Electronic Arts and Crytek have released a new Crysis 3 video, this time showcasing the open multiplayer beta scheduled to start tomorrow, January 29th, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. The Crysis 3 multiplayer beta will be available for two weeks and includes two team-based modes and two maps.
In the Crash Site mode, players must secure and defend specific locations, earning points along the way for kills and their ability to hold those locations. The all-new Hunter mode pits two players vs. ten (two vs. 14 on PC) in matches that begin with two cloaked hunters stalking 10 opposing CELL troopers. Armed only with enhanced Nanosuits and the lethal Predator bow, hunters must systematically stalk and kill the CELL operatives, who in turn must work together as a team as they fight to stay alive before the round ends. The twist is that once a CELL trooper is killed, that player will then respawn as a hunter, joining the others in their attempt to eliminate the remaining CELL operatives before the clock strikes zero.
The Crysis 3 multiplayer beta will also showcase the Airport and Museum maps. Both will provide players a taste of the lush, urban rainforest and tactical sandbox that awaits them under the Liberty Dome of New York City.
