Crysis 3 Officially Announced For Spring 2013

EA has just this very second dropped the official announcement for Crysis 3, following the accidental leaking of listings for the game last week, showing the sleek Nanosuit-wearing hero Prophet, sporting a high-tech crossbow. Now today sees a proper reveal for the game, with details and stuff, as well as a pre-order offer.

Crysis 3 will see you returning to the Big Apple to the New York 'Liberty Dome' in 2047, where Prophet will find himself embarking upon a mission of revenge after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation's motives for building quarantined Nanodromes.

With the public told that they're for the protection of citizens and the cleansing of the alien Ceph remnants, you find out that they are in fact an attempt to grab land and technology, as Cell strive for world domination. It's up to Prophet to stop them.

Each of the seven domes - known as the Seven Wonders - will be completely unique and distinct, with Prophet facing various dangers in each Nanodrome. Thankfully, he'll have his trusty composite bow, devastating alien tech and of course, an enhanced Nanosuit, as he becomes the ultimate hunter.

In addition to today's unveiling, EA has also announced pre-order bonuses for Crysis 3, with the Hunter Edition of the game granting the signature bow weapon and attachments, the Hunter Nanosuit module, a level 5 XP boost in multiplayer, a unique bow skin and three additional dog tags. Selected retailers will also offer the following:

  • 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.

Crysis 3 is scheduled for release in spring 2013. Check out all five debut screenshots below.

Meh. Hopefully with this out of the way they can work on some potentially interesting and fun games, like Timesplitters 4 or Star Wars Battlefield 3.

Sorry, but is there really a need for you to post the sites logo on every picture? That's the equivalent of an artist grabbing someone elses picture and putting their signature on it. Real fuckin' neato, guys.

@3 - Almost every site does it. It's called a watermark and it stops other sites from nicking our assets.

@#3 I believe it's to stop other sites just lazily copying the pictures from here and passing the work off as their own, so a necessary evil I'm afraid :p

How about fixing the unbelievable issues with the previous installment of the series? You'd think they'd figure out how to fix a game first before working on a new one, but I guess that's just asking too much of them huh

@7 An argument that would make sense if they created the images themselves or if the images were made purely for this site.. it is bullshots created by Crytek, though. All the watermark does here is prevent other sites from hotlinking I suppose? Oh well.

Really? Watermarks like that are supposed to prevent plagiarism?

I'm no computer whiz but I'm pretty sure I just need a symbol with the exact same size or larger and cover it up with no problem in paint. Copy paste.

On topic. I can't wait for this game. I hope the trophies aren't as fucked up as in Crysis 2.

Or just do it like Crysis 1 - No online trophies.

Thanks for that. All these homogeneous military shooters must be going to my brain, affecting my spelling subconsciously without me realising it.

Looks more like the first one and that's not a bad thing. EA look desperate throwing in pre order bonuses the day it's confirmed tho. You trying to bribe people into buying the game EA?

@3,6,7 &15

...photoshop, 10 minutes and no more watermark. That mark doesn't stop folks that know how to get around it.

Anyhow, can't wait!

Considering what a buggy mess the first 2 are, I can't see many people getting this.

Great, can't say I'm exactly excited this time around after all the crap C2 had me go through with all it's bugs and glitches. Crytek needs to earn my business, just because they're announcing pre-order incentives for multiplayer doesn't make me wanna throw money at it. Spring 2013, no hurry.

I for one cant wait for this game. Although crysis 2 was a huge disappointment I hope that they can learn from their mistakes and make an awesome game. I dont know why people are writing the game off already lets see some gameplay before making a judgement.

Is anyone else upset that the article mentions a picture with Prophet holding a cross bow but the picture is him holding a compound bow?

You guys completely missed the point... watermarking stops hyperlinking to images hosted by PS3T... it uses up PS3T bandwidth limits when the image is being used elsewhere by thiefers. It stops hyperlinking, not actually using the image. If they did use the image they would have to host it elsewhere...

This is what Crysis 2 SHOULD HAVE been based upon story wise. The story for Crysis 2 was just horrendous and lacking. Let's hope this installment can save the series and put back the genuine quality that were all used to from the first one game.
