The hunted becomes the hunter! Electronic Arts Inc. and award-winning developer Crytek GmbH, today announced Crysis 3, the premier sandbox shooter experience of 2013. Powered by Crytek's proprietary CryENGINE, Crysis 3 advances the state of the art with unparalleled visuals and dynamic shooter gameplay. Players take on the role of 'Prophet' as he returns to New York, only to discover that the city has been encased in a Nanodome created by the corrupt Cell Corporation. The New York City Liberty Dome is a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. Within the Liberty Dome, seven distinct and treacherous environments become known as the Seven Wonders. This dangerous new world demands advanced weapons and tactics. Prophet will utilize a lethal composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit and devastating alien tech to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.

Crysis 3 will be available spring 2013 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and PC.
...and as I was reading, I thought "this has hit the streets"? Then I got to the last part, what a tease.

graphics still looks similar to Crysis 2 with little improvements, but with the engine, maybe it has big improvements as a whole

Wait a second, what?


Crytek has just said that they want to move back to open world exploration, which is a huge step in the right direction.

They follow this up with the statement that there will be 7 environmental levels (jungle, lava, ice, .... I'd imagine), weapons unlocked by buying the initial game at a higher price, and finally stating that the "advanced" weapon that will be used is a composite crossbow. What?

I realize that EA will be the distributor, and leaking this information will help with the Mass Effect PR disaster, but why would you tell people anything more than "we're going back to our sandbox roots?" The rest of this statement basically says "we listened to some of what you said about the second, but still decided to sledgehammer in concepts from other successful games, despite not fitting the developed continuity, anyways. You're all idiots who will buy this game anyways...."


I really hope that I'm proven wrong, but even Crytek has to answer to EA. No matter how good the creative team, EA's goals kill franchises far more often than they improve them.

I found it too strange... Prophet dead is like no sense.... the guy is the best char along Psycho

if you're playing it now you should know that everyone in the game mistaking alcatraz as prophet since he was wearing prophet nanosuit. but you will know the true answer after you beat the final stage :D
Yeah.... I keep thinking.... why don't this guy just tells at once that he's not prophet to this damn doctor.... lol...

Meh, I truly believe the likes of Crytek and Bioware can do stupid things of their own. There are no saints in this world.

Anyway looking forward to it as I like the story.

Prophet shot himself to disconnect from his suit, how did he YOU into the suit after that?

The suit isolates and contains the alien virus when you contract it, why didn't it do that to Prophet?

Eh with that bow not creating any noise, and having any muzzle flash, I would imagine it will be the ultimate stealth weapon.

And didn't we wipe out all the ceph in NYC already?

I hope that they put more time on the PC version. Holy crap, by the time Crysis 3 launches we'll have Radeons HD 8000 and GTX 780 or GTX 685, what NVIDIA decides to call it.

CryTek, please make our hardware beg and cry for showing the Windows Desktop instead of your demanding game.

Also, Crysis 1 on console is a joke compared to it on PCs. Probably that's why you chose a more simple and closed scenario like New York for Crysis 2. You could have changed city for Crysis 3. And I hope seeing a lot of foliage on the PC version. More visual complexity. Feel that your screen is full of things, that the environment is covering you.

Mix that with some 3D and I think it would be a great experience. Think of Avatar, but better.

He put the suit on you and then shot himself so it would fully function for you.
And the virus... I wondered the same thing, but remember Prophet had been in the alien tube things exploring and such. He may have just gotten too high of an exposure for the suit to filter out all at once perhaps too.
