EA Showcases the Power of Cry Engine 3 with First Crysis 3 Gameplay Footage

EA promised it was coming, and today it has finally arrived. The first bits of in-game footage of Crysis 3 have been revealed through a brand-new announcement trailer, and to no one’s surprise, the game looks gorgeous.

Crytek is undoubtedly one of the industry’s leaders in graphical technology, and they’ve managed to outdo themselves yet again with Crysis 3. The game takes place in a New York City turned jungle environment and the combination of urban and wilderness makes for some amazing set pieces. Plus, a super-advanced bow has been added to the arsenal of available weapons.  Does it get much better than that?

Check out the announcement trailer for yourself below.

Crysis 3 is set for launch sometime early next year, so there’s still a lot of work yet to be done before the game is complete. Let us know what you think of the trailer and where you’d like to see Crytek take this third installment in the comments below.
