Will your PC run Crysis 4? We’re about to find out
Crytek has teased a new entry in its long term Crysis series in one short trailer posted from his Twitter account. “Join the journey. Become the hero,” the trailer reads, displaying a capital “4.” The announcement comes nearly nine years after the publication of the last numbered entry in the Crysis series, Crysis 3, released on February 19, 2013.
The official Crysis 4 The teaser comes just hours after Crytek China appeared to confirm news of the game at the start of a post on Chinese social media site BiliBili. His post, which now appears to have been deleted, read “The ‘Crysis The 4′ project is confirmed, opening up a new nano battlefield!” once translated into English, according to Eurogamer.
Although the Crysis The trilogy has been well received by critics, it’s fair to say that much of its legacy has been dominated by the original games’ reputation for demanding a powerful gaming PC at its best. Punishing system requirements meant that only the most powerful gaming PCs could run 2007 Crysis at maximum settings when first released, and now “Can it run Crysis?” has become one of the internet’s canonical memes.
There’s no information in Crytek’s teaser on when we might see Crysis 4 version, or what platforms it might be released on. But it seems fair to assume it will appear on PC, alongside current-gen consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X. If you want to catch up on the series in the meantime, 2021 Crysis Remastered is an excellent starting point.
