There is no debate that the Crysis franchise is a hella good looking set of games. Now though it’s set to look even better as the Crysis Remastered Trilogy arrives on Xbox, Switch and PlayStation.
Available to download right now, Crysis Remastered Trilogy brings together the three game that you would expect – Crysis, Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 – all in fully optimised, remastered form. It’s the optimisation and enhancements which will be of most interest to Xbox and PlayStation players as the games can be played smoother than ever before. You see, the originals dropped in at an average of 720p and up to 30fps. Not bad in itself but here and now in 2021 that is being moved out to between 1080p and 4K at 60fps on Xbox Series X and PS5.
Dynamic Resolution is also thrown in, allowing for excellent performance on current systems, whilst the Trilogy will now also include improved lighting, visually enhanced characters, weapons and environments, alongside some HD textures for good measure.
The original Crysis Remastered has been available for a while, but now Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 join it, to provide a trio of games which could well be seen as the finest remastering of a trilogy yet. And if you would prefer to pick up any one of the games, they are available individually at £24.99 each too.
“We’re delighted to bring fans of the Crysis franchise, Crysis Remastered Trilogy, which will accompany the separate release of the remasters of Crysis 2 and Crysis 3.” said Steffen Halbig, Project Lead. “Players can look forward to reliving the adventure with stunning graphics, smooth frame rates, and high-quality textures on whichever platform they choose, with lightning-fast 60 FPS gameplay available on next-gen consoles, alongside a host of other graphical optimizations. We’d encourage all players to check out the comparision trailers to see the differences themselves“.
- Crysis Remastered Description: What begins as a simple rescue mission becomes the battleground of a new war as alien invaders swarm over a chain of North Korean islands. Playing as super-soldier Prophet, you are armed 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 Description: 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 fightback. Equipped with the upgraded Nanosuit 2.0, customize your suit and weapons in real-time and unlock powerful new abilities in the battle for humanity’s survival.
- Crysis 3 Remastered Description: Returning to the fight as super-soldier Prophet, the search for the alien Alpha Ceph continues, but now you must also expose the truth behind the C.E.L.L. corporation, which has turned New York City into a sprawling urban rainforest sheltered by a giant nanodome. Fight through seven distinct districts and decimate your opponents in a blaze of brute force using the Nanosuit’s superior technology, or use stealth to achieve your goals and become humanity’s silent savior. Equipped with your powerful and deadly new Predator Bow, there’s no wrong way to save the world.
