As of September 7, the Xbox 360 servers for Crytek's first-person shooter Crysis 3 will be switched off, which could affect 23 Crysis 3 achievements. If you'd like to nab the completion before that time, the game's available via EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, while also being backwards compatible on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

EA server closure will potentially discontinue 23 Crysis 3 achievements

With the server closure imminent, now is your final chance to unlock all of the Crysis 3 achievements before you can't access the servers anymore. While a number of them have been reported as buggy, it currently looks like all 60 achievements can be unlocked. The base game contains 50 achievements worth 1,000 Gamerscore, and completion estimates suggest it takes between 20 and 25 hours to unlock them all. As for The Lost Island DLC, it contains an additional ten achievements worth 250 Gamerscore and has an estimated completion time of two to three hours.

Looking at the estimated times to unlock all of the Crysis 3 achievements, a completion should almost certainly be manageable before the game's servers are switched off on September 7. Looking at the lists, 23 of the achievements require you to play public multiplayer modes — Gaming Sessions here on TrueAchievements could help you find like-minded players wanting to finish the game as well.
