Following lasts weeks mishap that put Crysis 3 up on EA Origin store, Electronic Arts has decided to release information on the Crysis 3 earlier than expected. EA has announced that Crysis 3 will drop in Spring 2013 and will take place in New York City.
Prophet makes his return as the main character for Crysis 3 and although you'll be playing in New York City, things have changed. There is a bubble or Nanodome enclosing the city thanks to the Cell Corporation which cause the city to transform into an urban jungle (think a mix of Crysis 1 & 2). Known as the Seven Wonders, NYC has become an area with seven distinct environments all waiting to test the limits of Prophet and the nano-suit. EA has described the gameplay as Sandbox making it similar to the first Crysis.
Preorders for the game have already gone up with EA offering a free upgrade to the Hunter Edition for those who preorder. The Hunter Edition includes the following:
- Early access to the new signature Crysis 3 bow, bow attachment, and "Hunter" Nano-suit module for use in Crysis 3 Multiplayer.
