PC Crysis 2 multiplayer demo inbound

Crytek announces Xbox 360 losing trial exclusivity; start date not yet announced.


No Caption Provided Xbox Live members have had access to a multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 since Tuesday, but Microsoft's console platform won't be the exclusive carrier of the sample experience.

According to a tweet from Crytek, a multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 will arrive on the PC--the platform the series was born on--sometime before the game's March 22 launch.

While the contents of the PC demo were not revealed, the Xbox 360 version offers the Skyline map, as well as two game modes: Team Instant Action and Crash Site. The former presents a standard deathmatch mode, where players compete to kill as many on the opposing side as they can, gaining ranks and prestige along the way. The latter is a capture-and-hold game type, in which players attempt to secure an alien drop pod and then defend it from the opposing team.
