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.
