With the recent release of Crysis 3's system requirements, PCGamer has received confirmation from EA and Crytek of other settings that will be available in the game.
Crysis 2 on PC was an absolute sham! It only had 4 tweakable options: v-sync, resolution, HUD bobbing and a general quality setting. A patch remedied this to a degree and fan made content also helped out but it was still very, very disappointing. Thankfully the good news is that Crysis 3 will have an "Advanced Graphics Options".
- Game Effects
- Post Processing
- Anisotropic Filtering
- Texture Resolution
- Motion Blur Amount
- Lens Flares
While these are great settings and are a very, very welcome addition to the game I can't help but feel a bit ambivalent. These options would have been considered as standard for a PC game not all that long ago but are now touted as "Advanced"! All that aside though, with high resolution textures and "Advanced" options, this game is looking like it could be very well optimized for PC's.
