CryEngine 3 was used for the console port of Crysis, the same engine that was used for Crysis 2 and 3. Hence, they used the engine that was optimized for consoles, CPUs with more cores, etc.

I'm no expert but I assume they were able to transfer the game code and make tweaks so the game would be less resource intensive, but made some visual improvements as well due to new features in the engine. Hence, it makes sense to stick with the more modern engine given it fixed the hardware issue you're referring to.

If anything, its a shame they weren't developing Crysis 1 on CryEngine 3 for PC as well. It would have generated more money for them, would run better and that could have been the version ideal for a future console port.

There was also a few things lost in that transition though.
Crysis 1 on CryEngine 2 had a very demanding rendering pipeline hence why the original game couldn't get downported to last gen consoles... It was like Crytek wanted the best of everything, rather than make a heap of visual compromises like they did with Crysis 2.

Hopefully we get what we want at some point... Port the games to CryEngine 5.5 and let them shine on the Playstation 4 Pro, Xbox One X and PC.

I usually wait until Major Nelson posts them as it's not long after that until you can download and play them,  If these enhancements are anything like the Red Dead Redemption level then FFXIII going to look real good on the X.

XIII looks real nice and since the original 360 was really bad port looks like it's had the most face lift compared to the other 2.  XIII-2 not so much love as I noticed some frame rate issues on later stages.

The FMV seems to have been boosted up too from the original 360's encoding!

I saw some guy on Twitter say "The cutscenes look so much better on Xbox One X!". I started to correct him and say that it can't enhance FMV cutscenes.

Boy am I glad I decided to keep my big mouth shut!

Heads up, their will probably be no new bc games releases for this year the same happen last year around this time. To many game releases + most of the team getting on holidays. Don't be surprised if their is no new up date till half january.






I would like a list of xb360 enhanced games for the X. Not sure if fable 2 is enhanced for the X.
