If this trailer is any indication of the final product, I don’t think Crysis 3 warranted the whole increment in numbering.
EA and Crytek announced today that Crysis 3 was a real thing. Not that much of a surprise really. Their first foray into the console space yielded decent results.
Crysis 3 promises more jungle and city elements, but most importantly — for Crytek and graphic whores — the best visuals out there. Will they succeed? The screenshots below seem to be an indication.
We can all expect Crysis 3 in Spring 2013 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Warface? Out of all the names, Crytek chose Warface. I guess it’ll work well with their Gface initiative. It’s going to be a free to play first person shooter and it will be class based. I bet you can guess what the classes will be without even pressing play on the trailer below.
I can’t say I’m intrigued. Nothing shown in the trailer was particularly original — not even the mech. But who knows? It’s free and it may turn out to be something great.
It wouldn’t be a Game Developer’s Conference without some middleware upselling. First we have Crytek’s CryEngine 3. It starts with a demo reel of games powered by their engine before getting into the nitty gritty.
It’s a nice little off screen capture of the trailers, but it doesn’t quite match the trailer Epic put out for their Unreal Engine 3 updates.
Epic’s trailer showcased a wide range of platforms including Adobe Flash, Vita, iOS and the usual candidates. That’s far more impressive than the handful of no-name games (except Mechwarrior Online) that Crytek showed off. But most importantly, Unreal Engine 3 continues to look awesome. I look forward to GDC 2013 where we’ll hopefully be seeing Unreal Engine 4 making its debut.
