Crysis Remastered Update Crytek

 

Crysis Remastered may have had a rough launch, however, it’s in really good shape now. The developer of the game, Crytek, has released a plethora of updates to improve the game and add missing features. While it's not perfect yet, I am sure it will get there.

A new update was released yesterday for consoles that brought several cool stuff to the game. First, consoles can now finally play Ascension. This is the level found in the original game for PC and was missing from console ports. The remastered version also lacked this level but was restored by an update in December.

Second, the update brought the Classic Nanosuit menu option to every console. And third, the game’s overall performance was improved. Some crashing issues were resolved while over a hundred bugs were fixed.

The patch optimizes the game to offer 4K at 60 FPS on consoles for the very first time. Though it is a DSR 4K, not native. For other display resolutions, every console finally has access to three different modes. You can check the resolution type and maximum frame rate supported below:

PlayStation 5 

  • Performance mode: 1080p at 60 FPS
  • Quality mode: 1800p at 60 FPS
  • Ray Tracing: 1440p at 60 FPS

Xbox Series X 

  • Performance mode: 1080p at 60 FPS
  • Quality mode: 2160p at 60 FPS
  • Ray Tracing: 1440p at 60 FPS

Xbox Series S 

  • Performance mode: 1080p at 60 FPS
  • Quality mode: 2160p at 30 FPS
  • Ray Tracing: 1080p at 30 FPS

Crysis Remastered is available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Epic Games Store. You can play them on new consoles using backward compatibility.
