Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo

The Crysis 2 multiplayer demo hits Xbox Live on the 25th Jan 2011. This demo is exclusive to Xbox Live, so you won’t be able to play it anywhere else. The demo will feature one map (Skyline) and 2 game modes:

  • Team Instant Action (aka team deathmatch)
  • Crash Site – Battle for control of alien drop pods (aka control point)

Here is a tactical overview of the Skyline map so you can start familiarising yourselves with the battle field:


It is unknown at the moment how long the multiplayer demo will last, so play it while you can. In the full Crysis 2 multiplayer there will be six gameplay modes set across 12 New York based maps. You will be able to earn up to 50 different multiplayer ranks and unlock weapons and upgrades to your nanosuit.

Personally, I’m bad enough at online multiplayer games when I can see my opponents, so the bit in the trailer when a whole group of soldiers “appear” behind a poor solider before blasting the crap out of them fills me with dread! On the flip side, killing a player by pushing a car on their head from the building above looks like great fun.

Crysis 2 is due for release on the 25th March 2011 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
