EA has today confirmed the existence of Crysis 3 after reports of the game being listed in the EA Origin Store and has also said it plans to deliver details on April 16th.

The best kept secret in shooters just can’t be contained. Stay tuned for more information on April 16.”

No other details are known aside from the speculation that the game will be based in New York once again, but with a twist. A natural disaster has struck and the city has been retaken over by the natural elements turning the city into a urban jungle. Having said this, it will allow the developers to go back to a more open environment for the game to take place in. When more details come in make sure to check back here!

Crysis 2 released only a year ago, with a downloadable version of the original, via PSN and XBLA, releasing 6 months later. Is the announcement, while not yet official, of Crysis 3 coming a little prematurely? Leave your comments below!

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

 on

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
