Following its Q1 2013 Fiscal Reports, EA has also announced some nice figures for two of its highly anticipated games. According to the company, Q4, pre-sells on its sci-fi horror franchise Dead Space 3 are tracking almost five-times higher than Dead Space 2 in the same timeframe in 2010. The company believes the new co-op gameplay feature is attracting a lot of attention and a broader audience.
Dead Space 3 has been criticized by a lot of gamers and ironically, it seems like a strong title for EA. And we are a bit worried about EA’s beliefs on the game’s co-op feature.
Crysis 3 is a highly anticipated title they are publishing in partnership with Crytek in Frankfurt and pre-orders are roughly three-times what they were for Crysis 2, at this time in 2010.
Crysis 3 is powered by Crytek’s CryEngine 3 and advances the state of the art with unparalleled visuals and dynamic shooter gameplay. Players take on the role of ‘Prophet’ as he returns to New York, only to discover that the city has been encased in a Nanodome created by the corrupt Cell Corporation. The New York City Liberty Dome is a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. Within the Liberty Dome, seven distinct and treacherous environments become known as the Seven Wonders. This dangerous new world demands advanced weapons and tactics. Prophet will utilize a lethal composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit and devastating alien tech to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.
Dead Space 3 is currently planned for a February 2013 release, whereas Crysis 3 is scheduled for a Spring 2013 release!
