Crysis 3 up for pre-order

Of all the game franchises that EA has under its belt, Crysis is often a fan favorite. Fans of the franchise have been waiting to hear official details on the next installment called Crysis 3 and the details were revealed today. EA promises unparalleled visuals and a dynamic shooter game play that we all know and love from the franchise going back to the first installment.
 
The player will play as Prophet as he returns to New York to discover that the city is now encased in a Nanodome created by Cell Corporation. This Nanodome has seven different environments that are known as the Seven Wonders including an urban rain forest and more.
 
“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 game play experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.”
 
The game is set in 2047 as Prophet sets off on a revenge mission after he discovers the truth behind the motives for building the quarantined Nanodomes. The game will get new weapons such as a composite bow, an improved Nanosuit, and new alien technology.
 
Fans of the game can pre-order the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition of the game to get early access to the signature bow and special attachments along with the special Hunter Nanosuit module giving additional power and functionality. Those that pre-order will also get a bonus XP boost up to level five in multiplayer. The pre-order version is on Origin.com right now for $59.95.

 
Other select retailers are offering different special pre-order deals including the Stalker Pack offering early access to a semi automatic shotgun with a silencer. The Overkill Pack adds early multiple for access to the typhoon assault weapon and more. The Predator Pack offers early access to the Feline submachine gun.
 
It's not clear which retailers will be selling those three additional special pre-order packs.

Got to agree with you on this: I enjoyed Crysis even tho it presented no real challenges, the suit made you far too powerful imo.

The graphics were awesome and the physics worked very well but the game felt bland for the most part. Call me strange but I much preferred their original game Far Cry. Same goes for Halflife 1&2 for me the original was far superior in terms of gameplay and fun factor simply because it was actually difficult to beat and had some imagination put into the levels and environments.

P.s tho I must admit I did have a bit of a down on HL2 at the time as it was about a year late and failed to deliver most of the features that were promised.

e.g Non scripted A.I, destructible environments, intelligent friendly NPC's and whatever happened to the blue tentacle monster that showed up in the preview videos?

I'm not saying either game was bad just not what the were/are cracked up to be.
