Crytek announced Crysis 3, which claims to be the first blockbuster shooter of 2013 and the premier sandbox shooter on 2013. As with other Crytek games Crysis 3 will run on the CryENGINE which will give Crysis 3 unmatched graphics and dynamic shooter gameplay. Crysis 3 takes the player back to New York which has been enclosed inside a Nanodome which was created by the evil corporation, Cell Corporation. Crytek describes the New York City Liberty Dome as “a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers”. Within said dome are seven different environments, the Seven Wonders. These dangerous environments call for advanced weapons and tactics. The player controlling Prophet will use a bow, an advanced Nanosuit and alien tech in order to become the best hunter on the planet.
Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek said “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.”
Crysis 3 takes place in 2047, where you take control of Prophet who is on a mission to uncover the truth behind Cell Corporation’s building of the Nanodome. The citizens of New York were told that this dome would protect the inhabitants and would get rid of the remaining Ceph forces. When in reality this is just a step in Cell Corporation’s plan for world domination. Alien Ceph are around every corner and humans on the attack, no one is safe from Prophet and his path of revenge.
