[Update] Added an awesome trailer for the new multiplayer demo showing off scenes from both maps, Skyline and the new Pier 17 – catch it below. [End of Update]
The promised new multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 has just gone live for Xbox 360 and PC gamers, while the announced PlayStation 3 online competitive taster is still ‘coming soon.’
This latest demo for the multiplayer portion of Crysis 2 will give you access to two maps (Skyline and Pier 17) and two of the game modes, Team Instant Action and Crash Site, as well as two maps,
The full version of Crysis 2’s multiplayer component will include “six intense, action-fueled gameplay modes: Instant Action, Team Instant Action, Crash Site, Capture the Relay, Extraction and Assault, set across 12 maps in Crytek’s visually stunning recreation of the Big Apple.”
According to EA, the previous Xbox 360 multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 was downloaded by over 1.7 million people, and I would guess that a lot of them would return for this new taster.
El33tonline’s previous coverage of Crysis 2 with gigantic collections of screenshots, videos and information dumps will easily keep you entertained as you download the 1.6GB demo ‒ you can head on over here to grab the PC sample.
The full game is out on March 22nd in North America, and March 25th in Europe and the UK.
