Crysis Remastered Trilogy is launching on October 15th exclusive to the Epic Games Store

Written by Stuart Thomas on Fri, Sep 3, 2021 11:51 AM

Crytek have finally announced the official release date for the upcoming remastered trilogy. After a successful remastering of the original Crysis, the next two sequels are also getting the facelift treatment, albeit a little less drastic compared to the original game’s improvements, but still very much appreciated.

The Crysis Remastered Trilogy, which includes the original Crysis Remastered along with Crysis 2 Remastered and Crysis 3 Remastered, is officially launching on October 15th. You can buy them all separately or in a bundle, but they will be a timed exclusive to the Epic Games Store.

We’re not sure when the Crysis Remastered Trilogy will launch on Steam, but we know it will eventually. The first Crysis Remastered is already up on Steam, though with a release date of “coming soon”. It’s likely that all 3 will come to Steam at the same time, and judging by previous Epic Store timed exclusives, you’ll likely have to wait up to 12 months.

What do you think? Are you excited for the Crysis Remastered Trilogy? Which Crysis game are you most excited to play with remastered graphics? WHich is your favorite Crysis game overall? Let us know!

Which Crysis game are you most excited to play with remastered graphics?

Will you be getting them on the EGS? Or wait for Steam?

See this kind of stuff gets on my nerves. They know they can't really compete with Steam on an even playfield so they do this exclusive crap.

Crysis 2 and 3 look exactly the same as the originals! What is remastered? Also, why remaster 2 and 3? They look amazing even by today's standards and have all the modern graphical features (minus the RTX gimmick)!

The original Crysis with mods (Enhanced Edition) looks better and runs better from what I've seen. Here's a video showing the differences: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y93ypkVZVpg

Only runs better until you realize the official remaster has DLSS support... Those framerates are unplayable in both cases anyway (at least at 4K used in the video), so DLSS is where it gets more interesting. And I have a feeling you'd get waaaay better fps without RT as well (no idea if the video used RT or not).

Why wait for steam, I am never going to understand that, will the game have different features? Believe me, I have bought games from both platforms and the game experience is just the same, of course is your choice although does not make too much sense if you really want to play a game.

I have my reasons and they're pretty simple:


I have not spent a penny on EGS, I don't like the idea of 40% of my money after dev cut going to fund Tencent (and all the associated crimes against humanity they facilitate over in china), I don't want to support this "exclusivity" nonsense on PC (some may call Steam a "monopoly", but IMO the games should be available ideally everywhere, not locked down to any specific storefront that wants artificial exclusivity deals on PC), EGS also STILL does not have reviews or community features that would tell me what's good/bad about the current state of the product I'm interested in, etc.


Take HITMAN 3 as an example: I have my whole Hitman library (from Codename 47 to HITMAN 2 reboot) on Steam - why would I buy on EGS when I can wait and have my game seamlessly integrate with my current reboots - something that didn't even work (despite promises) when Hitman 3 launched on EGS.


On top of everything - I wait a year, meaning there will be patches, DLC, etc - and sales! I get a better product for less money by waiting a bit.


FOMO can go get screwed, doesn't work on me at the ripe old age of 29 🤣


I have over 100 free games on EGS by now - yeah, they're fine, can't say there's anything wrong with them (aside from anything that would have had multi-title or Steam integration)... But when it comes time to spend my money - the rules change and I will pay for the version I WANT, not the first version I'm thrown. There are literally tens of thousands of games to pick from to play on PC, from retro to modern, from native PC games to emulated ones, spanning decades - they're all competing for my attention, so I don't need to just buy whatever comes out, I can wait and not feel it, I'm not a beggar when it comes to games 👍

There's a ton of other reasons you didn't touch on either, but there's nothing wrong with waiting either. The games will hopefully be less buggy when they eventually come to Steam (unlike Borderlands 3 and Saints Row 3) and a ton of people also have a large enough of a backlog to play through patiently while waiting if it's worth it.


Also, another massive reason is the Steam Deck. I've seen a ton of people piling up games to play when that launches. EGS? They're still trying to figure out how to do a shopping cart.

100% on the Steam Deck (AKA: Gabe Gear) for me as well! I mentioned this on the (shameless plug incoming!) GD DISCORD server, but I bought a 1TB 2230 M.2 NVMe drive in prep for when mine arrives. Dual-boot possibility was confirmed by the Valve engineer, by the way, so I guess you could do EGS and other stores pretty easily anyway - and that is certainly what I'm gonna try and do, especially for GOG games if I can't get them working on Linux. I've been into modded Diablo 2 as of late and the idea of having it on a hand-held has been in my head since I've tried the PSX version of Diablo running on my PSP back in '07 😍

You should be able to play GOG games on linux with other clients. There's a few clients for GOG on linux though. There's minigalaxy and GameHub which has support for GOG, HumbleBundle, Steam and Itch.

Thanks, I'll keep these in mind! 👍


Though I'd still want Windows dual-boot, since I'm familiar with that and it'll probably make modding and all sorts of other stuff a lot easier natively, than trying to figure out linux.

Steam has better prices, Steam Sales, and it's easier to buy from it where I am.
