Crysis Remastered System Requirements Are More Reasonable Than Expected

Crysis Remastered is just around the corner. The game will be here in two weeks and we still haven’t seen any actual in-game footage. Crysis Remastered was supposed to launch in August, but it was later delayed for more polish. The real reason for the delay was probably the criticism from fans about the ‘updated graphics’ that were shown in the leaked trailer.

While we wait for proper gameplay footage, developer Crytek has released the official system requirements for Crysis Remastered. Thankfully, we won’t have to say ‘But, can it run Crysis?’ anymore. The game doesn’t seem to be that demanding. However, we still don’t know whether the recommended settings are for 1080p at 60FPS or 30FPS. Developers really need to start mentioning that.

Windows 10 64-bit is compulsory for Crysis Remastered. For minimum settings, the game will need an Intel Core i5-3450 or AMD Ryzen 3 paired with either an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or an AMD Radeon 470. 8GB of main memory and 4GB of GPU memory are also needed.

The recommended system requirements is where things change a bit. You will need either an Intel Core i5-7600k or AMD Ryzen 5 CPU paired with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti or an AMD Radeon Vega 56. Main memory and GPU memory requirements are also increased to 12GB and 8GB respectively. You won’t have to worry about your HDD space at least. The game will only need 20GB of HDD space. That’s less than a Modern Warfare update.

The official system requirements are below, as mentioned on the Epic Games Store.
