Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo Available for Download

By - Source: TechTree | B 74 comments

It’s here!

Sure, a near-complete beta version of the entire game may have been leaked last month leaving EA and Crytek ‘deeply disappointed,’ but that hasn’t stopped the two studios from releasing the multiplayer PC demo of the game.

The demo clocks in at about 1.6GB and includes two maps, Skyline and Pier 17. The latter is more open, while the former is a skyscraper interior and rooftop map based in New York City. The demo also boasts two playing modes, Team Instant Action and Crash Site. Team Instant Action is a team-based deathmatch that sees either side compete for the highest body count, while Crash Site involves guarding alien drop pods and awards points for fending off enemies.

Crysis 2’s release is scheduled for March 22 (March 25 for European gamers), so you’ll have roughly three weeks of demo-time before deciding if you want to go and get the game on launch day. The complete version will have six gameplay modes and 12 maps.

Hit up EA to download the game.

    I've downloaded it, alright, but how the heck does one play this freakin' game??? It requires you to register and login, but after 2 hours I still can't create an account!!!

    Damn, it's a demo, I should be able to start playing in 15 secs. This is what a call a bad start.

    I've read elsewhere that the Demo is very Consolish.. Including things like Aim-Assist being on by default.. WHY?!

    I fear this may be yet another bland console port.. What happened to you Crytek?

    Press start to continue, autoaim, and average graphics. I'm so glad Crysis 2 is looking to be a complete console port.

    I grabbed the demo last night but haven't installed it yet, the game looks promising from a gameplay standpoint.

    The demo was pretty lame. This doesnt come as a surprise though as the first crysis wasnt that great either.

    This was a bad idea for crytek. The demo seems like a shitty unfinished console port(dx9 only...). I'm not going to make any judgments on the game until the full version is released.

    Unfortunately thousands of other people already have made their judgment on the game and will no longer be buying it.

    Not extremley excited about Crysis 2 but wont hurt to see if my rig can handle it. They said its very optimized so we shall see if its a resource hog like Crysis was.

    Been playing this since this morning. It's not too bad... My only problem is that I don't like the nanosuit setup in comparison to the first one. The multiplayer mode also isn't as huge (in map size and player count) as the first, which is also disappointing.
