Albert Hughes is producing an online video series inspired by upcoming sandbox shooter Crysis 3.
Hughes is the director of movies such as Menace II Society, Dead Presidents, American Pimp, From Hell and The Book of Eli and the series is entitled ‘The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3’.
The cinematic shorts, each created entirely using in-game assets powered by Crytek’s CryENGINE 3 technology, will introduce weapons, enemies, and gameplay features new to the Crysis franchise.
“When EA and Crytek approached me about being involved in creating ‘The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3’ video series, I liked the idea of creating emotional stories using only computer generated images,” says Hughes.
“The challenge of producing something intensely human without ever seeing a human on screen was incredibly compelling, and the technology of the CryENGINE that Crytek developed enabled me to do that and venture into a completely unique medium of storytelling.”
Hell of a Town, the first episode of ‘The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3’, will be released December 14.
Crysis 3 will be released in February 2013.
