‘Crysis 3’ is set to take gamers to a whole new level of experience

EA Sports
‘Crysis 3’ takes place 24 years after the events of the previous game. The game also allows players to immerse into stories where players are challenged to make decisions pertaining to the game.

Hoping to continue tradition of visually stunning and thrilling action games, Crytek recently released the long awaited “Crysis 3” on Feb. 19.

Full of intensity and out-of-this-world graphics, Crytek promises a fun ride on its greatest Crysis yet.

Taking place 24 years after the events of the second game, players will once again be able to control Prophet, always equipped with his advanced nanosuit and take on what remains of New York after it is encased in Nanodome by series villain, the C.E.L.L. corporation.

As always, this version of Crysis has been built to immerse players as the story continues, and challenges them to make decisions.

These choices range from how they tackle the game, to how they choose to upgrade and outfit their suit for either stealth or combat.

What seemed to grab the most attention at its last showing in the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, was the inclusion of a compact bow.

Event goers were treated to a first person shooter game that seemed to be missing the streams of bullets that other hits, such as Call of Duty or Halo, depended on.

Skeptical at first, fans’ expectations were blown away when they saw arrows flying and taking down soldiers and helicopters. Since then, fans have been waiting for a chance to string up an arrow, and send it sailing.

“It’s awesome. It puts you in a place that I’m sure a lot of hunters are put in, and for a while you are immersed in the whole environment,” architect major Jaime Reyes said.

To separate itself from other shooters, Crytek has prided itself on making a game that is as digitally advanced as possible by building a system engine from scratch, which is entitled the CryEngine3.

This game engine’s presents top of the line graphics on all consoles.

“CryENGINE is known for uncompromising visual fidelity; handling even the most complex scenes at a steady frame-rate,” Crytek said on its engine’s website.

“Crysis 3” is available for purchase on all systems and computers, while the CryEngine3 is available for free, non-commercial use at www.mycryengine.com
