Electronic Arts and Crytek have officially announced Crysis 3, the much-anticipated third instalment of the nanosuit-donning first-person shooter.

 
The story involves the protagonist Prophet who returns to New York City in 2047, but finds that it has been encased in a Nanodome developed by the Cell Corporation, proposed as a means of protecting the citizens from alien attack, but really a method to expand Cell's control in its hunt for world domination.
 
Players who missed the setting of the first game will be pleased to hear that while the game is set in New York City, it's not quite the same city environment of the second game. The Liberty Dome, which players are tasked with taking back, is, according to Crytek, “a veritable urbain rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers.” It looks like the developer is delivering the best of both worlds for players.
 
As gamers explore the seven distinct environments of the Liberty Dome, known as the Seven Wonders, they will be forced to fight both human enemies and alien Ceph. An enhanced Nanosuit and new weapons, including a composite bow, will help players win the battle.

“Crysis 3 is a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek. “Leveraging the latest CryENGINE technology, we’re able to deliver seven unique themes that offer stunning and visually loaded gameplay experiences. We cannot wait until people get their hands on the game.”
 
The special Hunter Edition of Crysis 3 can be pre-ordered today from Origin and certain retailers for $59.99. It comes with the base game, early access to the new signature bow and its attachments,  and the Hunter Nanosuit module for additional suit power and functionality. Those who pre-order will get early access, a five-level bonus XP boost, a unique bow skin and three exclusive dog tags.
 
Some retailers will also be offering special versions of the Hunter Edition that include some additional early multiplayer unlocks. The Stalker Pack allows early multiplayer access to the semi-auto Jackal shotgun, which comes with a silencer. The Overkill Pack provides early multiplayer access to the Typhoon assault weapon, which can fire 500 rounds a second. The Predator Pack provides early multiplayer access to the Feline submachine gun with a 60 round magazine. All three come with custom skins and exclusive in-game dog tags. 
 
The game will launch in Spring of 2013 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms.
