Crysis 3 officially announced by EA

As promised, EA and Crytek have officially announced Crysis 3 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. The game will return the action to New York City in early 2013 promising, “the hunted becomes the hunter!”

Set 25 years after Crysis 2, the steel and concrete that make up the urban jungle of New York City have given way to an actual jungle courtesy of a “nanodome” that includes “overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers.” Crytek is calling this new New York City the Seven Wonders because players will visit seven unique game environments during their quest. Series protagonist Prophet also returns, this time with new weaponry (including the lethal composite bow pictured above) and an enhanced nanosuit to hunt down the alien invaders:

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.

Players who pre-order Crysis 3 will receive the “Hunter Edition” limited edition at no extra charge. The Hunter Edition includes exclusive weapons and character skins as well as a multiplayer XP boost. Several retailer-specific pre-order bonus packs will also offer additional weaponry on top of the Hunter Edition package.

Crytek’s CEO, Cevat Yerli said, “We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.”
