As hinted at over the past week, Crytek and EA have finally announced the third chapter in the Crysis trilogy, Crysis 3. It’s locked for launch in the spring of 2013 for PC (via Origin), Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
Powered by the company’s ever-impressive proprietary tech, CryEngine 3, Crysis 3 grounds itself in jungle-covered New York City, with players exploring the game as prophet from the previous games. The city itself has been encased in a giant dome, and is overgrown with trees and wildlife – both good and bad.
There are seven main themes for you to explore in New York, known as the “Seven Wonders”. As you make your way through the sandbox that is the Big Apple, you’ll seek to uncover the truth behind the dome and its purpose – using “kick ass future weaponry”, I might add. This includes an all new compound bow, which has been teased numerously over the past few days.
More details and images are available on the Crysis website for your viewing pleasure.
Also, a new trailer is set to launch in just under a week, so don’t jet away from your computer just yet. Unless it’s to pre-order, in which case, you’re excused.
