Crysis 3 will be “Spiritual Successor to Crysis 1”, says Crytek

Now that EA has revealed Crysis 3 to the world, Crytek’s Cevat Yerli has been speaking freely about the game.  After trading in the lush jungles of Crysis 1 for an urban jungle in Crysis 2’s New York City setting, fans have seen a mixture of both in the initial reveal of Crysis 3.

Crytek’s Cevat Yerli recently commented on the new look for New York and how it’ll likely make Crysis 3 feel more like the successor to the original Crysis than Crysis 2 did.  In answering fan questions on Twitter, Yerli explained that the company is definitely taking the franchise back to its roots.

“Crysis 3 will be more a spiritual successor in gameplay to Crysis 1 instead of Crysis 2.”

For those that played the original, Crysis gave players a lot more freedom in its sandbox gameplay than did its sequel.  With more to come ahead of its 2013 release, we’ll have to wait for more specific details about how Crytek is tweaking the gameplay for Crysis 3.

A first gameplay trailer is due out later this week, on April 24th.
