Rumored for a while now, the remasters of the Crysis games are indeed real. Not only that, but all 3 are bundled together and on the way this Fall.
Can it run Crysis now?
Yeah, I know. But I like that joke. Anyway, Crysis might not have a new game on the horizon, but the series is definitely back in a pretty big way. That’s thanks to Sabre Interactive, who’ve partnered with Crytek for a set of remasters.
All three of the games in the set are going to be bundled together, though you’ll be able to get parts 2 and 3 separately as well. You might remember that the first Crysis already had a Remaster, so you probably don’t want to double up on that. Nice to have options.
Here’s what the titles will look like in action:
- A simple rescue mission turns into an all-out war as alien invaders swarm over a chain of islands in the Pacific. Playing as super-soldier Prophet, Crysis arms you with a powerful Nanosuit equipped with speed, strength, armor, and cloaking abilities. Use a vast arsenal of modular weaponry and adapt your tactics and gear to dominate enemies in an enormous sandbox world.
Crysis 2 Remastered:
- Aliens have returned to a world ravaged by climate disasters. As the invaders lay waste to New York and begin an assault that threatens the total annihilation of humankind, only you have the technology to lead the fight back. Equipped with the upgraded Nanosuit 2.0, customize your armor and weapons in real-time and unlock powerful abilities in the battle for humanity’s survival.
Crysis 3 Remastered:
- New York City has been transformed into a sprawling urban rainforest sheltered by a giant nanodome. Equipped with the deadly Predator Bow, Prophet must fight through seven distinct districts against human and alien forces, using the Nanosuit’s superior technology to deploy brute force or stealth to achieve his goals. There’s no wrong way to save the world.
There’s no release date as of yet for this one, though we do know that the set will be out there this fall. Expect to see it arrive for the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. And yes, playing the game on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will net you improved performance.
