Crysis 3 gets 20 minute interactive gameplay video

Crytek and Electronic Arts have released a new Crysis 3 gameplay video, but this one isn't like the run-of-the-mill gameplay trailers we're used to. You see, not only is this trailer nearly 20 minutes long, but it's also interactive. Truth be told, it's more of a demo than it is a trailer, as it gives us a nice extended look at the multiple ways to play through Crysis 3.

Now, before you get too excited, we have to warn you that the video posted below isn't "interactive" in the most exciting sense. At a couple of points throughout the video, you're asked to choose between a stealth approach and a "kill everything very loudly" approach for Prophet, the game's main character. So, since you're being taken to different parts of the video, the demo isn't truly 18 minutes and 52 seconds long, but watching the whole thing will let you see both the stealth and armor approaches to combat. Still, it's a pretty cool video, so check it out below.

The gameplay itself looks pretty great, provided you were a fan of Crysis 2. There are indeed many similarities to be found between Crysis 2 and Crysis 3, but depending on who ask, that may not be a bad thing. If you're looking forward to Crysis 3, we're sorry to say that you've got quite a wait ahead of you, as EA and Crytek aren't planning to launch this bad boy until February 2013. When it does arrive, it'll be available on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, just like its predecessor.
