New York City has been encased in a giant Nanodome created by C.E.L.L. (Crynet Enforcement & Local Logistics) that has isloated New York City’s thick vegetation, overgrown trees, dense swamplands and raging rivers from the rest of the world. Before the dome was erected into place citizens were told it would serve to protect the city’s population from the Ceph invasion, but really it was all apart of C.E.L.L.’s plan for global domination. In Crysis 3 Prophet is said to be on a mission of “revenge” against the C.E.L.L after uncovering the truth behind their motives for building the Nanodome.
