Crytek has officially released CryEngine version 5.6, which brings with it over 1,000 changes, many of which are used in Crytek's latest game Hunt: Showdown, which recently released outside of Steam Early Access. 

Within Crytek's Cryenigie 5.6 "Tech Trailer", the company has started to tease what appears to be a new project, one which is sure to ignite a fire within PC gaming circles. Yes, we are talking about a potential Crysis remaster. 

Even today, you will still hear some PC gamers ask "Can it run Crysis?", and now it appears that this question will soon return to the forefront. Just imagine Crysis, complete with modern rendering techniques and some much-needed multi-threading support. Starting at 2:17 in the trailer below, a portal opens to a scene with Crysis-like forest, a familiar-looking beat and the sounds of Crysis' main theme. 

While this is far from an official reveal for Crysis remastered, this trailer is a clear sign that Crytek is considering the project. Remasters are all the rage these days, and as far as PC gaming is concerned, Crysis is one of the biggest names there is. 
 
A Crysis remaster is something I would definitely purchase

Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    Not really. After the massive theft of the original Crysis game Crytek turned to EA to try a trim losses and enhance security.

    Maybe so RJ, but Crytek could of kept the rights, and kept  EA out of it, only offing from a publishers rights nothing more. But look what happen...

    Why not? Crysis was about pushing the technology limits. Sure it might have you playing on medium or low settings right now but five years in the future when you can play it on high settings it would still look amazing compared to a modern game.

    After seeing that it hasn't changed much if I compare to Cry Engine 2 from the original Crysis from 2006/2007.
    if running that in Ultra settings even today's hardware will be on it's knees rofl
    The upside is that CryEngine 5.xx has native Vulkan API support so things like Ray Tracing will also work on cards that don't have hardware TX, as CryTek showed in an earlier  Ray Tracing tech demo rendered with a Vega 56 for example, this way everyone can enjoy Ray Tracing via the engine it's self being rendered via the mighty Vulkan API an API that is far superior to that of Microoft's poor DX12 implantation.

    As seen here yes it's rendered by an AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 using Vulkan API

    A GTX 1080 can render this too which is cool :)

    As for Vulkan API, just one API for all platforms, all operating systems and all the consoles can take advantage of it.
    it's becoming more the main API for the PC & Console market even Smartphones s& Tablets use it widely, Vulkan Also replaced the out dated OpenGL 4.6 API as well.
    Currently there are lots of Vulkan API updates as well, so nothing but good news for the Vulkan agmers.

    Games should be for all players round and that is how it should be, a game should be for all players and not some biassed bunch of spoilt rich people.

    And I won't be surprised the old meme Can it Run Crysis? will make a comeback as well then .. cries.

    As for a new remastered Crysis, I will buy it , of course  it will be a nice addition to my Crysis Collection.
    Here a pic showing all the comics, all 6 parts, they are all factory sealed of course and a model of Prophet in the Nani Suit 2 from Crysis 2, it has 28 movable joints :)

    The 6 comics tell the story on what happened between Crysis 1 & Warhead  to the beginning of Crysis 2, it fills the gap, since the time between Crysis & Crysis 2 is like 3 years or so.
    Here more about these rare comics:

    Here my Crysis 2 Figurine of Prophet wearing his Nano Suit 2 with his GC-36C +M203 grenade Launcher

    At first I thought the software ray trace demo was awesome but then I realized how simple that scene is. One single object in the drone moving down an empty city street. It's impressive but would need to have dozen of moving objects to really be useful in a video game. People now days would want a city to at least feel as alive as GTA V and this demo will really seem simple when we see Cyberpunk 2077 with ray tracing and hundreds of people moving around a city at once.

    NVIDIA doesn't even do full ray tracing, if you didn't know it yet, they used lots of false marketing to lie to their customers and try to over sell a tech that is barely used as they have been doing for many years.
    All companies lie about certain things even AMD has lies over certain things, it's a shame it happens because personally companies need to be honest over spreading tons of lies, people are paying for these things even most don't even know what they are actually paying their coin for... anyways that is for an other topic.

    So as Ray tracing goes that Crytek Demo and NV's RTX< well sorry to hurt your feelings but they actual do about the same, only NV uses hardware and the demo uses software emulation, the effects is the same, a common gamer won't see the difference, you give a system with a Vega 56 and a RTX 2060 Super and you let both systems run the demo and not revealing what has what no one will notice as the average cabbage goes, even the Vega 64 will have a warmer image output this is known with AMD GPU's but other than the they effects being done will be the same.
    So not much difference :)

    It's all partial these days, Full ray tracing won't run on any GPU, forget it, you needs tons of 64 core EPYC CPU's stacked up to actually do this, yet by the year 2023 a 2024, by then ray tracing might make more sense, but not now, it's of no real need or purpose, most gamers won't care and just turn the effect off and choose the raw GPU power instead.
    But since all the new-gen consoles are using AMD Navi Chips and they are getting Ray Tracing as well, this might change by mid 2021 maybe a bit later but not by that much.

    So due to that I can understand why that AMD's method can greatly improve over NVIDIA's partial method, consoles are owned by 50-% of the gamers, Microsoft X-Box, Sony's PlayStation, Nintendo's Nintendo series & the Google Stadia's, they all use AMD CPU's & GPUs' and all of these will play a large role especially if ray tracing will be added using AMD's method thereby decreasing performance loss yet maintaining superb image quality yes Navi will do this with RDNA 2.0 or what ever they will call it and the PC will also get this it's all a matter of time. AMD has dominated Intel and they will dominate NVIDIA just as hard and it's about time as well, it's just one massive volcanic eruption that is about to erupt and the lava flow does the rest that is how I am experiencing this all.
    The market is going to get a lovely change with all that, well eventually, but that is good, sometimes changes can bring good results for options that cost less coin and get you similar or even better results.


    As for that Crytek scene, it's simple because it just works right, so who cares most gamers that play fast paced games won't even notice it or left alone not care about it personally I don't see the difference of RTX ON or OFF,  the darker image looks dark and lack of detail as where  the lighter image looks great and well lit, yet the darker image is the one using ray tracing and well then lol if it's that bad I never saw the point on investing 1400 euro for a GPU that can do that barely at 1440 a 1600p sorry but that just sucks if I have to be honest here.
    NV never gave me them special green glasses to see it apparently haha xD ah well.

    What Crytek did with that demo is just pure brilliance and even it's a very early stage demo they can do far more than just that, but then again most gamers would already appreciate it A it doesn't cost them over 1200 euro to pay a GPU to do that and B they can just use their old  GCN GPU or GTX 700 series GPU and higher to enjoy it.
    This means that It allows Ray Tracing to be usable for everyone and I am sure CryTek will improve it majorly, since it's a pretty old demo.

    But hey I might be wrong ya know, all cool if that is the case, it doesn't really bother me, no one is perfect that word died out long ago for me
    We all learn making mistakes and we learn from learning it correctly from resources that provide neutral and accurate information.
    Propaganda sites never work for me I ignore those.
    Yet my biggest dream is that we get more GPU brands and CPU brands too maybe?
    With that the market gets more choice, Matrox & S3 still exist would be nice if they would join in as well  then we'd have AMD, NVIDIA, Intel, ARM, Matrox, S3 & that Chinese Company, more competitions means lower and healthier prices this too will make it's move someday and such things like what CryTek did with that Ray tracing demo are just an example what is possible without the need of high taxes for overpriced VGA cards.

    With this game developers also have more choice as well, the Vulkan API will also be more GPU & OS Friendly one API for all operating systems , Hardware systems & Consoles, one API for everything.
    Then we can finally stick to Linux and use that instead :)  A neutral world is always better than a single biassed one.

    My apologies for this long comment I just like making a full post than a small one just had a alot to say of this  Ray tracing demo and everything that will go around it over times to come.

    Now back to playing with my 3dfx Voodoo3 3500 system, that is pure fun to me
    Gameplay is more important to me than graphics, most new gen games are plain awful anyways, so I am not missing out on much.
    3dfx Retro games 4 Life  xD
