Remastered? More like barely relaunched. Given the cultural impact Crysis had, it's quite an insult to call it a remaster and not deliver something that melts PC's again.

I mean objectively what do you think looks worse in that bottom pic, I don't think the timing is the exact same, but for the vegetation shown its clearly better in the bottom pic, plus PBR / reflections on the armour, light bleed through and GI / AO
If by objective you mean just some graphics effects slapped on without any thought for actual end result then I guess you are right. But in reality it genuinely looks worse than the original in some ways and is even unpleasant to look at judging by some of those screenshots.

nice, with the trailer not dropping yet the release date is earlier than I expected. Will play, though it looks like a weak effort. But I like this game.

I'll take og Crysis with just engine updates. The worst thing about Crysis at the moment is its limitation to pretty much a single CPU thread. Add to that some improved lighting/shadowing/reflections and we're good to go.

That said, the marketing material looks like it was cobbled together on a shoestring budget without any real idea what to do with it.

Disappointed if this is how the game is going to look. Pointless having all these snazzy tech features if the game looks worse than the original. It's certainly a 'far cry' from what we were showed in the previous trailer. I'll hold for reviews as I won't trust tomorrow's gameplay trailer. As many have stated, there are far better looking mods out there. Also wondering what involvement Saber has with this? Console ports perhaps?

Probably only going to get the high quality textures and assets on the ps5. Apparently these are only possible now because of their SSD

I dont get it. Who gives a shit about Crysis jn the first place?
I do. I played the Xbox 360 port and couldn't believe how great the gameplay was. The gameplay for the game is so underrated. It's much more worthy of a remaster than a lot of these other games getting remasters. A lof of people downplaying this game probably has never played it. Its more than just a pretty game from the past.

I'd rather Crytek do a full blown next gen remake in house though. Kind of don't understand why they'd go with Saber Interactive (who do decent work) on a current gen remaster though given that Crysis is known for world class graphics and is Crytek's baby. Hopefully this means Crytek is busy on a new Crysis.

Is it a leaked trailer?

In any case improvements are evident in this video, original Crysis had a good lighting system back in the day, but it looks flat compared with modern GI algorithms. Illumination inside buildings looked like crap.
Also, nanosuits had a poor quality in materials, muscle looks the same as steel plates.

Not only nanosuits and guns better handle materials, also the subsurface scattering on the plants seems to be improved.

It's not a complete remake, but improvements are there.

What the fuck are those shots? Looks like a remaster of far cry lol

Original crysis for reference

wow even his suit texture on his arm is awful in the "remaster". Unless this is the Switch version I don't know what to say.

What the fuck are those colours?

It uses voxel GI like hunt, you’ll see in screenshots, pretty sure posted screens are from base Xbone which as like Hunt showdown, can’t run VGI

Vs
Lmao that's a terrible screenshot of the original. These are also taken from a YouTube vanilla playthrough:





The remastered plant screenshot looks like a saturated cvar from 2007 lol

Are people frigging expecting Star Citizen levels of detail?

Jesus Christ. The game has to run on Jag systems as well, it was never going to be a pc melter. From that leaked trailer on last page I think it looks great. The improvements are obvious. Looks like cvar changes? My fucking backside it does, you go and edit some cvars and come back to me when it looks as good as the trailer.

Absolute drivel.

DUDE JUST MOVE THE SUN ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE LMAO

What the FUCK are they doing? Why is all that vegetation missing? What's with the Far Cry colours?
Aren't these screenshots from X360 Crysis version running on XOX through BC? What is their source? I can't believe it's new version.
