Today, Crytek and EA have announced a pre-order deal for advancing your payment to the pair for the third game in the Crysis series. Crysis 3 is scheduled for release in February 2013, with pre-orders netting a download of the first Crysis game on PSN. Have you pre-ordered Crysis 3 yet?
Throughout Gamescom week our inbox gets barraged by publishers pushing trailers, but we can’t complain. We love them, and we know you do too.
That’s why we decided to collect our favourites and put them together in an article. It turned out we couldn’t narrow them down to 10, so we thought we might as well give you 37. That’s a lot of viewing pleasure.
Not to be upstaged by Sony and Ubisoft, Electronic Arts has also had a strong showing at this year’s E3, as the likes of Dead Space 3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Crysis 3 are sure to excite gamers.
Our only complaint is that all of the games shown were sequels to existing franchises. Everyone loves a good sequel, but it would have been nice to see EA show off some new interlectual property. Well, that or Mirror’s Edge 2.
But we digress; on with the trailers…
EA has released a batch of new screens for Crysis 3 featuring the nanosuit sporting Prophet in a variety of defiant poses, many of which with his new crossbow. There are also a few pieces of concept art that showcase the deterioration of New York City into a jungle swampland.
EA and Crytek have unveiled the full gameplay trailer for Crysis 3 that was teased last week. Crysis veteran Prophet returns to New York City to find that it has become a vast jungle where the Ceph continue to run rampant. Armed with a new compound bow, it’s up to him to take back the city.
Our first glimpse of Prophet and Crysis 3 comes by way of a very short teaser trailer. Although it clocks in under 20 seconds, developer, Crytek was kind enough to include some gameplay footage.
This is what it looks like when New York City becomes a vibrant rain forest.
Crysis 3 was accidentally revealed last week by a premature posting on EA’s own Origin website, hinting at a return to an urban setting and a new crossbow weapon. Today, EA has officially announced the game along with a slew of details including a premium Hunter Edition, pre-order bonuses, and a spring 2013 release date.
Thus far, 2011 has been a gilded year for Crytek. The haloed Crysis series made its mark on the console market in March with the much lauded Crysis 2.
Given the warm reception Crysis 2 received, Crytek have decided to bring console gamers full circle with the offering of the original Crysis via PSN download next month. If these screenshots are any indication the game will maintain the renowned presentation quality established by Crysis four years prior.
Yes, that’s right; back by popular demand is PS3 Attitude’s PlayTime, in which we reveal what we’ve been up to for the past month. From blockbuster titles to indie games, we’ve been tracking exactly what we’ve been playing throughout March because, believe it or not, we do play games as well as write about them. There’s been a huge amount of highly anticipated games released in the last few weeks, and we’ve played a fair few of them, so let’s get started.
BE STRONG. BE FAST. BE INVISIBLE. BE THE WEAPON”. That’s EA’s slogan for Crysis 2, to prepare us for this suped-up, sci-fi first-person shooter. It wouldn’t sound out of place in an eighties action flick, but, then again, neither would Crysis 2.
We’re not talking about its graphics, because they’re splendid and would certainly look completely out of place; we’re referring to its unashamedly macho, action spirit. Crysis 2 belongs in an era which celebrates the overpowered guy, the guy who can single-handedly take down an army in the middle of New York without shedding a sentimental tear.
In case you hadn’t heard Crysis 2 is dropping this week. The fact that the original still remains as a high water mark for graphics capability a whole 3 years after its release date is enough reason to get excited about the sequel.
If you need something a little more to get yourself amped for the game this trailer will no doubt help. Just watch it already, it’s awesome.
By setting a first-person shooter in the future, you have licence to be creative with your game’s weapons and gadgets. We’re surprised more developers don’t take full advantage of this; so many seem content with simply tweaking the design of your everyday assault rifle. Clearly, the team at Crytek is made from more ambitious stock. Sure, shotguns and assault rifles are both present, but Crysis 2 also has nanosuits, electrostatic cables and even hologram decoys. Now that’s more like it.
Quick question: invisibility or flight? Take some time to mull it over.
Hopefully you chose invisibility (let’s be smart about this jet packs already exist) because by the look of this trailer you’ll be able to achieve just that in Crysis 2.
The first-person shooter genre is one of the most dominant of this generation. The success of Call of Duty alone is staggering. Back in late December, Activision announced that Black Ops had surpassed $1bn in sales and that over 600m hours had been logged playing the game. The game is still topping the charts today. Call of Duty isn’t the only franchise flying the flag for first-person shooters either; there is also much fanfare for Killzone, Battlefield, Medal of Honor and Resistance, to name just a few of the big hitters.
War is a part of who we are. Humans have been fighting since the dawn of time.
The unfortunate reality is that despite our wealth of resources and greater understanding of those around us war is just as if not more prevalent in societies around the globe today as it was in the past.
In this age one often wonders why we fight? Aliens. That’s why.
Well then, dear PS3 lovers… it will soon be the Year of the Rabbit, the happiest of all the Chinese zodiac signs.
In Chinese astrology the Rabbit is considered to be happy and popular. Rabbits are known for their artistic talent and good taste. You might say there are certain attributes of the Rabbit that foretell of a great year for Sony’s flagship console.
So, is that the case? Or will 2011 be more a ‘dog of a year’ than a metaphorical ‘lucky rabbit’s foot’?
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
If you are one of the many that are planning on picking up Crysis 2 when it lands in March, you may want to check out this new trailer released by Crytek. Come inside to have a look.
More news and info keeps pouring in from Gamescom, this time in the form of a live stage demo of the Crysis 2 multiplayer mode.
