Opening in 2047, almost 25 years after the events of the previous game, Crysis 3 sees US soldier Prophet return to a war-torn New York City fallen into an advanced state of decay.
Mankind’s decades-long war against the extraterrestrial Ceph has left the metropolis all but empty of human life, and the mysterious C.E.L.L. corporation has attempted to quarantine the alien-infested city by constructing an enormous nanodome around it. Cut off from the outside world, the abandoned streets and squares have crumbled into ruin, and nature has returned to reclaim the land.
Freed from C.E.L.L. incarceration by a resistance force led by former colleague Psycho, Prophet soon finds himself alone in this urban jungle of derelict buildings, disused railway lines and lush but lethal rainforest. Rivers roar down submerged avenues and wildlife flourishes in the shadow of skyscrapers – while everywhere lurk the deadly remnants of the Ceph invasion. But they’re not the only enemy on Prophet’s mind: the agents of C.E.L.L. are on the hunt for their escaped prisoner, and they’ll stop at nothing to bring him in, dead or alive.
Action-packed from the outset, Crysis 3 is a twisting, turning thrill ride brimming with dark secrets, global conspiracies and jaw-dropping revelations. Alone and with only his wits and an arsenal of awesome weaponry to aid him, it’s up to Prophet to expose C.E.L.L. and end its plans for world domination – before an even greater foe destroys Earth and everything on it.
