CRYSIS 3: OPEN BETA HAS ENDED
Crysis 3 is out February 21st on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3
The Crysis 3 Beta has ended.
The beta is designed to give you a taste of the full Crysis 3 multiplayer experience, and help the development team collect your valuable feedback.
In the Crysis 3 Beta, you’ll be able to suit up, team up with your friends, level up to rank 10, and customize your Nanosuit with different weapons, attachments and suit modules.
There are two playable Beta Multiplayer Modes featured in the Beta:
This multiplayer game mode is all about 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!
Museum - Roam the dark Ruins of Musem in downtown Manhattan and use the verticality to your advantage.
Airport - Close to the financial district, nature has taken over buildings and planes in this open fields area.

New York Feed
The New York Feed is a new feature to Crysis 3 that allows you to select challenges that award you XP for completion. These are generated by your own performance, by your friends’ progress, and by the game when you are in squads game lobbies. They range from the simple, such as “get ’X’ kills in a match,” to feats of daring like “kill a Pinger with a rip and throw pole.” There are huge numbers of these and you can have up to four active at a time if you meet the requirements. When you beat a challenge it can generate challenges to your friends to try to best your accomplishment. It also gets published to the New York Feed for all your friends to see.

What are you doing to prevent cheating in the beta?
We’ve been working HARD on anti-cheat for Crysis 3 multiplayer as we understand it is a concern for the community. We’ve developed multiple solutions, and will be testing some of these counter-measures during the Open Beta in order to fine-tune them for the Crysis 3 launch. Player testing and feedback will be essential for us to create the best possible anti-cheat solution, and we’ll be closely monitoring what exploits do occur in order to correct them properly.
