First Crysis 3 gameplay trailer

EA has released the first gameplay footage from Crysis 3, which was announced last week.

Set in 2047, Crysis 3 sees Prophet return to New York City to find that it has been encased in a Nanodome by the nefarious Cell Corporation. Dubbed the New York City Liberty Dome, the city has been turned into a rainforest of sorts, overrun with trees and swamps, with rivers running through it.

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli says the game is "a thrilling mix of sandbox gameplay, advanced combat and hi-tech and alien weaponry that shooter fans will love." It's in development for PS3, Xbox 360 and, of course, PC, and will be released next spring; look out for an in-depth preview in our next issue, E241, which goes on sale on May 9.
