Crysis is a classic, especially for PC gamers. While the title is most famous for its high-end graphical effects, the game also offers highly satisfying gameplay and large open maps which were unlike most shooters of that era. Players had options with Crysis, be it to stealth through areas using the Nanosuit’s powers or to slaughter the enemy with strength and armour enhancing abilities. 

In 2008, Crysis received a standalone expansion called Crysis Warhead, placing players in the shoes of Psycho, a squyad-mate of Crysis’ protagonist, Nomad, who has an independent mission which runs concurrently with Crysis’ campaign. The game features enhanced gameplay, and a multiplayer mode called Crysis Wars. Crysis and Crysis Warhead eventually released in a single package called Crysis Maximum Edition.    

When Crytek revealed Crysis Remastered, the studio discussed the game’s “single-player campaigns” suggesting that their upcoming remaster would include the campaigns of both Crysis and Crysis Warhead. Crysis only contained one campaign, making the mention of “Campaigns” a clear reference to Crysis Warhead. 

Below is a portion of Crytek’s press release for Crysis Warhead. 


   Crysis Remastered will focus on the original game’s single-player campaigns and is slated to contain high-quality textures and improved art assets, an HD texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, and parallax occlusion mapping, particle effects will also be added where applicable. Further additions such as volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections provide the game with a major visual upgrade.
