The first Crysis game had you fighting North Koreans, then it Crysis 2, Crytek had you fighting the American paramilitary corportation C.E.L.L, and now you’re going to still be in New York City in Crysis 3, however the entire city has been encased inside of Cell Corporation’s Nanodome, which turns NYC into an urban jungle, with seven distinct environments (known as the Seven Wonders). Apparently this setup is going to push the very boundaries of the Nanosuit and is to protect the city from the alien Ceph, however it’s simply the company’s conquest of world domination in the year of 2047. Oh, and the game runs on the fantastic and new CryENGINE 3.
Which is why you see our Nanosuit supersoldier (presumably Prophet) using a bow and arrow, yet with the Scarab automatic assault rifle on his back. Very, very cool indeed. There are also three different pre-order bonuses that can be had depending on which retailer players order Crysis 3 from. Personally, I can hardly wait.
