i'm looking forward to crysis 3 and all but come on EA really. there's another third installment of a successful series that i think is a bit more secretive than crysis.
wow, that's pretty bad. it was so terribly-hidden that they were forced to reveal it. goddamn.
im totally ok with this, 2's singleplayer wasn't as bad as lots of people make it out to be and actually has a decent amount of replay value with mods. overall it was a pretty solid game. although the multiplayer was garbage
Carrying a bow an arrow, I wonder how thats going to work.
If this doesn't have DX11 support from the start I won't be buying it.
They have no excuse now it's in the engine already. If it's another case of DX9-on-release-patch-when-can-be-bothered it's obvious they just ported it.
First was OK, second was terrible.
also, hopefully they will drop the support for that shitty and blurry post MSAA crysis 2 had and implement either fxaa or smaa, both which looks considerately better with less blur
EDIT: Scratch that. One of their technical artists helped, not Crytek entirely.
The way I see it: 50€ for an expansion thats being called a whole new game.
Bow better shoot nukes or no sale
EA is getting a knack for leaking Cryis-related stuff.
I wonder if that was also their thought when the Crysis 2 beta leaked.
Then again, what isn't leaking these days? Aside from Episode 3.
fuck my ass
in other news; Crysis 3 multiplayer leaks, hundreds die from the horrible experience
I am interested in seeing this box art.
I'll probably handle Crysis 3 the same way I handled Crysis 2. Not buy it.
Never played Crysis, but cool.
sorry for doubting you
I instantly thought of this:
Eh, I don't know about that. Crysis 2 was a solid game and I looked forward to it because of first Crysis. But somehow I am not looking forward to the third one like I did to the second one. Maybe this is just because my computer can't have all these graphical gimmicks.
Crysis 2 was solid, people seem to hate on it cause they messed up PC support, but even still it was a great game, following the transition to a city environment it was inevitable that the game was going to become more linear, they added some interesting new gameplay mechanics and made the game more fun to actually play instead of just wanking over the graphics, that said: they did move away from the original fanbase in an attempt to make more money my marketing to a "Broader audience".
I look forward to see what they do with Crysis 3, but I'm making sure not to fall into all of EA's marketing hype bullshit.
Bows, I want a medieval themed game on Cryengine with realistic as all hell arrow physics please

As a huge crysis fanboy, i just want to say that the multiplayer in crysis 2 broke my heart, it was a step back in first person shooter evolution, crysis 1 MP resembles Battlefield in some game modes, using vehicles or going on foot to reach your goals, promoting teamplay, stealth, cunning and actual strategy, C2MP become the typical comercial dumbed down console shooter.
Sure Crysis wars (or C1MP) had a tough learning curb for noobs and had some design flaws, but it's one of the best multiplayer experiences i've had..
And the level design! oh the level design.. the scripting system (Flowgraph) has SO MUCH potential, even with some crappy nodes we add extra features to a map (which can go for dozens of miles in CryEngine) for everyone to enjoy, since 2008 i've been lobbying crytek to open up the scripting system for the multiplayer, because basically you have the potential to pack a game mode entirely in one map, just picture it installing the map, regularly fire it up or download it in-game and have a blast with new custom gameplay with your pals, it would refresh the game and bring back (or more people) to the game
the potential Crysis 1 and Crysis Warhead/Wars has is almost limitless, CryEngine is really the best engine around, but Crytek choose to not listen to the modders and its fan base and instead EA and crytek decided to use the DLC model in crysis 2 (and look how it turned out, game's practically dead) (except for some mods of course)
just my 2 cents, i'm actually a fan of the series, worked on lots of maps and i know what i'm talking about
Oh I wondered why their twitter said that this morning!
To be fair, the gameplay of 1 sucked compared to 2
That made me want to throw the game out of the window. Half the fun in the original was coming up with elaborate, perfect attack plans on the enemy koreans and executing it perfectly. Crysis 2 took out any element of self thought whatsoever and turned it into a mediumly alright shooter
I'm guessing the role in Crysis 3 will be that supplies were cut off so you have to fashion weapons to use with your Nanosuit, maybe some sort of survival thing idk.
Either that or it's like black ops being that this bow and arrow is actually bow and plastic explosive carbon-fibre monstrosity.
Of course if this does turn out to be an ammo-scarce game that'd be awesome - they just need to flesh out the mele mechanics.
Does anyone have that image? I'm curious as to what it specifically looked like.
Origin isn't terrible, it's just inconvenient to divide games between two clients.
crysis 2 was the worst sequel ever. after getting it i literally uninstalled after the first level and uninstalled origin from my computer. fucking trash waste of game
