The game – touted as the “first blockbuster shooter of 2013” – is set to take place in New York once again. The plot will see the Prophet from Crysis 2 return to the North American city only to find it encased in a Nanodome by the Cell Corporation. Naturally, the Nanodomes are part of the aforementioned company’s sinister plans to take over the world. Kick yourselves if you didn’t know that already.
Crytek CEO Cervat Yerli continued:
