Crysis 3 Open Beta Begins Next Week

Posted on January 23, 2013 AT 07:38am

EA has announced that the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta will begin on all platforms next week.

The beta will be available to download from January 29 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Players will be limited to level 10 during the beta, but will be able to team up with friends and customize their characters with different weapons, attachments, and Nanosuit modules. Two modes and maps will be available during the beta:

Game Modes:

Hunter Mode:

This multiplayer game mode is all about 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!

Beta Maps:

Museum - Roam the dark Ruins of Musem in downtown Manhattan and use the verticality to your advantage.

Airport – Close to the financial district, nature has taken over buildings and planes in this open fields area.
