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.

Optimized for PC?

I think the biggest problem I had with Crysis 2 was that they made it for console first and then ported it to PC, which dumbed down the graphics.

BF3 was made for PC and then ported to the less graphics capable console systems making it a much better game on all systems. But if Crysis 3 is made for console first then no matter what we do, no matter how tough our systems are, it will look just the same as the next guy.

irrelevant - no game devs make anything for pc users in mind these days.

if they did then a console port would be impossible (as a top of the line pc rig redering at 1080p with no anti aliasing etc. is lightyears ahead of the 360/ps3).

pretty soon a crappy entry level intel laptop with integrated graphics will be able to outperform the consoles - at that point the game devs might start developing for pc users like they used to up till the early part of the last decade.
