Crysis 3 multiplayer beta to kick off at the end of January

Crysis 3

By on January 24, 2013 at 8:26 pm

January 29 will be the day that the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta opens to all, announced EA today. It will run for two weeks on all platforms, and feature two different modes and two different maps.

Hunter mode means that two players spawn as permanently-cloaked aliens, with the other players spawning as vanilla human troopers waiting for extraction. Each time an alien kills, the trooper respawns as an alien to join in the hunt — if any humans are left alive at the end of the countdown, the humans win.

Meanwhile Crash Site mode, which will be familiar to alpha players, sees alien pods randomly landing across the map which must be captured to earn points. The pods can be ripped apart and used as weaponry or simply lobbed at people with super strength as a high-speed bludgeoning device (spoiler: this rules).

As with the alpha, games.on.net will have servers up and running — so mark the 29th in your calendars, and get ready!

We recently spoke to Crytek, where they claimed they won’t be held back by inferior console hardware this time around.
