The developers behind the Crysis series, Crytek, have officially announced the development of Crysis 4 with an announcement trailer.

It’s been nine years since Crysis 3 was released, but thankfully fans have been able to relive the experience recently through the Crysis Remastered Trilogy, which was released in 2021.

The Crysis franchise has always been known for pushing the bar when it comes to graphics, mechanics, and overall innovation when it comes to game development. Now, in 2022, the developers have teased a fourth game, getting fans excited for a new next-gen experience.

A lot has changed since Crysis was released. At the time, the games were extremely impressive and stood as a benchmark for the power of a PC with the phrase “can it run Crysis?”

The games were innovative and took advantage of the most up-to-date technology of the times. Now in 2022, Crysis 4 is officially happening, and the developers are looking to continue the trend of creating a “truly next-gen shooter,” as they stated in their announcement blog post.

Does Crysis 4 have a release date?

Crysis 4 has only just been announced, so unfortunately there is no official release date for the game. Having said that, the developers did give players an inclination as to how far they are through development:

“Right now the game is in the early stages of development so it will be a while yet…as development progresses we will release more details when we can.”

Despite being in early development, the developers seem committed to creating another installment of Crysis that lives up to the expectations of the original games.

As more information is uncovered about Crysis 4, we will be sure to update this piece so make sure you check back here soon.

What platforms will Crysis 4 be available on?

It’s unclear exactly which platforms Crysis 4 will be available on, as the game is so early on in development.

However, as the blog post mentions the developer’s aim to create a “truly next-gen shooter,” we can safely say that the game will likely be available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

It could also be available on the previous generation of consoles, but due to the franchise’s reputation of pushing hardware to the limit, we’ll have to wait for official news. Again, once more information regarding the available platforms is released, we will update this article.

Along with the blog post, Crytek also released a teaser for the game. The trailer is only an announcement for the working title, but will still get fans of the original games hyped for its release and development.

The trailer features some pretty impressive visuals, with the iconic Crysis helmet being visible for a short second as rubble starts to fall and cover it up.

Hopefully, these visuals will translate into the game, as the video is definitely visually pleasing and high quality.

The good news is that Fishing Holes aren’t hard to find, as they exist in most bodies of water across the Fortnite map. You’ll know you’ve found one if you see white ripples in the water along with signs of underwater creatures.

Visiting Fishing Holes provides you the opportunity to catch fish with different effects such as regenerating your health or instantly killing enemies. While these spots can be found all over the island, some are richer than others.

Here are the best Fishing Hole locations in Fortnite:

  • In the center of Loot Lake, just east of Fortress
  • Around Fisher’s Paradise, west of Logjam Lumberyard
  • Around Lofty Lighthouse, north of Sleepy Sound
  • Between Cuddle Cruisers and Looper Landing, just east of the Daily Bugle
  • West of Launchpad island, just south of the Daily Bugle
  • Between Seven Outpost VII and Launchpad
  • East of Outpost IV, just south of Condo Canyon
  • East of Turbine island, just south of Greasy Grove

In order to complete this Resistance Quest, you’ll need a fishing tool like a harpoon or a fishing rod. You can normally find these inside barrels, chests, or as good loot near fishing areas.

Once you’ve acquired a fishing tool, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Visit a Fishing Spot,
  2. Equip your fishing rod
  3. Hold the action button to set the angle of your cast
  4. Let go of the button once it’s at the center of the fishing spot to throw the line
  5. Wait for something to tug your line
  6. Use the action button to start reeling in your catch

If you see Mech Parts appear in the water after this, you’ll have to dive in and swim towards them in order to collect them. Just keep fishing until you find 3 Mech Parts to complete Resistance Quest and you’ll earn 23,000 XP.

Apex Legends players are jealous of superior mobile features

The Apex Legends community is seemingly jealous about some of the “better” features seen in the mobile version of the battle royale.

Now that players have finally been able to get their hands on the mobile version of Apex Legends, console and PC players are jealous about some of its exclusive features.

Apex Legends Mobile has officially launched, introducing the increasingly popular battle royale to the massive mobile gaming community.

As well as an exclusive Legend, Fade, the Apex community is realizing that the mobile version has other great exclusive features as well.

Reddit user JustNatass put a post up on the Apex Legend subreddit highlighting one of Apex Legends Mobile’s features that is not seen in the PC and console versions of the game.

The user even states that it’s “one of the many examples of how mobile apex has better features then normal apex.”

On Apex Legends Mobile, all of the Legends are unlocked in the Firing Range, which is great as it allows players to try them all and figure out which ones they would like to unlock based on gameplay.

Although it seems small, it’s something that PC and console players have asked for “multiple times.” Further, in the comments, players are mentioning more mobile-exclusive features such as “unlimited ammo in the firing range,” which players have also asked for on PC and console.

Some players even like the perk system in Apex Legends Mobile that isn’t in the traditional version of the game: “I also like how you can unlock different perks.”

There are many other features that are exclusive to the mobile version of Apex Legends, including a Team Deathmatch mode and the ability to go third-person.

Of course, not all of the mobile features will work on the PC and console versions of Apex Legends, but small features like the one mentioned in the Reddit post could definitely be added.
