Crysis Remastered will include "Can It Run Crysis" setting with "unlimited" graphics options
Sure, that gaming rig you built during quarantine looks amazing on paper, but can it run Crysis? Thanks to a new graphics setting coming to Crysis Remastered for the PC, there’s an easy way to find out.
The Crysis Twitter account tweeted about the new graphics setting with a screenshot of the game. Labeled “Can It Run Crysis,” the setting “is designed to demand every last bit of your hardware with unlimited settings.” It’s not immediately clear what the developers mean by “unlimited settings,” though.
The posted screenshot looks beautiful, but unfortunately, Twitter heavily compresses images. Thus, it’s full impact has likely been lost in translation. However, as many Twitter users pointed out in the replies, the original title still holds up.
User Isaac Clarke (@IsaacClarkeFNaF) captured the same scene in the 2007 original at max settings at 1440p. While the image from Crysis Remastered is decidedly more detailed, the original look comparable to a lot of AAA titles released this year.
Other replies criticized the color grade of the new title, claiming that it looks “like Fortnite” and disparaging the heavier saturation as giving the game a “cartoony” look.
Crysis Remastered’s minimum system requirements were enumerated last week, and they are reasonable, especially compared to 2020 game standards. Crysis Remastered can run on an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 3 and 8 GB of RAM, though a Core i5-7600K or Ryzen 5 CPU and 12 GB of RAM are recommended. Users with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or AMD Radeon 470 should be able to play the game at its lowest settings; Crytek recommends at least an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti or an AMD Radeon Vega 56, though. Of course, these specs likely won’t run the game in the “Can It Run Crysis” setting.
