Crysis Wiki

This is a timeline of events preceding and chronicling the Crysis series.

One Billion Years Ago[]

  • Overhive Hyperion first came into existence.

Half a Billion Years Ago[]

  • The Ceph successfully colonized the entire M33 Galaxy and started producing seeding ships, spreading them to other galaxies.

65 Million Years Ago[]

  • The Ceph Spaceship and several other vessels arrived at the Solar System. The Ceph Spaceship lands on Earth, a warship stopped at Mars' orbit and another arrived at Jupiter.
  • The Ceph Spaceship arrived at Earth and caused the Cretaceous-Paleogene mass extinction event and went into hibernation for an unknown amount of time before awakening again, entering a cycle of awakening and hibernation after many millions of years to survey and observe evolutionary life on Earth and sending data to its parent galaxy and begins to move from one location to another.
  • The Ceph began their dwelling and construction of multiple lithoships.

2 Million Years Ago[]

  • The Ceph Spaceship arrived at Lingshan Islands and disguised itself as the island's former volcano mountain.

Hundreds of Thousands of Years Ago[]

  • The Ceph on Jupiter shows some interest in Earth and humanity, and begins to study them.



  • An explosion known as the Tunguska event takes place in Russia. It was thought to be caused by a meteor or a comet fragment.
  • Jacob Hargreave discovers the first signs of Ceph technology in Siberia.


  • Karl Rasch and his American friends, Jacob Hargreave and Walter Gould, lead a private expedition to investigate the site of the Tunguska event. The events which transpire there are unknown, but they led to the discovery of the Ceph and the deaths of all the expedition members - except Hargreave, Rasch, and Gould. Hargreave was able to carry the other two injured men across the Siberian wastes in an apparently superhuman demonstration of strength and endurance before being found by a British expeditionary force operating from Vladivostok. They ended up with possession of alien technology and knowledge of the threat that the Ceph poses to human civilization.


  • North Korean leader Kim-Jong-il dies, leaving total dictatorial reign to his son Kim-Jong-Chul.


  • The Nanosuit was developed.

April 18[]

  • Commander Dominic Lockhart attends a U.S. Senate meeting on the use of the Nanosuit armor in the military and the funding for deploying the suits. Lockhart conflicts with Senators M'Benga and Dubain in fully utilizing the Nanosuit armor and its unrivaled capabilities and explains the side-effects of wearing the suit, such as symbiosis with its users and overriding of the nervous system beyond normal functions. This is all due to Lockhart's loss of his nephew in the project. At the end of the meeting, Lockhart vows that he will not support the Nanosuit program's existence.

Before Crysis[]

2016 - 2019[]

2019 (Crysis Escalation)[]

  • Dominic Lockhart arrives at the command post and takes over with authority from the U.S. Government. Michael Sykes meets him for the first time.
  • Laurence Barnes and his team of three Army Rangers (Special Forces Delta) went to investigate an anomaly in a village of one thousand people and discovered a "spike tower" in which it has frozen an entire forest and control the villagers, turning them into fanatical believers and slowly transformed them. Laurence and his team offered to help to no avail until greeted by a priest controlled by the "spike tower" who claimed Laurence to be "The Prophet" and has always known him.
  • A fight broke out as the priest and villagers slowly approaching the team and Laurence is forced to kill the priest before calling the team to retreat. Two of the Rangers die and are tore apart by the "mutant" villagers. Earl - one of the Rangers - went missing during the chaos. Laurence nearly died, but only to be rescued by the U.S. military.
  • C.E.L.L. scientists confirmed the "spike tower" to be Ceph technology and that they were testing to control the human population. Dominic Lockhart ordered a "smart bomb" dropped on the "spike tower", vaporizing everything within 2 square miles and leaving no trace behind.
  • Laurance Barnes is invited to Nanosuit Project and Raptor Team.


  • The founder of CryNet Systems, Jacob Hargreave, produces the Nanosuit 1.0, the pioneer platform of extremely advanced tactical combat armor. All future Nanosuit models are to be based around this initial design.

The United States began to notice abnormal heat signatures and high-frequency signals emanating from the island, and incorrectly assumed they were the result of nuclear tests being carried out by the North Koreans.

Alcatraz sees into Prophet's memories and learns that Hargreave knew of the aliens on the Lingshan islands but told no one, because he wanted to see the effects the aliens had on the nanosuits.
  • The suit's fusion with Alcatraz causes it to repel the cutting lasers. As Hargreave suggests killing him, Tara shoots the scientists, revealing herself as an undercover CIA agent. She tells Alcatraz where to find Hargreave, who no one has seen in person.
  • Alcatraz finds Hargreave's office, where he learns Hargreave is actually over 150 years old and his body is kept in stasis using Ceph technology; he speaks through an advanced computer that contains his consciousness.
