Yes, there's another Crysis game on the way. Crytek already teased the eye candy and new multiplayer modes earlier this year. Now, the studio has posted a fresh trailer that shows an eight-minute glimpse of the single-player campaign. If you're at work or around impressionable youngsters, be warned: the trailer is laden with English-accented profanity.
Here's the Cliff's Notes version of what goes down, if you're too lazy to sit through all eight minutes of it:
The unnatural power of the Nanodome has transformed the train yards of New York City into a grassland teeming with wild vegetation & opposing CELL artillery. Prophet and Psycho must venture through the heavily guarded Field to meet up with the rebel insurgency. Prophet's use of the Nanosuit and alien weapons will be critical to to get through the sandbox of the Fields level.
Crytek has always done lush, natural environments very well, but Crysis 3's post-apocalyptic twist gives it a much more distinctive vibe, I think. I'm getting flashbacks of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Half-Life 2, and they're definitely not unwelcome. The gameplay looks fun, too. It's nice seeing a shooter where you have some control of the environment instead of being stuck on a predefined path between cut scenes.
Crysis 3 is due out next spring on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
