Crysis 3 a “spiritual successor” to the original Crysis, says Crytek boss
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.
