Crysis 3 Leaked Through Origin

Crysis 3 Leaked Through Origin

EA's online service reveals box art and pricing info for an upcoming Crysis sequel.

In a surprising turn of events, EA's Origin service briefly leaked some preliminary information about Crysis 3, the sequel to last year's hardware-melting Crysis 2. The info was screencapped by Neogaf forum users before being taken down by EA, and interested parties can still find Crysis 3's store page through Google.

Other than some pricing info and box art, the leak doesn't do much more than hint that we'll be battling once again in an urban setting using the high-tech Nanosuit seen in the previous Crysis games, and some kind of futuristic compound bow may be a prime weapon of choice available to players. However, exactly why exactly a commando wearing a highly advanced set of super body armor would be using archery to battle against alien invaders has yet to be explained.

Neogaf users also point out that GameReactor magazine has hinted at a more detailed reveal later this month, so the Origin leak doesn't do much more then steal some of its thunder. The leak also doesn't specify a release date for Crysis 3, but does list a retail price of $49.99 USD for both the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game.

As one of the few people who really liked Crysis 2 for what it was (even though Crysis and Warhead were way better) I'm pretty excited for this. Hopefully they open it up a little more like the first game, though I'm not holding my breath.

Avoid buying it through origin though.

Played the Crysis 2 Multiplayer demo, played like MW3. Didn't buy it.

Not fussed with this either, I don't have a face melting desktop, and I don't care too much for the series.

I knew this was coming a mile away, although it sounds like its an actual sequel, and have stopped caring about the cliffhanger they gave at the first game. I liked all of the past Crysis games, and will probably get this one if its any good, but we shall see.

Wow, $50 usd? finally, a major publisher stopped pricing pc games at $60. We're not consoles, you know.

this pretty well sums up my thoughts on it
I didn't like the MP on the Crysis 2 demo so I waited for a sale to get it cheap since I was only going to mess with the SP part.

Sweet! Hawkeye FINALLY got his own game!

Kind of shocking that the publisher in question has to be EA, to boot. They're not exactly known for their good prices.

OT: I liked Crysis and Warhead, but I didn't ever get to play Crysis 2. I'll probably pick both this and Crysis 2 up at the same time, especially if EA sells Crysis 2 at a discount during the first few days of Crysis 3's release.

Heres hoping it doesn't suck so much ass like its predecessor. I still maintain Crysis as the finest shooter ever created while Crysis 2 was so horrificly bland, mundane, shallow and average that it's a wonder that my gamebox hasn't taken the same colour as my wall and sunken into my bookshelf.

While the ultimate would be a PC-exclusive once again (although it seems highly unlikely), I'll be fine if they go the Battlefield 3 route. Sure, BF3 was neutured to fit onto console but at least Dice tried their darnest to keep the light on. Crysis 2 was a shameless CoD-clone that did not deliver anything except disappointment.

Ah well, I'm ranting. Just re-hire Hans Zimmer to do the main theme. After all, the man has a tendency of making generally average to bad games at least worth finishing (Modern Warfare 2, Crysis 2). And bring back Nomad or Psycho for fuck sake!

EDIT: Seems like my avatar is expressing my present feelings exactly the way I want it to!

That's gotta be a lie, no way would EA price a PC game at 50 dollars.

If they release Crysis 3 with DX 11 instead of lying and giving it out months later, MAYBE I'll consider getting it. Also if they follow Nomad again, and if it's not cut down...Ok, I would prefer Crysis 1.

Wow, I'm actually not excited about the game, but by the idea of combining a bow with the power suit.

Think of the sheer poundage you could crank the bow up to!

Considering the kind of potential strength the nanosuit can push a person's body to, that bow must pack a hell of a punch.
Looking forward to this; Crysis 2 turned out to be surprisingly entertaining, and I still catch myself humming that theme song.

Ea pricing the game at $49.99 is part of some grand evil plan, it has to be right? It's not like they are using digital distribution to make games cheaper, when valve isn't.

origin is acting like the arkward drunk uncle at crisis wedding...

I'm sorry but how is Crysis 2 in any way hardware melting?

Just want to point out that almost all Origin games is priced at 499Swedish kr which is 100kr less then the console version [100kr=15$]
(In Sweden)

Crysis 2 hardware melting?... I beg to differ... maybe after the DX11 patch, but not hardware melting in any way.

Now they're turning Alcatraz (what happened to Nomad and Psycho?) into Turok... nice.

I'm down for it. I still play Crysis 2 multiplayer, so bring on the sequel.

Though I'm not sure if it's coming to the PS3. I hope it does. Otherwise, damn everything.

Also, I so to use the Nanosuit and a bow. The mere idea makes me hard.

Give me my non-neutered Crysis or fuck off, EA.

I know this sounds aggressive, but seriously. Seriously.

Oh hell yes. I played Crysis 2 on console first, then managed to get Crysis 1 and I loved them both. So yeah, I'll be watching and waiting.

I was just pointing out that most of EA's games lately have been the same price as the console version. Mass Effect 3, Dragon Age 2, Syndicate all 60 US dollars, same as the console version regardless of physical or Origin copy. I just assumed US dollars since there's a dollar ($) sign. My assumption though would be that in Sweden digital distribution is cheaper than physical copies, which makes sense.

It's $50 for the 360 version too according to the picture.

OT: I don't buy EA games, so as much as I'd like to play this I'm not going to.

Nice! Loved Crysis 2. Have no idea how the hell people thought it was a CoD Ripoff. As long as its Origin-Free...

while Crisis 2 did really piss me off since the ending made no sense at all, I did thoroughly enjoy the single player campaign for it and still rank it as one of the best FPS campaigns in recent years.
I'll be keeping an eye on any information they release about it

This can't be right because it is listed as 49.99 and EA has already established they want to rape gamers for 59.99 for all games now.

That's what I keep telling people! I...oh wait, I thought you were talking about Mass Effect 3.

OT: I'm not sure, CryTek. The second Crysis didn't exactly blow me away, but hey, I'll rent it. Maybe.
If Yahztee doesn't slam it into the ground with accusations of blandness and generic gameplay XD.

Well for PC that's not going to be an option

Yes, the full game when they finally got it put out via patches was hardware melting. Saying it was not hardware melting just because the initial release was limited to a lower graphical programming api than the original was dumb.

lol wut?

It's not even hardware melting with Dx11 patch and texture.
I was able to play that game with only one of my gpus.

This seems awfully well timed by EA. It seems like EA are trying to divert everyone's attention from the whole 'dark side' petition PR stunt, which ironically was also a diversion from the 'worst company in america' thing. It doesn't even shock me how despicable EA is anymore.

Also, why the fuck you spend a gajillion dollars on a nanosoldier and give him a goddam bow and arrow?

Also also, Goddam I hate origin so much, KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!

I wish they'd bring back the tropical setting. Much prefered the scenery of Crysis 1.

I really liked Crysis 2. This is good to hear.

I just popped in to wonder whether crysis 2 really melted any hardware, but I can see that horse has been beaten. To death.

You do know that it's the developers and publishers that set the price of the games they sell on Steam right? Not Valve.

Pretty sure Portal 2 was $49.99 on release too.

OT: Whilst I liked Crysis 2 I don't think I'll be picking up the next in the series.

Well, maybe when it's on sale I will.

Pretty much this. I'm tentatively interested, as I am a massive fan of the first game and quite liked the second, but I've been burned too many times by EA to pre-order the thing. Gonna let some post-release gameplay vids come out first.
