Last month over 1.7 million players downloaded an early multiplayer demo on Xbox 360. Since then, Crytek has taken player feedback to help improve the experience even more.
All versions of the new demo will include two maps, “Skyline” and “Pier 17”, as well as two modes “Team Instant Action” and “Crash Site”. Crysis 2 multiplayer 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. Players will advance through a deep progression system of 50 levels, earning a variety of upgrades along the way for weaponry and the Nanosuit itself, rewarding long-term players with tactical advantages that increase their speed, strength and stealth abilities even more.
A demo for the Playstation 3 is still in the works.
In Crysis 2 the world has been ravaged by a series of climatic disasters and society is on the verge of total breakdown. Now the aliens have returned, with a full invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind, starting by trying to rip the heart out of Earth’s most iconic city: New York.
Just to survive will require technology beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen. One man will inherit that means to survive. Wielding the combat enhancement technology of the future with Nanosuit 2, you alone will be the weapon that can make a last stand to save humanity from destruction in the urban jungle that is New York City.
Crysis 2 will be released March 22, 2011 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
