Crysis 3 Multiplayer Preview Shines, Even In AlphaNormally we don't cover games that are still in alpha. While beta coverage is typically a good example of how final gameplay is shaping up, alpha is a time when major design elements are still in flux. We're making an exception for Crysis 3's recent multiplayer test, however, to highlight just how gorgeous the game already is...

I'll probably buy this when it comes out.

Thanks for the pics Marco, really does have some killer detail.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I REALLY hope that they do make this game super demanding.

It will push the limits of the hardware we have, and make people desire more power.

It'll push people Like intel, AMD, and Nvidia to make better hardware, so that once again, the most popular Question... Will be:

"But can it run Crysis?"

PC Specs:

  • AMD Athlon 64 x2 6400+  Cooled by a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (push-pull)
  • 2GB DDR2
  • MSI Radeon HD 6450 2GB
  • Stock Dell motherboard
  • 250Gb HDD
  • XFX Pro Core edition 650W PSU
  • Stock Dell inspiron case

I wish these images were higher res, but I already know the capabilities of CryEngine. I wish I had a rig that could run this thing!

I have never played any of the Crysis games but watched my son play the last one on the XBOX360 and I really like the game play. I will be getting it and the new one when it comes out for my PC. I can play shooting games on the consoles very well so all of the shootem games are for the PC and racing for my PS3 and XBOX360.

I have a rig just good enough to play it. I have the Alpha and it's ok. The graphics and gameplay is decent but never been too big of the Crysis multiplayer. The same classes running around in the same suits and they don't look any different except for colors (Blue and Red,

Wow, now this one looks like ubisoft. I didn't think Crysis 2 had that "shine" that usually accompanies anything ubisoft puts their golden hands on.

Is Far Cry 3 running on the same engine Crysis 3 will use?  I've seen some FC3 gameplay videos and it is one of the most gorgeous games I have ever seen, and the rig running it was very similar to my mid-range desktop.  Crytek has really been improving their programming, overcoming the "but can it run Crysis" stigma while still keeping some of the best visuals this gen.

No Ubisoft bought the rights to Far Cry after the first game, along with the use of a modified CryEngine2 called Dunia. Far Cry 3 is beautiful artistically because Ubi has a lot of talented artists. But technically Far Cry 3 on PC isn't that technically impressive. Textures are kinda weak as well as post effects. Crysis 3 is going to make me buy a second GTX 670 to max it out, from the Beta I've been playing it is going to be one gorgeous game. Single player is going to be much more impressive than multi as well
