Crysis Remastered PC Update 2.0 Adds Missing Ascension Mission

Update 2.0
Update 2.0 Crytek

Crysis Remastered just got a whole lot better. The remaster of the iconic 13-year old game was criticized for having fewer features. It was also panned for the lack of the Ascension mission. This mission got omitted from consoles in the original game as it was too much for the old hardware to handle. However, even the remaster didn’t feature Ascension on consoles and PC. This left some fans (including me) pissed. You were purchasing an updated version of the game and you didn’t even get all the content.

Well, worry no more. Update 2.0 released today brings the Ascension mission back to the game. But this is only available for PC. We don’t know when or if this mission will make its way to current-gen consoles. Now, I can finally pick up the game on PC.

The update also improves game CPU utilization. Not by a lot though, it still doesn’t efficiently use all cores. Several improvements have been made to Shadow and Lighting quality on "Very High" and "Can it run Crysis" settings. PC players can now turn on aim-assist if they are using a controller.

Developers confirmed that the next major update will feature DLSS support. This should be a big help in the frame rate department for Nvidia users. The update fixed a few dozen bugs as well. You can read all about it on the official Reddit post.

Crysis Remastered is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Epic Games Store). If you don’t want to spend money on Crysis Remastered, no worries. You can still make your original game look good via modding. Check out our previous article for more information.
