Crytek made its appearance this year at gamescom with Crysis 3, introducing an all new multiplayer mode, Hunter. This mode places a team of two nanosuit hunters in the path of 14 cell troopers trying to make their way to an evacuation point. Only teamwork can save the troopers as the hunters attempt to pick them off one by one. In what may seem like a one-sided fight, it will be interesting to see how balanced the mode is when the game is released early next year. Check out the gamescom trailer below to see some gameplay footage.
Crytek also released a short trailer showing off some of the new technology and rendering features that will be used in the upcoming game. The new CryEngine 3 looks amazing and Crytek is touting that it’s bringing next gen graphics to today’s consoles. Some of the new lighting effects and rendering processes are truly gorgeous.
