Crytek released a new Crysis Remastered comparison trailer so users can see how the remaster compares to the original 2007 release. If you think the game looked great back then, think again as this 8K Crysis Remastered tech trailer is something to marvel at.
The trailer goes through the various scenes and compares the game to the original 2007 release. However, the real magic here is the graphical enhancements users can look forward to. This includes global illumination, rippling caustics, 8K textures (including an 8K Nanosuit) ray-tracing and more. The trailer does a great job showing all of this off in glorious 8K so make sure you max out the video settings to get the most out of the trailer.
By the look of things, the game is working out to be quite a benchmark. After the Crysis Remastered announcement, fans of the series expressed their anger by the lack of “remaster” in the trailer. Crytek then delayed the game from June to September to work on improving the visual fidelity. We now have this which is a day and night difference compared to its reveal. We don’t know what it would take to run this game at 8K but we guess it could be one of those new fancy RTX 3090 GPUs.
Of course, if you have an 8K display then it is the best way to watch this. If you don’t then just pretend you do. It sometimes works. Crysis Remastered releases on 18 September 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch.
