crytek Crysis 3 releases spring 2013

Players will take control of Prophet in Crysis 3 as they return to an infected New York to fight the corrupt Cell Corporation, Electronic Arts confirmed this morning.

This morning's official announcement confirms last week's Crysis 3 rumor.

Following the events of Crysis 2, the New York of 2047 has become encased in a Nanodome. The New York City Liberty Dome is a urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. The Liberty Dome is divided into seven distinct and treacherous environments known as the Seven Wonders.

Prophet, armed with a composite bow and his enhanced Nanosuit, is on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation's motives for building the quarantined Nanodomes, according to the press release. 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.

Prophet seems to kill himself early on in Crysis 2, though players later discover that Prophet's consciousness seems to be a part of the Nanosuit.

"Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love," Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek, said in a prepared statement. "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."

People who pre-order the $59.99 game, due out spring 2013 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, will get a special Hunter Edition, according to the press release. The Hunter Edition of the game gives players early access to the new signature bow and its attachments in multiplayer, plus the Hunter Nanosuit module which adds additional power and functionality to the super-suit. Gamers who pre-order now will also have a head start when playing online with a bonus XP boost up to level 5, a unique bow skin and three exclusive dog tags.

Some retailers are also offering bonus pre-order unlocks on top of what you get with the Hunter Edition, according to the press release:

Stalker Pack - Includes the base game, all Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: for players who like to stalk their prey from the shadows the Stalker Pack provides early multiplayer access to the deadly semi-auto Jackal shotgun. This powerful, close-range shotgun comes with a unique silencer attachment, custom weapon skin and two exclusive themed in-game dog tags.

Overkill Pack - Includes the base game, all Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the Overkill Pack features early multiplayer access to the Typhoon assault weapon and skin. Spewing 500 rounds a second, the Typhoon gives players the ability to go guns blazing to take back the Liberty Dome. Also included are two exclusive Overkill themed in-game dog tags.

Predator Pack - Includes the base game, all the Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the Predator Pack delivers early multiplayer access to the Feline submachine gun and exclusive camo. With an extremely fast rate of fire and a 60 round magazine the Feline is highly effective and deadly, at short range.

It's good to know that it is coming next year and not this year. I can't wait to see what the updated CryEngine 3 will produce.

Me too. I hope it turns out to be as bad on hardware as the original one was

Umm, why would you "want" a game to run like absolute dog crap? I truly believe that the original Crysis ran the way it did, not because of how hard it pushed the hardware, but because of how poorly it may have been written (partially due to the DX10 implementation). When current systems (talking about the Radeon 7900/GTX 680 series) can still barely run a 4 1/2yr old game acceptably at 1920x1080/1200, it's no longer about "this game pushes hardware hard", it's more about "this is a very poorly optimized game/engine".

"Jaw dropping" is an understatement.

If it weren't for that game, we would've still stuck with 4870x2 and 295. :p

And I wouldn't say poorly optimized. At all

We have Metro 2033, Battlefield 3, Skyrim. Metro 2033 arguably pushes hardware harder than any of the others in the list. This is also why console gaming is where it is now. I don't enjoy spending $500-600 on a video card just to get a few more fps so the game runs well.

The days of having to spend $500 to $600 on a video card are over. Now, you'd be getting dual video cards with that kind of money. Pushing the hardware isn't always a good thing as evidenced by the original Crysis. Crytek has done a great job at optimizing CryENGINE 3 and they're still updating it with PC-specific features. I'm confident that Crysis 3 will look great and that the PC version will look significantly better than the console versions.

I like the new ideas in Crysis 3! I hope it has sandbox play like the original, and it's not just marketing speak. Seems it may have a nice mix of jungle and urban! :)

The original is NOT sandbox'ed. Crysis 1 is still a linear game taking place in a open-forest but there is only one way to B.

Enjoyed Crysis and Warhead but didn't really rate Crysis 2 they made it feel so 'console' and linear a massive step down from the original game where you had almost like a sandbox to play in.

Won't be bothering with this game, they are making it like urban Rambo with the silly bow and arrows.

Wrong choice of words to explain my disappointments with Crysis 2 after Crysis.

That was good, but short. I hope the gameplay trailer is longer than 19 seconds.

Finished all 3 of them so far, will be giving this a play. But as others have pointed out my only concern is that I want to at least feel as tho Im in a Sandbox and can deviate from set mission and just go killing or exploring. Not this tight street/corridor winder that we saw in Crysis 2. The setting was imba but they failed on having mutiple routes or a sense of an "open" city.

Bow and arrow? This is set in the future, right?

Call me different, but I liked Crysis 2 better than the original.

This should be interesting. Not warming up to the idea that we are playing Prophet though.. We know he died in Crysis 2, even if some of his consciousness somehow was binded to the Nanosuit.. Getting a little farfetched.
