Crytek and Albert Hughes show us 'The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3'; teaser trailer and screenshots inside
Called, "The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3", this cinematic series of trailers introduce us to the weapons, enemies, and gameplay features we can expect in this third installment in the Crysis franchise ahead of its release on February 19 in North America and on February 21 in Europe. Each video in the series was created entirely using in-game assets powered by Crytek's CryENGINE 3 technology.
"When EA and Crytek approached me about being involved in creating 'The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3' video series, I liked the idea of creating emotional stories using only computer generated images," stated Albert Hughes. "The challenge of producing something intensely human without ever seeing a human on screen was incredibly compelling, and the technology of the CryENGINE that Crytek developed enabled me to do that and venture into a completely unique medium of storytelling."
"The goal with 'The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3' video series is to reveal the incredible world we have been building for Crysis 3 and to let CryENGINE take center stage to highlight the power of our state-of-the-art game engine," said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. "We've worked closely with Albert on this project and think that the 7 Wonders series will show the leaps and bounds that Crysis 3 is making over its predecessors."
