Crysis 3 Announced

Following recent clues, EA officially announces Crysis 3, saying the next installment in Crytek's first-person shooter series is due in spring of next year for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. "Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love," said 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." Though still a year off, they already outline three early multiplayer unlocks you can earn by preordering the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition (though the link they provide doesn't lead anywhere yet) as well as additional perks like a nanosuit module and an XP boost. Like Crysis 2, the sequel is set in a future version of New York City, here are some screenshots, and here's word:

Players take on 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. The New York City Liberty Dome is a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. Within the Liberty Dome, seven distinct and treacherous environments become known as the Seven Wonders. This dangerous new world demands advanced weapons and tactics. Prophet will utilize a lethal composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit and devastating alien tech to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.

Awesome quote pyramid sir

So apparently a bow is a new weapon in this one. A bow. Against robots/heavily-armored aliens.

My main issue with Crysis was how overpowered the suit made you and from what I've heard, it was even more OP in Crysis 2 (basically gave you infinite invisibility once fully upgraded). They really need to make it more balanced in C3.

They're balancing it out by giving you a high tech...bow. I have no idea how they thought this would be met with anything but derision.

Setting looks intriguing. Did Crytek ever claim Crysis 2 was a sandbox game?

Because everyone played Crysis, and even Crysis 2, and they're all hurtin' for another one, right? ....

No one played this shit. Where did this sudden demand come from that you feel the need to create a third one? lulz.

And then when fans demand a sequel to one of EA's rare good titles, they bitch that it didn't sell well enough. Makes no fucking sense.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

I love how it's a year off, and EA is already pimping the pre-order bullshit. One week from now they'll announce the exclusive Day One DLC.

Fucking EA.

Eh, they're just spinning faster as they get closer to the drain...

Isn't Prophet dead? I guess it's the Prophet / Alcatraz hybrid or something.

Anyway, it looks very nice, and I did enjoy Crysis 2 quite a bit. I'll pick it up for 5 bucks at some point.

No thanks. Crysis 2 was certainly enjoyable but I've never had to put up with so much bullshit thanks to their limited-activations DRM. Not only that but inevitably it won't be available on Steam and will require Origin. I passed on BF3 and ME3 because of it and I'll pass on C3 as well.

EA can fuck right off.

People thought Alcatraz was Prophet because he was wearing the suit.. so I guess that's what they're saying..?

There's also some funkiness with Prophet's consciousness roaming around in the suit, but that wasn't quite explained.

Anyways, I'm glad they're finishing it as a trilogy. I'm not surprised by the fast turn around for the third.. based on what I saw on my PC, I'd say there's very little more they could squeeze into a new build that consoles could still handle.

I will say I thought Crysis 2 was a blast to play for a shooter. I just think the standard shooter doesn't hold as much appeal as it once did in this age of RPG/shooters.

OK..... *scratches head*..... Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Prophet die in Crysis 2? I never played the game, but from what I've heard, he dies and then Alcatraz uses his suit in Crysis 2.
Near the end of the game, there's this non-clever twist where Prophet's mind was stored in the suit and takes over or something. If that means Prophet and Alcatraz are now one, or Alcatraz is goners, I have no idea.. I don't really remember the details anymore, only that something like this happened.

I was thinking the same thing, then figured it must be a prequel. /shrugs
