Nanosuit enthusiasts should mark their calendars for January 29 as EA
have announced that the Crysis 3
multiplayer beta will launch for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC. In the upcoming beta, players will be able to utilize the nanosuit to its full extent in two team-based modes and maps set in the urban jungle of New York City. The beta will be active for two weeks leading up to the game's release on February 19 in North America and February 21 in Europe. The beta's features will entail:
In Crash Site, players must secure and defend specific locations, earning points along the way for kills and their ability to hold those locations. The exciting, all-new Hunter mode makes its debut in Crysis 3. This asymmetrical, time based 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 two of the game’s twelve visually stunning maps, Airport and Museum. 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.
