Crysis 3 is now really real. EA reveal game after recent leak
After a bit of a mishap a week or so back, EA have now officially announced Crysis 3, confirming it is in fact on the way – which we already knew. However, the official reveal gives a bit more info.
EA comment that the game will once again see players take on the role of Prophet for his return to New York. The city is now encased in a Nanodome – created by the Cell Corporation. The city will be overgrown, with “urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers“.
.“Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love,” comments Cevat Yerli, 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.”
