War is over and we have lost. Not only have we lost New York city but the city itself has lost it’s identity. What is left in the wake of our oppressors is a veritable urban jungle–quite literally, where the former steel clad sky scrapers are now blanketed in a thick dense coat of living viridescence. However, all is not lost–so long as hero is willing to step and shine–and also don the badass Nanosuit so much ass-kicking can be wrought.

The stage has been set. I would happily go into more detail but why read when you can frag for yourself? Electronic Arts and Crytek are offering you, your very own Nanosuit to try before you buy. That means it’s “maximum” open beta time and begins tomorrow January 29th. You won’t get to spend maximum time with the single player. This is soley to let you folks grab some friends and stomp around in 2-different multiplayer modes as well as 2-maps. The game will feature 8-total upon release.

The modes are Crash Site, a carry over from the previous Crysis game and a new Hunter Mode.

Nvidia would also like to prepare you for coming battle. They have release a new Beta driver set specifically designed for Crysis 3 (among other improvements) when using one of their supported GeForce video cards.

Crysis 3 will upon us all on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC this February 19th.
