ALIENS SHOOT 'EM UP Crysis 3 has emerged from darkness and will be on sale next year.
The game that asks you to blast the heck out of aliens is a popular one, and the sequel has been long anticipated. Depending on how you look at it you do not have much longer to wait, as it will be out next year.
"The hunted becomes the hunter! Electronic Arts and award-winning developer Crytek today announced Crysis 3, the premier sandbox shooter experience of 2013," says an excited release.
"Powered by Crytek's proprietary Cryengine, Crysis 3 advances the state of the art with unparalleled visuals and dynamic shooter gameplay."
The game sees the return of Prophet and a visit to a New York that has been covered with a bubble dome, or Nanodome, and turned into an urban rainforest. This is called the New York Liberty Dome and it does not sound like a very nice place to be.
Fortunately Prophet, to whom the new New York is a bit of a surprise, has an enhanced Nanosuit and a new bow weapon. He's also well versed in killing things from space.
"Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love," said Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek.
"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."
If you order the game early, in this case very early, you can get bonus content, like a special bow, an in-game shotgun and fresh multiplayer weapons.
EA said that the game will be released on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PCs, with the upcoming Wii U being an obvious outsider. µ
