The last episode of The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3 teases the end of the world and the Nanosuit's durability in space. "Suit integrity five percent," the Nanosuit states as it floats through space. Prior to that, the video illustrates the combined power of the Nanosuit and weapons. "Do you think whoever worked in this office between crunching numbers and worrying about missing yoga class ever thought that they would see the end of the world?" the narrator says as Prophet snipes alien Ceph from a gutted office. "Or for that matter, that this was one of the best sniper spots in the city?" Directed by Albert Huges (Menace 2 Society, From Hell), previous The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3 video series include "The Typhoon," "Hell of a Town," "The Hunt" and "Cause and Effect." Crysis 3 is...

The latest Crysis 3 trailer from publisher Electronic Arts, "The Hunt is On," sets some of the shooter's story cutscenes and action sequences to the Muse song "Liquid State," in advance of the game's launch later this month. Prophet, Crysis 3's Nanosuit-wearing protagonist, is shown stirring in a chamber during an assault on the area in which he's being held. When a gun-toting thug approaches Prophet, he busts out of captivity in style. The trailer proceeds through all kinds of explosions and other combat, whether with guns or crossbows. "Liquid State" is a track from Muse's most recent studio album, The 2nd Law, which was released last fall. Crytek's Crysis 3 will be available Feb. 19 on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Producer Mike Reed introduces viewers to two of the eight playable multiplayer modes in the latest Crysis 3 video. Hunter Mode is a survival-based competition.
