Crysis 3 Confirmed

Right on schedule, EA is officially lifting the veil off of its ambitious new entry in the heralded Crysis franchise.

Developed by Crytek, Crysis 3 is poised to become one of the biggest PC shooter games of 2013, and is expected to be a technological marvel. Crytek built its own engine, called CryENGINE, to power the game.

The experience will revolve around a character named "Prophet" who find himself in a futuristic, desecrated New York City. While exploring all that has happened to the city, players will need to hone their skills and become the best hunter on the planet.

"Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love," Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said in a statement.

"Leveraging the latest CryENGINE technology, we’re able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game," Yerli continued.

While EA's press release didn't mention a release date, it did confirm that there will be a Crysis 3 Hunter Edition available for around $60.

And in what is just another entry in the story of digital distribution being everything these days, the special edition game doesn't even come with any tangible content. It gives players a special Nanosuit module, an XP bonus feature, and exclusive customization options.

EA has also teamed up with various stores and retailers throughout the country. Customers who pre-order the game from a select retailer will also have the ability to score some free in-game content.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
