Electronic Arts and Crytek have announced the start of the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta which 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 also showcases 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. A new multiplayer movie is now locally mirrored.
