The countdown to the launch of Crysis 3 has begun! In just four days, Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA) and award-winning developer Crytek GmbH will unleash Crysis 3 to gamers worldwide. Anticipation has been building for months, as press and fans praise the gorgeous visuals and unparalleled power of the Nanosuit. More than three million gamers worldwide downloaded the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta propelling pre-orders to new heights, now reaching 35% over Crysis 2.

Considering Amazon is giving $20 credit AND Crysis 1 for preordering Crysis 3...

That actually made me want to go pre-order... But then I saw that their download apparently doesn't unlock until a WEEK later.

Also, starting February 22 at 11 AM (PST) you made pre-load the game in anticipation of the release on February 26, 2013.

The physical copies go live on the 19th. So this is more EA bullshit to promote Origin. Suddenly I think I just lost all desire for this game for more than 5 bucks. Good job, EA.
