EA has finally announced Crysis 3! While this isn’t all too surprising, the publisher has also revealed that the game will be the “First Blockbuster Shooter of 2013,” and they even revealed the pre-order bonuses that players can use for the game’s multiplayer.
People who pre-order the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition will get early access to the new Crysis 3 “Signature Bow,” experience boost in multiplayer up to level 5, a unique bow skin, three exclusive dogtags and “Hunter” Nanosuit module which will give “additional power and functionality.”
Oh, and there’s going to be retailer-specific pre-order items too! Although these are only early unlocks and not exclusive content per se…It’s also worth mentioning that which retailer gets what wasn’t mentioned, either.
•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 second, 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.
Aside from the mulitplayer info, Crytek has also revealed details regarding the game’s single-player campaign.
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.
Oh, and you can’t have an official announcement for a game without a press statement, right? Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek had this to say.
