The first downloadable content expansion pack for Crysis 3 will take players out of the city and into the tropics. Electronic Arts and Crytek announced the Crysis 3: The Lost Island multiplayer expansion today, due to launch June 4 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC for $15.
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," Yerli said. "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."
Crysis 3: The Lost Island focuses on an alien presence that has been discovered on a small island in the Philippines 200 miles from Ling Shan. A band of rebel forces have been sent to the island to destroy the "unknown extraterrestrial entity" before a CELL team can obtain it "by any means necessary."
Yesterday, Crytek teased that it would make a "major" announcement today.
