Crysis Remastered Crytek

Crysis developer Crytek rolled out the second major PC update for Crysis: Remastered which introduced both positive changes and a negative one. The update weighs in at around 2.7GB, and adds new features, introduces performance optimizations, and fixes some bugs. The major highlights of the update include general CPU optimizations and CPU-handled Ray-Tracing. Additionally, the update also makes some changes to enemy AI behavior.

However, some players have also reported that installing the update has broken the game's vegetation physics. Now, Crytek will have to roll out another update that fixes the current physics bug that most players have been complaining about. Nevertheless, if you still choose to install the update, you may want to read the full patch notes below or here:
