Crysis remastered trilogy
October 15, 2021 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PS5, Xbox Series

Crysis was prized for its advanced graphics. But sales were low. It was said that the first part at one time debuted only on PC, and the second and third worked unstable on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Crytek, the company responsible for the series, experienced global financial difficulties in mid-2010. It survived thanks to a deal with Amazon – the Internet giant bought a license for the CryEngine engine. Following this, Crytek rallied and in alliance with Saber Interactive (Quake Champions, World War Z) issued Crysis Remastered.

The remaster of the original was followed by graphically improved versions of the sequel and triquel. They are no longer suitable for impressing friends with the level of detail, but they quite satisfy the nostalgic thirst.

Ubisoft has entrusted it to its Indian divisions. The choice of the engine has become very controversial – this is Anvil, sharpened for open world projects. In The Sands of Time, like in the original 2003, there is no open world. Plus, Anvil does not get along well with the central gameplay feature of the game – rewinding time.

Gothic

Piranha Bytes, famous for its role-playing series Gothic, is now forging Elex 2. The German studio, together with the Gothic brand, belongs to THQ Nordic. The publisher rightly judged: there is no need for the brand to stand idle while Piranha Bytes comes up with new adventures for Jax.

Although the game and the film have a lot in common, the main character is different – it is Detective Ray McCoy, chasing replicants.

Nightdive will raise the resolution of the storylines in Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition, dust off the hero models, and polish the animations. In parallel, the team, by the way, is working on a remake of System Shock, System Shock 2: Enhanced Edition, SiN: Reloaded and PowerSlave: Exhumed.
