News | Crytek Announces Crysis 4

Crytek has announced that it is working on Crysis 4.

The developer first posted a short teaser and then also published an article on its official website. In it, CEO Avni Yerli says that a fourth part in the shooter series is being worked on. “It’s finally time to confirm: yes, the next Crysis game is coming.”

According to Yerli, the game is still in an early stage of development. “But we wanted to bring you the news in time as we are very excited about the future and want to let you know that we are listening to you.”

He continues: “Crysis is incredibly important to a lot of people: gamers love it and some people who work in the industry today do it because of the first game, so we want to make sure that the next part lives up to all your expectations.” Yerli says more details about the game will be shared as development progresses.

Created by the studio behind the original Far Cry, the first Crysis is known for being extremely advanced technically for its time. Many PCs therefore had trouble running the game optimally. Last year, the developer released Crysis Remastered Trilogy for PC and consoles, which bundled a remaster of the first volume with Crysis 2 and Crysis 3.

News | Crytek may be hinting at a remaster of Crysis 2

Crytek may be hinting at the arrival of a remaster of Crysis 2.

The developer referred to the shooter released in 2011 via Twitter, after which a screenshot of the game was posted. “They used to call me Prophet” is a quote from the beginning of the sequel.

While the tweets don’t necessarily confirm that a Crysis 2 remaster is in development, Crytek previously unveiled the Crysis remaster in a similar fashion, which was then officially revealed and released. So it is possible that Crysis 2 will receive a similar treatment.

News | The Crysis Remastered graphical improvements

A new trailer of Crysis Remastered shows the game's graphics and technical improvements.

In the trailer, various images from the original game are compared with new images. Those new images are displayed in 8K resolution, should viewers have a screen that supports this resolution. The gmae can be played on PC in ‘Can it Run Crysis?’ Mode, which uses the best possible graphics.

The first person shooter Crysis originally appeared on PC in 2007 and is from Crytek, the makers of the first Far Cry. In the game, players explore a tropical island where North Korean soldiers are investigating a mysterious technology. Players are equipped with a nanosuit, with which they have superhuman powers.

The remaster will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 18. A Switch version is already available.
