Reminder: Crysis 3 Open Beta Begins Today
A quick reminder that the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta is open today to all. As long as you have a PC with Origin, a PS3 or an 360(with a Gold subscription) you can download and enter the beta right now.
Last week we gave you the rundown of what to expect in the beta so check it out before you jump in. Don't worry if you are busy though, as the beta runs until February 12 but get in now if you want to be one of the first to play the game.
Here's a quick reminder of the modes in the beta:
- Hunter Mode: 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!
