Crysis Remastered is embracing the meme with this graphics preset.
Crysis Remastered has the ultimate graphics preset. Named after the ‘Can it Run Crysis?’ meme, the new preset cranks up all of the game’s individual visual settings to their highest possible degree.
The official Twitter account shared a screenshot of what that looks like in-game, noting that the mode is “designed to demand every last bit of your hardware with unlimited settings.”
Today's post is dedicated to our PC community!

As impressive as it is, some in the comments are already criticising how colourful the image is compared to the original’s more muted look. The remaster does support ray tracing, but it’s not clear if it was captured with it on or off. Presumably, cranking up everything also means ray tracing will be maxed out.
All that said, there’s surprisingly little information about Crysis Remastered out there, particularly the PC version. Outside of the recently released PC specs, we only have a very brief trailer to go on.
We’ll undoubtedly learn and see more when the game drops on September 18 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
