All Articles: Crysis 3
Like a crazy bearded man shouting in an airport parking lot, Crytek has announced that they’re going back to the island in this June’s new downloadable expansion for Crysis 3: The Lost Island.
Taking place on a small island in the Philippines, the same locale from the original Crysis, The Lost Island DLC will add four new multiplayer maps (“Ascent,” “Coastline,” “Creek,” and “Crossings”), two new weapons (Claw and Rhino), and two new game modes (Possession and Frenzy.
“The gameplay in the Crysis series has always been deeply connected to the unique environments in which the action takes place,” said Crytek’s CEO, Cevat Yerli. “By transporting players out of the Liberty Dome and into the Lost Island setting, we’re not only returning to Crysis’ spiritual roots, but also introducing fresh ways to play that provide Crysis 3 fans with genuinely game-changing new tactical options, game modes and weapons.”
Crysis 3: The Lost Island has been priced at $14.99 (1200 Microsoft Points) and will be available to download on June 4.
This week’s PlayStation Store update was a bit late on the upload, but I suppose Sony can be forgiven. After all, tomorrow is a big day for the consolemaker.
The big new addition in today’s update is definitely Crysis 3. Crytek’s first person shooter series returns to the PS3 with a new locale (Rainforest New York City!) and a wild new weapon (The Predator Bow!). It can yours for the standard new game price of $59.99.
Also available this week is the first installment in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet. The “1987 Pack” includes 1943: Battle of Midway, Black Dragon, and Avengers.
Finally, portable players will be happy to know that the Vita game Patapon 3 and two PSP games, Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi and Generation of Chaos: Pandora’s Reflection, are available to download now.
A complete list of this week’s new games can be found after the break and a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons (including Skyrim‘s “Hearthfire” content) can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
It’s another big week for the PlayStation Store as Sony and Electronic Arts have added a Crysis 3 open beta to the PSN. The beta is available to download for free by all PS3 owners from now until February 12. The digital download version can also now be pre-ordered through the PS Store, so you can be sure you’ve got it first thing on February 19.
Also available this week is Square Enix’s Hitman HD Trilogy. The up-rezzed versions of Agent 47’s second, third, and fourth games are available as separate PSN downloads or as one combined bundle.
Going back in time a bit, this week also sees the addition of a trio of games that were previously available as disc-only releases including Platinum’s Bayonetta, Konami’s Zone of the Enders HD Collection, and Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (that one’s a PS2 Classic).
There’s even that’s new to the PlayStation Store this week. You can read all about them after the break. And don’t forget to visit the PlayStation Blog for a list of this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)

Are you looking forward to next February’s release of Crysis 3? But are you feeling a little lost since you never played the original Crysis? Well, good news! EA has announced that if you pre-order Crysis 3, you’ll receive a download voucher that can be exchanged for a digital copy of Crysis on the PC, PS3, or Xbox 360.
“The release of Crysis in 2007 was truly a watershed moment for first-person shooters and raised the bar on cutting-edge visuals and gameplay and we could not be more thrilled to include the original game as a pre-order bonus,” said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. “Building upon the framework laid by the previous games, Crysis 3 offers unparalleled tactical freedom as players experience New York City’s Seven Wonders and adapt to the truly unique challenges they present. By blending the best elements of the series so far, we’ve created an action experience that we believe will blow fans away.”
If you are interested in pre-ordering Crysis 3, EA also wants to remind you that you’ll receive the Hunter’s Edition, which will include access to the Predator Bow and the Hunter Nanosuit module.
