It was recently confirmed that Crysis Remastered is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch this year. It will include the campaign of the first game with improved graphics. However, following a somewhat confusing announcement that led fans to speculate that Crysis Warhead and even the Crysis 2 or Crysis 3 campaigns will also be included, Crytek has now made it clear that it will not be included.
“Crysis Remastered is just the original game. It won’t include Warhead or any of the other games from the series,” a Crytek representative told the Inverse website. The original press release released on April 16 could lead to the error: Crysis Remastered will focus on single-player campaigns from the original game.”
The remastered version is being handled by Saber Interactive, makers of improved versions of multiple games, creators of World War Z, and makers of the adaptation of Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC. Its CEO Tim Willits posted an already deleted tweet in which he spoke of Crysis “remasters”.
Followers of the Crytek saga wanted to see Crysis Warhead included in the package because, unlike the original title and its sequels, it was never released for consoles. Crysis Warhead was starring Psycho, instead of the Nomad who is in the first game, and we had the events of the first game from a different point of view and with even more direct action.
Crysis Remastered will also not include a multiplayer. The remastered version, planned for sometime in 2020, will include high-resolution textures, improvements in certain art elements, more modern anti-aliasing techniques, greater depth of field, improved lighting, motion blur, and additional particle effects.
