Crysis Remastered looks launched on 23 July for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, thanks to a premature Microsoft Store listing. Developer Crytek is set to debut the first gameplay trailer for the upcoming remasters on July 1 at 9 a.m. PT/12 noon ET/5 noon BST, and would then probably have announced the release date, but it seems that the Microsoft Store has robbed Crytek of that possibility.
The page gives an overview of the game and confirms that the game will support 4K and HDR on Xbox One X. It also contains three new screenshots of the game in action.
“Crytek’s classic first-person shooter is back with the action-packed gameplay, sandbox world, and exciting epic battles you’ve now enjoyed for the first time, with remastered graphics optimized for a new generation of hardware,” says the list.
Interestingly, the game weighs just 7.01 GB, which means it doesn’t take up too much space on your hard drive. It seems that stealth is not an option for Crysis Remastered since the first announcement of the game has also been leaked in advance. Still, we look forward to playing Crytek’s magnum opus and notoriously graphic intensive game on Nintendo Switch.
After all, in 2007 the power of the PC hardware was often judged by one simple question: “Can it run Crysis? To see the game running on what is essentially a handheld is quite an achievement, especially since the game promises to take advantage of Crytek’s full package of technological improvements.
