A Microsoft Store listing for Crysis Remastered has revealed a lot of new details about the game, not least the release date, July 23. The game is coming to PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, which I’d argue is the most important console out of this list. All of this information was likely planned for official release tomorrow, alongside the title’s gameplay reveal. But it’s all already out in the open now.
A second Microsoft Store listing has also been found for Crysis Remastered Launch Edition. This seems set to provide access to the game two days early. The page does indicate that this edition will only be available on Xbox One, but we’ll keep you updated if that changes. Otherwise, this one also holds a new trailer for the game, providing a glimpse of how it looks all these years later. Of course, we don’t know exactly how it will look on the Switch.
As mentioned, the first gameplay trailer for Crysis Remastered is scheduled to be shown tomorrow, July 1, at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET. Judging by the trailer’s planned length on YouTube, though, this is likely the same video as the one above.
The game’s store also held three brand new screenshots.
Returning to Crysis
In Crysis Remastered, players will enter a highly advanced Nanosuit that provides increased strength, speed, armor, and even cloaking capabilities. This is important because you’ll need to adapt your tactics as you move across ever-changing environments, including frozen jungles and alien landscapes.
One of the best parts of the Crysis series is customizing your Nanosuit for each encounter. You can swap modules in and out to provide more abilities that suit either your playstyle or your chosen approach for the current situation. That’s good news for you, as the enemy AI is lifelike and will act in unexpected ways. Foes will hunt you down and pop up where you least expect them.
Finally, a list of achievements for the game has also been uncovered. You can check them out here, though it’s unlikely they will appear in the Nintendo Switch version.
