From hunted to hunter! Electronic Arts Inc. and award-winning developer Crytek GmbH today announced Crysis 3, the flagship sandbox shooter of 2013. Crysis 3 is technologically sublime with unparalleled graphics and dynamic gameplay. The game runs on CryENGINE, Crytek’s proprietary engine. You take on the role of Prophet and return to New York. Here you will discover that the city is surrounded by a nano-dome of the corrupt Cell Corporation. New York’s Liberty Dome is an urban jungle of rampant forest giants, dense swamps and wild rivers. Seven different and treacherous environments have developed in the Liberty Dome known as the Seven Wonders. This dangerous new world requires advanced weapons and tactics. Prophet becomes the planet’s deadliest fighter thanks to his deadly composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit, and devastating alien technology.
“Crysis 3 is an exciting blend of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat techniques and high-tech human and alien weapons. Shooter fans will be thrilled,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek. “Using the latest CryENGINE technology, we create seven unique and visually stunning themes. We can’t wait for people to get their hands on the game.”
The game is set in 2047. Prophet seeks revenge after discovering why Cell Corporation built the shielding nano-domes. The populace has been led to believe that the giant structures provide protection so that the metropolises can be cleared of the remaining Ceph forces. In reality, CELL wants to conquer as much land and technology as possible through the nano-domes. Global domination is the ultimate goal. With alien Ceph on every street corner and human enemies constantly on the attack, no one is safe. Everyone is a target for Prophet’s vengeance.
