Next-Gen Support Modes

Crysis Remastered just got a little bit better on next-gen consoles with this new update.

Now, both the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 will have a number of gameplay modes that offer up 60FPS support and Ray-Tracing features.

Crysis Remastered will have a Performance Mode, a Quality Mode, and a Ray-Tracing Mode. Like other games, Performance Mode is solid 60FPS at 1080p. Quality Mode pushes this to upscaled 4K and 60FPS cap and Ray-Tracing Mode adds Ray-Tracing!

STUNNING - Crysis has always been a stunning game and this is update proves that

The only downside is that if you want Ray-Tracing on an Xbox Series S, you'll be capped at 30FPS. We think that's a pretty fair trade-off given the graphical improvement.

New Content

In addition to the new next-gen support features and improvements, there's actually some new Crysis content coming to this update for free.

The Ascension Level has been added and this is the first time this will be available on consoles!

COMPLETE - Finally, console players will be able to enjoy the full Crysis experience

The mission is the tenth level of Crysis and has the player piloting an Mv-24H Vulture VTOL off of the island. It's not clear if this will be slotted in before the Reckoning finale or whether it will be an additional end-game scene, though.

Still, the Classic Nanosuit has also been added in this new Crysis Remastered update so another playthrough might be needed!
