Crysis 3 Revealed

In a move that may not be surprising to anyone, Crytek and EA have revealed that there will in fact be a Crysis 3 that will be coming to PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 in 2013.  The first Crysis was well known as a very taxing PC game, in which many people would actually go out and have to fully upgrade their computers in order to run in the quality that it could be run at.  Crysis 2 was a pretty strong follow-up (it may have not garnered the same attention as the first, but it was a strong game in its own right), but the big thing about the second game was that Crysis 2 was the first in the series to come to platforms outside of the PC (it was also released on the Xbox 360 and PS3).

One of the big differences between Crysis and Crysis 2 however, was the setting.  The first Crysis took place in a tropical jungle setting, so the ability to really go all out on graphics was an option, and they definitely redefined the way that graphics looked in a game of that age (it came out in 2007).  Crysis 2 changed the setting drastically to a much more city-like environment, which could have been to make in easier on the graphics capabilities of the PS3 and Xbox 360 (which are fixed, unlike PCs, where you can upgrade).  Well, fans of the first iteration can rejoice, as the location of Crysis 3 has also been revealed as a New York setting that has been overwhelmed by a jungle area, which means that the setting will very much resemble Crysis as opposed to Crysis 2.  An exact date has not been released yet, but with shows like E3 and Pax Prime around the corner, we should expect more details to come out soon.
