Newsbrief: Electronic Arts and Crytek have officially announced Crysis 3, the next installment in the first-person shooter franchise, due to be released in spring 2013 for PC via Origin, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Once again powered by Crytek's proprietary CryEngine, the latest in the series returns to New York, with players taking on the role of Prophet. The city has been encased in a large dome, and is now overgrown with trees and rainforest wildlife.
Crytek's CEO Cevat Yerli explained that the studio aims to deliver a mix of sandbox style gameplay with first-person combat. The game will feature seven environmental themes, as players aim to uncover the truth behind the dome's "Seven Wonders."
