Further to the Origin leak last week, EA have now gone ahead and officially announced Crysis 3 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. The game is currently expected to arrive in spring 2013.
In Crysis 3, Prophet returns to New York in the year 2047 only to find that the city has been encased in a dome and now resembles a rain forest. This is where the all the action in the game will take place. The evil Cell Corporation is behind the so-called “nanodome” and while the citizens of New York were told it was erected to protect them, it is in fact a ploy by Cell Corp to grab as much land and technology as they can in their quest for global domination.
Prophet is armed with a host of cool weapons in the game. Most important is his bow though, which you can see above. Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek, had the following to say about Crysis 3
Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love. 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.
