Crytek’s director of creative development, Rasmsus Hojengaard, was on hand at EA’s Gamescom press event to present a sneak peak of Hunter Mode multiplayer.

Hunter Mode was confirmed to support up to 16 players at a time. Comprising of two teams – a large group of CELL troopers, and smaller group of cloaked Hunters – it’s up to the Hunters to take out their prey. The twist being that as those playing as CELL troopers are taken down they will respawn as Hunters, so quickly tipping the balance of power.

Don’t expect the CELL troopers to win often, the Hunters sporting not only more efficient weapons, but also being equipped with Crysis’ ubiquitous cloaking technology . The challenge lies in taking out all CELL troopers within the tight time limit as the rapidly decimated CELL forces cower for their lives amid the ‘urban jungle’ setting of Crysis 3.

Crysis 3 is confirmed for release in February 2013 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
