At the moment, I have completed 2 maps. Leveldesign of the third map is also nearly finished, but there is still a lot to do for missionobjectives, AI, Cutscenes etc.

(If you want me to upload the images to the crydev server due to dead links, I'll do so, but abload.de usually keeps the images very long and makes it much easier.)
Here are some screens showing weapon skins and Korean special forces (last one edited with photoshop):
Here is the trailer. I finished it just a week ago. As I saw, Thomy has already posted the trailer in his CryeDev blog Thanks for that!
In the trailer you can see parts of the leveldesign and some gameplay elements. All footage shown after 1:08 is taken directly from crysis, except some lens flare and slight color correction effects i made in after effects.

As you might have noticed, you can hear some information about the background story. If you want to read more about that, here's the
To explain the events in the game and to give them a bit more depht, I wrote a little background story for NuclearCataclysm. Of course it isn't perfect. Maybe I'll write more in the future
During the game, you will clear up many secrets concerning the story.
Hope the translation is correct, I'm still learning
After the nuclear crisis in Japan in 2011 the US government decided to start the development of a new weaponthat was supposed to have the explosive power of an atomic bomb, but sets just a small amount of atomic radiation free to prevent late sequels in the target area. The project, which was judged as top secret, was startet in early 2012 and got the name "PNWMD".
But because you can't reach the explosive power of a nuke with conventional methods, the scientists picked up the principle of the atomic bomb, but were believing they could reduce the amount of emitted radiation by adding some special substances. Five years later, in summer 2017, the development team believed they made a first breakthrough and finished two prototypes. In the conviction, that the bomb will set only a very small amount of radiation free, the government approved a top secret weapon test in Nevada in fall 2017. On October, the 14th 2017, the first prototype was fired. But the results were catastrophic: The explosion power was as big as the power of a nuke, but the emitted radiaton was also many times over the amount of a normal atomic bomb. Many operators and scientists got ill in the following months. After the incident became public, many human rights and environmental protection organisations interposed; The US stood shortly before loosing its face. To keep their international esteem, the US admitted the existence of the project, but called the weapon test an accident and claimed, there is no other prototype. The project was stopped officially.
But in 2018, a former worker published information about the second prototype. The government decided to send the second prototype abroad and modified an ohio-class nuclear submarine to carry the bomb. On April the 18th 2018, the submarine put to sea. But two days later, the submarine vanished from the radar. There are no informations about that incident. The investigations were stopped at the end of 2019.
In the middle of 2020, the NASA noticed slightly increased radiation above some small islands in North Korea. After some investigations, several hints came up, showing that North Korea could be responsible for the missing submarine.
Because the political climate between North Korea and the USA got worse, the USA feared an attack with the PNWMD-prototype. This would not only cause the death of hundreds of thousand people, but also the loss of the USA's international esteem. Due to that, the US army decided to send a recon team to North Korea to look for the missing bomb.
At the moment, I can't (and I dont want) determine a final release date. But I think I can release the map on summer this year.
