Also will “push the 360, PS3 to its limits, ahead of Crysis 2”.
It seems that even Crytek weren’t the biggest fans of Crysis 2 and thought that something didn’t feel right for a gameplay formula that worked well with organic, open-world environments. From the words of Crytek boss Cevat Yerli, Crysis 3 will have more in common with 2007’s debut title than of last year’s New York-set, Crysis 2.
While communicating with fans on Twitter, Yerli was quizzed whether Crytek aims with Crysis 3 to bring back the open world environments that made Crysis 1 very popular. Of which, his reply wasn’t a straight-forward yes the new game is a sandbox shooter. Nonetheless, fans of the original title should be excited to read Yerli’s statement.
“Crysis3 will be more a spiritual successor in gameplay to Crysis 1 instead of Crysis 2,” he said
Elsewhere, a message perhaps grew ridiculously old and we nearly heard it a gazillion time in the past few years; Crysis 3 will apparently push the boundaries in terms of technical performance on consoles, yet will be “clearly ahead” on the PC. Is that only some PR gibberish, or Crysis 3 will be that good? Being fans of Crysis we definitely hope for the latter.
The debut trailer for Crysis 3 arrived earlier today, promising a gameplay reveal is due on April 24.
