If you recall the ending in Crysis 2, Alcatraz managed to turn the central alien spire against the Ceph, to deter a possible nuclear strike, which ultimately resulted in total annhilation of the aliens in New York. As Alcatraz is knocked down due to the heavy outflow of energy from his suit, he manages to communicate with the ‘real’ Prophet and gets to know that though the mission in New York has been accomplished, there is more to do as the Ceph had ancient installments all around the world. As the nanosuit reboots, he gets a broadcast from Karl Ernst Rasch asking Alcatraz for his name where he answered boldly, ” They call me Prophet “. That was actually the first time he spoke.
Just gave you a little recap of Crysis 2 and the ending did want me to look forward to the next installment and finally, Crytek’s CEO, Cevat Yerli, spoke about the details of the upcoming Crysis 3 due on 2013.
The story line is set in 2047, where Prophet returns to New York for revenge only to find that it has been wrapped in a Nanodome formed by the corrupt Cell Corp. By seeing the pictures posted in their official site, the environment is no doubt full of greenery. As Crytek puts it, ” veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers ” There are seven different environments which is known as the seven wonders comprising of different settings. And the weapons seems to take Crysis back to the old age using a “bow”. According to Crytek, this ”lethal composite bow’ falls under the advanced weapons required to kill the aliens. Referring to the picture above, the Cephs are definitely back but with Prophet’s enhanced nanosuit and advanced weapons, the hunters will become the hunted.
I am actually looking forward to see the new hitech weapons to be used here . The bow seems to be the newly added weapon but I wonder if its more effective than the SCAR. And in terms of graphics, it seems to be similar to Crysis 2. There will be lots of questions and I am pretty sure all our queries will be eventually answered.
