Crysis, As It Was Kind of Meant to Be Played
Crysis set an incredibly high bar for PC gaming back in 2007. With last year’s release of Crysis Remastered, it did it again. This time, it took consoles along for the ride. Though the Xbox One and PS4 versions were not quite reaching their potential, the new generation of consoles are here to pick up show us what they are capable of. Crysis Remastered is now available on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S and Crytek has given us a breakdown of the improvements and fixes they have made on these platforms.
As far as content and quality of life improvements, the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 versions now allow players to use the classic Nanosuit controls. It also includes the second to last mission in the campaign Ascension, which was not on the previous console versions of Crysis or Crysis Remastered. Ascension was exclusive to the PC games until now. Now the REAL Crysis stuff. On Xbox Series X|S and PS5, players can choose to run the game in Performance Mode, Quality Mode, or Ray Tracing. Each mode has different benefits to play with, but the performance specs differ between PS5, Xbox Series X, and S versions.
Crysis Remastered console update is now live for PlayStation 4/5 and Xbox One / Series X/S players!
