So apparently Crytek is remastering Crysis...

    They must be out of ideas and money, because there's no other reason to re-release a game that still looks and plays well (even compared to modern AAA titles).

    The events of Crysis 1 begin on August 7, 2020. So it might be released this year.

    Why do these guys still exist? They make no new games and nobody wants their engine.

    "Hunt" is supposedly good, and Warhorse are using their engine for KCD 2.

    They released a new game last year and devs that want that kwel photorealism mostly use CryEngine

    In before Remastered version actually has less physics. Though if they do manage to keep everything that was cool in original while also giving it better CPU optimisation and some better AA, that would be fine.

    They can just rename it Crisys and we'll all be fooled again.

    Crysis is not a great game or a great benchmark. But it is a great meme.

    The best engine is pointless if they make everything shiny and bloomy. I hate that shit. Crysis 1 is the
    best looking of the bunch except for models and animations since they went for a fairly realistic look.

    Yeah if they go for shiny stylized looks like in sequels instead of photorealistic style that original has it's gonna be an instant failure. And that screenshot does make it look so.

    Hunt: Showdown is the best game Crytek has made, one of my favorite games, and one of the best multiplayer games ever made. Very happy to hear KCD 2 will be using the engine.

    Every time I play Hunt, I think to myself how amazing and cool it would be if Crytek made a single player FPS/RPG like STALKER in the same setting (dark, demonic Louisiana in 1895). The whole monster/bounty hunter angle lends itself perfectly to that.

    If a Crysis remaster could somehow lead to that, I'm alright with it.

    I wouldn't mind a proper Crysis 4, where they include large free roam parts from Crysis 1
    and the close quarter sections from 2 and 3. A mix of such missions would be great. I
    replayed the series recently and the more intuitive movement from parts 2 and 3 would
    work great with the larger open world mission of part 1. The environments of part 3
    were really well made and gorgeous, but sadly the missions were all linear and never opened up.
    They have all the parts and showed that they can do these things with Crysis 1-3 but never combined
    them to make the best out of it.

    The only thing that is crap in all parts of the series is the difficulty. The invisibilty of the suit trivializes
    the game on any difficulty setting. They should remove it or make it a lot less powerful if they want the game to be
    challenging at all. Go invisible kill an enemy, rinse and repeat works in each iteration and does not
    make for good gameplay.

    Crysis 1 is still the best of the series, althougth I also like 2's campgain and some small improvements they've made to the gameplay.
    Mainly how easy switching suit modes is. That radial menu restricted alot of cool stunts you could pull with the suit if the modes were tied to key inputs (for example: double tap W key to switch to Speed mode, press SHIFT to start sprinting and then double tap/hold SPACE to perform a power jump that is boosted by the maximum speed).

    Also sullynathan, you should switch that trailer for the official one that has much better image quality.

    The fact the game still looked good in 2015 says otherwise.

    Although since this one will a multiplatform release I doubt it will set any standards like the original release did.

    They'll aim for 4k on consoles, so we should probably expect downgrades.

    But.. you can already enable suit shorctuts in Crysis 1. It's an option in settings menu. I believe it was double tap backwards for armor mode, double tap crouch for cloak, double tap jump or melee for strength mode and double tap run button for speed. I never used that radial menu after trying these.

    I can't imagine how depressing it must be to work on Switch ports. "Oh boy I can't wait to come into work to make this look even shittier!"

    edit: the "edgy" rating is good way of outing yourself as a butthurt nintentranny

    The game is from 2007, so downgrades are unlikely.
    The Switch alone is 2.5-3x as powerful as the 8800 Ultra and 9800 GTX, the ram in it are also better than what there was available at the time. You could argue the CPU is shit based on raw numbers vs the CPUs at the time, but then you also have to account for the architecture and the amount of features CPUs at the time lacked.
    The problem really is that because of console limitations the devs can't go wild and push the best hardware available to their limits like they did in the original release.
