Last week we saw a slip up on Origin revealing box art for Crysis 3, all but confirming that we could expect the next sequel of Crytek's alien-punching sandbox shooter sometime soon.

Crytek has today officially announced Crysis 3, which will see players take control of "Prophet" from the previous two titles. Set in New York, the player must fight their way through the alien entrenched streets with a composite bow, a nanosuit and a heap of alien technology.
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.

Within the Liberty Dome, seven distinct and treacherous environments become known as the Seven Wonders.This dangerous new world demands advanced weapons and tactics. Prophet will utilize a lethal composite bow, an enhanced Nanosuit and devastating alien tech to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.
Crytek has also announced that players who are ready to start the hunt can pre-order the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition today. Currently available to pre-order on Origin at an Australian price tag of $79.99, the Hunter Edition is jam packed with goodies.
  • Stalker Pack – Includes the base game, all Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: for players who like to stalk their prey from the shadows the Stalker Pack provides early multiplayer access to the deadly semi-auto Jackal shotgun. This powerful, close-range shotgun comes with a unique silencer attachment, custom weapon skin and two exclusive themed in-game dog tags.

  • Overkill Pack – Includes the base game, all Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the Overkill Pack features early multiplayer access to the Typhoon assault weapon and skin. Spewing 500 rounds a second, the Typhoon gives players the ability to go guns blazing to take back the Liberty Dome. Also included are two exclusive Overkill themed in-game dog tags.

  • Predator Pack – Includes the base game, all the Hunter Edition content and the following early multiplayer unlocks: the Predator Pack delivers early multiplayer access to the Feline submachine gun and exclusive camo. With an extremely fast rate of fire and a 60 round magazine the Feline is highly effective and deadly, at short range.
  • Crytek has also given players a bit of eye candy, with five new screenshots showing off the beautiful looking scenery that the CryENGINE 3 is able to offer (check out this video on what the engine can do) which you can check out below.

    While no multiplayer details have been released yet, we can hopefully expect more news in the coming months, especially with AusGamers attending E3 once again this year.

    Crysis 3 will be available 2013 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Pre-orders are now available on Origin for PC.

    I'm pretty sure everybody thinks Alactraz is Prophet in Crysis 2 though.

    Ah yes I remember, his voice even changes to the likeness of Prophet's at the end.
