A few days ago, the Digital Foundry portal conducted a short interview with representatives of the Crytek studio. It turned out that the developers do not plan any versions of Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 for the current generation consoles. However, the remasters will play on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 through backward compatibility, with the PS5 only offering 60 FPS and 1440p resolution. In turn, the Xbox Series X will provide its owners with a higher resolution, but Crytek representatives did not say anything about this.
In addition, Crytek did not improve the remasters of games for consoles. The second and third parts of Crysis will not receive improved shaders or ray tracing.
High resolution textures and new global illumination will be improved.
But the PC versions of the Crysis 2 and 3 remasters will sport a full range of visual enhancements, including ray tracing.
It seems like console players really won’t get what they expected this time around. Crysis Remastered Trilogy is definitely worth playing on PC.
Crysis Remastered Trilogy launches this fall on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and Switch. You can purchase the games as a bundle for $60, or separately. Unfortunately, there is currently no information on the pricing of individual projects, but we dare to assume that the price for each of the parts of Crysis will not exceed $30.
