and Wield Advanced Alien Weaponry in the Ultimate Sandbox Shooter
Pre-order the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition for Early Access to the New
Crysis 3 Signature Bow and XP Boost in Multiplayer*
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
The hunted becomes the hunter! Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) and
award-winning developer Crytek GmbH, today announced Crysis® 3, the
premier sandbox shooter experience of 2013. Powered by Crytek's
proprietary CryENGINE®, Crysis 3 advances the state of the art
with unparalleled visuals and dynamic shooter gameplay. 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 utilize a lethal
composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit and devastating alien tech to become
the deadliest hunter on the planet.
"Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat
and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love," said
Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. "Leveraging the latest
CryENGINE technology, we're able to deliver seven unique themes that
offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait
until people get their hands on the game."
Set in 2047, Prophet is on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth
behind Cell Corporation's motives for building the quarantined
Nanodomes. The citizens were told that the giant citywide structures
were resurrected to protect the population and to cleanse these
metropolises of the remnants of Ceph forces. In reality, the Nanodomes
are CELL's covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest
for global domination. With Alien Ceph lurking around every corner and
human enemies on the attack, nobody is safe in the path of vengeance.
Everyone is a target in Prophet's quest for retribution.
Crytek also announced that players who are ready to start the hunt can
