EA has announced a new multiplayer DLC set for Crysis 3. Titled The Lost Island, players will be able to take on four new maps, and two additional multiplayer modes (Frenzy and Possession), along with new weapons to choose from.
“In Crysis 3: The Lost Island, traces of a mysterious alien presence have been discovered on a small island in the Philippines 200 miles from Ling Shan. Rebel forces have been dispatched to destroy this unknown extraterrestrial entity before an elite CELL team has the chance to obtain it… by any means necessary.”
This DLC shows a lot of emphasis on an open environment setting, much like the first Crysis. CEO of Crytek, Cevat Yerli, states that “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.”
The Lost Island DLC comes out on 5 June for Xbox 360 for 1200 Microsoft points, as well as for PlayStation 3 and PC for $23.95. We’ve also uploaded some amazing screenshots below. Let us know what you think!
