Crysis 3 Confirmed, Is Crystal Maze-y

By Alec Meer on April 16th, 2012.

Richard, is that you under there?

Here is a poorly-kept secret: I’m not a very tall man. Here is another one: Crysis 3 is happening. Even before evidence turned up last week, a fourth nanosuited adventure seemed something of a given, but it’s taken the EA-Crytek announcengine this long to formally confirm the next game. I’ve just played Press Release Bingo and I’ve got a “stunning”, a “state of the art”, an “unparalleled visuals”, an “ultimate”, a “leveraging the latest technology” and enough pre-order unlocks to kill a small horse.

Confirmed: we’ll play as angry baldy man Prophet (those who’ve finished Crysis 2 can probably work out why that’s the case), that bow and arrow is legit, it’s due next Spring, it’s using CryEngine 3, it’s going to have “sandbox gameplay” and it’s set in a New York trapped inside an Nanodome which has caused it to transform into an ‘urban rainforest.’

The Midlife Of Crysis – Crytek’s Third En Route?

By Alec Meer on April 11th, 2012.

I bet he gets really sweaty in that suit

While struggling to think up a headline pun to accompany the unsurprising news that there’s almost certainly going to be a third (well, fourth technically speaking) Crysis game, the ‘crap rhymes’ part of my imagination dredged up No Way Sis, who were at one time deemed the UK’s premier Oasis tribute act and enjoyed far too much success of their own. Even a hit single. What a terrible, terrible world this can be.

Anyway, Crysis 3. A spot of digging by Neogaf and Eurogamer’s German arm has turned up assorted hints that Crytek’s third nanosuit oddyssey is due for a reveal soon. They even found a picture of a Crysis dude with a bow and arrow. Which seems sort of incongruous to the nanosuit, but maybe the Strength mode will enable us to shoot arrows that fly for over 20 miles. EXTREME HUNTING.

Crysis Wars Free Weekend, Trailer

By Jim Rossignol on October 7th, 2008.


Crysis Wars is the multiplayer accompaniment to recent Crysis… paraquel? That can be a word, right? Anyway, it’s the multiplayer project that came along with Crysis Warhead, only its been a bit delayed. To make up for this lag in release dates the Crysis Wars teams are allowing people to register on the official site for a weekend of free Crysis Wars play from the 10th to the 12th. So if you’re at a loss for how to sink your idle hours this weekend then this might sort you right out. Of course you’ll need to be a fan of fast-paced multiplayer FPS games, and be comfortable with the idea of being punched to death by that guy who is miraculously incredible at the game, despite having only played it for half an hour. You know the one.

A pacey trailer that features a lot of nanosuits getting spectacularly whacked follows after the jump.

How Not To Make A Video Settings Menu

By Alec Meer on September 22nd, 2008.

(From Crysis Warhead). That’s going to make perfect sense to people who get confused by system specs. Am I a gamer or an enthusiast? I just don’t know! What if I’m both? Is that illegal? And if I’m not mainstream, does that automatically make me edgy and avant-garde? Cos that’d be great.

For fun and frolics, imagine if this list of presets were in a different order.

EA + Steam: Together At Last?

By Alec Meer on September 13th, 2008.

Now here’s a thing. Rousing myself from hangover horror enough to glance briefly at my inbox, I notice a press release about Crysis: Warhead coming to Steam. “Oh, that’s nice”, I think before collapsing into another hour of semi-concious agony. It’s only later that I have a waitagoshdarnedminute moment – this means EA are now prepared to stick their games on Steam. Which is, y’know, a big fecking deal. I believe this means there’s now no remaining major publisher who hasn’t signed up to Valve’s world-devouring download service. Edit – apart from Vivendi, as Theory observes. I is stupid. Still, it’s a fairly momentous occasion, making it increasingly hard to argue that Steam isn’t the iTunes of gaming.

Additional, post-coffee edit – yeah, this seems more to do with Crytek than EA, but EA are mentioned in the press release, and must have at the very least okayed this. It’s a positive step even if it’s not as big as I first thought.

Crysis Wars: 13-Day Aged Prime-Cut Trailer

By Kieron Gillen on August 26th, 2008.


This is a little old, but we somehow didn’t post it when it hit the web a week ago and since I’ve been deep in Crysis: Warhead today for a magazine, it seemed appropriate. It’s a video showing Crysis Warhead’s included re-imagining of the Crysis multiplayer. In short: more short. Intense. More thoughts on FPS-multiplayer and completely random Mass Effect stuff beneath the cut.

Welcome (Back) To The Jungle: Crysis Warhead

By Alec Meer on August 25th, 2008.


Wahey, it’s another video! But it’s a bank holiday, so you should be grateful you’re getting anything at all out of us tradition-spurning Brits, quite frankly. Plus it’s apparently a leaked video, which adds the scintillating thrill of watching something you’re not supposed to. Because seeing footage of games that might make you want to buy them is a bad thing. Yes.

Crysis Heads to War In September

By Alec Meer on August 13th, 2008.

So we’ve got a release date for Crysis Warhead, the… yep, I’m gonna say it. You can’t stop me from saying it… expandalone for last year’s system-eating FPS. It’s September 16th – in America. In Europe, it’s September 12th.

Which is a) great news for we oft-second-fiddle Eurotrash and b) steeeeeeeyoooooooooopid – or at least it is so long as you subscribe to the theory that staggered release dates can increase piracy. It’ll be an interesting situation to watch, at any rate.

Clearing Up Crytek Confusion

By John Walker on June 7th, 2008.

Some PC fans arrive at Crytek HQ

Next-Gen.biz seem to have gotten some clarity out of Crytek over their platform plans for the Crysis series. Crysis Warhead was long in development as a PC exclusive before studio boss Cevat Yerli announced they were going multi-platform.

However, from now on their games will be released across the range of platforms, obviously still including the PC. Crytek’s business manager, Harald Seeley, added,

“[W]e had no desire or intention to disappoint our loyal PC fans.”

Um… There were possibly slightly more uplifting approaches that could have been available. Anyhow, he states that the different platforms will receive different treatments.
