Crysis Remastered Shows Off Highest Graphical Settings For The First Time

What does a 2020-era Crysis look like when pushed to its max settings? After gaining a reputation for being one of the most graphically demanding games back in 2007, when it would stress virtually any computer you could throw at it, Crysis is back to test PC rigs once more with an exclusive mode.

While Crytek has shown off how the remaster will look on consoles–including a very impressive Switch port that is already available–the latest post on the Crysis Twitter has been dedicated to the PC community. It shows off what has been called “Can It Run Crysis?” mode, a PC exclusive mode “designed to demand every last bit of your hardware with unlimited settings.”

Fans have posted screenshots of the same vista in the original game, in case you wanted to compare:

While the game has clearly come a long way since leaked screenshots led to fan outcry and the remaster reveal being temporarily delayed, the comments on this tweet are mixed. Some have criticised the color scheme for being far more saturated than the original version, while others have compared it to more recent releases running on their highest graphical settings.

Of course, there’s only so much Crytek can do with the original Crysis, given that the project is just a remaster and not a full remake. These days there is steep competition for both graphical realism and hardware demands, with Microsoft Flight Simulator recently making waves in both.

Crysis Remastered has already released on Switch, and will be coming to PC (via the Epic Games Store), PS4, and Xbox One on September 18. Crysis Remastered’s system requirements are surprisingly reasonable given the game’s reputation.
