Crytek and Nvidia team up to give away free Crysis 3 alpha trial keys

By on October 31, 2012, 11:30 AM

Crytek has teamed up with Nvidia to give some lucky gamers a chance to help test Crysis 3. The game is still in alpha stage but that likely won’t deter most Nanosuit fans from participating. There’s only one catch, however: you need to act quickly as the keys are reportedly being offered on a first come, first serve basis.

Those interested in participating should head over to Nvidia’s GeForce Facebook page. From there, you’ll need to “Like” the page (if you haven’t already) and fill out a brief questionnaire. After that, we’re told you will be given an alpha trial key – granted there are still some left.

Codes are redeemable through EA’s Origin gaming service and of course, it’s only for PC gamers. It’s unclear whether or not other platforms will get a similar offer down the road. As we understand it, you should be able to load the client right away but the actual trial doesn’t get underway until November 2 at 1 p.m. PST.

Crysis 3 was officially unveiled nearly six months ago. At that time, we learned that players will control Nanosuit soldier Prophet in the year 2047. They’ll be responsible for guiding him through seven wonders of New York’s Liberty Dome as he seeks revenge. The nanodome consists of seven unique climates such as an urban swamp, rain forest and grasslands.

The title is expected to hit stores in February 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC.

Thanks so much, TechSpot, not enthusiastic on Origin or EA, but I'll give it a shot, FYI they just uploaded 7,500 more keys to anyone who thought they missed out.

I hope this one has good graphics like Crysis 1 instead of being a console sellout like Crysis 2

Too many really want to take advantage of Facebook. I've seen it grow along with other alternatives, all you see me use is Twitter and that's it. Want me using a social media site, that's only wanting your data? Forget it! Anything I'd put on there is fake info, just so they can later go delete it. Not that I'd even give a care.

Suddenly, I stopped caring.

This is an invitation to an Alpha build, not a Beta.

Really? Because the rest of us get "

Maybe they're getting them in batches and making them available as soon as they do. It's possible they've run out several times if that's the case.

Exactly.. I liked their page, went to my profile, started browsing, I clicked on my profile 15 minutes later, and there was a post stating that they had just uploaded 7,500 more alpha keys... I posted that on here when it happened, if you read the first few comments you'll see it.
