For the first time in the history of SimCity, your decisions could have long-lasting repercussions that could extend beyond your city’s limits.  Players will also be addressing real global challenges (such as climate change, the search for renewable resources and natural disasters) for the first time. Another first includes non-linear curved roads and zoning areas that can conform to different road types.

The upcoming game is set in 2047 (24 years after Crysis 2). In Crysis 3 you take on the role of Prophet as he returns to New York and discovers that the city has been encased in a giant Nano dome (created by the corrupt Cell Corporation).

In Crysis 3, the New York City Liberty Dome is a veritable urban rainforest teeming with overgrown trees, dense swamp lands and raging rivers. Within this dome seven treacherous environments have become known as the Seven Wonders.

Prophet goes on a revenge mission after uncovering the truth behind Cell Corporation’s motives for building the quarantined Nano domes. Alien Ceph are lurking around almost every corner, human enemies are on the attack and nobody is truly safe in the path of Prophet’s vengeance.

Lara Croft and many other survivors are stranded on an isolated tropical island in the Dragon’s Triangle.

Lara Croft has to find food and water to survive and fight off the dangerous animal inhabitants of the island, whilst trying to trace the other survivors. Croft is forced to harden her against killing people in order to fight a group of mercenaries who want to kill her and her companions.
