The Prophet returns to a terra-formed New York to take down Cell Corporation's evil plans of domination in Crytek's Crysis 3.

The game is set in a 2047 New York that has been encased in Cell Corporation's Liberty Dome. The cover story is that the quarantine dome exists to protect citizens from the Ceph and other dangers, but the truth is that it's all a part of Cell's attempt at world domination.

The Liberty Dome houses seven distinct locations known as the Seven Wonders. Players will have a new Nanosuit, a deadly composite bow, and alien technology at their disposal as they take on the various environments and whatever enemies get in their path (check out the screens in the gallery below).

Crysis 3 comes out for PC (box shown below), PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in the spring of 2013.

If you pre-order the game now, you can get the Hunter Edition for no extra charge. You'll get early access to Prophet's composite bow and its attachements in multiplayer, the powerful Hunter Nanosuit module, plus the following online perks: An XP boost up to level 5, a unique bow skin, and three exclusive dog tags.
