Dust Off Your Nanosuit: Crysis Remastered is Heading to Modern Platforms

Crytek is bringing Crysis back for all modern platforms, alongside a wide range of improvements.

The gold-standard classic shooter Crysis is getting a hefty remaster sometime soon. It will be called (surprise) Crysis Remastered and feature a substantial graphics overhaul. It will release on all modern platforms.

The news originally came from a leak Gematsu picked up and was expanded on with an official press release from Crytek a short while later. This comes after the official Crysis Twitter account came to life just a few days ago. 

Crysis Remastered brings back the sandbox gameplay of the original and also focuses on the game’s single-player campaign. Aliens have invaded a chain of North Korean islands, and it’s up to you to wipe them out. How you do this is up to you, whether you choose your Nanosuit’s stealth for surprise attacks or go full power and devastate your enemies.

Whatever you do, you’ll do it with all the flash modern graphics can provide. Crytek says the remaster will have high-quality HD textures, temporal anti-aliasing, depth fields, new light settings, and a whole range of other improvements. It’s quite the undertaking, and Saber Interactive — of Switcher 3 fame — is helping in the development process.

Crytek’s CEO, Avni Yerli, said:

It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to bring Crysis back to PCs and current consoles — even Nintendo Switch! — so that a whole new generation of players can experience the thrill of a battle in the Nanosuit.

Crysis Remastered is set to release in Summer 2020. The events of the game begin on August 7, 2020, which has led some to believe the game will drop on or around that date, though it has not been confirmed. 

You can check out the full release over on Gematsu. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Crysis Remastered news as it appears.
