After releasing several teasers, Crytek has officially confirmed their plans to bring their iconic first-person shooter Crysis to modern video game systems, including Nintendo Switch. The news comes by way of a new teaser trailer that features a small bit of remastered gameplay. You can check out the teaser trailer in the video below. Crytek is co-developing the remaster alongside Saber Interactive.
The first game in the Crysis series originally released for PC back in 2007. At the time, the game was lauded for its graphical fidelity and was often used as a benchmark for assessing one’s computer hardware. Crysis Remastered is shaping up to have impressive graphics as well, as it will feature high-quality textures, improved assets, new particle effects, and software-based ray tracing.

The game itself is also an engaging romp. In Crysis, players take the role of a special forces soldier who goes by the name Nomad. Players are equipped with a weaponized, energy-based Nanosuit that features state of the art technology. The Nanosuit provides players with improved speed, strength, and even cloaking capabilities. You will use your arsenal to fend off alien invaders in a massive sandbox-style world.
“We are excited to be working on the Crysis franchise again, and to bring all the Crysis fans a remaster worthy of their passion for the game,” said Crytek CEO Avni Yerli. “It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to bring Crysis back to PCs and current consoles – even Nintendo Switch – so that a whole new generation of players can experience the thrill of a battle in the Nanosuit!”
Crysis Remastered will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and of course, PC. Although no release date was specified, Crytek aims to release Crysis Remastered sometime this summer.
