Crysis 2 PC demo release date

Two maps and two modes.

A PC Crysis 2 multiplayer demo will be available to download from 1st March, EA has announced.

The demo, which will be available to download from the Crysis 2 website, includes two maps and two modes, each setting up six versus six matches.

Skyline is set on top of the rooftops and interiors of skyscrapers in Crytek's crumbling New York, and Pier 17 is an open environment with limited cover.

Team Instant Action mode pits two teams against each other as they kill as many opponents as possible to win the round. Crash Site sees players battle for control of alien drop pods, earning points by guarding their pods and keeping enemies at bay.

EA's decision to release a PC demo of the upcoming shooter followed a raft of complaints from PC gamers about the apparent Xbox 360 exclusivity of the demo.

Meanwhile, EA reminded us that those who pre-order Crysis 2 will receive an automatic upgrade to the Crysis 2 Limited Edition, which includes four in-game unlocks for the multiplayer.

They are: bonus XP, the SCAR Hologram Decoy, the SCAR Weapon Skin and the Platinum Dog Tag.
