The Crysis 3 web series from Electronic Arts and Crytek, titled The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3, is now officially live on the Internet. As we learned last week, the multi-part series is produced and directed by Albert Hughes, one half of the sibling filmmaker duo behind modern classics like Menace II Society and Dead Presidents.
The first episode, One Hell of a Town, sets up the basic story of Crysis 3 in the opening moments before shifting gears to a mixture of HUD-less gameplay and various establishing shots. "Pretty" is the operative word here, with the HD footage no doubt being processed by some monolithic beast of a gaming PC.
It's not clear if this first episode is highlighting the "wonder" of beautiful visuals or multi-faceted combat. Hopefully we'll see more of a common thread emerge as this week's second episode arrives.
