The lights are on
Ubisoft will be running a two-week multiplayer beta on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this summer for its upcoming action shooter, Far Cry 3. Find out below how to get into the action.
The beta includes six playable classes and several maps and modes to explore in 16-player matches. The progression system will be active, so you can unlock hundreds of upgrades and other ways to customize your experience. For more details on how Far Cry 3's multiplayer works, check out Dan Ryckert's hands-on preview on Domination mode.
Obtaining a beta invite is a matter of buying Ubisoft's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier at GameStop when it comes out on May 22nd, or hoping to snag one of the codes Ubisoft will be giving away through its social channels at Facebook and its community sites and partners.
Far Cry 3 comes out September 4 on 360, PS3, and PC.
Full Disclosure: GameStop is the parent company of Game Informer.
