Crypt of the Serpent King Remastered 4K brings the dungeon crawler from Rendercore Games to PlayStation 5 with eastasiasoft as its publisher. The game was originally released on PlayStation 4 way back in 2018, and it’0s now been revamped for Sony’s current-gen console. You’ll take on a first-person hack and slash in which you’ll battle goblins, giant spiders, orcs, skeletons, and more, as you try to collect all of the treasure on your path as you prepare to take on the boss for each of the different dungeons you’ll explore.
You’ll move through each level with the left analog stick as you look around and aim with the right one. You can jump with the X button and can attack with the R2 button. To change weapons, press the R1 button. The Square button can be used to open treasure chests and collect items. You must collect all of the keys from altars on each stage to be able to open the gate that will lead you to the boss room.
Always open every treasure chest you find since they will reward you with gold, items, as well as with food that can be used to restore your lost health. Gold is important since it can be used at the start of each level to unlock new weapons to use in subsequent dungeons. The enemies that you defeat will allow you to gain experience points for your character. At the start of each level, you can use the experience points you’ve collected to improve your character’s attributes, boosting its strength, endurance, and agility.
Levels are randomly generated, so you’ll always need to be on high alert in order to survive. You can play through Crypt of the Serpent King Remastered 4K in one of three difficulty settings: Casual, Normal, and Hardcore. For Casual, enemies are weaker, you get a ton of gold and experience points, and there is no health cap. Normal offers the standard gameplay experience with strong enemies and regular drops for gold and experience points. Hardcore is unlocked once you complete the game in Normal, and it will have extremely tough enemies, and there will be no food to heal your wounds.
Along with being able to balance the volume for music and sound effects, you can customize your experience with Crypt of the Serpent King Remastered 4K on PlayStation 5 by adjusting the brightness setting, changing the field of view between the default option and a narrow or wide setting, as well as enable or disable the crosshair, which makes it easier to aim your attacks. You can also invert the Y-axis and change the sensitivity for the X-axis and the Y-axis, as well as activate or deactivate controller vibration.
The game includes a new trophy list with a Platinum trophy. The list includes 11 Gold trophies, and unlike the PlayStation 4 version of the game, which required that you beat the game three times – because the difficulty trophies didn’t stack – for Crypt of the Serpent King Remastered 4K, you only need to beat the game once. Trophies will pop when you open your first chest, collect your first key, defeat your first goblin, unlock the sword, collect all keys, and beat the boss for each of the seven levels that the game has to offer.

Crypt of the Serpent King Remastered 4K brings us a revamped version of the dungeon crawler that was released on PlayStation 4 back in 2018. While the graphics have been improved – and the game now includes an easier trophy list – the gameplay loop is a bit tedious since the gameplay loop of finding all keys as you defeat enemies so that you can open the door to the boss is too monotonous and repetitive. Crypt of the Serpent King Remastered 4K is out on PlayStation 5 at a budget price of only $2.99.
