Gamers who pre-order Crysis 3 via EA's online digital distribution service Origin will receive additional content and items, and as a surprise bonus when they pre-order the standard version of the game via Origin their order will be automatically bumped up to the Hunter Edition of the game for no additional charge.
Set for release in Spring 2013 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC platforms, Crysis 3 is the next chapter in the ongoing "sandbox shooter" Crysis series, placing gamers back in the role of the iconic character Prophet, who returns to New York City only to find it has been completely encased in a Nanodome constructed by the Cell Corporation.
The story resumes in the year 2047 when Prophet -- now bent upon obtaining revenge after learning that Cell Corporation's Nanodome quarantines are part of a larger goal of corporate global domination -- takes the battle back to the streets of Gotham City and expands his list of enemies to include not just the alien Ceph forces (who are still around and still don't have much use for humanity) adding the soldiers, scientists, officers both military and corporate, and the automated resources of Cell Corp to the list.
The environment inside what is now being called the "New York City Liberty Dome" has altered the Big Apple in very significant ways, chopping up the contained area into seven distinct and treacherous environments known as the Seven Wonders. Among the challenging environments that the Prophet will battle through are the to-be-expected concrete jungle as well as a mini-jungle in its own right consisting of rainforest and swampland!
One of the new weapons in the game is a composite bow for Prophet -- and gamers who pre-order the Hunter Edition of the game will have the new Composite Bow unlocked from Day 1!
Gamers who pre-order the standard edition of the game from EA's Origin Service will receive the Hunter Edition (one of the Special Editions of the game -- there may be others still to be announced) upgrade free of additional cost, and will also receive the Overkill Pack -- which is available for PC Digital Download Only -- as an added pre-order bonus.
The Overkill Pack includes the base game, all Hunter Edition content, and early multiplayer unlocks including early multiplayer access to the Typhoon assault weapon and skin.
The Typhoon Assault Rifle can spew 500 rounds a second, giving players the ability to go guns blazing to take back the Liberty Dome! Also included in this pack are the Rapid-Fire Nano-suit module and two exclusive Overkill themed dog tags.
The Hunter Edition Bonus Content Includes:
-- The option to transform yourself into the ultimate Hunter Online: gamers obtain early access to the new signature Crysis 3 bow, bow attachment, and "Hunter" Nanosuit module for use in Crysis 3 Multiplayer.
-- Multiplayer Head Start: a bonus XP boost up to Level 5 and the ability to unlock custom load-outs early in the game.
-- Look Sharp: customize your load-out, plus get a unique bow skin and three exclusive "Hunter" themed dog tags.
