It only feels like yesterday that Crysis 2 was just released. While not as engaging as its former, I had a great time with it, which is why I’m totally looking forward to heading back into the nano-suit. The game is set in the year 2047, and players will be revisiting the role of Prophet who is seeking revenge against the Cell Corporation.

“Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love,” said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. “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.”

The game currently has pre-order bonuses from select retailers and anyone who pre-orders now will receive the Hunter Edition, which gives early access to the composite bow and Hunter module along with an XP boost in multiplexer and 3 exclusive dog-tags. Full information on select retailers pre-orders are found below:

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.

With an extremely fast rate of fire and a 60 round magazine the Feline is highly effective and deadly, at short range.

The game is due out in Spring 2013 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Hopefully, this time around, PC users will not have to wait to see the full potential of the game engine.
