Crysis 3 Preorders Soar

In advance of the release of Crysis 3 next week, Electronic Arts announces the shooter sequel has racked up 35% more preorders than Crysis 2:

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. Gamers are also devouring YouTube videos of Prophet, the Nanosuit and the 7 Wonders of the New York Liberty Dome, with more than 16 million video views on the official Crysis YouTube channel.

I'll wait and see if it shows up on Steam too. If not, then I probably won't buy it. Maybe pick it up at a deep discount around Xmas or next year.


I'd be a little surprised if it did. EA seems determined to run itself into obscurity.

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.

No clue to what your talking about, I bought mine via GMG and I already have a key and it preloaded from Origin, ready to go on the 19th.

The Origin copies go live on the 19th. The Amazon copies go live a week later. Yet the non-download copies sold via Amazon go live the 19th. It's ONLY the download copies that are being delayed by a week. This is EA bullshit to promote Origin.

Announcement to tell people that yep, people are preordering the game so you should too. I always hate these things, they seem like such a waste of time.

And yet, it works, and the sheep lap it up...

Just like every second game is a game of the year, etc...

I leave the inferences and implications to your capabilities, Gentle Reader.
EA's boycott of Steam is "actively working against my interests"; releasing it on Steam is not. And if Crysis 3 does get released on Steam then me buying it would send a message to EA that they can't ignore the platform. My point was perfectly clear.

A desktop shortcut from Origin works exactly the same way it does from steam. Just sayin.

Meh. I'm not pre-ordering anymore games after the 'Crysis' of Aliens: Colonial Marines. Not that I don't like Crysis, the first one was great, and Crysis 3 doesn't look like it'll be suffering from false advertising. I am going to just wait from now on, seeing as I have too many unfinished games as is.

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

Got my new box built, and preordered from greenman, I'm ready for this.

Oh yeah the MP beta was pretty awesome, but I'm actually looking forward to the single player (for once).

This looks like a good candidate for those "lets play" youtube videos, the repetition of shooting generic aliens and soldiers might induce sleepiness, or coma.

still, very nice looking tech demo they've made.

I heard you could already pirate the Xbox version. Lets see how fast the PC version gets pirated.

If it's released on Steam then I'll definitely grab it, as the multiplayer beta was really pretty decent and I enjoyed Crysis 2. I'm fine with Origin but I like to buy all my games on Steam for the community features (taking and sharing screenshots, tracking your in-game time, etc).

If not then I'll pass on it. I passed on BF3, ME3 and DS3 even though I was interested in them and I'll pass on SimCity as well. There's no point supporting a company that's actively working against my interests.

Sounds like somebody needs to upgrade - get a 7950 and get this along with Bioshock Infinite for free!
Thinking of it as a $180 GPU upgrade. That you don't need. :o
Having done just that,

NICE!!!

They definitely ramped up the hype, that's for sure. I gotta admit it looks pretty cool, and I definitely enjoyed Crysis 2, but I'm still not sure about getting this for 60 bucks...
