The Crysis games are some of the most iconic first-person shooters out there, with each one not just pushing the graphics to their limits at the time, but also the gameplay too. Now Crytek has released a remastered version of all 3 original Crysis games, and have also put out a new video showcasing the significant visual improvements for the Remastered versions.

The Crysis Remastered Trilogy includes the original Crysis Remastered from last year, along with Crysis 2 Remastered and Crysis 3 Remastered. Although the first game got the biggest facelift, each sequel has also gotten some sparkly love with the addition of ray tracing and many more graphical enhancements. Check them out below:

I have to say that the video above really showcases how great Crysis 3 looked when it first came out, as honestly it still holds up now. Obviously the remastered version still looks better, and will be the definitive version to play on modern hardware. But Crysis 2 Remastered looks positively beautified with crisp textures and reflections.

What do you think? Will you be picking up the Crysis Remastered Trilogy? How do you feel about the graphical improvements in the video above? Which Crysis game is your favorite of the series? Let us know!

I know there are improvements to lighting in the Remastered along with other effects but damn that original game looks good.

Crysis 2007 was a phenomenon of its time a game that was innovative technologically and visually that the highest end hardware struggled ...not sure why someone thought it needed a remake... the studio keeps chasing its former glory.

I suppose you are right but anyone who can't afford to run the remaster can just go and play the origina with all the effects turned up. I am sure they will still have a good time. I never played the original trilogy but I am thinking of giving it a shot now.

The original Crysis trilogy is good overall. Kind of underrated, in my opinion.


As for this Remastered trilogy. I am mostly lukewarm at the moment. The Denuvo thing and the lack of a Crysis Warhead Remastered bug me.


If you want to give the Crysis series a go, I advice considering the originals, and have a plythrough of Warhead as well.

@upsurge None of the trilogies stories were anything remarkable few cool set pieces and environments. Crysis 2/3 were console launches so they did nothing much to shock anyone visually. I tried to play through the series got too bored playing crysis 2.

The crysis 1 enhancement is indeed a lot better (also a lot better than the earlier seen screenshots). The 2 seems more minor changes but still significant (reminds me of games where switching on ambient occlusion would give a very notable difference. Just playing the video I couldn't really see a difference in the 3 remaster, possibly because the movements aren't synced. Small details aren't visible during movement anyway.

Cryengine never ceases to amaze me. Even the original Crysis 3 is stunning.

Crysis 2 is my favourite because I couldn't run Crysis 3 at the time. XD

And just as it was 14 years ago its still single core dependant so get cpu bound with most high end gpus.

Absolutely hated that... Crysis 1 can look spectacular and ran very well at 5K ultra back when I tried it on a 2080Ti, but I just couldn't get past 50fps in some areas whether it's 5K or 1080p. The CPU not being utilized properly is always such a bummer...

im not sure about crysis 2, but crysis 3 actually required a lot of cpu threads to run smoothly, heck in certain areas it can utilize even 10c/20thread cpus for extra smoothness. crysis 1 however... yeah single core thread goes brrr. and what is the most frustrating thing with crysis 1 remastered is that they didnt fix it, if im not mistaken, its even more intensive on single thread compared to original, like bruh...
