After months of anticipation, developer Crytek and Saber Interactive have launched Crysis Remastered on Switch.
Players can now purchase the revival of this classic FPS via the Switch eshop, an astonishing feat given Crysis’ reputation as an extremely graphic intensive game. The developers have also shared a new launch trailer, which you can find below:
Today Crytek announced the launch of Crysis Remastered on Nintendo Switch! The remaster of the acclaimed first-person shooter was developed and optimized in partnership with Saber Interactive. Crysis Remastered is available today for just 29.99 USD/EUR.
Players can revisit (or experience for the very first time) this classic FPS on an all-new platform. Discover the game’s groundbreaking visuals, destructible world, and adaptive gameplay on the Switch with optimizations like vegetation bending, upgraded textures, depth of field and motion blur, enhanced dynamic lighting, global illumination (SVOGI), and gyro aiming.
“We are really excited to be bringing Crysis to players on a whole new platform. This will be Crysis’ first time on a Nintendo console, as well as its first time on a handheld, and we think Switch players are going to love it,” said Crytek CEO Avni Yerli. “Crysis has always been a special title for us, and this release is a celebration of the passion the Crysis community has continued to bring to the franchise since its release.”
“The original Crysis was known for hardware-melting graphics, so bringing Crysis to the Switch has been a fun and challenging project,” said Andrey Jones, COO of Saber Interactive. “Our team also brought The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to Nintendo Switch last year, and that experience in combination with the power of the CRYENGINE are what made the whole thing possible.”
Get Crysis Remastered on Switch now via the Nintendo eShop.
