Crytek reveals Crysis Remastered’s improved Switch features

Crytek has released more information about the Switch version of Crysis Remastered, confirming that the game will be 6.2GB in size on the console and feature new features which the game’s original incarnation didn’t possess. 

For starters, the Switch edition of Crysis Remastered will feature “improved destructible environment and vegetation bending features”, while also featuring “dynamic lighting” and “new light settings. These changes will help boost the immersive of Crysis’ already highly interactive world. 

With the Switch release of Crysis, Gyro aiming has also been confirmed as a feature for the game, which is great news for users of this Switch-specific control method. 

Last week, Crytek confirmed that Crysis Remastered will be releasing on Nintendo’s Switch console on July 23rd, despite the company’s prior announcement that the game was delayed on all platforms for further polish. 

As it stands, it looks like Nintendo’s Switch console doesn’t have much room for further graphical improvements, making the game release-ready. Now, only the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Crysis Remastered have been delayed, each of which is said to be receiving further graphical enhancements prior to the game’s launch. 

Crytek has only stated that the game will only be delayed by “a few weeks” on non-Switch platforms, allowing the game’s developers to spend more time “polishing the game”. With Crysis Remastered, Crytek plans to maintain its “PC- and console-breaking standard”, and wants to spend some more time adding more improvements to the game.   

This delay follows the leak of a Crysis Remastered first gameplay trailer online, which was harshly criticised by much of the Crysis fanbase. To many, the game’s graphical improvements were not enough to satisfy gamers, though it is worth noting that this leaked trailer sported a low resolution, which limited the detail of the trailer. Even so, this backlash has force Crytek to rework Crysis Remastered, which means that PC and console gamers can expect even better graphics from the title when it releases later this year.  

Crysis Remastered currently costs $29.99 on Nintendo Switch through the Nintendo eShop.
