Crysis 3 Multiplayer Beta starts next week
Beta contains two team-based modes and two maps
Electronic Arts and developer Crytek today announced an open multiplayer beta Crysis 3 will be available starting January 29th for all platforms.
The beta will run for two weeks and include two team-based modes and two maps (Airport and Museum), giving players an opportunity to master the superpowers of the Nanosuit.
In Crash Site, players must secure and defend specific locations, earning points along the way for kills and their ability to hold those locations. The asymmetrical, time based Hunter 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 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.
Also included in the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta is the New York Feed, a new in-game social feed that will showcase the accomplishments of gamers and their friends while offering dynamic challenges to complete. The multiplayer also contains new gameplay features including Rip & Throw, which allows players to interact with the elements of the environment to use as weapons or shields as well as the chance to control the Pinger, an alien tripod war machine.
Crysis 3 will be available in North America on February 19, 2013 and in Europe on February 21 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
