I’ve always liked Crysis games for being the equivalent of junk food video games – big, strong, silly, forgettable, and a lot of fun right now. If you missed this particular pleasure the first time (the original Crysis is 14 years old) or if you liked last year's Crysis Remastered and can't wait any longer, you'll be glad to know that the rest of the games in the trilogy it's almost here.
Crysis 2 Remastered and Crysis 3 Remastered will arrive on October 15, Crytek announced today, and will be available both individually and in a complete trilogy package with the first game. Updated versions will include 4K support and uncovered photo frames on PC, with improved textures, lighting and other visual enhancements, as well as "substantial performance gains" that hopefully mean the millennial question of "Can you run Crysis?" it will not be as urgent a concern as before.
Unfortunately, there is still no indication of Crysis Warhead, the standalone expansion to the first Crysis which, for my money, was a better and more interesting experience. It was not included with Crysis Remastered and the announcement of the release date of the trilogy also makes no mention of it. My hope is that Crytek will keep it for a launch day surprise. (I also hope they throw one quick save function).
As with the first remaster, the Crysis Remastered Trilogy will be an exclusive Epic Games Store at launch. Finally, it will arrive on Steam: Crysis Remastered, which was released in Epic Store on September 18, 2020, is now listed there as "soon."
