Crysis 3 is getting a "Hunter" multiplayer mode that will support 16 players, and it was demoed at Gamescom 2012 during Electronic Arts press conference when two hunters took on seven CELL troopers in a timed match.

The premise had a CELL ship that was shot down and the troopers had to fight for survival against the hunters in their superior nanosuits. The kicker is that when a CELL trooper was killed, the player respawns as a cloaked hunter, giving the out-manned hunters an advantage as time winds down during the match.

Crysis 3 is coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in February 2013.

      So it's Zombie mode from the Halo series? Awesome! Crysis series seems tailor made for a game-type like this, should be positively terrifying to play.

      Crysis 2 MP was amazing but unfortunately hacking killed it very quick. I really think companies should spend more time and money on hack protection so their hard work doesnt go to waste.

        +1 Hacking definitely kills a MP game quickly. I'll never understand why someone would want to ruin a game for themselves and others.

      It doesn't look fun to be the Cell in this video.

      Even with the larger player count,I have no interest in the MP.Crysis 2 MP was pretty weak imo,and this looks to be the same crap with nothing but camping and cloaking.No thanks,I'll stick to the single player campaign.

      There's an AvP mode like this. It's pretty fun.

      I think it'd be cool to have a ridiculously overpowered nanosuit vs. a few normal blokes.

      If this turns out like "PREDATOR" mode in Farcry on xbox, I will buy, especially if it has a map editor
