How to change the FOV in Crysis Remastered PC

Crysis Remastered is the graphically enhanced version of Crytek’s award-winning First-Person Shooter game back in 2007. The game recently arrived on Steam and is met with mixed reviews mostly due to optimization issues. Although Crytek introduced graphical enhancements like ray-tracing and better reflections, many players noted that there is no easy way to adjust the Field of View (FOV) from the in-game menu.

Luckily, there are two simple ways to change the FOV if you are playing the PC version. One method is to use the in-game console commands. Alternatively, you can create a file in the game’s directory so the FOV changes automatically whenever you launch the game.

Here are the steps on how to change the FOV:

Method 1: Fix the FOV In-Game

  • Launch Crysis Remastered
  • Open the in-game console (usually ~ or ; on your keyboard)
  • Write “con_restricted=0” and hit ENTER
  • Type “cl_fov=90” and press ENTER. You can choose any value for this command
  • Return to the game

Method 2: Fix the FOV Automatically

  • Go to the game directory for Crysis Remastered in your disk drive
  • Create a .txt file using Notepad
  • Write the following lines inside the .txt file:
    con_restricted=0
    cl_fov=90
  • Save the text file
  • Change the format from .txt to .cfg
  • Launch the game
Crysis Remastered is now available on Steam.

Crysis Remastered was first released on PC as an Epic Games Store exclusive on September 18, 2020. One year later, Crytek launched the Steam version with a 20% discount. If you already own the original Crysis then you will also get an extra 30% discount.

Crytek also announced that they will be releasing the Crysis Remastered Trilogy on October 15, 2021. This includes the remastered versions of Crysis 2 and 3 for PC. Both the bundle and the individual games will be available on Epic Games Store and Steam.
