Crytek and EA have announced a partnership with filmmaker Albert Hughes to produce an online video series inspired by Crysis 3 entitled, “The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3”.
The cinematic series will “set the stage for this latest installment in the Crysis series” and introduce weapons, enemies, and gameplay features new to the franchise.
“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,” stated Hughes. “The challenge of producing something intensely human without ever seeing a human on screen was incredibly compelling.”
Hughes’ film credits include Dead Presidents, From Hell and Book of Eli and was ” intimately involved” with the development team at Crytek. Hughes helped write the scripts, storyboards and shot plans for each video which uses in-game assets.
The debut episode of “The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3” entitled “Hell of a Town” will debut on December 12. A teaser for the series is posted below.
Crysis 3 is out in February for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
