Want to play in the Crysis 3 alpha test? We’ve got 100 keys to give away!

Crysis 3 Key Giveaway

By on November 1, 2012 at 1:54 pm

UPDATE: All of today’s keys are gone! Please check back tomorrow, when we’ll have another 100 to give away!

UPDATE 2: The Crysis 3 alpha client files are now live on our file mirror! Click here for the details.

Right now, there’s three important things you need to know. The first is that games.on.net is giving away 100 keys to the Crysis 3 multiplayer alpha test, starting this Friday. The second thing is that we’ve got Crysis 3 multiplayer servers spun up and ready to go, just waiting for you to play on when Friday comes around.

The third thing — and possibly the most important — is that this is just the first key to give away. We’ve got another one coming up tomorrow, and more next week. So if you miss out, don’t worry — we’ve got you covered.

Stop talking and give me a key!

Fair enough! To get a key, all you need to do is head over to this forum thread right here and post a reply saying “Please give me a Crysis 3 key!”. That’s it! We’ll then send you a key via PM which you can redeem in Origin. Pre-loading is available as of now.

What are you still reading this for? Get cracking!

With Alpha being given out in such great numbers the MP component of Crysis 3 should be much more “cooked” this time around.


The preload is 2.5GB for those who are wondering.

Free key and Internode servers??? SOLD.

Will the alpha files be hosted here?


I really liked Crysis 2 multiplayer, when it wasn’t being ruined by hackers.





Only 94 posts so far, so there is like 6(ish) keys left!


Id love to be the person who had to send 100 PMs.
