Today is a good day for Crysis fans because EA has officially unveiled the latest installment to their futuristic FPS (first person shooter) series. Besides the overall story, the impressive looking box art (see above) and pre-order bonuses have also been revealed.
Crysis 3 does revolve around the main character, 'Prophet', and follows his return to a very different New York City in the year 2047.
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.
Pre-order bonuses have also been revealed:
- Stalker Pack – Includes the base game, all 'Hunter Edition' content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: for players who like to stalk their prey from the shadows the 'Stalker Pack' provides early multiplayer access to the deadly semi-auto Jackal shotgun. This powerful, close-range shotgun comes with a unique silencer attachment, custom weapon skin and two exclusive themed in-game dog tags.
- Overkill Pack – Includes the base game, all 'Hunter Edition' content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the 'Overkill Pack' features early multiplayer access to the Typhoon assault weapon and skin. Spewing 500 rounds a second, the Typhoon gives players the ability to go guns blazing to take back the Liberty Dome. Also included are two exclusive Overkill themed in-game dog tags.
- Predator Pack – Includes the base game, all the 'Hunter Edition' content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the 'Predator Pack' delivers early multiplayer access to the Feline submachine gun and exclusive camo. With an extremely fast rate of fire and a 60 round magazine the Feline is highly effective and deadly, at short range.
Crysis 3 will, of course, be powered by the CryENGINE technology and is set to be released in Spring 2013 for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
