On January 29, Crytek will issue an open invitation to sample the multiplayer side of Crysis 3
. This two-week affair will conclude on February 12, giving PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 players a chance to sample two modes and two maps ahead of Crysis 3
's February 19 launch.
The game modes in question are Crash Site, a team-based mode where players fight to capture and defend specifically marked location on the map for points, and Hunter
, an asymmetrical mode where two cloaked guys with bows stalk and kill visible CELL soldiers – once a CELL soldier is killed, he respawns on the other team as a Hunter.
EA says the beta will be available to all players, though we should note that does not override the need for a Gold subscription on Xbox Live.
