All three Crysis games are backward compatible on Xbox One


Three more for the big long list

The Xbox One can run Crysis. It’s a long-running meme in video games to ask if something can run Crysis, a game that was infamously resource-intensive when it released 11 years ago. Now, Xbox One has the opportunity to run Crysis—albeit by emulating the Xbox 360 version.

All three Crysistitles (Crysis, Crysis 2, and Crysis 3) are now available on Xbox One as part of the backward compatibility program. Three games’ worth of nanosuits and cloaking should tide you over for a while.

However, this isn’t all of the Crysisgames. There was apparently a spin-off called Crysis Warheadthat released a year after the first Crysis, and it’s only on PC. It’s described as a “side-plot parallel to that of the original game.” It’s the Opposing Forceand Blue Shiftto the original Half-Life. This is my roundabout way of getting to say that I rememberOpposing Forceas nothing short of excellent.
