A new trailer for Crysis 3 was released today and this time it takes us to the ‘Swamps’ level which is described as a high point for the bow. The dark environment should prove the perfect place to take advantage of the nanosuits stealth abilities too.


Crytek Say Crysis Could Switch Genres In The Future

Crysis producer, Michael Elliot, recently said in an interview that Crysis might not necessarily have to stick to the FPS genre. And that although he feels the series was always intended to be a trilogy, he feels there is a lot of life left in the games universe which could possibly work as a different genre of game.

“You know, I think at this point I don’t want to give anything away. But I think the Crysis franchise itself has life left in it. Whether it’s in a different game type format, whether it’s expanding upon this, it’s hard to say. That’s going to be up to the designers at the end of the day. But I think we’ve built…Crysis was always intended to be a trilogy and I think that over that time we’ve built a really cool universe. We haven’t really gone in and said “Hey let’s put Nano suits and clown suits and stuff and completely violate and sell our IP.” We’ve done a fairly good job at maintaining that, so I think in terms of the universe, we have a lot more life left in that to go back and try some unique stuff. Whether it’s FPS or not I have no idea, but there’s definitely a future in the franchise.”

So what genre could Crysis switch to? I think an RTS could probably be built around the franchise however it may not be likely to happen, RTS games seem to be rather far and few between these days and I would imagine it would be due to publishers seeing them as a high risk project. But perhaps we could see it head in an RPG direction in the future thanks to the huge popularity the genre has conjured recently.

What genre would you like to see Crysis 3 take a shot at?


Crysis 3 ‘The Train Yard’ Gameplay Trailer

A new trailer for Crysis 3 is in the wild, and it shows off a lot of gameplay for a section called The Train Yard. One of the most obvious differences between this game and the previous entry is that stealth appears to be a lot more viable as a tactic, akin to the original Crysis.

It also does a good job of showing just how much of a jungle the city has actually become. The city and jungle mesh together very well to create what looks like an excellent setting for a shooter. Wide open spaces combined with the overgrowth bring back the option to scout the battlefield properly before entering into conflict. In short, things are looking very good so far for Crysis 3.

Crytek Say Crysis 3 Will be the Technically Advanced Game This Gen

In a rather bold claim, Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek, has stated that Crysis 3 will be the most technically advanced game to ever reach the current generation of consoles. He also said that Crysis 2 is still one of the most advanced games on the systems when compared to other games on the market.

VideoGamer writes:

“Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli is so confident that Crysis 3 will be the most technically accomplished game ever released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that he’s offered to wage a technological war against current-gen showstoppers Gears of War and Halo.

“Crysis 3 is absolutely maxing out the consoles,” Yerli told during a recent press tour of the game. “There is absolutely not even 1% left.

“No game will ever look technically better than Crysis 3 on these consoles, flat out. Most games are not even anywhere near Crysis 2 technically. I’m not talking about art style – art is subjective – but the pure fact of what we have been cramming in with Crysis 2 on Xbox [360] and PlayStation [3], I’ve yet to see a game do that still today.

He continued: “Any day I will take a battle against Gears and Halo, whatever, the amount of data we put in and the detail level is far superior. With Crysis 3 we’re pushing that to another level, but the PC is just two levels beyond.”
