Crysis Remastered Includes Only The First Game, Confirms Crytek
Crytek has clarified that the upcoming Crysis Remastered will feature only the original game's campaign.
Crytek, the developer of the science fiction Crysis series, has confirmed to Inverse.com that the upcoming Crysis Remastered title is going to include only the campaign from the first title.
After some misleading terminology referring to “remasters,” as in more than one remaster, used in a now-deleted tweet from Saber Interactive’s Tim Willits, fans were left confused by what was going to be included. This typo spawned numerous theories that the game would consist of the standalone expansion Warhead, and possibly even Crysis 2 and Crysis 3, and this clarification has quenched those hopes and dreams for the time being. With that said, though, it wouldn’t surprise me if we see the sequels get remasters of their own and Warhead release as a piece of DLC for Crysis Remastered.
The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind for fans of this dormant series. On April 13, the Crysis twitter suddenly tweeted out a cryptic message after having been silent for four years. This was followed the next day with another tweet, this time slightly less ambiguous, containing a line from the original game. Following these messages, fans decided to dig a bit deeper, eventually leading to Twitter user @lashman discovering not only that a remaster for 2007’s title was coming, but also the platforms that it would appear on. Lashman ended up beating Crytek to the punch with their reveal by a mere few hours as the official announcement and teaser were released later that same day.
The original Crysis became the benchmark on how powerful your new gaming rig was. The first question you would get asked was always, “But can it run Crysis?” Even now, this term is used as a joke, but back in 2007, when the game first released, it was a beacon of just how interactive and visually stunning a game could look. Saying that your machine could run it on high settings was a badge of pride. I can’t wait to see new generations of gaming computers built for the sole purpose of being able to play this remaster on max settings.
Crysis Remastered will be shooting up the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch this summer with high-resolution and enhanced textures, ray-tracing support, new light setting, and other improved visual features.
