Crysis 3 beta starts today - tutorial video released

Postby solamon77 » 29 Jan 2013, 10:58

Seems kind of late for a beta to have any meaningful impact on the game. If it's releasing in under 3 weeks, how much time do they really have to take feedback into account, modify the game, get all the discs pressed, and ship them out. Maybe instead of calling it a beta it should be called a demo.

Well, I would expect it to be a test on their servers or for stuff their end. Also, any fixes can be downloaded in a patch.

I remember being on the Crysis 1 multiplayer beta and one of the Devs coming on to ask what people thought. He played for a good hour giving us various tactics to try and gameplay tips.

Do developers still do that? It was a really cool experience.

All true, but you're ruining his moaning session, which is all he cares about. Think he said exactly same thing elsewhere and people told him exactly same
