As promised, EA and Crytek have today formalized Crysis 3. Due out next Spring for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the game will throw players back into NYC, albeit a notably changed one, as Prophet hellbent on revenge.
Seven “distinct and treacherous environments,” known as the Seven Wonders — locales created thanks to the city being encased in a Nanodome — is where the action will take place. Expect an “urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers.”
A mix between the first and second games then, indeed.
Multiplayer will once more be a part of the package as well, with EA already dishing out bonuses for those who pre-order.
The Hunter Edition, which will retail for the price of the standard version but in limited amounts, will offer the bow plus its attachments and an extra skin, a Hunter module for the Nanosuit, XP boost up to level 5, and three exclusive dog tags.
Some retailers are also offering 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.
