The premise in Crysis 3 is that the entirety of Manhattan has been encased in a massive Nanodome, for the 'safety' of its citizens. Inside this dome, there exist 7 unique and distinct regions that the player will traverse in Crysis 3.
Crytek and EA are teaming up with acclaimed director Albert Hughes to produce a series of short videos based on these regions, known as 7 Wonders of Crysis 3. Hughes is perhaps best known for directing From Hell and The Book of Eli. As Hughes says, EA and Crytek wanted to give Crysis 3 a proper film treatment that played out as a cinematic short. As gorgeous as Crysis 3 is (on PC), these short videos look every bit as beautiful.
The trailer above gives a very brief glimpse of what Crysis fans can expect, and we're very excited to see what Hughes and the teams at Crytek and EA end up with. The series will debut on December 12th, 2012 - just a week away from today!
