Electronic Arts and Crytek today announced that fans who pre-order Crysis 3 will receive a digital download copy of the original Crysis game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PC. Crysis is by far – at least in our opinion – the best part of the franchise, so this is good news for all gamers who have not picked it up yet. In Crysis, players are outfitted with the series signature Nanosuit and an arsenal of fully customisable weapons that provide a wide array of options not only for the games story missions but also every single objective and individual encounter.
In addition, those that pre-order Crysis 3 will receive the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition, giving fans a head start in multiplayer with immediate access to the powerful new Predator bow and the Hunter Nanosuit module and more.
Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek said:
“The release of Crysis in 2007 was truly a watershed moment for first-person shooters and raised the bar on cutting-edge visuals and gameplay and we could not be more thrilled to include the original game as a pre-order bonus. Building upon the framework laid by the previous games, Crysis 3 will deliver an action-packed experience that encourages players to assess, adapt and attack the Seven Wonders of the New York City Liberty Dome and challenges that stand in their way.”
Powered by Crytek’s proprietary CryENGINE, Crysis 3 advances the state of the art with unparalleled visuals and dynamic shooter gameplay. According to its press release, 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.
The Crysis 3 Hunter Edition gives players tools to become the ultimate hunter in multiplayer with early access to the new signature Predator bow and its attachments plus the Hunter Nanosuit module, which adds additional power and functionality to the super-suit. Gamers who pre-order the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition will also have a head start when playing online with a bonus XP boost up to level 5, a unique Predator bow skin and three exclusive dog tags to hunt in style. The Crysis 3 Hunter Edition is available on Origin.com and other participating retailers for £39.99 RRP.
Crysis 3 will be available in February of 2013 for the X360, PS3 and PC.
