Battlefield 3 developer DICE has confirmed earlier this week that a new DLC for Battlefield 3 will be released in March 2013. The End Game DLC comes more than 15 months after the release of Battlefield 3 in October 2011 and we’re proud that EA and DICE are still supporting an older game title. This will be the 5th DLC for Battlefield 3 after four previous DLCs ( Back to Karkand, Close Quarters, Armored Kill and Aftermath) and is likely […]
In a teaser for the upcoming Crysis 3 that will be released on February 19, Crytek has just published a new video in their Crysis 3 “7 Wonders” series. The new Cause and Effect takes a ‘reverse time’ look at Prophet taking down a helicopter, using his composite bow to take down an enemy and then grabbing a machine gun to mow down a team of CELL soldiers sent to take him down (what else is new with CELL?).
Amid the excitement for new gaming hardware and consoles over CES 2013, it’s easy for news from the upcoming games department to get buried.

“Prophet prepares to take down an elite squad of CELL soldiers — but he’s not the only deadly hunter out there.
“Prowl the 7 Wonders with the Predator Bow, a powerful extension of the Nanosuit’s technological capabilities. From high-powered, piercing arrows capable of penetrating alien CEPH armor to the shocking force of electrical-tipped bolts that will leave your enemies drenched and shaking with fear, Crysis 3’s Predator Bow has a tactical solution for every situation encountered on the Nanodome killing fields.”
If you were one of those fans outraged by Bioshock Infinite’s box art, it’s time you put on a smile and say, All is forgiven.

“Prophet returns to a New York City in lockdown, a broken metropolis entombed inside the CELL Corporation’s Nanodome, in this all new video directed by Albert Hughes.
“The ‘Liberty Dome’ has transformed much of New York City into an urban rainforest, teaming with colossal trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers. The dangers of this new environment will demand advanced weaponry and tactics– luckily the Nanosuit is more than up to the task of hunting down Prophet’s enemies in Crysis 3.”
The narrator (presumably main protagonist Artyom) tells us about the gifts in life, despite how dark and wrecked the world has become. The trailer offers a glimpse of what life is in the metros – a child drawing on the ground, hand shadows for entertainment – and what lurks within the shadows on the walls. The first half is sad and slow-paced, but as it progresses, mutant creatures leap into the scene and attack humans who have strayed too far […]
