EA reveal Crysis 3. All the details inside…
Well it’s official, the visually amazing Crysis series is getting another outing, as EA today announced that Crysis 3 will be arriving on PC, Xbox 360 and PC in 2013.
The game will return to metal clad protagonist to the New York setting of the second title, but this time the whole city has been encapsulated within a giant bio dome or Nanodome created the Cell Corporation. Encased, nature looks to have overtaken the once great metropolis of New York City Liberty and according to EA, it’s an “an urban forest that’s teeming with trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers”.
This change in environment is no doubt a hark-back to the original game, a more open world feel, something in my opinion the second game lacked. And, from the various screens and artwork released so far, it looks like your Nanosuit has been enhanced and your hero will be complimented by a distinctly Rambo-like compound bow, for some stealth and silent kills.
Speaking about the announcement, Cevat Yerli, Crytek’s CEO said
“Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love”.
“Leveraging the latest CryEngine technology, we’re able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.”
Well time will tell but if Crysis 3 can deliver the sand box elements of the 1st game, and the more refined FPS mechanics of the 2nd instalment, then we may have the game of 2013 already.
For now, have a look at these amazeball announcement images.
Oh and for gamers that are really eager to pre-order the game, Crytek have also announced the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition.
