Crytek will release the first Crysis 3 DLC next week in the form of multiplayer pack The Lost Island. Boasting four new maps, two extra game modes and additional weapons, the DLC shifts the focus from the main game's New York City Liberty Dome setting to a small island in the Philippines 200 miles from Ling Shan, which played home to 2007’s Crysis and the following year’s Crysis Warhead.
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."
Available from Tuesday June 4, The Lost Island DLC will be priced at 1200 MSP (£10.28 / $14.40 / $15) on Xbox 360 and at $14.99 on PS3 and PC. Prior to the add-on pack’s official announcement, Xbox360Achievements reported that the DLC will introduce ten new Achievements, allowing players to boost their Gamerscore by 250.
If you’ve yet to read it, we said in our Crysis 3 review: “While not treading new ground for the FPS genre, Crysis 3 is a solid shooter that will keep you entertained through the campaign and long after with its addictive online modes.”
