Crytek has announced that DLSS can be switched on in Crysis Remastered with the game's latest update. Therefore, its performance while running on NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards with RTX may be boosted considerably. Then again, the new potential advantage is also affected by some initial bugs.

Crysis Remastered players with rigs built around RTX cards rejoice: the title's maker has announced that its latest update for PC (2.1) is "the DLSS update". Therefore, the game finally supports this NVIDIA technology, intended to boost visuals, a setting it has been missing since launch.

The new update's changelog contains an additional list of bugfixes so long it's best if you just goes to the developer's new Reddit post on the subject to see if they apply to your system. However, the long-awaited upgrade to DLSS is obviously the main event there.

Then again, the potential boost to the game it represents may have a price. Crytek has conceded that (perhaps as this is the first update with the setting enabled) that certain systems might exhibit some motion blur anomalies, as well as some issues with textures in the background, while DLSS is on.

In addition, having the Very High or Can it Run Crysis modes on under ray-tracing might result in a phenomenon by which civilian truck windows suddenly turn yellow. Finally, the anti-aliasing toggle will persistently be on, even though it is off by default if DLSS is on.

Nevertheless, many gamers may welcome the update. Console players have apparently not been neglected by Crytek, either: it has hinted at "some amazing additions" for Xbox or PlayStation in a future update for these platforms.
