In Crysis Remastered, what begins as a simple rescue mission becomes the battleground of a new war against alien invaders. Armed with a powerful Nanosuit, players can become invisible to stalk enemy patrols, or boost their strength to lay waste to vehicles. The Nanosuit’s speed, strength, armor, and cloaking allow creative solutions for every kind of fight, while a huge arsenal of modular weaponry provides unprecedented control over your play style. Adapt your tactics and gear to dominate your enemies in this enormous sandbox world.
The original Crysis looked amazing for it's time, so we're eagerly waiting to see how the Remastered version looks and plays.
