Crysis 3 to come with high-res textures at launch, more customization for graphics settings

Crysis 3 to launch with high-res texture pack, more graphics options to tweak

I'm a major Crysis fan--I'm sure most of you know that by now--and I think most of you are too, if only so that you can ask "but can it run Crysis?". System requirements for Crysis were outed over the weekend and now we have a bit more information about just what is coming at launch. Hint: High-res textures.




Crysis 3 will launch with high-resolution textures for PC, something Crysis 2 didn't get for quite a while. Another difference from Crysis 2 is that users will be able to customize their graphics experience a bit better than what was available at launch for Crysis 2. Crysis 2 only allowed players to customize v-sync, game resolution, HUD bobbing, and a nondescript quality setting. The following options will all be available for customization at launch:


  • Game Effects
  • Object
  • Particles
  • Post Processing
  • Shading
  • Shadows
  • Water
  • Anisotropic Filtering
  • Texture Resolution
  • Motion Blur Amount
  • Lens Flares


I can't wait to get my hands on Crysis 3.
