The Urban Jungles of Crysis 3

by Bill Hess on May 3, 2012


A batch of new Crysis 3 screenshots and concept art have arrived today, furthering the case for Crysis 3’s likelihood of being another great looking game from Crytek.  The mash-up between the New York City backdrop, and Nanodomes in which it is contained provides an interesting contrast in the graphics department.

Set in 2047, Prophet is on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation’s motives for building the quarantined Nanodomes. The citizens were told that the giant citywide structures were resurrected to protect the population and to cleanse these metropolises of the remnants of Ceph forces. In reality, the Nanodomes are CELL’s covert attempt at a land and technology grab in their quest for global domination. With Alien Ceph lurking around every corner and human enemies on the attack, nobody is safe in the path of vengeance. Everyone is a target in Prophet’s quest for retribution.

Crysis 3 is set to arrive on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC next Spring.

    I like Crysis 1 immersion and World better, But I like Crysis 2 Gameplay better, YES both Campaign are better than BF and COD, but online I would say: 1. BF3  2. C2  3. MW3.
    Sorry BF3 is just EPIC online :/

    Your statement ipimles, it wasn’t just the fact it was rushed out, as the glitches make it clear (that it wasn’t just the fact, that it was rushed out).English , learn it, you idiot!How can you say they did their best job, when they had to rush it out, now THAT’S a contradiction.They spent 4 years, developing a multi-platform engine, not the actual game itself. The game only came into being later on in process. Furthermore, that doesnt mean anything. I could spend 100 years developing a game, but still have issues I havent resolved, as I didnt have time to fix them, or know how to fix them, but later on I fix them. In conclusion what I am saying and said is yes it was rushed out as everyone knows, but Crytek spent a long long time making the game and did their best job, the game has pretty bad AA and allot of framerate drops and some technical problems, and that isnt down to just being rushed out [the bugs and glitches are], that is the best they could do with little experience of optimizing and making a game for consoles without taking a decade Of course the technical issues are down to being rushed, pptimising takes time, even more so if you don’t have experience of doing so, and another 2-3 months may have been enough to vastly improve it’s issues. look at differences between code of bf3 on Jimmy Fallon and now. If dice were pushed to have had bf3 ready for the point at which it went on air at Jimmy Fallon’s show, we’d all be sitting here going, well dice are crap, bf3 is crap, they couldnt optimise properly etc.Crysis 2 didn’t have budget of BF3, and EA decided it was good enough, and they didn’t want waste more time and money on it.6 months have passed and that’s a lot in terms of developing time, and their engine will have been heavily optimised since then.You always take extreme views, with no sense of perspective or common sense often.I have been harsh on you calling you name’s ,as you are not an idiot, but you really need to use ur head a little and think sometimes. yes Crysis 2 had issues, but so did Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2 was amazingly better, and theres nothing to have stopped Crytek improving their engine between then and now.Furthermore, you point out all the bad points on Crysis 2, but fail to point out the amazing stuff it did well too.We can do this with kz3, uc2 etc too. Uc2, is linear, has low res alpha transparencies, controller response latencies that are abnormally high,ssao isnt very well developed, animation of nathan isnt that great. kz3 has low res textures lying around, it has loads of artifacting and shimmering. does that sound fair analysis of those games?No1, of course not, theres many positives to crysis 2, but you need to take of your blinkers and see it. Theres a reason why DF and many others were impressed by the game’s tech, and like you said, it was their first effort using the tech on console, and will improve. Uc1 tore like a b**h and had horrible input latency too, but uc2 improved upon those issues.VN:F [1.9.15_1155](from 2 votes)

    i just hope that they won’t make C3 too similar to C2, ’cause if they do, i won’t buy, even if i want to
