'Far Cry 3' (ALL) Multiplayer Beta Coming This Summer, How To Get In

by Rainier on May 17, 2012 @ 9:39 p.m. PDT

With Far Cry 3, players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island.

In this savage paradise where lawlessness and violence are the only sure thing, players dictate how the story unfolds, from the battles they choose to fight to the allies or enemies they make along the way. As Jason Brody, players will slash, sneak, detonate and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of right and wrong.

In the multiplayer beta, up to sixteen simultaneous players per match will have the opportunity to choose from six playable classes and will able to experience online action within multiple maps and modes – including the innovative Firestorm mode. Dozens of weapons with hundreds of upgrades and customizations will also be available. Gameplay includes teamplay-focused experiences with support points and weapons, as well as the ability for all classes to revive fallen teammates. Zip-lining, combat sliding, psyche gas and barrel bombs are just some of the gameplay elements that can be experienced when playing.

The closed beta will be accessible by invitation only. With the purchase of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier from GameStop retail outlets on May 22, 2012, GameStop PowerUp Rewards members will receive an invitation code to be redeemed online. The site will be live on May 22 and validate the invitation code provided exclusively at GameStop. Players can choose to play on either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. Once the beta is live, players will be e-mailed their actual code which they will enter through their console of choice.

Consumers may also choose to enter via Facebook for a chance to win one of five hundred beta keys. Consumers that have entered on Facebook and won a beta code will receive an e-mail notification when the beta launches this summer.

Beta keys will also be distributed through Ubisoft social channels such as Ubi.com, farcrygame.com, along with partner social channels and community and media websites.
