New Crysis 2 demo announced for 360

Still no PS3 date though.

Forthcoming FPS sequel Crysis 2 gets a new Xbox 360 multiplayer demo next week, publisher EA has announced.

The new demo, which hits Xbox Live on 1st March, will include two maps - "Skyline" and "Pier 17" - and two gameplay modes - "Team Instant Action" and "Crash Site".

As previously announced, PC users can get their hands on the demo on the same day. A PlayStation 3 version is also on the way, but EA hasn't confirmed a release date for that as of yet.

Here's hoping it'll be a little more polished than the first multiplayer demo, which launched exclusively on Xbox 360 last month. Players reported regularly being disconnected from the game's servers and screen freezing during the matchmaking process.

The full experience arrives in stores on 25th March for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
