While there’s plenty I’m excited for from the rest of the year’s offerings (Life is Strange and Deathloop being two particular games of note), I’m particularly excited about the Crysis Remastered Trilogy as well. The Crysis series is one I’ve come to cherish for everything it does right, from its open-ended level design, sci-fi world, and questions of how technology defines a person. In fact, I gave the full series a replay earlier this year and fell in love with it all again. And pretty soon, it seems it’ll be that time again. The Crysis Remastered Trilogy will officially release on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch consoles on October 15, with pre-orders for PlayStation and Xbox now live (links below).
Crysis Remastered Trilogy packages all three mainline Crysis games (not including Warhead) into one neat, wonderful package. Experience the stories of Nomad, Alcatraz, and Prophet as you work to stop the alien race known as the Ceph from destroying human life as we known it. Using the powers of the series’ iconic nanosuit, you’ll run, jump, and cloak your way to discovering this world’s secrets and enemies. And all of this, in heavily refined glory. For those on next-gen consoles as well, you’ll get to take full effect of the console’s titan-level hardware. This includes HD textures, improved lighting, visual enhancements, and dynamic resolution between 1080p and 4K, all at a buttery smooth 60 FPS.
And I know some of you have been harboring this concern, so I’m happy to announce this too: Crysis 2 Remastered and Crysis 3 Remastered will release with separate editions as well, meaning you can purchase them without paying for Crysis Remastered. With the original title already available for a good while now, it’s nice to see that Crytek aren’t forcing you to pay for the first installment twice in a row.
Again, the Crysis Remastered Trilogy will release on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on October 15. You can find the pre-order links on the respective platform listed.
