Crysis 3 DLC: The Lost Island multiplayer pack revealed

New online battlegrounds and weapons incoming

Crytek will launch the first batch of Crysis 3 DLC next week in the form of The Lost Island multiplayer pack.

Featuring four new maps, two additional multiplayer modes (Frenzy and Possession) and fresh weapons, the DLC transports players from the main game's New York City Liberty Dome to a small island in the Philippines 200 miles from Ling Shan, where the original Crysis and Crysis Warhead take place.

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said: "The gameplay in the Crysis series has always been deeply connected to the unique environments in which the action takes place. 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 will be available from June 4 on Xbox 360 for 1200 MSP (£10.28 / €14.40 / $15), and on PS3 and PC priced at $14.99.

Achievements for the DLC leaked earlier in May.

Crysis 3 released in February, when Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli told us that his studio had 'big plans' for Crysis 3 DLC.

In our Crysis 3 review, we described the game as a "slick, enjoyable shooter".
