Crysis On Switch Shows Off Its Improved Physics In A New Short Clip

The Switch can definitely run Crysis--and a new tweet promises that it will improve on the original PC version.


Crysis Remastered is coming to Switch on July 23, and considering that the original 2007 game famously required a very powerful PC to run, many players are curious about how it will translate to Nintendo's hybrid console. Now, a new (very short) gameplay clip gives us some indication of how it will handle.

The three-second clip below, recorded directly from a Switch, shows off the Remastered edition's improved environment destruction and vegetation bending. There's a few other details to glean from it too--like the impressive draw distance--but three seconds isn't much to work with. Still, it confirms that the Switch iteration of the game seeks to improve on the 2007 powerhouse, when often Switch ports are more basic.

While the Switch version is launching this month, the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 versions have been delayed, and we'll have to wait to see what further tweaks or improvements they introduce. In a follow-up tweet, the official Crysis account has promised that more news on the other versions will be coming soon.

This is the first time the Crysis series has appeared on a Nintendo console. The Switch port is being handled by Saber Interactive, the studio behind the console's version of The Witcher 3.

Hopefully Crysis Remastered on Switch will be another strong port.
