As expected, EA announced a new installment in the Crysis series earlier today. Crysis 3, once again developed by German developer Crytech, is set for a launch in Spring 2013 on PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. More details are available after the jump.
Similar to the second installment, Crysis 3 will be set in New York City. However, the area is now encased in a “nanodome” that seals the city off from the outside world. As a result, the city has literally turned into a jungle with seven distinct environments.
Players will have access to a compound bow, and once again face off against both human CELL operatives and alien invaders known as the Ceph.
EA has also announced the Hunter Edition for the game, which includes early access to the Bow and the Hunter Nanosuit module for multiplayer, three exclusive dogtags, an XP head-start, and a unique skin for the Bow. In addition to this edition, three pre-order bonusses have been revealed, though there is no information available at this as to which retailers will be associated with which pre-order bonus.
- 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 minute, 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.
