Gamers are also devouring YouTube videos of Prophet, the Nanosuit and the 7 Wonders of the New York Liberty Dome, with more than 16 million video views on the official Crysis YouTube channel.
Developed by Crytek and powered by CryENGINE technology, Crysis 3 is the next installment in the Crysis franchise. The series is known for its spectacular visuals, dynamic, open gameplay and its signature Nanosuit that grants players unique powers to assess, adapt and attack in any situation. In Crysis 3, players return to the fight as Prophet on his quest to save mankind. Set in New York, the city has been encased in a Nanodome that has turned this once thriving metropolis into a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. Seven distinct and treacherous environments become known as the 7 Wonders. This dangerous new world demands advanced weapons and strategies, including the enhanced Nanosuit which provides players a tactical advantage. In addition to the powerful Nanosuit, players wield the devastating Predator bow and cutting-edge alien weaponry to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.
Crysis 3 will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC via Origin on February 22nd in South Africa. Check out the official site here and for the latest news visit www.facebook.com/crysis or follow the team on Twitter at www.twitter.com/crysis.
