Electronic Arts has announced that Crysis 3 will begin a two-week open multiplayer beta on January 29. Available for 360, PC, and PS3, the beta will feature two maps, Airport and Museum, and two team-based modes, including the new Hunter mode. Hunter will pit players against one another as two hunters battle a squad of Cell troopers (10 on console and 14 on PC). The hunters only have access to their powers and Predator bows, though defeated Cell troopers will fill their ranks as respawned hunters. The beta will also sport the new in-game social media feed dubbed New York Feed. The feed will not only broadcast the player’s accomplishments to other readers but also offer dynamic challenges.
Crysis 3 will be on store shelves February 19 for 360, PC, and PS3. All pre-orders will be upgraded to the Hunter Edition, which will include a download voucher for the original Crysis as well as several multiplayer bonuses: instant access to the Predator bow plus attachments and a unique skin, the Hunter Nanosuit module, an XP boost up to level 5, and three dog tags.
Players take on the role of ‘Prophet’ as he returns to New York only to discover that the city has been encased in a Nanodome created by the corrupt Cell Corporation. This dangerous new world demands advanced weapons and tactics, including the Nanosuit. Equipped with superhuman powers including cloaking, armor and enhanced visor abilities, the Nanosuit is the ultimate tool that allows players to assess, adapt and attack whatever the 7 Wonders throws at them. In addition to the Nanosuit, players will wield the powerful Predator bow and devastating alien weaponry to become the deadliest hunter on the planet.
