Crytek and EA have announced a public beta for Crysis 3
The beta will be available for 2 weeks starting this Tuesday (January 29th). It will feature two team-based modes
- Crash Site: Players must secure and defend specific locations, earning points along the way for kills and their ability to hold those locations.
- Hunter mode: This time based mode pits two players vs. ten (two vs. 14 on PC) in matches that begin with two cloaked hunters stalking 10 opposing CELL troopers. Armed only with enhanced Nanosuits and the lethal Predator bow, hunters must systematically stalk and kill the CELL operatives, who in turn must work together as a team as they fight to stay alive before the round ends. The twist is that once a CELL trooper is killed, that player will then respawn as a hunter, joining the others in their attempt to eliminate the remaining CELL operatives before the clock strikes zero.
as well as two maps, Airport and Museum, which will give players an opportunity to master the superpowers of the Nanosuit.
Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek said “We have listened closely to our fans and have evolved the multiplayer in Crysis 3 by adding a host of new gameplay features including the unique Hunter mode, deadly new weapons like the Predator bow, deeper loadout and unlock options, enhanced upgrade systems and more social features like the New York Feed. Top it all off with the ultimate weapon in the Nanosuit and you have a multiplayer experience that is unlike anything else out there.”
The Crysis 3 beta starts January 29th until February 12th on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC with the full game launching on February 22nd.
