Crysis Trilogy Now On EA Access For Xbox One
Can it run Crysis? Now the Xbox One can.
Honestly just glad we got to use an iconic Crysis joke in this. pic.twitter.com/USxGrqxh10— EA Access (@EAAccess) July 9, 2020
EA Access is a paid subscription service that brings a collection of EA games to players on PS4 and Xbox One, though the Crysis trilogy is currently only available for Xbox players. A subscription for EA Access costs $4.99 a month, or $29.99 annually.
This year Crytek announced it would be releasing Crysis: Remastered in 2020, with the game set to come to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch--making it the first time a Crysis game will be playable on a Nintendo console.
However, the remaster has not been smooth sailing for Crytek. After a number of screenshots and a trailer leaked ahead of a scheduled July 1 reveal, the developer rescheduled both the reveal and the remaster's release date due to negative feedback to the leaks.
Upon its original release in 2007, Crysis was known for its cutting edge graphics--to the point where the computing power needed to run it became an ongoing meme. With Crysis' history as a graphically intensive game, the leaked footage of the remaster just wasn't up to standard for many fans.
This release does not include the Remastered version of Crysis, though--rather it is the Xbox 360 port of the original.
A statement released on Twitter by Crytek acknowledged the feedback, saying "we've seen all the reactions - the good and the bad - and we're listening!"
