Today Crytek has announced when players' can get their hands on the multiplayer beta for Crysis 3. Gear up for Crysis 3 multiplayer as the multiplayer is set to start next week on January 29, 2013. The multiplayer beta will start on January 29, 2013 and will end on February 12, 2013. In the beta you will only be able to progress to level 10 sadly, but you will get to try out the different weapons, attachments, and suit modules. The beta will give players' access to two different game modes, which are Hunter Mode and Crash Site Mode. Details on the two modes can be seen down below. Finally Crytek has also released a new trailer to go along with this news.
The two game modes:
Hunter Mode:This multiplayer game mode is all about the survival of the fittest. There are two teams, initially comprised of two permanently cloaked “Hunters”, and up to fourteen CELL troopers awaiting extraction. Each trooper slain respawns on the Hunter team to prey on their former allies, building to a frenetic climax. If any of the troopers survive the round, the hunters lose. Whichever way you play, Hunter Mode delivers a heart-pounding test of strategy and survival.
Crash Site Mode:
This multiplayer game mode is the ultimate King of the Hill type experience. An Alien dropship deploys a pod at random around the map. Players on each team must remain near the dropped pod in order to capture the zone and accumulate points. Each alien pod holds two shields players can utilize defensively as weapons. In addition, each Crash Site map will have a “Pinger”, a CEPH-constructed walking weapon of mass destruction. But be careful, other players can hijack the Pinger while you’re inside of it!
These modes can be played on two maps: Museum, which Crytek describes as "Roam the dark Ruins of Musem in downtown Manhattan and use the verticality to your advantage;" and Aiport, where "Close to the financial district, nature has taken over buildings and planes in this open fields area."
