Xbox 360 gets exclusive Crysis 2 demo

Plus, pre-order swag detailed.

A multiplayer Crysis 2 demo is heading exclusively to Xbox Live on 25th January, publisher EA has announced.

The demo will feature the game's Skyline map and two game modes: Team Instant Action and Crash Site. The former pits two teams against each other as they attempt to kill as many opponents as possible to earn higher ranks. In the latter you'll battle for control of alien drop pods, earning points by guarding their pods and keeping enemies at bay.

EA also revealed what goodies lie in store for anyone prepared to stump up for a pre-order. Early birds get a limited edition of the game which includes a camouflage skinned SCAR assault rifle and early access to the Holo Decoy - a weapon attachment that projects a moving holographic mirror of the player.

On top of that, you'll also get Platinum Dog Tags displaying your multiplayer rank and stats as well as a Bonus XP award to boost your rank.

Crytek's highly anticipated follow-up to its phenomenal 2007 shooter is due for release on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 25th March.
