Earlier this summer season, Crytek introduced they’ll be following up final 12 months’s Crysis Remastered with Crysis Remastered Trilogy, which is able to embrace up to date variations of each recreation within the collection. Sadly, in the event you have been hoping for a visible feast on next-gen consoles, you’re in for a disappointment. In a recent Digital Foundry interview with Crytek, it was revealed there received’t be any native next-gen console variations of Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 – they’ll merely be playable by way of backward compatibility, with the PS5 providing 1440p decision and a goal 60fps. The Xbox Collection X ought to provide the next decision. You possibly can take a look at some footage of Crysis 2 working on PS5 in Digital Foundry’s full video, beneath.
It appears Crysis Remastered Trilogy just isn’t solely restricted to backward compatibility, however it will likely be fairly restricted backward compatibility at that. Crytek is not going to offer a number of visible modes or ray-tracing on next-gen consoles, however fairly specializing in a single choice that balances decision and efficiency. That stated, there’s some effort being put into these remasters, as textures have been upgraded, and new lighting, together with real-time international illumination, has been added. Saber is as soon as once more taking the lead on improvement, however this time round Crytek is taking extra of a hands-on strategy as effectively. The Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 remasters can even be based mostly on PC code throughout all platforms (the unique Crysis Remastered used Xbox 360 and PS3 code on consoles).
After all, none of those limitations apply to the PC model, the place a full vary of visible choices, together with ray tracing, will probably be obtainable. It actually appears like console gamers are being thrown to the wolves this time round – certain, you’ll be able to play Crysis Remastered Trilogy on consoles, however it’s fairly clear PC is the agency focus following the problems with the primary remaster.
Crysis Remastered Trilogy involves PC, Xbox One, Xbox Collection X/S, PS4, PS5, and Swap someday this Fall. You’ll be capable of purchase the video games as a $60 bundle or individually.
