In days past, the most famous means of testing your PC's gaming chops was to see if it could run Crytek's stunning first-person shooter, Crysis. Well, the Xbox One now can.
As announced by Major Nelson, the entire Crysis trilogy will now be available for Xbox One owners via the company's ever-growing catalogue of backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games.
What begins as a simple rescue mission becomes the battleground of a new war as alien invaders swarm over a North Korean island chain. Armed with a powerful Nanosuit, become invisible to stalk enemy patrols, or boost your strength to lay waste to vehicles. An advanced AI controls your enemies, so play smart. One wrong move out here could be your last.
The world has been ravaged by a series of climatic disasters and society is on the verge of breakdown. Now the aliens have returned with an invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind. One supersoldier wielding the Nanosuit 2, will make the last stand to save humanity. Note: Crysis 2 Multiplayer has been shut-down. See https://www.ea.com/service-updates/2018.
The fate of the world is in your hands. New and old enemies threaten the peace you worked so hard to achieve 24 years ago. It won't be easy, but your Nanosuit helps you clear a path to victory. Craft a stealthy attack to defeat your opponents quietly, or decimate the enemy with a blaze of brute force. There's no wrong way to save the world.
The company also recently added two Call of Juarez games and Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 HD to the list of backwards-compatible games. This month's Games with Gold, on the other hand, are Victor Vran and Hitman: Blood Money, both of which you can now get for free with an Xbox Live Gold subscription.
