Three Crysis Games Come To Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Remember when Crysis was this unobtainable dream of PC graphics with an impossible bar for modern hardware to hit its full potential? I remember poring over screenshots and thinking video games, at their best, could not look better than the original Crysis. The Xbox 360 version of the game is not quite in that same league, but you can still give it a little extra boost with today's announcement that three of the four Crysis games are coming to Xbox One's backwards compatibility program.

Crysis, Crysis 2, and Crysis 3 are all available now, according to a tweet by Microsoft's Larry Hryb.

The Crysis games put you in the role of people who come into possession of super suits that enhance all their abilities. The titles were effectively first-person shooter playgrounds for using those abilities, though fans have typically preferred the first game's broader style of gameplay.

As with all Xbox One backwards compatibility titles, owning the game digitally already simply adds it to your library. You can also just put in the 360 discs to start a download, or buy the games digitally now if you wanted to play them.
