that have been working day and night: But the game will look bad, Like really really bad and we don`t feel good about it because its not how our vision about the game at all was. Nintendo: WELL WE DONT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR WORK!! Release it on PC/XBox/PS4 but skip the switch.
You are 100% correct.
Are you done with your little tangent yet? When Sony offers a handheld that plays PS4 games on the Go; MS for Xbox games, natively, let me know. Until then stop being whiney and attacking a system that lets you take these experiences outside of the house. It's a freaking handheld.
It was hardly a tangent. The guy was just giving his opinion. In a fair and balanced way too I might add. Never does he insult those who own the console and support it, he just bemoans the effect it's underpowered specs may have on developers and their creative vision. I'd have been far less kind and called it a Fisher price attempt at console gaming at best.
Lazyboy it is an a tangent and a dumb one at that, most of the 3rd party games that have come to Switch are well after other versions or there’s no clear downgrade to the gameplay. Was The Witcher 3 dumbed down? How about games like Wolfenstein? We’ve seen some tech demos from crytech of what a remastered could look like and if that’s anything to go by then it won’t be dumbed down, it’ll probably just look muddy in comparison. Heck using his logic games should have been exclusive to the PC at the start of this gen because of how underpowered the consoles were in comparison.
so you are going to assume that Crytek didnt want to do the project? Maybe they wanted to push the Switch themselves to see what they could do with it? I like how u assume they're being forced to make a switch version against their will.
I agree with you but I'd say this remaster is being used to get easy revenue for Crytek as they've declined badly and need as much sales as possible, plus I suspect if it's received well by the public and critics with sakes to match, I think they'll use it to attract investment for Crysis 4.
Let me preface this comment I'm about to make with I have a switch, but sometimes owning one feels like having a Corvette with a moped engine.
If you’re going to go through this whole rant and then say release it on Pc with the current consoles, you’re being a hypocrite. Rather than switch dragging ps4/Xbox down it’s the PS4/Xbox dragging the PC down.
The Xb1/PS4 can often run games at medium-high settings with 900p-1080p resolution at 30 FPS. The Switch,however, often runs games at what would be considered low (or even below low) settings. The Switch arguably can’t run games like RDR 2, one of the most demanding on the market, but the base XB1 and PS4 can.
I understand where you're coming from but the picture you painted looks a bit oppressive and exaggerrated. Devs or Publishers are not forced to realease their games on the switch and any other platform, it's a mutual business agreement in the end of the day. I'll paint you another; Nintendo: guys we love your game and we'd be proud to have in our console's catalogue however you know we do things a bit different here and it would be great if we can work together on that we're also confident that it will be good business for all. Devs: sure why not. Tell us what you have in mind and we'll have a look at the possibilities. Take it easy. Peace.
hahaha lol, Me just writing a ( . ) got me 3 downvotes? Que? why? Never mind, i dont care why. I just wrote to say: Thanks to lazyboyblue for understanding my point of view so well.
Wow. Talk about a wall of text of nothing but straight whining... Must be pretty tiring being you
Why so serious? Devs want to make money off a 13-year-old game. Switch sells and makes money. It's easy money. No one forced them. The same goes for PS4/Xbox. Chill out it's only a video game. Stop whining.
I love that these whiney comments are just because the switch is doing so well
Dude. Grow up. You didn't have to insult anybody to get your point across. And the retarded comment was insensitive as well. The switch is good for what it is. Of course it will be downgraded. A lot of people know this by now. The game development companies will make whatever game they want to make. fans want games but it is up to the game companies in the end. I am switch owner and I can want some certain games on there if I want even if they never come to the system. Your the complainer not the people who like the switch
That's dumb. They should remake it instead for next gen. Remastered are just quick cash grab from publisher imo.
It's probably been in development for years. Why remake it anyway, it's not like it was anything more than an incredible showpiece for graphical tech.
That's the whole point of remake. Improved upon its flaws to make it better, not just shinier. It's also their chance to showcase their technology ( New Crytek Engine) for next gen. Showpiece without the bottleneck of last gen. Technology.
Bought it for the PS3 years ago,I never finished it.
This should a popular release. I hope they swap out the music it was awful and dull
Hopefully they remaster the AI, some of the worst i've ever seen, it didn't improve in Crysis 2 either.
Why not ? you don't want more games ?
Well, that's not an intelligent retort at all... Regardless, would love to see Crysis 1 on current-gen consoles.
Because it will sell, because it's Crysis 1
