Crytek has told us that it has a "big" plans for Crysis 3 DLC.
Asked if the studio has significant post-launch content in the pipeline, and whether it intends to offer anything above the industry standard multiplayer map packs and new game modes such as fresh campaign content or a co-operative experience, CEO Cevat Yerli told us:
"We're still exploring that. We have some plans in mind that we can't disclose yet, but we are going to wait a little bit to see how the beta's running and how the game does for the first few days. We do have a big plan to support it."
Publisher EA said last week that three million gamers downloaded the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta, and that Crysis 3 pre-orders are 35 per cent higher than Crysis 2's were back in 2011.
Ahead of this week's Crysis 3 release date of February 19 in the US and February 22 in Europe, Yerli also told us he believes "people will be astonished that next-gen launch titles from other companies might not be much different" from his studio's latest game.
