We've been watching with some interest the progress of Crysis 3 - in particular the multiplayer aspect, as the developers have been talking a lot about how they're keen to make up for some of the online shortfalls of Crysis 2 and have addressed several of the key issues that affected the uptake of the game.
So we're especially excited to be able to offer some keys to the multiplayer alpha, giving PC gamers the first chance to get a taste of the latest instance in this series - known to push the boundaries of graphics on the PC.
There are local servers up and running for this - one of the few games that is making dedicated servers available at launch, because EA really see the benefits of this programme in titles like Battlefield 3 - so it is great news for Australians who can play with confidence knowing they're going to be able to get on local servers.
The alpha trial kicks off on the 2nd of November, but you can pre-load the client now from Origin with one of these these tasty keys that we have courtesy of EA and Crytek! As usual, our regular users will get first dibs, so head over to our key page
and get in quick.
