Crysis 3 Trailer – What’s the Song?

ZZ top Eliminator
Warner Brothers

The trailer for the much-anticipated new videogame Crysis 3 is set to the familiar strains of ZZ Top‘s ‘Sharp Dressed Man,’ from their 1983 album ‘Eliminator.’

Instead of the clean shirt and new shoes Billy Gibbons sings about, it seems the song was chosen as a clever reference to the sleek new armor worn by ‘Crysis’ hero Prophet, who in this game is returning to New York City in search of revenge on the evil C.E.L.L. corporation — it’s always an evil corporation, isn’t it? — 24 years after the events of ‘Cyrsis 2.’

‘Crysis 3′ hits stores Feb. 19, and you can learn everything there is to know about it from our friends over at Arcade Sushi. ZZ Top are currently on tour in support of their 2012 album ‘La Futura,’ and will spend March in Australia performing alongside Guns N’ Roses.
