Two alternative takes on the action genre, both featuring main characters augmented by mechanical improvements: “Crysis 3” plunges players into an overgrown, Amazonian New York, fighting peculiar alien life forms, while “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance” turns its parent series from stealthy, almost anti-war thriller into a frenetic slice-’em-up.

Crysis’ playable, rubbery nano-fellow is left maximum screwed by the final scenes of the latest Crysis 3 trailer, which strand him in space with nothing to shoot. If his suit has Twitter, he can @mentionCommander Chris Hadfield for a pick-up, otherwise he’ll be forced to latch on to a passing alien mothership and earn a shot at obliterating the alien menace for good.

It looks like there may be an interstellar finale in store, but much of the game will be about shooting men ‘n mechs on Earth. You’ll get plenty of that from the first four minutes of the latest trailer, which you’ll find below.

Crysis 3 is out next week, on February 19 in the US, February 21 in Australia, and February 22 in Europe.

Game4u has announced the midnight launch for Electronic Arts’ upcoming sci-fi shooter, Crysis 3, at its flagship store at Mega Mall, Andheri West, Mumbai and at MGF Metropolis in Gurgaon. The game will be released on February 22 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.  The launch starts on February 21 at 11.30 p.m.

Game4u stores will re-open at midnight for ardent fans. Customers who have pre-ordered the game through Game4u can also pick up their pre-order freebies along with the game. The pre-order for the PC version of the game include the Hunter Edition of the game, the Stalker and Brawler DLC packs, a T-shirt, a free copy of Crysis on digital download for Team Elite members, and 50 percent off on Crysis 2, Dead Space 2, Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Mass Effect 3 in the downloads4u catalogue.

The PlayStation 3’s pre-order bonus include the Hunter edition of the game along with the Stalker and Brawler DLC packs, a T-shirt, and a free copy of Crysis through digital download for Team Elite members. The Xbox 360 pre-orders just get a t-shirt and the Hunter edition for now. The DLC for the Xbox 360 is yet to be confirmed. The first customer to get a copy of the game will also get a “first to own” certificate from Game4u.

Crysis 3 is all set to be one of the biggest games of the year. If you want to see what the game has to offer, you can check out the ongoing multiplayer beta on PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and Origin.

As you can see from our preview, we were pretty impressed by the multiplayer of the game. It essentially works as a ‘multiplayer demo’, as it is designed to give you a taste of the Crysis 3 multiplayer component. Developers will also be able to use your feedback to do away with any bugs in the game. You can level up to rank 10, and customise your Nanosuit with different weapons, attachments, and suit modules.

Crash Site is Crytek’s take on Team Fortress Classic’s Control Point mode, which essentially involves opposing teams battling for dominion over key areas on the map. It’s a lot like Dominion mode from Call of Duty games or Control Point maps from Team Fortress 2. The mode feels interesting, though, because every couple of minutes, the control point shifts from one location to another, which invariably leads to a race between the teams to get there. The team with the most points wins.

While it sounds pretty generic, there’s a great deal of team-work needed and will probably end up being the second-most played game mode once Crysis 3 is out, with the first being the very obvious Team Deathmatch.

Hunter is one of the more unique game modes you’ll find in a multiplayer FPS. Two players take on the role of the Hunter—think Predator—while others are survivors. The aim of the Hunters is to take out the survivors one-by-one in a 2-minute time limit.

The hunters have permanent cloaking and use the Hunter Bow. The survivors just have to survive the two-minutes. The twist is that when a hunter takes out a survivor, the survivor respawns as a hunter and has to aid the other hunters.
