Crysis 3 trailer shows off compound bow

“But will it run Crysis?” is one of the PC enthusiast scene’s better contributions to the world of Internet memes. The latest trailer for Crysis 3 might inspire another question: can you kill it with a compound bow? The second episode in Crytek’s The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3 teaser videos takes a closer look at the game’s most intriguing new weapon. Check it out:

The video sticks to a single environment but provides plenty of gameplay footage. And, yes, there comes a time when the compound bow is traded for something a little more potent.

While the accompanying narration is overly dramatic, the graphics look gorgeous. The vegetation is partifularly convincing, and it’s something that developer Crytek has always done well. I’m getting a Predator meets Life After People vibe, and I like it. This may be the first Crysis game I really get into since the original.

    I have not yet played this game. Nor even bought it.

    Already I want my money back!

    I’m looking for something much more engaging. Am I expecting too much from game makers?

    Indeego cliche’d comment #3: Aliens are very very dull enemies. There is a certain disconnect when I’m killing creatures from another planet. Just gets old fast.

    But this game looks sweet/pretty.

    “partifularly” – a typo there, Cyril 🙂

    I sincerely hope Crytek has more up their sleeves than lens flare and elephant grass…

    Hopefully they’ll throw some varied terrain in there too – I imagine bow-sniping from a hill nearby would be awesome.

    I just can’t get over the fact that Crytek are still showing PC gameplay footage that is clearly being tested with a gamepad.

    For a second I thought I had a déjà vu.

    As cool as the compound bow looks, I couldn’t help but think..

    “So an arrow will one shot those aliens, but multiple bullets from a fully automatic machine gun will only make it mad?”

      Maybe they are VERY allergic to arrows.

      You would probably lose a lot of gamers if they had to actually track and stalk a wounded alien for a mile or two after each arrow shot. And if you thought dressing and packing out a deer was a bitch, imagine having to do that for the aliens!

      They appear to be Rambo arrow tips.

      Did you not notice that the arrows were exploding?

        • Phishy714
        • 7 years ago

        SOME were exploding, sure. He shot a few at some trucks or whatever that made fires go everywhere, however they definitely were not exploding in the sense that some of the others did – ESPECIALLY that very last one.

      I used to be an invading alien, then I took an arrow in the knee?

      Maybe they’re allergic to wood?

      they are corrosive, explosive arrows. Corrodes throught the armor in a milisecond and then explodes.

        How convenient.
