EA has announced that the third game in the epic Crysis franchise will hit store shelves in 2013. Players will once again don 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.
In Crysis 3, New York is no longer the concrete jungle gamers remember from Crysis 2 (read our review). The New York City Liberty Dome is a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers.
Players will navigate through seven distinct and treacherous environments in Crysis 3, known as the Seven Wonders. Prophet will add new weapons to his arsenal including a bow, enhanced Nanosuit and all new alien tech.
“Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love,” said CevatYerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. “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.”
The story is set in 2047 where Prophet is on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation’s motives for building the quarantined Nanodomes. The citizens were told that the giant citywide structures were resurrected to protect the population and to cleanse these metropolises of the remnants of Ceph forces. In reality, the Nanodomes are CELL’s covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest for global domination. 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.
EA has also announced the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition that gives players early access to the new signature bow and its attachments, plus the Hunter Nanosuitmodule, which adds additional power, and functionality to the super-suit. The Crysis 3 Hunter Edition is available on Origin.com and other participating retailers for $59.99 (Rs. 3,100 approx.).
