“But can it run Crysis?” Well, we’re about to find out just how far Crysis can go on all current-gen platforms including Nintendo Switch and its modest, but dependable Nvidia Tegra X1 processor.
If you’ve never heard the question – “But can it run Crysis?” – have you really paid any attention to the Crysis franchise? You know, the franchise that put them on the radar for everyone in the world back in the mid-2000s? Well, you’re about to find out as Crytek (Hunt: The Showdown, Crysis) has revealed they are currently working on a remaster of the 2007 classic.
Crytek and Saber Interactive have teamed up thanks to Saber Interactive’s ability to bring The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, to Nintendo Switch. Crytek has confirmed that Crysis Remastered will be launching on all current-gen platforms and will be giving us an all-new experience featuring a variety of graphical enhancements including support for software-based ray tracing, which will make the shooter push graphical capabilities even further.
Even to this day, Crysis is no stranger to pushing PCs to their limits, melting them, literally, if the game is pushed to the max on modern hardware. It’s an insane and technical marvel to behold, but now, it seems Crytek is taking the necessary steps to ensure that the game is a lot friendlier to modern hardware than it has been for 13 years.
