If you've been looking to expand upon your Crysis 3 experience, you're in luck.
Electronic Arts and Crytek have announced the first downloadable expansion pack for this year's intense shooter. It's called "The Lost Island" and it moves players from the semi-urban setting of the main game to a more tropical locale. It'll be ready to go on June 4 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and it'll hold a price tag of $14.99. We hope it's worth it.
Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said this add-on brings the franchise back to its "spiritual roots:"
In a statement, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said the Lost Island DLC marks a return to the franchise's "spiritual roots."
"The gameplay in the Crysis series has always been deeply connected to the unique environments in which the action takes place. By transporting players out of the Liberty Dome and into the Lost Island setting, we're not only returning to Crysis' spiritual roots, but also introducing fresh ways to play that provide Crysis 3 fans with genuinely game-changing new tactical options, game modes and weapons."
An alien presence has been discovered on a small island in the Philippines, and a band of rebel forces have been sent in to destroy the "unknown extraterrestrial entity" before a CELL team can grab it. It should prove interesting, don't you think? We found Crysis 3 to be somewhat disappointing, although it was indeed a quality production.
