Crysis 2's Retaliation map pack will debut on May 17. The content--which publisher Electronic Arts has not priced--will debut for the Xbox 360 and PC, and it is composed of four new environments for the game's multiplayer component.

EA had intended to also release the Crysis 2 add-on for the PlayStation 3 on May 17. However, Sony has said it doesn't expect the PlayStation Network to return to service until May 31.

The new killing spaces are Park Avenue, Transit, Shipyard, and Compound. For a look at the new environments in action, check out the trailer below.
