Apologies guys that should say Thursday 14th! Someone will correct that momentarily, thanks for spotting!
On February 14, GameSpot is bringing Crysis 3 to the biggest screen in the UK, and you're invited! Here's our lowdown on everything you need to know.
On Thursday 14 February, GameSpot will be hosting Crysis 3 at an exclusive event at the London IMAX. You'll be able to experience Crytek's new shooter on the biggest screen in the UK--one that's roughly the height of five double-decker buses and packing a 12,000 Watt digital surround sound system. We still have a limited amount of tickets to give away, so if you're yet to get in on the action, there's still time.
It all kicks off at 5.30pm on the 14th, when those in attendance will be able to play the game for themselves on the demo pods in the IMAX foyer. The GameSpot UK editorial team will also be in attendance, so keep your eyes peeled for a chance to meet the guys and, of course, take them down in the game.
Then, at 7pm, we'll transfer into the cinema's vast auditorium, as the main event gets underway. PWNED's Sian Welby and GameSpot UK editor Guy Cocker will be talking to developers Crytek, taking a look behind the scenes, and inviting you to compete in a round of multiplayer. The multiplayer tournament will be based around Crysis 3's new Hunter mode, the same mode that's currently available in the Crysis 3 multiplayer beta, so there's still time to get some practise in if you want to be in with a chance of winning some prizes.
At the end of the night, we'll be exclusively demoing the opening level of the single player campaign on the IMAX's giant screen. This will be your earliest chance to see how Prophet's latest adventure begins, with brand new sequences that are being revealed for the very first time.
If this sounds like your kind of party, simply click here to visit the Crysis 3 hub page, then hit the button marked "Get Ticket". Once that's done, you just need to get yourself to the BFI London IMAX on Thursday February 14th. Doors open at 5.30pm, and we hope to see you there!
If you can't make it to the event, we'll be live streaming everything except the single player demo (which is exclusive to IMAX attendees) on our Twitch channel, which you can subscribe to here. Crysis 3 is released on February 22 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and you can find out more about the game by visiting our Crysis 3 hub for screens, videos and previews. And be sure to watch the video below to see Cam and Seb playing Crysis 3's multiplayer modes!
