If what we've seen from Crytek's upcoming Crysis 3
is any indication, we're in for an absolutely beautiful ride, despite the desolation of some of the game's locales. Whether it be through their "Seven Wonders of Crysis 3
" series, of which episodes one
, and four
have been released, or any of the other trailers they've released showing off the game's environments
, Crytek has done an impressive job showing of the title's virtual landscape.
If all of that has left you wanting to actually jump in and play the game, then you'll be pleased to know that Crytek has revealed several details for an upcoming open beta for Crysis 3
. If you'd like to be a part of it, head over to this site
to sign up. The beta, which will run from January 29th until February 12th, will allow you to rank up to level 10 (it is not noted if that will carry over), and will include the following modes and maps:
This multiplayer game mode is all about the survival of the fittest. There are two teams, initially comprised of two permanently cloaked “Hunters”, and up to fourteen CELL troopers awaiting extraction. Each trooper slain respawns on the Hunter team to prey on their former allies, building to a frenetic climax. If any of the troopers survive the round, the hunters lose. Whichever way you play, Hunter Mode delivers a heart-pounding test of strategy and survival.
Crash Site Mode
This multiplayer game mode is the ultimate King of the Hill type experience. An Alien dropship deploys a pod at random around the map. Players on each team must remain near the dropped pod in order to capture the zone and accumulate points. Each alien pod holds two shields players can utilize defensively as weapons. In addition, each Crash Site map will have a “Pinger”, a CEPH-constructed walking weapon of mass destruction. But be careful, other players can hijack the Pinger while you’re inside of it!
Roam the dark ruins of the museum that's located inf downtown Manhattan, and use the verticality to your advantage.
Close to the financial district, nature has taken over buildings and planes in this open fields area.
Now, this wouldn't be a Crysis 3
article if it didn't include pretty things to look at, so to satisfy that need, we have several screens and a video detailing the Nanosuit, the "most badass tactical combat armour ever designed."
will be available on February 19th, 2013 in North America, and February 22nd in Europe.
