Crysis Remastered Trilogy coming to consoles and PC this fall

Today Crytek announced a remastered launch of its hit shooter series Crysis with the Crysis Remastered Trilogy. While no release date was revealed, Crytek stated that the trilogy will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch in the fall. The Xbox and PlayStations versions are confirmed to be backward compatible with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S which will have improved performance.

Crysis Remastered Trilogy - Teaser Trailer

Crysis is a first-person shooter series from the German developer Crytek. The series follows Prophet, the franchise’s super-soldier protagonist, equipped with a powerful Nanosuit that grants him enhanced strength, speed, durability, and other abilities.

The games were highly praised when they first launched thanks to the sandbox gameplay, fun suit powers, graphics, and physics. Their praise was often held back due to the high hardware requirements of the titles, birthing the “But can it run Crysis?” meme.

This series of remasters seeks to rectify that common criticism thanks to current-gen hardware. Those with the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S can expect even smoother gameplay than the previous generation of consoles.

While the games can be purchased in one trilogy pack they can also be purchased individually, as Crysis Remastered is already available for these platforms. Crytek and its partners for these optimized ports at Saber Interactive, seek to give old fans of the series a definitive way to revisit the series as well as introduce new players to a classic series.

For those unfamiliar with Crysis, Crytek may be more recognizable for games such as The Climb, the original Far CryRyse: Son of Rome, and Hunt: Showdown.

The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered: No Return tips and tricks for beginners
Tommy in The Last of Us 2 Remastered

The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered's campaign mostly just features visual upgrades over the PlayStation 4 original, but its new No Return mode provides players with a roguelike experience within the same world. This tense and challenging experience requires equal parts patience, strategy, and quick reflexes if you want to survive till the very end. In this guide, we'll share some things you'll want to keep in mind while tackling No Return.
Pick the right character for you
No Return features various characters from The Last of Us Part 2, each sporting unique initial loadouts, upgrade paths, and traits that can make a massive difference in your run. Picking one that suits the way you like to approach combat is extremely important, as certain characters will excel at some encounter types more than others.

For instance, Abby gets instant access to the Melee Upgrade Recipe and heals after killing an enemy with a melee attack, whereas Ellie gains extra supplements and gets immediate access to the Molotov Recipe for burning foes alive. Later, you can even unlock Yara, who will always bring along Lev as a sidekick to help you kill enemies in every encounter, though she sacrifices any other particularly unique extras as a result. As you can see, there's a character for every player, and a bit of trial and error should reveal which one works best for you.

Is Lords of the Fallen cross-platform?

If there's one thing you can count on in nearly any Soulslike game, it's that you're going to face some hefty challenges along your journey. That rings as true as ever in Lords of the Fallen, which tasks you with exploring treacherous locales and facing off against horrifying and deadly creatures around every corner. As such, you may find yourself wanting to bring a friend along for some cooperative play, and you can do exactly that by simply inviting them to your world, where they can stay for as long as they'd like. However, if you're wondering what options you have available if your friend is playing on another platform, we'll tell you whether Lords of the Fallen has crossplay below.
Is Lords of the Fallen cross-platform?

The quick and easy answer to whether Lords of the Fallen has crossplay is yes, it features crossplay. However, this only works between PC and each console individually, meaning that PS5 and Xbox players can't connect with one another. For those on either platform looking to connect with PC players, though, you can freely invite someone for co-op (or invade them for PVP) with no issues whatsoever.
