Crysis 3 is a futuristic first-person shooter from the German video game company Crytek that’s set to be released this coming February 2013 for the XBOX 360. In this third game in the series, Prophet returns to New York City and finds an urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. If you watch the video above, you’ll see the exhaustive level of detail the designers put into the environment.
I’ve admittedly never played the Crysis series, but this game looks pretty fun and challenging. In my humble opinion, video games have taken the back seat to graphics in the past few decades. Games for Nintendo released over 20 years ago focused on creating challenging puzzles, and as a result, the games were both difficult and rewarding.
It appears that with Crysis 3, Crytek put an emphasis back on gameplay to accompany their stunning graphics. I sure hope it delivers.
