Crytek and the Epic Games Store have updated the minimum and recommended PC specifications for Crysis Remastered Trilogy, which happens to have launched today. AMD’s Radeon 470 and Radeon Vega 56 graphics cards are no longer listed; instead, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti are solely suggested for the minimum and recommended experiences, respectively. (An NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti was previously listed for the minimum graphics requirement.)

AMD’s Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 processors have also been dropped from the PC specifications, leaving only Intel Core processors. An Intel Core i5-3470 is listed as the minimum requirement, while an Intel Core i5-8600 is listed for the recommended experience. (An Intel Core i5-3450 and Intel Core i5-7600k or higher were previously listed for the minimum and recommended tiers, respectively.) The recommended memory requirement has also been raised from 12 GB to 16 GB of RAM.

Crysis 2 Remastered requires 54 GB of storage, while Crysis 3 Remastered only requires 18 GB of storage. Crysis Remastered Trilogy is available for $49.99, but each game in the collection can be purchased separately for $29.99.

  1. Wow! I didn’t even notice. I had been checking throughout the week to see if I could pre-order just to get it out of the way but all the way up to last night both 2&3 had ‘coming soon’. I got both this morning. BTW they’re each on sale for $20.99 for a limited time. I downloaded both but didn’t check the size as I was working on other things and had it going on in the background. I’ll have to doublecheck it when I get home later.

    Edit: It appears the sale is actually a discount for those who own the 1st remaster. Can confirm that the 2nd game DL size is aprox 49GB as well.

    Yep. I played Crysis 2 for a bit last night. It’s been a while since I played but it sure felt a lot smoother. I tried it on my laptop with an RTX 3070 @ 2560×1080 and a desktop with a 3090 @ 5120×1440 w/ all settings on very high but motion blur off. On the laptop, I had DLSS set at performance and it was averaging around 90-135 FPS. On the desktop, DLSS was set on balanced and that display caps at 100 FPS, and the game was pretty much rendering that full time. The bottom line is it looks great and an early impression is that it seems to run a lot smoother, looks great, and oddly enough I feel that the audio seems improved as well but AFAIK they didn’t talk about changes there. BTW the 3090 rig is the 3700X in my signature so despite them dropping AMD stuff in the recommended specs I can say it was probably some kind of screw-up because it ran fine. I have no idea about an AMD GPU but I have a hard time believing they made a game that runs only on Intel/NVIDIA.

    It also seems like they got the VRAM more dialed in than the first remaster. With the 3070 @ 2560×1080 it was holding 6-8 GB but then the 3090 @ 5120×1440 was around 8-9 GB. Now granted, I barely got into the game very far as I only had enough time to get to the subway section, but that’s a far cry from the 10-16 GB I saw the first game using on the 3090.

  5. Okay I saw the video. Crysis 2 definitely benefited the most from the remaster, while 3 barely needed any improvements. Sabre Interactive really put in the work with the remaster of the 2nd game. Now I just wish we’d get a remaster of [I]Crysis Warhead[/I].

  6. Glad to see mostly favorable reviews on the refresh of 2….i will probably grab these. I replayed Crysis 1 last year but haven’t played 2 in probably 5 or so.
