Crytek has announced that Crysis Remastered Trilogy — which obviously means Crysis, Crysis 2, and Crysis 3 — is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (with “even smoother” play on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S) in fall 2021. Crysis Remastered already released last year, with a surprisingly solid Switch port, but now the other two games are getting the remaster treatment. Crytek is again working in partnership with Saber Interactive for these titles. Pricing and how exactly these games will be released has not been elaborated upon, but “the remasters of Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 will also be made available separately.”

“We’re excited to announce that these iconic Crysis games are returning in one bundle, remastered for a new generation of hardware,” said Steffen Halbig, project lead, speaking on Crysis Remastered Trilogy. “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.”

As Apex Legends reiterated, porting games — especially ones with high technical requirements — is really complicated, but Crysis Remastered worked out well on Switch, all things considered. We’ll see this fall if Crysis Remastered Trilogy is up to snuff on Nintendo Switch and its other platforms.

For those who need a refresher, here are what the other two games in the trilogy entail:

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.
