Crytek have always been at the forefront of making gorgeous looking games with their exceptional CryEngine game engines. If you coud run the original Crysis on your PC it was definitely something to show off. It seems from these screen shots taken from the personal site of Pierre-Yves Donzallaz, the senior lighting artist for Crysis 3, that Crysis 3 is going to be no exception to Crytek’s list of graphically demanding games.
The screen shots were uploaded by Donzallaz but he then quickly took them down, but not before Polygon, the Avengers of video game journalism, managed to grab them. They show what we’ve already seen from the Crysis 3 teaser trailer- New York has become a ruinous tropical rainforest full of machines and mercenaries alike. Crysis 3 is set to launch on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in February 2013.

It’s has been just over a year since the Seth turned New York City into a war zone in Crysis 2 and now EA are back with a third instalment for the franchise. Like its predecessor, Crysis 3 will run on the powerful Crytek 3 engine but looking at this announcement trailer it looks significantly better than last year’s sequel. It would seem the folks at Crytek have been busy tweaking the engine for some impressive results. And frogs.
The game has you play as Prophet on a path of retribution as he tries to uncover the treacherous acts of the Cell corporation who have incased New York City (as well as other cities throughout the world) in these nano domes. The gameplay harkens to the original Crysis with “a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech human and alien weaponry” according to Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. The original Crysis was set on an enormous island which the player could explore at leisure (except for the ocean!) while the sequel was a linear shooter. It would seem that EA are trying to find the perfect balance between the two with this installment. You will be facing off against the Seth and also regular humans in the city-turned-rainforest environment. The trailer reveals a new Seth enemy called the “Scorcher” which will definitely keep Prophet nice and warm.

Crytek have always been renowned for their phenomenal graphics engines in games like Crysis and Crysis 2. ORMEntertainment has taken the new Crytek engine and combined it with Titanic. No not the film, the boat, and it looks amazing. The graphics, the reflections, the shading, pretty much everything is jaw droppingly beautiful. Compare the video to the picture above for perspective. If this is the future of gaming, then I’m going to need a new computer!

The year is 2023 and New York City is being assaulted! A killer virus is rampaging the city, martial law is been enforced by an uneasy alliance between the military and a private security company by the name of Crynet. As if that is not enough action to keep anyone busy, the real threat emerges as aliens begin to invade. Crysis 2 moves away from the jungles that were prevalent in the original Crysis, and takes us into the jungle of New York City. This urban jungle has you playing inside of buildings, crumbling bridges and huge city areas.
You play as a marine named Alcatraz, who like his predecessor in the original Crysis (Nomad), wears a Nanosuit. The Nanosuit allows for your soldier to become a super-soldier. With the Nanosuit you have the ability to leap to impossible heights, cloak yourself invisible (for a short time) and scan your environment. Think of yourself as a kind of walking small version of the Hulk. You have powerful strength and the armor makes you almost impossible to kill. Everything that you see in this game is from the first person view, making for great game play that keeps you engaged. Read more on the Crysis 2 Review. Read more: Crysis 2 Review: Is It Worth It?
