Capcom Releases Dino Crisis 3SUNNYVALE, Calif. — September 16, 2003 — Capcom today announced the release of Dino Crisis 3, a futuristic outer space action adventure game for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft®. Dino Crisis 3 is the next blockbuster in the acclaimed series that has sold more than four million units worldwide. Set in the year 2548, Dino Crisis 3 players venture to the outer limits of the universe where evolved dinosaurs await. Join a special operatives group as they investigate the reemergence of a forgotten spaceship and the mysteries that it holds. Dino Crisis 3 carries an “M” rating for mature audiences from the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) and is now available at retailers across North America. Dino Crisis 3 begins with the discovery of the gigantic spaceship “Ozymandius” that has suddenly re-emerged after disappearing for 300 years and is now headed towards earth. Players assume the role of Patrick or Sonya, members of an intergalactic marine group called SOAR (Special Operations And Reconnaissance), who are sent by the government to investigate and procure any possible survivors aboard the outpost. As Patrick and the agents infiltrate the spaceship, they come upon a horrific scene of ravenous dinosaurs inhabiting the spaceship. Now it’s a life and death struggle against massive beasts as they float through the dark recesses of space. Despite this unnerving situation, they must cautiously proceed with their mission to find out the mysteries of the colony ship and stop it from returning to Earth. Equipped with hyper-speed booster units, players will explore and maneuver quickly throughout the massive polygonal environments to collect objects, solve puzzles and achieve their objectives. This new type of control is a break from anything done before in the Dino Crisis series. It offers new challenges and more freedom of movement. Gamers will now be fully armed with futuristic artillery including WASPs, drones that lock-on to an enemy and automatically begin a deadly barrage of fire, to ward off the ravenous dinosaurs. Visually, Capcom has focused its attention on achieving a sense of scale and solidifying the craft’s detail.
