Crysis Remastered hits PS4, Xbox One and PC on September 18th, and Crysis is set to push the envelope again. If you’re playing on PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, you can play the game with ray tracing enabled. This is the first to play with ray tracing – a rendering technique commonly used for superior lighting and reflections – on current generation hardware.
You can check it out in the video below. It shows how ray tracing is used in the remaster on consoles to create higher quality reflections. The footage doesn’t show much actual gameplay, but you can see ray tracing take effect during a brief firefight.
It’s not quite up to the level of some of the results we see on PC (check out this Cyberpunk 2077 footage with ray tracing, for example). However, this is the first time this rendering technique has ever been used on the hardware. Crysis Remastered will probably also have ray tracing on the PC. This is what the new version of the game looks like on PC with the maximum setting.
The game has already started on Nintendo Switch. However, ray tracing is not available on Nintendo̵
Ray tracing is also a critically acclaimed feature on the PS5 and Xbox X Series, and many games will use it on next-generation systems. However, Xbox Series X and PS5 versions of Crysis Remastered were not announced.
