The gold-standard classic shooter Crysis is getting a hefty remaster sometime soon. It will release on all modern platforms. The news originally came from a leak Gematsu picked up and was expanded on with an official press release from Crytek a short while later.
This comes after the official Crysis Twitter account came to life just a few days ago. Crysis Remastered brings back the sandbox gameplay of the original and also focuses on the game's single-player campaign.
Aliens have invaded a chain of North Korean islands, and it's up to you to wipe them out. How you do this is up to you, whether you choose your Nanosuit's stealth for surprise attacks or go full power and devastate your enemies. Whatever you do, you'll do it with all the flash modern graphics can provide.
Crytek says the remaster will have high-quality HD textures, temporal anti-aliasing, depth fields, new light settings, and a whole range of other improvements.

It's quite the undertaking, and Saber Interactive — of Switcher 3 fame — is helping in the development process. The events of the game begin on August 7,which has led some to believe the game will drop on or around that date, though it has not been confirmed. You can check out the full release over on Gematsu.
Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Crysis Remastered news as it appears. Joshua Broadwell Contributor. Published Apr. More Crysis Content. Crysis Game Page. Crysis Articles.The nanosuit is the Crysis series ' most unique aspect. Both playable characters and all players in multiplayer are equipped with nanosuits.
Using the technology, they founded Hargreave-Rasch Biomedical and began developing the nanosuit and other anti-alien devices. Hargreave also chose to use the technology to artificially extend his life, while Rasch supposedly did not. Hargreave then sold or leased the nanosuits to the United States military, knowing that the aliens on the island were the ones from whom he stole the technology.
Hargreave was curious to see what would happen, and did not tell anyone of the aliens. A variety of nanosuit prototypes can be seen on display in Hargreave's office.

Two five-man teams on the island, Raptor Team and Eagle Team, are equipped with the suits. A number of US military soldiers comment on their admiration of the suits and their abilities, indicating that the suits are common knowledge at least among the military. At some point, the North Korean government acquired knowledge of the suits. General Ri-Shan KyongColonel Ji-Sung Leeand their elite guards are all equipped with nanosuits, but they are weaker and described by Nomad as "cheap knock-offs.
Nanosuits have the ability to interface with computer systems, relay information directly to superiors, and broadcast a video feed of the wearer's actions. The commander of each nanosuit team-- Prophet for Raptor Team and, presumably, Dane for Eagle Team--have the ability to remotely burn and disintegrate a nanosuit if the wearer is killed or the suit is compromised, to prevent it from falling into enemy hands.
American nanosuits are jet black silver in early promotional art and the original game's boxart while Korean nanosuits are camouflage-colored. This coloration carries over into multiplayer. Crytek took the idea for the nanosuits from an actual government program involving the usage of nanotechnology and systems integration to develop a powered exoskeleton for soldiers.
Maximum Armor is the default suit mode; suits in armor mode do not gain any additional coloration. The nanosuit diverts energy directly into protecting the wearer from harm. Suit energy is regained fastest in armor mode because the nanotechnology is not being used for any other purpose. Maximum Strength is a suit mode that gives the wearer increased strength and agility. Nanosuits in strength mode gain a glowing red color along the creases in the suit. Strength mode allows the user to fire guns with lowered recoil, jump several feet in the air, and punch and throw objects with more power.
Doing any of these actions depletes suit energy, which recharges slower than in armor mode. Maximum Speed is a suit mode that gives the wearer increased speed and reflexes. Nanosuits in speed mode gain a glowing white color along the creases in the suit. Speed mode allows the user to run extremely fast and do other actions like reload at much higher speeds, but quickly depletes suit energy, which recharges slower than in armor mode.
Cloak mode refracts the light around the suit to create an invisibility effect. The user is almost completely invisible except for the blue-tinted energy ripples that occur as light is refracted; trained ears will also hear a slight buzzing coming from a cloaked nanosuit.
The speed at which suit energy depletes in cloak mode depends on how fast the user is moving. Firing a weapon in cloak mode will cause the energy to immediately deplete, so the user should manually switch to a different mode when they wish to fire their weapon. At some point between andCrynet Systems developed the Nanosuit 2. This suit features improved suit modes, as well as an advanced visor mode, and has a complex biochemistry that interfaces with the human body's DNA.
Prophet is the only person known to have a Nanosuit 2, which he gave to Alcatraz. The suit's mix of human and alien DNA allows it to be used as a bioweapon to kill the Ceph and their structures. The Nanosuit 2 can now also be equiped with 4 sperate modules one in each category which are split into: Armour, Power, Stealth and Visor modules.
This allows the user of the Suit to adapt to any situation. Armor is mostly unchanged from the Maximum Armor mode from the original Nanosuit.A copy of his personality and memories returns as the protagonist in Crysis 3 within the Nanosuit 2. At some point, he took part in a CIA-backed drug raid in which civilians were killed.
Angered by the deaths of innocents, he hospitalized his CIA supervisors by beating them to a bloody mess. When he was reprimanded by his superiors, he lashed out at them too. Since he was to be put in Leavenworth federal prison, he figured he should "really earn it" and proceeded to beat up everyone in the room. At the maximum-security prison, he received some documents sent by Jacob Hargreave.
Barnes was set free, but in return he had to do a favor for Hargreave; he was the first soldier to try on the Nanosuit 1. Later at Lingshan, after he was temporarily MIA, Nomadbeing the second-in-command, temporarily took Prophet's role as squad leader. However, because of Nomad's rank, Strickland assumed complete mission control.
Prophet leads Raptor Team through their first few objectives, the first being to find Aztec who was separated from the rest of the squad only to be informed by Jester and Nomad that Aztec was torn to shreds along with a North Korean patrol by an unknown hostile ; he then incinerates his suit via remote and orders the two to stay on mission.
He later regroups with Nomad, Psychoand Jester, who have made a startling find: a boat completely frozen solid in the middle of the tropical island. He then proceeds to order Psycho to "can it" after he questions their true motives for being on the island and argues that Prophet knows more than he's telling him. After Prophet and Psycho's argument, they hear a thunderous roar in the distance; suddenly, an Ceph Scout blasts from the other side of the boat, abducting Jester and dragging him off into the jungle.
They finally manage to find him but it is too late as he was nothing more than a mangled corpse on the side of the mysterious mountain. Prophet proceeds to vaporize his suit and continues forward with the mission. Later he regroups with Nomad, who also begins to question his superiors motives. This startles Prophet as he is used to Nomad taking orders without question and being utterly obedient. He then tells him that he has no idea whats going on and that he was sent to find these people and that's what he is going to do.
Immediately after his debacle with Nomad, he is abducted by a Ceph scout and dragged off into the jungle in the same manner as Jester. Prophet miraculously reappears at the point of the story where Nomad exits the Ceph ship and saves him from a squad of Ceph troopers, but exhibiting strange behavior.
He has somehow managed to jury-rig a complex alien weapon into operation while in the field, and seems to have a much deeper understanding of the Ceph than anyone else, but his suit's thermal systems are badly damaged. Once he returned to the USS Constitutionhe is seen arguing with Psycho who also managed to survive telling him how he's going to take the fight to the Ceph. Prophet was last seen stealing a VTOL and flying back to the island with the intent of stopping the Ceph forces singlehandedly.
Presumed dead after the island is the subject of a nuclear strike, he was last revealed to be alive when Psycho received a radio communication from Prophet on a VTOL with Nomad and Helena Rosenthal after the defeat of the Warrior at the hands of Nomad, whom quickly reacts to this by ordering Psycho to take them back to the island in search of him as thousands of machines pour out of the alien ship.
There are only three references to Prophet during the game.CryFibril is one of the most complex and advanced components of the Nanosuit, giving the wearer unsurpassed physical performance and protection on the battlefield when compared to other artificial muscle systems. It also functions as a medium for the nanosuit modal functions such as the cloak ability. CryFibril was first used to great effect in the Nanosuit 1. With it, the operator could run faster, jump higher, and hit harder than any human alive, thus performing at super-human levels.
It was soon after copied by other companies and governments most notably being the North Koreans and their Nanosuit but all of their iterations were "inferior" compared to Crynet's. The newest version of CryFibril supports a dark blue color compared to the pure black found on the older version. It is apparent that CryFibril is able to fuse and bond with the human body, as shown and mentioned in Crysis 2 and Crysis: Legionwhen Alcatraz suffers fatal wounds at the beginning of the game, shortly before being rescued by Prophet and given the Nanosuit.
Later on, when the Nanosuit is being scanned, it is shown to have bonded with Alcatraz's body through the wounds. The CryFibril is mentioned at the beginning as a semi-organic component to the armor, suggesting it could be alive, or simply replicates biological properties. Sign In Don't have an account?

He works throughout the game with his teammatesprimarily with Laurence "Prophet" Barneshis squad leader, and Michael "Psycho" Sykes. Nomad is described in the Prima's Official Guide as an athletic and muscular Caucasian American in his early 20s. Prophet appears to be a major role model for him.
Nomad was always a very good soldier in the Raptor Team division; however, he was not the first choice for the squad. This allowed Nomad to take his place. Raptor Team is sent to one of the Lingshan Islands in the Philippines under the control of North Korean soldiers — the Korean People's Army after a distress call is received from civilian archaeologists on the island.
Nomad is the protagonist of Crysisand the person which the player controls. Throughout the beginning of the game, Nomad's objectives are centered around gathering intel of why the Koreans are here and where the hostages are being held, subduing and eliminating obstacles along the way. Once enough intel has been gathered to allow Raptor Team to have a fixed location of where the hostages are being held at an excavation siteNomad is sent to rescue Dr.
David Rosenthalwho is soon killed when a dead Ceph Scout lets out a burst of cryo-energy, freezing the chief archaeologist and nearby KPA troopers, but Nomad survives - his suit protecting him from the detonation. One of these involved a radio jammer situated on a KPA cruiserwhich Nomad soon destroys it via target-painting through binoculars to be attacked and sunk by an airstrike.
Nomad then is involved in a tank battlebut he must proceed alone without the assistance from Major Strickland's forces after they meet a large rift in the ground, prohibiting further movement from vehicles. Nomad then proceeds to the minewhere the remaining hostages are being held, in order to evacuate the archaeologists. While attempting to do so, he is captured by General Kyong.
While being inside the mine, a sudden outburst of energy from the Ceph Spaceship within the mountain kills all of Kyong's bodyguards, and re-activates Nomad's nanosuit, allowing him to face Kyong in a one-on-one duel, Nomad soon defeats Kyong.
Nomad then makes his way out of the mountain through the Ceph Spaceship, hoping to find a route outside, facing Cephs aliens along the way. Once exiting the Ceph Spaceship, the island is suddenly flash-frozen by the Ceph Spaceship, further forcing Nomad to travel on foot across frozen and broken terrains which are now occupied by Ceph Troopers and Scouts.
Nomad travels to the USS Constitutionwhile its crew is preparing to make a stand against the Ceph the fate of the surviving KPA soldiers remains unknown, but it is assumed that they are all inevitably dead or retreat from the island. However, when the jet they sent hits the island with a nuclear missile, it only empowers the Ceph, and very soon the US Fleet is overwhelmed by Ceph forces. Nomad is sent to various locations around the ship to fix damaged parts and help combat the Ceph.
In the end, and after killing both the Ceph Hunter and the Ceph WarriorNomad escapes the dying fleet just in time before a massive whirlpool caused by the Warrior sinks the defeated fleet, and he and the two other survivors, Psycho and Helena Rosenthal, receive a transmission from Prophetwho is revealed to be alive, and return to the island to attempt to fetch him.
Nomad is mentioned in Crysis Warhead in the data tapes which reveal the background between Sean O'Neill and Psycho and in the dialogue between the characters. O'Neill expresses his dislike for Nomad because Nomad replaced O'Neill, who was originally planning on joining Raptor Team, but failed an evaluation test. Other references to Nomad during Warhead are in a message Emmerson gives to Psycho concerning the aliens and the exosuits " Prophet and Nomad have made it out of the sphere.
Nomad is still available as a pilot. Psycho asks Nomad if he's okay, to which Nomad replies "Did you disarm the warhead? En route to rescuing Prophet, Nomad's VTOL was shot down by the Ceph and blown up as they were getting out, knocking over everyone and severely injuring Nomad. Prophet came to their rescue and defeated the giant bipedal Ceph. Nomad was able to recover very quickly due to his Nanosuit and when they got to safety, Prophet explained what the mission's purpose really was.You can help confirm this entry by contributing facts, media, and other evidence of notability and mutation.
Crysis is a first-person shooter video game series following the story of several military protagonists equipped with an advanced nanosuit technology that provides them with inhuman physical strength, speed, defense and an ability to go invisible, who fight against the North Korean military and a race of aliens known as Ceph.All Crysis Game Trailers 2007-2013
The first installment in the series is known for its extremely demanding graphics and spawned But Can It Run Crysis meme. The game, set in Augustfollowed the story of a special forces operative Nomad equipped with an advanced nanosuit which grants him a choice of several enhanced physical abilities, including inhuman strength and speed, invisibility and defense. The game plot, set in the future, centers around the awakening of a hostile race of aliens which lied dormant on islands off the coast of the Philippines trailer and gameplay footage shown below.
On April 16th,Crysis Remastered was officially announced by Crytek. Most games in the series received positive reviews from critics and audiences. On Metacritic,  Crysis maintained a 91 average score with 56 critic reviews and 8. For Crysis Warhead Crysis 2  and Crysis 3  the average critics scores were 84, 86 and 76, with average user scores being 7. While the series did not obtain a significant online fandom, a series Wiki  was launched on July 18th, The phrase has slowly evolved into a snowclone as years pass, substituting "But can it run X?
No thanks, take me back to the meme zone!Alcatraz and Prophet are the only known operators of the Nanosuit 2. With the introduction of the Nanosuit 2, it is the most technologically advanced piece of hardware in human possession. The first Crynet Nanosuit, while considered practically perfect, still had its flaws and was already being threatened by the North Korean's iteration of the suit.
The Nanosuit 2 addressed the weaknesses of the earlier model, while also supporting a myriad of new features and hardware. This allows feats which require massive power to be performed with little to no effort at all, such as pushing a fully loaded fuel wagon which has stood on top of rusted rails for years.
Prophet was also able to break a wooden door into splinters and send it flying after kicking it with little to no effort. This implies that with further experience, the N2's maximum strength can become limitless.
Secondly, the suit can absorb energy in a myriad of forms including, but not limited to radiation, static, kinetic, and even carbon released by rotting corpses, and with this power, the suit can become even stronger. The N2 also weighs half that of the N1, thus increasing the speed and agility of the wearer even further.
The Ionic Electroactive Polymer EAP Liquid Armor a fast-twitch reflex co-polymer incorporating colloidal doped ceramics and a copper nanolattice in an ethylene-glycol buckyball matrix gives the wearer unparalleled protection against radiation and physical impact.
It also drastically increases motor reflexes giving users on average a 0. The N1 was only capable of a visual camera feed and the memory of the wearer itself. The non-sentient chip runs at 1.
It can also take over the operator's purely autonomic and regulatory functions in the event of somatic damage. One of the N2's most innovative features, however, is it's ability to not only monitor the physical and neurological state of the soldier, but to actually optimize them.
SECOND continuously regulates dopamine, lactic acid, and corticosteroid levels, anticipates and counteracts debilitating stress and fatigue reactions. The suit also actively augments and maintains the wearer's adrenaline, GABA, and tricyclic levels.
It should be noted however that prolonged exposure to antagonistic neuroinhibitory mechanisms can result in long-term damage to metabolic systems. The Nanosuit 2 is also capable of repairing itself and its user from serious damage in a matter of a few hours, as seen in the case of Prophet when he crashed into Lingshan from outer space at night.
The heat generated during his reentry into the atmosphere burned him and his suit significantly, leaving to the suit to repair itself by dawn. The suit also improves and continually evolves upon data collection technology and upon receiving both physical and internal damage.
Since the suit evolves every time it gets damaged and reinforces itself to that damage over time, the suit being burned away might have forced the suit to develop into a much more powerful version, being rendered invulnerable to almost all kinds of damage. The suit is known to suppress pain to the point where one cannot feel anything even when just touched, for example, a handshake. The suit is also capable of seeping into any wound and fix it at an incredibly drastic rate, as seen in the case of Alcatraz, whose damaged lungs were fixed; albeit at the cost of his larynx and the suit permanently bonding into his body and that imminent death would occur due to the fact that his lungs became dependent on the suit's repairing system forever.
Because of these features, it is implied that the Nanosuit is not only capable of being a life support system but also capable of permanently immunizing its wearers from all toxins, venoms, and diseases of all forms, known and unknown, biological or human-made. This also implies that the suit has a regenerative healing factor unparalleled by any other type of healing factor, meaning even the Hayflick limit is bypassed because the telomeres are prevented from shortening, allowing a cell to divide indefinitely.
The suit also renders aging impossible, as it can store the entire personality and body of its user should they ever part, therefore keeping the original user immortal in some way or another, allowing the user to take some other users' body for their own.
