EA's Crysis 3 trailer is an interactive demo
Electronic Arts (EA) and Crytek have released an interactive trailer demo for the long-awaited Crysis 3 FPS.
The clip can best be described as a video run-through of the upcoming first-person shooter that offers branching decisions to show how gameplay is influenced by various combat strategies.
For example, do you take a stealthy approach, or adopt a head-on strategy and attack the opposition using the nanosuit's advanced armor capabilities?
"Take control of Prophet, and decide the best strategy to take care of your objective," Crysis reps wrote in the official YouTube video description. "Whether you decide to silently stalk soldiers through the swamp with Stealth, or transform into an immovable object that cannot be stopped by conventional firepower with Armor - Crysis 3 allows you to become the Hunter."
For the uninitiated, Crysis 3 - set in 2074 - allows players to take on the role of Prophet as he returns to New York and discovers the city's been encased in a giant Nanodome built by the corrupt Cell Corporation. An urban rainforest is growing within the dome, complete with dense swamplands, raging rivers, and seven distinct environments.
Crysis 3 is slated to launch this Spring for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC.
