    MAXIMUM hardware required.

    I'd love this to have a VR mode. One can dream...

    Hard to believe the original release is coming up on 13 years old. And it took a decent chunk of that time to be able to get hardware to run it maxed out.

    It’s why I get frustrated when people grumble about games not running maxed out. It’s great, it means they’ll scale well with hardware over the years. I can’t believe Crysis still looks so good and in many ways does things than no game has done since.

    I knew it was going to be like that based on the CE roadmap but... meh. Oh well.

    Indeed. Well if they charge full price they can do one.

    Super hyped for this! I remember running the original on an EVGA 6800GT.

    Noting quite like firing the nuke and seeing the destruction.

    Looking forward to a new generation of "Can it run Crysis" Memes :D Loved the original and will get this if it isn't a complete flop. Hopefully it will push hardware like the original!

    Excited for this, more so because of the nostalgic feeling.

    Hope its properly optimized for PC but still tank it :p.

    I was hoping for Crysis Warhead Remastered. Man that game had some of the best music around, not to mention the voice over chap who did Pyscho!

    Looking forward to this - just hope they price it right as don't want to be paying full brand new game prices but at £15-20 and I'll bite!

    Hopefully give my 2070 Super a way to stretch it's legs ...

    The original forced me to upgrade. Wonder if this will as well. :D

    Crysis was the best Crysis. :p

    But in Crysis case it was a poorly coded game. Yes it pushed tech, but many a docu-series has revealed the massive flaws in the game code that lead to this game running like a dog.

    It's being remastered to be released on the Switch too. I think you lot might be getting a bit too excited :D

    I didn't run like a dog though. I played it through several times on two different graphics cards. It scaled pretty well with the hardware.

    It may well have not been very well optimised but "running like a dog" is not true.

    It never scaled with cpu cores but yeah graphics cards scaled fine until that one core was 100%

    Ah yeah but then not sure many games utilised multi core much back then from what I remember!
