Crysis Remastered brings the ‘Can it speed Crysis?’ meme to new skills

Crytek currently formally published it’s releasing a remastering of its infamous recreation, Crysis. It’s coming out now no longer upright for all fresh-skills consoles, but moreover for PC. I’m hoping that suggests we observe the total wee tiny gamers accessible asking themselves the ask us oldsters had been asking ourselves for years: “But can it speed Crysis?”


You’ve been asking. You’ve been ready.

At the present time, that wait is over. It’s coming:

The reliable Crysis Twitter, which has been dormant for years, made a comeback to repeat the recreation upright as screenshots of the featured image, which modified into once reportedly save up early and then all of sudden taken down from developer Crytek’s web save, began making the rounds. Consistent with Crytek’s press free up, the remastered recreation may perhaps presumably accept as true with “remastered graphics and optimizations for a brand new skills of hardware.”

In case you’ve been dwelling below a rock, Crysis modified into once a 2007 first-person shooter, at the time a PC unique, that modified into once injurious for its steep hardware requirements. To come up with some belief of how great of a hog the recreation modified into once, Digital Foundry reported in 2018: “mix the most modern and finest Intel Core i7 8700Okay overclocked to 5.0GHz with an Nvidia Titan Xp and there’ll tranquil be areas of the recreation that drop below 60fps – even at 1080p.” Whether or now no longer that’s since the recreation is tranquil a sizable ol’ hog, or on account of it’s now no longer optimized to speed on well-liked hardware, I go for my more technically-minded colleagues to negate.

Over time, it modified into virtually de rigueur for somebody to negate, upon seeing a mighty PC or PC ingredient, to negate, “But can it speed Crysis?” As PC Gamer infamous on Crysis‘s 10th anniversary, this proper phrase has fallen out of vogue, with younger gamers now no longer really conception the that suggests within the support of it. With the remastering of the recreation for the most modern hardware, I’m staring at for (read: hoping) to peep a resurgence within the meme, on account of it’s one among gaming’s finest.

I’m light ample to comprise in ideas the total “But can it speed Crysis?” meme prior to it even may perhaps presumably had been known as a meme — though granted, I modified into once a console gamer at the time, so it modified into once more on the periphery of my conception than the forefront. The humorous thing modified into when I don’t mediate I may perhaps presumably accept as true with stumbled on one single one that can perhaps presumably describe me what Crysis modified into once about. They may perhaps all describe me how it looked, but I’ll be damned if, 13 years later, I will be able to protest you a single thing about this recreation’s sage. It’s virtually admire a parody of the so-known as PC Grasp Bustle’s preoccupation with a recreation’s visual je ne sais quoi over how it performs — a preoccupation that’s died down considerably over the years, but tranquil exists.

Serene, within the occasion that they’re beefing up Crysis with the most modern graphical upgrades, I’m now no longer certain if even my newly-built PC may perhaps be in a save to contend with it. We’ll want to search out out.

Crysis Remastered is attributable to return out on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch “soon.”
