For weeks, there has been an ongoing rumor that Crytek will release a remastered version of Crysis 2. Finally, it has been confirmed. Crysis has announced that remasters of the three Crysis games will be bundled together as the Crysis Remastered Trilogy. This game will then be released as a standalone purchase this coming Fall.
Crytek shared that the remastered games of Crysis are currently being enhanced and optimized by Saber Interactive. The game will be released for PlayStation, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and gaming PC. And according to Crysis, all the three Crysis games will play even smoother on next-gen consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
The first game in the trilogy was already remastered before and released in 2020 after some delay. The delay was caused by the mixed reactions of the fans after seeing leaked game footage. It is safe to say that Crysis will learn from their initial mistakes with the first remastered game and will not do the same to the newly remastered versions.
Aside from some visual improvements, Crysis Remastered included high-quality textures up to 8K, temporal anti-aliasing, and HDR support. It also features Screen Space Directional Occlusion (SSDO), Global Illumination (SVOGI), and Screen Space Reflections and Shadows (SSR & SSS). It also includes new light settings, motion blur, parallax occlusion mapping, state-of-the-art depth fields, and new, updated particle effects. When it comes to PC, Xbox One X, and PS4 Pro, Crysis Remastered includes ray tracing with Nvidia RTX GPUs.
Crysis is a first-person shooter video game series that revolves around a group of military men who wear nano suits. These nano suits are technologically advanced suits or armors that give wearers enhanced physical strength, defense, speed, and even cloaking abilities. The game’s protagonists fight against the hostile armed mercenaries from North Korea and a rare technologically advanced alien called Ceph. These aliens have arrived on Earth millions of years ago and have recently awakened, intending to take over the planet.
