Prophet(former Alcatraz, I suppose) returns to New York once again after finding the truth about the CELL organization’s 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.
Crytek praises their game with improved visuals and gameplay. Crysis 3 will still be based on the CryEngine 3, so I expect that the engine will be further optimized for better performance, gaining access to an even larger audience that first of all will afford the cost of the game.
The Official gameplay trailer offers us a glimpse of the game in action. It seems that Crytek wants to revive the natural environment that gamers were once used to in Crysis and Farcry, but by preserving an urban architecture of the medium.
