Crysis 2 and 3 Remastered are supposed to release this fall, and now there is a first-look at what the remastered version of Crysis 2 runs like on the PlayStation 5. It’s all thanks to a new video from Digital Foundry.
The game will run close to a locked 60fps at 1440p native resolution on the PlayStation 5, with Digital Foundry noting thy expect higher resolution to be possible on the Xbox Series X. Digital Foundry described it as cross-generational, meaning the game is running on a PlayStation 4 codebase but can be played on a PS5. A Nintendo Switch version of Crysis 2 and 3 Remastered is supposed to run at a stable 30fps.
Digital Foundry added that the development of the remastered games has gone through some changes. Developer Saber Interactive is still in charge of the project, but they are now working more closely with Crytk to “better realize the potential of the project.” It should be mentioned that Digital Foundry did consult on the project by looking at early builds of the game and offering feedback, which they did for free.
The remasters of Crysis 2 and 3 are based on the PC version of the originals. The Crysis Remastered that was released last year was actually based off the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.
The PC version of Crysis 2 Remastered will support ray tracing along with more visual options, but these features won’t be available in the console version of the game. Crytek is “concentrating on getting the right balance between fidelity and performance in one single mode.”
