Crysis Remastered may include Crysis Warhead's campaign

Crysis is a classic, especially for PC gamers. While the title is most famous for its high-end graphical effects, the game also offers highly satisfying gameplay and large open maps which were unlike most shooters of that era. Players had options with Crysis, be it to stealth through areas using the Nanosuit's powers or to slaughter the enemy with strength and armour enhancing abilities. 

In 2008, Crysis received a standalone expansion called Crysis Warhead, placing players in the shoes of Psycho, a squyad-mate of Crysis' protagonist, Nomad, who has an independent mission which runs concurrently with Crysis' campaign. The game features enhanced gameplay, and a multiplayer mode called Crysis Wars. Crysis and Crysis Warhead eventually released in a single package called Crysis Maximum Edition.    

When Crytek revealed Crysis Remastered, the studio discussed the game's "single-player campaigns" suggesting that their upcoming remaster would include the campaigns of both Crysis and Crysis Warhead. Crysis only contained one campaign, making the mention of "Campaigns" a clear reference to Crysis Warhead. 

Below is a portion of Crytek's press release for Crysis Warhead. 
 

   Crysis Remastered will focus on the original game’s single-player campaigns and is slated to contain high-quality textures and improved art assets, an HD texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, and parallax occlusion mapping, particle effects will also be added where applicable. Further additions such as volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections provide the game with a major visual upgrade.

Yeah noticed that in the video I posted. Gosh, I hope so.

Also, there are suggestions the very short trailer already includes RT. Look at Prophet's visor as he turns around Quote

Yeah I watched the video and it's getting me more excited for the game, but the last time I got this excited for a game I ended up being disappointed.Quote

All they need to do is tweak the AI as suggested, and give it new graphics.

I'm really hoping it doesn't prove to be that difficult tbh.Quote

I just want it to stay true to the original on PC. I like the individual suit controls of Crysis 1 and Warhead. As much as I like Crysis 2 and 3, Crysis 1/warhead are the best in the series IMHO.Quote

It does need tweaks to the AI tbh. As said, you take someone out almost silently with no one in view yet all of a sudden they all know exactly where you are. For the time that was perfectly acceptable, but it kinda took away some of the skill element.

Like, in Far Cry 2 (and this was the only great part) there was a silenced poison dart gun and it literally was silent. You could find a bush, sit in it from far enough away so that they couldn't see you and literally take out an entire village. That was by far and away the most enjoyable part for me.

Looks wise I think they are going to absolutely nail it. Therefore, they really do need to work on the decade old AI. I don't want it to feel any different, I just want to be rewarded for taking ages.Quote
