Crysis Remastered Trilogy is coming to consoles and PC this fall! You’ll visit the dangerous North Korean islands, save humanity from a deadly virus in New York City and uncover the truth about C.E.L.L.


Crytek today announced that the Crysis Remastered Trilogy will launch for consoles and PC this fall. The Crysis Remastered Trilogy features the single-player remasters of Crysis, Crysis 2, and Crysis 3, optimized in partnership with Saber Interactive for today's consoles and PC hardware. The three-game bundle will be available on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and for PC, with the game playing even smoother on next gen PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Crysis Remastered is available for these platforms now, and the remasters of Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 will also be made available separately.

How the fuck do you forget about Crysis Warhead? Last time I was this pissed off was when WB ignored Arkham Origins in their remastered collection.

Also not preparing proper PS5/XSX releases hints at low effort remasters.
Everyone forgot about crysis warhead....

I wish they didn’t considering they really improved the original Cry Engine and should’ve built the remasters on that one.
yeah I remember they really fixed the engine in warhead. But the game itself was forgettable at best

Given Saber Interactive allegedly managed to implement Halk Hogan's textures into The Witcher 3, would be reasonable to expect MaLDo's work featured in this?

Missing Warhead is deeply frustrating.

I genuinely got confused about some levels from Warhead thinking they were in vanilla Crysis and then was disappointed when they weren't.

I really hope these "remasters" do enough to get the series started back up and I REALLY hope they go back to the Crysis 1 design philosophy. They tried to CoD up Crysis after the success of Modern Warfare and the series never quite recovered.

Crysis was unique because it was different than the bog-standard shooters of it's release era. I still think Crysis 1/Warhead on Delta difficulty is one of the best shooters ever made. You can't hear what the A.I. is doing as they speak Korean and you are forced to manage your nano-suit powers in smart ways to be effective. You can't just slap on optic-camo or shield and run through the level or just be rambo, you have to think about what you are doing and it's a very rewarding game to play if you are willing to challenge yourself.

Problem with Crysis 1's remaster is that people just wanted a power trip so they play it on normal/easy, slap on armor/camo mode and just blaze through the game, which under those circumstances, is just kind of boring and it's visual splendor isn't as impressive today as it was back in '07 so when not challenged or amazed by the visuals, it feels underwhelming. If you challenge yourself, you'd see the game has a lot to offer and rewards creativity and skill/patience in big ways if you are willing to bump that difficulty up.

It's a shame that Crysis just fell into the bog-standard CoD clone rut common with a lot of shooters chasing that money in those days and then having to make design concessions to fit it on the consoles of the time for Crysis sequels really hurt it too. Crysis and Far Cry battling head-to-head was awesome and once Crysis stopped being competition for Far Cry, they kind of stop innovating with Far Cry.

Crytek are creatively and financially bankrupt. I'd like to replay but I don't think they deserve my money.

After that miserable abortion they released recently on consoles, they can stick it where the sun doesn't shine.

lol so they sell you a half baked remaster for full price, and a couple months later they sell you a full trilogy for five bucks more, check.

A lot of fans consider Warhead the best entry in the series. Its leaner than Crysis 1 and works its strenghts more than the original. Thinking Crysis 2 is the best is certainly not a thing shared by many people

Crysis 1 remaster was like $20 at launch and has been on sale cheaper than that since.

Using the worst version of the original Crysis, for a comparison of this remaster, is cheating.
Also I'd argue elements of that console release of Crysis 1 still look better.

In that opening shot the way the mountain is lit/ the textures and trees on the ps3/360 version look to my eye better. Those elements at least mask the low polygon count of the mountain.

And I think just in general, the new version of Crysis 1 lacking any form of colour filter like the PC and console versions had sort of robs it of that "Crysis" aesthetic.
