Along with Bulletstorm
, Xbox 360 owners can also now get the first taste of another hot upcoming EA title, Crytek's Crysis 2. Unfortunately as the subject suggests, this one is not available to PC and PlayStation 3 owners and there's no word as to if or when it will be. But don't get to jealous of Xbox 360 owners, because this demo is due to expire next week on February 4th (yeah we know, what the hell EA? -- on all counts).
The demo features the “Skyline” map, and two game modes; “Team Instant Action” and “Crash Site”. “Team Instant Action” is Crytek’s version of deathmatch. The mode pits two teams against each other as they kill as many opponents as possible to earn higher ranks. In “Crash Site”, you’ll battle for control of alien drop pods, earning points by guarding their pods and keeping enemies at bay.
Crysis 2 multiplayer is designed around team based gameplay between two factions – the C.E.L.L and the Marines and includes six gameplay modes and 12 maps set across recognisable locations in New York City. The Nanosuit is fully customizable and has dynamic gameplay styles: stealth & armor. Throughout the campaign you’ll experience the deep progression of the Nanosuit with up to 50 multiplayer ranks and a variety of different upgrades to your weapons and Nanosuit.
Accompanying this release, EA have also sent along a new multiplayer gameplay trailer, offering a basic tutorial for online play. Check it out below, or click here for the HD option
Crysis 2 is due on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 24th 2010.
