As a Result, only about 100 people worked on the game development During Its 23 months.  [b] Was The game’s budget about $ 66 million. 
Crysis 2 Was criticised for abandoning the island setting of the original Crysis.  The studio Decided to recreate New York City and set the game in a post-Apocalyptic environment.  To do this, the company Introduced a concept called “Nanodome”, a dome set up by CELL to isolate New York City, Which HAD fallen to ruins over the years. Plants have grown significantly, leading to an environment that is a mix between an urban environment and the jungle setting of the past two games.  The Decision Was Made To create this environment as the team wanted to stay away from typical urban war field shown in other games of the genre Same.   Instead of having abandoned a rainforest in the Wasteland, the Nanodome is used to fix the shape of the forest, and Crytek hoped That It would define the atmosphere and the narrative of the game. 
The game’s main protagonist is Prophet, a WHO HAD nanosuit Previously holder appeared in Crysis and Crysis 2. He returns in Crysis 3 Crytek nor considered Him as the Most WHO complex character has the longest heritage in the series. When Designing Him, the team Took inspiration from the protagonist of District 9.  Psycho from the original Crysis and Crysis Warhead returns as Prophet’s companion.  The game revolves around attempting to redeem Prophet Himself by taking revenge after bis Finding Former squad members are dead.   The story explores the themes of redemption and revenge as well as the relationship between humans and technology.  Mike Read, the game’s producer, summed up the game calling it “humane”.  Unlikely Crysis 2’s protagonist Alcatraz WHO does not speak throughou the game, Prophet is voiced in Crysis 3 in an Effort to deliver more emotional connection.  The company made use of performance capture to record actor’s performance, body Movements and facial expressions. According to Read, this helps the company to create a more affecting and emotional story. This wasn’t done in the previous games due to technological Limitations.
Unlikely the original Crysis, Which gives players more freedom to explore, Crysis 2 Was criticized for being too linear.  As a Result, in Developing the game’s campaign, Crytek attempted to integrate the two Major Aspects of the previous installments, the freedom Given in the original Crysis and the linearity of Crysis 2 on Despite not being as open as the first half of Crysis, maps are significantly larger in this game than in previous installments. Several Were Preserved linear segments.  Crytek Referred to the game’s map as “action bubbles” Which would not necessarily fix small players in a soft place to move around Allows bMerI say.  Was Preserved linearity even considered having developers present segments Could Such help players to experience “epic” moments and “massive Michael Bay” moments.   Crytek hoped by opening up levels That Could They give players a sense of control, say allowing to plan and execute strategy.  The game’s seven levels Were Developed simultaneously, and the focus phrases of gameplay, art and optimization of a level Was about one to two weeks. 
Another theme is featured in the game “hunt” and, as a Result, Many Were weapons built around the concept. The studio wanted to stay away from typical weapon design and did not want a weapon to simply differentiate between Crysis 3 and Crysis 2. The team Aimed to use weapons to create narrative. The game features a compound bow Which is Reminiscene of a weapon That Often a hunter uses. The game’s gameplay is built based on three Pillars, access, adapt, and attack.  Players are tasked to do detect Often, spot, and to learn Their Enemies’ behaviors and Patterns Before attacking. With the bow, players are Encouraged to play the game stealthily, Extending the game’s combat. A new feature called “hacking” Was Developer. According to Crytek, plays a huge role hacking throughou the game.  The game’s combat Was Also made more fast-paced than that of Its predecessors.

It utilizes Some of the newest features of CryEngine 3, Such as volumetric fog shadows, dynamic Improved vegetation, dynamic Caustics, area Improved Diffuse lighting and shadows.  After Crysis 2 Received Some criticism from PC gamers Because of the design the sacrifice made due to the Limitations of the older console hardware, Crytek responded That the PC version of Crysis 3 Will figuratively “melt down PCs” due to Its high System Requirements. [36 ] The PC version of the game required a DirectX 11 compatible video card and operating system.  Similar to Crysis 2, the game is a multi-platform title, and Crytek considered the development of the game’s console version a huge Obstacle They HAD to “rip the engine to pieces” so as to get the game running on the console. 
The multiplayer portion of the game created by Crytek UK Was. It was designed to Improve the Efficiency of the Nanosuit in an online environment. In an Effort to create memorable maps, the team Designed routes eu That Can only discovered after a player’s first playthrough. That Crytek UK hoped Would this approach to Become help players more immersed in the game’s universe. The Hunter mode, Introduced in this game, originated from a TimeSplitters’s Gladiator mode.  The Decision to make energy sprint separated from the nanosuit Was energy due to the development team’s desire to create larger levels, and help players to navigate the map in a faster way. 
The game’s music Was Composed by Borislav Slavov, WHO HAD Previously led the development of Crysis 2 soundtrack New Was Composed music for the game, While Some other themes from the past installments Were rearranged. The theme of the game’s music is changed so as to fit the game’s post-Apocalyptic setting.  The game’s music is dynamic and is Designed to Reflect players’ gameplay style. As a Result, When players use a radical approach to complete missions, more exciting background music played Will Be. In contrast, When players are playing stealthily, the background music Will Be relatively calmer and quieter.
