'Can it run Crysis?' The famous phrase was thrown around like nobody's business 15 odd years ago, as Crytek's debut Crysis game put PCs around the world through their paces. In the years following, two sequels arrived that were admittedly more catered towards console players, before the series was thrown into stasis for a good while. The question is: what will we see from the return of Crysis?
Believe it or not, it's been 10 years to the day since Crysis 3 came to Xbox right at the end of the 360 generation. 10 years! At the time, Microsoft's seventh generation console could hardly handle what Crytek was delivering with its third series entry, and we reckon the team could unleash something really special on Xbox Series X and S. We know they're working on Crysis 4 is some fashion and all we can say is - bring it on!
The Crytek Engine has long been known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to visuals, but typically, the hardware available has never properly kept up. Sure, the Crysis Remastered Trilogy at least rectified the glaring issues of Crysis on Xbox 360, but still, those were games moulded for 7th gen consoles and we can only imagine what the team could cook up for current-gen systems.
