Microsoft have once again secured another Xbox Live exclusive, this time in the form of a multiplayer demo for Crysis 2
, which is due to land on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 March 24. The demo will be available for download the day after Australia Day, January 26.
The Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo will feature the “Skyline” map, and two game modes; “Team Instant Action” and “Crash Site”. “Team Instant Action” pits two teams against each other as they kill as many opponents as possible to earn higher ranks. In “Crash Site”, players will battle for control of alien drop pods, earning points by guarding their pods and keeping enemies at bay.
Developed by Crytek UK, Crytek’s specialist multiplayer studio, Crysis 2 multiplayer will include six gameplay modes and 12 maps set across recognizable locations in New York City. Throughout the campaign, players can earn up to 50 multiplayer ranks and a variety of different upgrades to their weapons and their Nanosuit.
There's no word on the likelihood of any such demo arriving for the PC or the PS3, but stay tuned for more info on the game as its release draws near. We also have a new trailer showing off the multiplayer you can watch embedded below, or stream in HD by clicking here
