As part of the marketing campaign leading up to the launch of Crysis 3, Crytek is releasing seven short trailers called the “The Seven Wonders of Crysis 3.” The first episode detailed combat against human opponents, but episode two features a far more dangerous enemy.
In the latest trailer, players get a taste of the alien enemies that they will encounter in Crysis 3. It’s assumed that the squid-like aliens from the first two games will make a return, but Crysis 3 features a new type of alien that looks to be far more aggressive and deadly.
The tall grass and the almost dinosaur-like aliens are giving me a serious Jurassic Park vibe. It will pretty amazing if Crytek is able to replicate the fear of being hunted by a velociraptor. That being said, the trailer casts off any semblance of subtlety near the end when the player busts out a gun and goes to town on anything and everything.
As always, the game’s visuals look phenomenal and the bow is shaping up to be a nice addition to the arsenal in Crysis 3. The next episode is named “Cause and Effect,” and one can only guess what’s going to happen.
