All We Know About Crysis 3 So Far
So, Crysis 3 is officially a thing. EA today announced its existence and have given it the vague release date of Spring 2013. Due to be released for the Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3, this upcoming Crysis instalment takes us to 2047 New York. You play as the returning protagonist Prophet and he is not happy. He finds the city has been encased in a Nanodome created by the corrupt CELL Corporation. The New York City Liberty Dome is now an urban rainforest, packed with overgrown trees, swamplands and rivers.
Inside said dome are the seven “distinct and treacherous” environments, known only as the Seven Wonders. Prophet uses a “lethal composite bow” (image above), which was first seen last week in leaked box art images, an enhanced Nanosuit and alien tech.
From what we can gather, Crysis 3‘s story will be based around Prophet’s revenge mission against the CELL Corporation. Revenge you say? Prophet has discovered that these quarantine Nanodomes are the direct result of CELL’s covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest for global domination.
The official blurb reads, ”With Alien Ceph lurking around every corner and human enemies on the attack, nobody is safe in the path of vengeance. Everyone is a target in Prophet’s quest for retribution.” I don’t know about you, but I think that sounds like a lot of fun!
Additionally, the developer Crytek have announced Crysis 3‘s pre-order details. The Hunter Edition allows for early access to the new bow weapon as well as all attachments, plus the Hunter Nanosuit module for use in multiplayer. Those who pre-order will also get a bonus XP boost up to level five, a unique bow skin and three exclusive dog tags. Pick up the Hunter Edition from Origin.com and select retailers for £49.99.
