Earlier this month, Crytek announced that they had partnered up with film maker Albert Hughes to produce a multi-part video series called 'The Seven Wonders of Crysis 3'.
This series is based on the 7 distinct regions in Crysis 3, also known as the 'Seven Wonder's. These unique areas will challenge Prophet in new ways, requiring him to change his tactics as he hunts down CELL operators and seeks to stop the corruption of the evil corporation. This first video, directed by Albert Hughes, focuses on the overgrown, wrecked New York City. Trees and verdant plants have grown up all over the city as the 'world reclaim[s] what we've stolen from it.' Buildings and streets can be glimpsed among the wildly growing foliage, but this is not New York City as you may know it.
Albert Hughes and the guys at Crytek have done a really great job here, showing off the environments in Crysis 3 while delivering some fascinating back story on Crysis 3's campaign. The narration clearly explains what has happened since the events of Crysis 2 and we think these videos are going to be the perfect segue from now until Crysis 3 ships in February, 2013.
