Crysis 3 unveiled, to be launched in 2013

Crysis 3 has officially been announced by EA, and boy does it look like a stunning game. Officially set to be launched in 2013 (date pending), we look set to combine the stories of Crysis 1 and Crysis 2 with spectacular graphics and art, which is why we’re looking forward to what could be the most anticipated Shooter of 2013 (and the first blockbuster of 2013 announced thus far). Our writers loved Crysis 2, so we only have high expectations for Crysis 3. The game is set in 2047, and it will be powered by CryENGINE of course, pushing the game even further (meaning we need to probably upgrade our computers to play it).

The story seems to be – “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 utilise a lethal composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit and devastating alien tech to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.”. If you are wondering, the game will continue to focus around Prophet, as he tries to discover the motive behind Cell Corproration’s Nanodomes.

Aliens? Killers? Seven Wonders? New Weapons? Check, Check, Check, and Check! We’re excited, and it seems the the new Crossbow seems to be the main focus weapon this time around (according to EA it’s a pre-order exclusive at the moment). It seems those of you who pre-order the game will also get a few extra goodies such as:

  • 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.

Sounds like fun, where do we sign up? Oh that’s right.. links provided below! The game will be on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
