Crysis 2 & 3 Remastered finally land on Steam, work great on Steam Deck

By - | Views: 31,014

After being Epic Store exclusive since last year, Crysis 2 & 3 Remastered are finally available on Steam and they run rather nicely on Steam Deck. Now the full trilogy is finally on Steam.

I remember playing through the original Crysis on Windows at release back in 2007, and my PC at the time could only just about run it. To see all three working so well, in their updated form, on a Steam Deck that runs SteamOS (Linux) is quite incredible really. Technology really has moved on and times like this make me really see it. Honestly, I've been massively impressed with how both look and run on the Steam Deck with pretty reasonable settings on both too:

Here's plenty of gameplay of both, with timestamps in the video between the two games so you can get a good look at how they run.

If you're after a good shooter series, overall it's one not to be missed. Although, plenty of people feel that the original Crysis is better than then Remastered version, but 2 and 3 are much improved in the Remastered versions.

This is one of the best shooter series I've ever played. Seriously. Everyone praise the first but I think the next two are better, and really quite fantastic. Amazing visuals and the gameplay with that suit is just total awesomeness.

Apparently no EA account required, according to reviews. If that is the case, it would make the remakes the more appealing to this crowd (certainly to me).

There is no EA requirement because it's not EA anymore.
I've played through the first remastered and it mostly ran nicely. Honestly, the claim that it is a downgrade is debatable, and if you've never played it you won't even notice. It is a must play.

Haven't played Crysis since around 2008, and the remastered trilogy is very affordable on steam right now, so I will give a try to all of them in at least 6 hours

The only exclusive I bought and had EGS installed for was Borderlands 3. The store exclusives otherwise piss me off…heck, I collect all the free games Epic give away and never install or play them. I feel Steam is more consumer friendly—albeit still a business.

I wonder if the Deck will influence companies to put their games on Steam that they would've otherwise kept exclusive on some other store. The Deck appeal to PC gamers and console users alike, and the more console oriented users aren't going to go through the headaches of setting up other store fronts to function on their Deck, they're just going to stick with what's on Steam.

Potentially, although I would have thought it would take a while more of brisk sales before that starts being very much of a thing.

Deck is not locked behind Steam. Companies can port their laungers and games to Linux and keep all the money without giving 30% cut to Steam, if they wish to.

... But he doesn't claim so? He say most wouldn't bother to do so. And I don't think they will, either.

Maybe:
  • Ability to sell as new?
  • Remastered trilogy?
