Crysis Remastered Update 1.2.0 delivers CPU optimisations, bug fixes and improved AI

- Update - We have now tested Crysis Remastered's Patch 1.2.0. You can read our analysis on this patch here

A new patch has just landed for Crysis Remastered, and it is a big deal, offering PC gamers a multitude of improvements and bug fixes which allow the game to play and run better than ever. 

The most impactful of these changes is patch 1.2.0's CPU optimisations, offering gamers both generalised CPU optimisations as well as "optimised ray tracing CPU side processing". While more performance upgrades are in progress, this change alone should make Crysis Remastered's highest settings much more playable on modern systems. 

Over the coming days, we plan to retest Crysis Remastered to see how this patch impacts the game's CPU performance, and see whether or not this patch can enable smooth 60+ FPS framerates when using the game's higher presets. Before now, we recommended that all PC gamers turned off Ray Tracing in Crysis Remastered, but that could change if this patch has had its desired effect. 

Below are the full release notes for Crysis' 1.2.0 patch. PC gamers can read our full PC Performance Analysis on the game here. Please note that this performance review was written before the release of Crysis Remastered's post-launch patches.

Awesome. Thankfully they will keep going on this and keep making it better.

I kinda knew this was going to happen. You can't remaster a game in six months flat.Quote

The fact they even pulled it off is a miracle to be fair.

It's a shame they didn't go the full remake route with Cryengine5, Full on photogrammetry, Really push the boundaries on RT, Lighting, Physics, Tessellation, Water simulation, Foliage, Gun physics and sounds etc... Would've been immense.Quote

They don't have the budget. Their engine just hasn't caught on sadly, and they have thrown pretty much everything into it.Quote
