It’s been almost 2 years since we played Crysis 2. While the game was pretty cool, it did not live up to the fans expectations and left a lot of disappointment in their hearts. Perhaps, this is why we see the next title in the Crysis franchise being released relatively soon after the last game and maybe it is intended to fix the mistakes Crysis 2 made. Crysis 3 is just around the corner and here are 5 reasons why you should be expecting it.
1. The Return of Prophet and Psycho
In Crysis 3 we regain control and step into the shoes of “Prophet” once again. How he comes back to life is unclear but Crytek says the have a “good explanation”. We can also hear Psycho in the trailer and his role in Crysis 3 is unclear but the return of those 2 beloved character and their context in the game is something you wouldn’t want to miss finding out.
2. New Multiplayer
Crysis 3 introduced a real multiplayer mode for the Crysis franchise with actual emphasis on game modes and arsenal. This feature brings a major ‘buff’ to the franchise, assuring replayability and many opportunities for content updates and DLC packs.
3. Hacking Functionality
While it was unclear exactly how Crysis 3’s hacking will work, it appears it will follow Syndicate’s approach: hold down a key for a few seconds while targeting a turret, door panel, switch, you name it, and it’s hacked. If that type of mechanic is prevalent throughout Crysis 3, it could introduce some fun alternate pathways through the city.
4. The Predator Bow
While it might be a gimmick, it gives a good variety of gameplay and ways of killing dudes. Shooting them in the face isn’t as fun as it used to be.
5. “PC Melting” Imagery
Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli stated that the PC version of Crysis 3 will figuratively “melt down PCs” due to its highest image quality system requirements. The PC version of the game will require a DirectX 11 compatible video card and operating system. If Cevat Yerli will live up to his words, this game is going to not only looks amazing but also feels this way.
