The Crysis 3 beta has exceeded the expectations of Crytek, according to a post outlining the first patch’s change notes. Throughout the two week long beta, participants have provided some awesome suggestions on how to improve the Crysis 3 Multiplayer experience. Crytek have been actively listening, and will use what they have learned to improve the multiplayer gameplay experience even after the release of Crysis 3.
Here are the list of changes being implemented in the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta patch 1.0:
- “Marshall” shotgun’s damage tweaked
- “OGR” machine gun’s recoil reduced
- Predator Bow’s charge time reduced (from 1.3s to 1.0s)
- ADS sensitivity modified to improve weapon handling and aiming
- “Pinger” vehicle rotation speed increased
- AY69 submachine gun damage increased
- “Swarmer” kill streak reward damage increased
- “Swarmer” kill streak reward damage tweaked
The developer also plan on introducing additional changes to Crysis 3′s multiplayer, particularly to game balance and technical issues – which is good to hear.
It has been a bit concerning to learn that there has been an excessive amount of cheating in the Crysis 3 beta. Crytek plan on addressing this pre-launch by refining the anti-cheat system. One of the primary aims of the Crysis 3 beta, according to Crytek, is to “identify new exploits and refine detection to ensure false positives are discarded, to protect legitimate Crysis 3 players from being banned by mistake”, so it’s good to know that things are moving in the right direction with regards to cheating. However, you can do your bit to help stop cheaters by identifying them with screenshots on MyCrysis forums. Once the game launches, the Anti-Cheat detection will automatically ban cheaters and those looking to exploit the system.
So, go ahead and enjoy the last week of the Crysis 3 beta safe in the knowledge that everything is bein do to make the game as solid as possible, pre and post the February 19th launch date.
