Crysis Remastered Trilogy will hit Steam shelves next month, more than a year after it first launched via the Epic Games Store. This pack does what you’d expect: takes three of Crytek’s sci-fi shooters and exploits them with state-of-the-art rendering tricks.
The Crysis Remastered Trilogy will cost £45 / €50 / $50 at launch On steam. It will be 40% off launch week for all, down to $30/€30 or 55% off for those who already own Crysis 1 Remastered on Steam. (A remake of the first game was released last September, a year after its initial release on the Epic Games Store.)
I have max hearts for the original Crysis, but I already overwhelmed by the remake of the original. It essentially raised the price, layered on top of little extra graphical bells and whistles, failed to fix long-standing bugs, and replaced Crysis 1’s nanosuit functionality with a system from inferior sequels. (although there is an option to revert changes).
James did a more technical comparison of the sequel when it was released and got a better impression of the graphics upgrade and found the price to be more reasonable as a package.
“It’s still a very, very big request to anyone who has owned the original before, even if the actual remakes of Crysis 2 and 3 are all positive,” James wrote. “But if this is your first time using a nanosuit and you have the hardware to at least handle ray tracing, it makes sense to go straight to the Remastered Trilogy. Sorry Graham.”
Don’t worry, James. The Crysis Remastered Trilogy will launch on Steam on November 17th. It will likely be the last Crysis for a while, as Crysis 4 has been announced but the sound is years away.
