Crytek and Saber Interactive have revealed how much progress has been made between PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 5 for Crysis Remastered Trilogy (and it could have been even bigger).
The comparison is somewhat inexplicable, as the PlayStation 5 is not the best choice for it. Previously, we wrote regarding Sony’s newest console that Crysis Remastered Trilogy’s resolution will not be native 4K on it (due to not making proper next-gen versions for the three games), resulting in a smaller resolution than the Xbox Series X, a measly 1440p, with a 60 FPS frame rate. (On the Nintendo Switch, it will be a smaller resolution and 30 frames per second.) Fortunately, at the time of writing, we also got the Xbox 360 vs. Xbox Series X comparison, too.
Here are the story overviews for the three games: “Crysis Remastered: A simple rescue mission turns into an all-out war as alien invaders swarm over a chain of North Korean islands. Playing as super-soldier Nomad, you are armed with a powerful Nanosuit equipped with Speed, Strength, Armor, and Cloaking abilities. Use a vast arsenal of modular weaponry and adapt your tactics and gear to dominate enemies in an enormous sandbox world.
Crysis 2 Remastered: Aliens have returned to a world ravaged by climate disasters. As the invaders lay waste to New York and begin an assault that threatens the total annihilation of humankind, only you have the technology to lead the fightback. Equipped with the upgraded Nanosuit 2.0, customize your suit and weapons in real-time and unlock powerful abilities in the battle for humanity’s survival. Crysis 3 Remastered: New York City has been transformed into a sprawling urban rainforest sheltered by a giant nanodome. Prophet must fight through seven distinct districts against human and alien forces, using the Nanosuit’s superior technology to deploy brute force or opting for stealth to achieve his goals. Equipped with a deadly Predator Bow, there’s no wrong way to save the world.”
“We’re excited to announce that these iconic Crysis games are returning in one bundle, remastered for a new generation of hardware. Each game is enhanced to look and play beautifully on today’s platforms, delivering the finest Crysis experience for both newcomers to our classic franchise or players wishing to relive the adventure,” said Steffen Halbig, the project lead. Since then, he has been proven wrong regarding the “remastered for a new generation of hardware” comment.
Crysis Remastered Trilogy will launch this autumn on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The games can be purchased separately, too. The pack doesn’t include the Crytek Budapest-developed Crysis Warhead.
