In this particular instance, wants to furnish you with a competitive advantage in multiplayer in return for putting your money down early for the ‘’ of .

In it, you’ll get enough XP to instantly hit level five in multiplayer. You’ll also receive a predator bow, recon arrow and hunter nanosuit module; plus three ‘exclusive’ virtual dog tags. The ‘Hunter Edition’ appears to have crossover with other pre-order editions too, in the sense that you’ll get a copy of the original Crysis too (“while stocks last”, as they say).

Crysis 3 is coming in February 2013.
