Electronic Arts announced this morning that Crysis 3
, which leaked into existence last week
on the publisher's Origin service, will arrive in the spring of 2013. The "sandbox shooter" will be set in 2047, inside a rainforest created by New York City being under a dome. This "Liberty Dome" will have "seven distinct and treacherous environments." The narrative will feature your standard revenge scenario with corporate conspiracy and back-stabbing going on.
In case you can't resist a company earning interest on your money for a year, Crysis 3
is available now for pre-order. The Crysis 3 Hunter Edition
includes the Hunter
Nanosuit module and a bonus XP boost up to level 5 in the game's multiplayer -- that we know nothing about. It's available on Origin.com and participating retailers (which have other varied bonuses) for $59.99. Think of it as corporate Kickstarter.
