Crysis Remastered PC – Game is Crashing – How to fix

Crysis Remastered 2020 crashing on PC fix – Crysis Remastered is a complete remake of the original title that was released in 2007. The remastered version features remastered graphics and textures optimized for a new generation of hardware. If you have never played a Crysis title then let me tell you, Crysis is a first-person shooter video game developed by Crytek and was originally published by Electronic Arts. The remastered version has been published by Crytek though.

You get to control a special forces soldier codenamed Nomad. You can also select various modes in Nomad’s military “Nanosuit” which draw power from the suit’s energy. The weapons can be customized without pausing the flow of time, for example changing firing modes, changing scopes or adding sound suppressors.

Now that I have covered the basic description about Crysis Remastered, lets talk about the performance of the game. There is no denying that Crysis games have always been extremely demanding. Same is the case with the 2020 version. While players who are using high-end gaming rigs are not facing as many issues, low-medium end users are experiencing some good amount of problems. That is why we decided to come up with a basic guide that will show you some simple tweaks that you can try in order to fix the crashing issues that you are having.

Crysis Remastered PC – Game is Crashing – How to fix

Make sure you are using the latest drivers

Nvidia and AMD have not released any graphics drivers optimized for Crysis Remastered yet. But I am pretty sure they will do it soon. Until that happens just update to the latest drivers that are available. Just fill up the details and your driver should be available for download.

If you are a Nvidia user then you can directly update your driver from the Geforce Experience application. You can also download the driver directly from the link below.

If you are an AMD user then you can find the latest Adrenaline driver from the link given below. 20.8.3 is the version you need to download. It is an optional driver but that shouldn’t cause any problem.

Try to verify the in-game files to fix crashes

Verifying the files of Crysis Remastered via the Epic Games launcher could fix any sort of performance issue that you are having. Here is how to do it:

  • Open Epic Games Launcher
  • Go to your Library
  • Take your mouse pointer on Crysis Remastered
  • Click on the Settings icon () beside the Launch icon
  • Click on Verify
  • Restart the launcher after the process is completed

For some games the verification process might take decent amount time and your CPU usage might also shoot up. Be patient and try to avoid any other application during the process.

Terminate any sort recording or overclocking utilities

Close any kind of recording or overclocking utility that is running on your PC. Overclocking applications like the RivaTuner or MSI Afterburner, are causing crashes for a lot of games. Sadly, Crysis Remastered is one of them. Even the slightest change in the base memory clock or core clock via an overclocking application is causing the game to crash after few minutes. A lot of games had the same problem. So it is better to stay on the safe side.

Make sure you are using the latest Windows version

The store page of Crysis Remastered has specifically recommended that you used the latest version of Windows 10. If you are a Windows 10 user then you should definitely consider updating your OS and keep it as updated as possible. Microsoft releases performance based updates every now and then. Just a few days ago Microsoft released some updates solely focused on increasing the performance of Windows 10.

It is pretty a easy process.

  1. Just open your Windows Update settings (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update)
  2. Select Check for updates
  3. Once the update appears, you can select Download and install now.

Make sure you have Whitelisted Crysis on your AV Software

If you are using a third-party Anti-Virus software then chances are the crashes are being caused by it. Anti-Virus softwares today are extremely heavy and false positives are quite common from them.

Try running Crysis Remastered once after disabling your Anti-Virus software temporarily.

If you are using Windows Defender instead of a third-party AV software then here is how to add Crysis Remastered on the exceptions list of Windows Defender:

  • Go to Windows 10 settings
  • Click on Update & Security
  • Select Windows Security from the left sidebar
  • Click on Virus & threat protection
  • Under Virus & threat protection click on Manage settings
  • Under Exclusions click on Add or remove exclusions
  • Click on Add an exclusion
  • Select File
  • Select the .exe or executable file of Crysis
  • Restart your PC

Grant administrator rights to Epic Games Launcher

Launching the Epic Launcher with administrator rights might solve your problems. Here is how to do it:

  • Go to the folder where you have installed Epic Games Launcher
  • Right-click on EpicGamesLauncher.exe and select Properties
  • Go to the Compatibility tab
  • Click Change settings for all users
  • Under Privilege Level, check Run this program as administrator
  • Click Apply

Try to re-install the game (Try only if nothing works)

If none of the fixes mentioned above work for you then is your last resort. Game installations go wrong all the time. A file might have gone corrupted during the installation process. And that might be the reason why the game is crashing for you. So do a fresh installation of the game once.


Note : It is not guaranteed that these steps or methods will fix your issue 100%. These are just some basic steps that we would recommend you to try until the developers release a patch to optimize the game.


These are all the steps we have for the time being. All the steps listed are basic steps and does not require you to take any advanced measures. Some of these steps or methods might work for you but nothing is guaranteed. As performance issues can vary from user to user. We will keep on adding new steps or fixes as we progress further in the game.
