Crysis 3: Menace II Society director making cinematic video series

Will showcase the game's visuals, weapons, environments and more

Albert Hughes, the co-director of films such as Menace II Society, Dead Presidents, From Hell and Book of Eli, is producing a cinematic video series for Crysis 3.


Entitled 'The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3', the cinematic shorts will set the stage for the latest entry in the science fiction FPS series, introducing features like weapons, enemies and environments.

The debut episode, 'Hell of a Town', will be released on December 12, 2012, and you can watch a teaser trailer below.

Filmmaker Hughes said: "When EA and Crytek approached me about being involved in creating The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3 video series, I liked the idea of creating emotional stories using only computer generated images.

"The challenge of producing something intensely human without ever seeing a human on screen was incredibly compelling, and the technology of the CryEngine that Crytek developed enabled me to do that and venture into a completely unique medium of storytelling."

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli added: "The goal with the video series is to reveal the incredible world we have been building for Crysis 3. We've worked closely with Albert on this project and think that the 7 Wonders series will show the leaps and bounds that Crysis 3 is making over its predecessors."
