Yep, Crysis 3. Also, look at the buildings in the background of the picture - it's New York after being destroyed/ravaged in Crysis 2. It looks exactly like the ending scene of Crysis 2 as well.

Fuck yes. I cannot wait for Crysis 3. The best of Crysis 1/Warhead + Crysis 2's tighter suit controls/combat/movement... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm baby

Was Crysis 2 received well on GAF?
I think "mixed reaction" would be an understatement.

Personally, playing in on a console, I thoroughly enjoyed most of the single player campaign. I also thought the multiplayer was almost great, some really fun ideas and maps let down mainly by the horrible lag that seemed to happen every third game or so and some poorly thought out spawning.

I'm excited to see what they do with it next.

Crysis 2 is absolutely amazing, it has grown on me so much since I first tried it.

Yeah me too. It's one of the very very very few games I'll probably play through a second time one of these days.

Also to the reveal, possibility it's some kind of Crysis 2 expansion or something also imo, though I'd much rather see Crysis 3 of course...

Crysis 2: Warhead

Edit: Hmm, Game Reactor talks of "an action packed sequel" though.

Mag date is supposed to be April 16.

-- Hopefully they won't sweat too much on multiplayer and focus their effort on SP, Crysis 2 multiplayer died out pretty quick when they didn't address the hacks and exploits in a timely manner.

I stopped playing the MP because I couldn´t reach the hardcore mode fast enough and I got tired of having to sink two mags into my opponents to kill them.

Sad thing there is a major visual glitch on 360 (so called grain bug), has a huge thread on their forums dedicated too it for months, and they ignored it too.

Huge glitch too, basically the graphics degrade with a grainy pattern after a while on 360. Not sure if all 360's affected but mine was. Restarting level fixes I think, but it inevitably comes back.

Hopefully it's just an expansion pack for C2. I don't want another New York scenario for a full fledged sequel, personally I see C2 as a huge disappointment in terms of level design, story and artistic direction.

Cry3 should be targeted for next gen or be PC exclusive again.

I'm going to use this thread to spam a mod I tried and liked earlier tonight.

C Mod

It changes the gun position to match that of the first game, so they don't take up half the screen, mutes the suit voice, so no more endless "Cloak engaged" etc., and changes the boost speed to that of the first game, as well as some other things. Combine it with Maldo's mod for maximum game.

Crysis wouldn't even break my top ten shooters.

EDIT: Oh, and I'm well aware I'm in a minority with this opinion :p.

Crysis 3 better be more like the original. Anyone putting Crysis 2 over the first is crazy. 2 had shitty enemies, butchered gameplay, terrible weapons and limited options straight from the start.

As an fps on its on term though, Crysis 2 is decent. But it is no fucking Crysis.

Ohhhh ok...anyway, it's Crysis 3. Saw this at Guru3D just now.



It's a real Google result. Try searching for "crysis 3 pre-order origin" and its the 5th result for me.
They took it down but not the ads for the other versions :3

Good.

I would rather get Crysis 3 sooner than have them spend time on expansion for Crysis 2.

A bow, who needs guns!?
I think something like that could be a sign they're wanting to open things up more like the first game. More options or something.

So would this game be releasing next year, then? I'd assume it'd have a quicker turnaround since the engine's already done.

Looks like a city in the background. Could be Big Ben there, ending of Crysis 2 hinted at locations like London.

I think there should be a rule that when you fuck up your announcement by leaking something early you have to do the announcement immediately and stop being a cocktease.

damn, if it's in a city again I'll be disappointed. Crysis 2 was horrible . I didn't like crysis 1 either but atleast I could blow up building and get tornadoes to destroy a whole jungle whilst nukes are going off in the background.
