The Crysis series has consistently delivered some of the most beautiful and impressive first-person shooters available on any platform, and now, Crytek is getting ready to bring remastered versions of the main three entries in the franchise to modern platforms with support for resolutions up to 4K, up to 60 FPS, and much more with the release of the Crysis Remastered Trilogy.
The Crysis Remastered Trilogy includes the single-player stories of Crysis 1, Crysis 2, and Crysis 3. For those unfamiliar, Crysis tells the story of special forces soldiers who are outfitted with nanosuits that offer such abilities as greater strength, enhanced speed, improved defense to withstand bullets, and a cloaking skill that makes you near-invisible. While players can choose to purchase each game separately if they already own Crysis Remastered, the Crysis Remastered Trilogy collection will give them all three games for the price of two.
Despite all three games running natively on PS4 and Xbox One instead of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, the next-gen consoles’ versions will be optimized via backwards compatibility to “play smoother and better than ever before.” For example, the Crysis Remastered Trilogy will feature resolutions up to 4K and up to 60 FPS thanks to Dynamic Resolution.
On PC, players will be able to lock their frame rate to whatever they choose and, if their rig can support it, select Max Settings to see the most advanced tech Crytek has to offer on display.
The original Crysis Remastered was released in 2020 and the PC version included ray tracing alongside “high-quality textures up to 8K, HDR support, temporal anti-aliasing, Screen Space Directional Occlusion (SSDO), Global Illumination (SVOGI), state-of-the-art depth fields, new
light settings, motion blur, parallax occlusion mapping, Screen Space Reflections and Shadows (SSR & SSS) as well as new and updated particle effects and more.”
All platforms will be able to enjoy these classic titles with updated lighting, better-looking characters, weapons, and environments, and high-definition textures to make the world feel more real.
Crysis was first released back in 2007 and pushed tech forward by running at up to 720p and up to 30 FPS. Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 followed in 2011 and 2013, respectively, and continued the trend of high quality graphics perfectly matched with exciting gameplay set by the first.
