EA has revealed its first major game for 2013, confirming that there will be a Crysis 3 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Described by EA as giving gamers “the premier sandbox shooter experience of 2013”, it suggests that it could be more like the first game in the series. We’ve got screenshots, and you can see them after the jump.
Crysis 3 sees Prophet returning to New York, only to find it encased in a ‘Nanodome’ by the Cell Corporation. As well, both human and alien enemies from Crysis 2 will make an appearance in the game.
Crytek, the developers of the game, have also started pre-orders for the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition, which will give them extra goodies in multiplayer to “become the ultimate hunter”, plus early access to the new signature bow and its attachments and the Hunter Nanosuit. Some retailers will also other unlocks:
