EA and Crytek have today announced that a new multiplayer DLC pack will be making its way to the futuristic Crysis 3 shooter, offering four additional themed maps. Players who gather up the strength to try out the new DLC will be shipped off to the West Pacific to find four new maps, two additional multiplayer modes - Frenzy and Possession - and deadly new weapons.
“The gameplay in the Crysis series has always been deeply connected to the unique environments in which the action takes place,” stated Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek. “By transporting players out of the Liberty Dome and into the Lost Island setting, we’re not only returning to Crysis’ spiritual roots, but also introducing fresh ways to play that provide Crysis 3 fans with genuinely game-changing new tactical options, game modes and weapons.”
Crysis 3: The Lost Island will be making its way to PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 on June 4th for 1200 Microsoft points and $14.99.

Not that the title to this post should be construed as a bad thing, rather that you should take it as an indication that once you "Suit Up", as EA is telling us to, you're going to be strapped in for one heck of a rollercoaster ride.

But as PC lovechild and FPS hero, Bennett "GunSlingerAUS" Ring learns through his Crysis 3 review duties, there's only so many explosions a man can take. Even one suited up in a piece of nano amazement. Crysis 3 does a lot right, including catering the game more towards the PC strengths of Crytek and their roots, but it forgets to take a breath every once in a while.

Crysis 3 is due on February 22 2013 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

EA has unveiled details regarding the open beta phase for upcoming sci-fi FPS Crysis 3, with a date set for January 29th. Players wanting to jump in on the action will be able to compete in two beta multiplayer modes; Hunter and Crash Site. The open beta will also feature two maps, the dark Museum map and the open field Airport map.
Hunter Mode: This multiplayer game mode is all about the survival of the fittest. There are two teams, initially comprised of two permanently cloaked “Hunters”, and up to fourteen CELL troopers awaiting extraction. Each trooper slain respawns on the Hunter team to prey on their former allies, building to a frenetic climax. If any of the troopers survive the round, the hunters lose. Whichever way you play, Hunter Mode delivers a heart-pounding test of strategy and survival.

Crash Site Mode: This multiplayer game mode is the ultimate King of the Hill type experience. An Alien dropship deploys a pod at random around the map. Players on each team must remain near the dropped pod in order to capture the zone and accumulate points. Each alien pod holds two shields players can utilize defensively as weapons. In addition, each Crash Site map will have a “Pinger”, a CEPH-constructed walking weapon of mass destruction. But be careful, other players can hijack the Pinger while you’re inside of it!
The open beta will allow players to level up to rank 10 before capping out, and will offer various customisations for your Nanosuit including weapons, attachments and suit modules. The open beta will begin January 29th, and will be available for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

EA has also revealed a new gameplay trailer titled 'The Nanosuit', detailing just what exactly players can do with their exo-skeleton suit. Check it out below.

AusGamers was recently given a chance to catch up with Crytek's Mike Read to get a read on where the studio is at with their final chapter in the Crysis trilogy, Crysis 3.

Among a range of topics, we spoke with him about being on the home stretch, what the team has learnt from Far Cry through to Crysis 3, dedicated servers (and their importance in the world of PC gaming), and if the team could ever foresee a future where another studio takes on the Crysis universe.

"I don’t think so. Crysis is something that has really helped build Crytek to what it is today," Read explained.

"From the CryEngine 2 with the original Crysis, to what we’ve done with the CryEngine 3, and the number of licensees, and how we’re continuing to grow out that, in terms of film, and games, and architecture, and all of these different facets. We’re moving in quite a number of different directions."

The first episode in Crytek's "7 Wonders" promotional trailer series has been released, titled "Hell of a Town", and showing off a four minute gameplay segment from the Fields level in the game.

Each of the 7 wonders clips will reportedly showcase distinct environments from the game, and all are being directed by filmmaker Albert Hughes (From hell, Book of Eli), which is certainly an unusual touch for footage captured in the game engine:
