The PC trailer for Crytek’s heavily anticipated Crysis remaster has leaked ahead of tomorrow’s official debut. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look all that good, especially in light of the beautiful mods and texture packs that have been released for the original over the years. The trailer also boldly states that all gameplay was “captured directly from PC,” so we know exactly what we’re looking at – console hardware can’t be blamed here, folks.
So, what’s the point of Crysis Remastered if it barely looks better than the original? We suppose that it might be interesting for folks who are too lazy to deal with mods, although Crytek did brag about the remaster getting a ton of modern features.
“Crysis Remastered will focus on the original game’s single-player campaigns and is slated to contain high-quality textures and improved art assets, an HD texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, and parallax occlusion mapping, particle effects will also be added where applicable,” the company said in its original announcement. “Further additions such as volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections provide the game with a major visual upgrade.”
We can only hope that Crytek hit a home run with these improvements and that the majority of them were, for whatever reason, turned off during this particular trailer. Crysis Remastered is due out on July 23.
