Crysis 3 is going back to the jungle very soon, as EA and Crytek have announced The Lost Island multiplayer DLC. It takes players near Ling Shan, the setting of the first game, and introduces four new maps, two new modes, and two new weapons. Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli calls it a return to the series' "spiritual roots," and it should be something welcome for fans yearning to escape the concrete jungle of New York.
Yerli had the following to say on the DLC:
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.
An alien presence has been detected on a small island about 200 miles away from Ling Shan, with a rebel force sent to destroy the "unknown extraterrestial entity." A CELL team has also been sent in to investigate and grab the alien "by any means necessary," and should set the stage for a rather explosive multiplayer showdown.
Crysis 3: The Lost Island is set to arrive on June 4 for the PC, PS3, and 360, and It'll set gamers back $14.99.
