Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo Preview (RunDLC)

Crysis 2 arrives on consoles and PC March 22, but Electronic Arts and Crytek hope to give players a sample of this big bad first person shooter with an Xbox Live exclusive multiplayer demo, launching January 25. Here’s what you can expect.

Can't wait to play the demo on the 25th. This and Bulletstorm demo, should be a fun day.

An Xbox-only demo is bullcrap. No love for the PC crowd?

I found that strange too. Sad.

PC getting treated like the red headed stepchild...that's fucked up.

Clearly Crytek have made it very obvious where they see the future of crysis, where they see the money and the market and its cracking the 360 shooter crowd in the states. Not PS3, not PC.

Its funny but as of may 2010 PC version of Crysis sold 3million units. probably close to 3.5 by now. I wonder how much more Crytec expects?

I smell $$$ from microsoft for these actions.

Yea, the 360 kids are going to be playing CoD and Halo type games. They will ignore this pretty much. Why go after a new audenience that may not even like your product, when you already had one that was willing to buy a proper sequel already? Chances are they'll make less money this way. I know a hell of a lot of gamers who played Crysis 1, and just look at 2 and go "Screw that".

$$$$$$ talks sh!t walks...thats what happens when
a Dev like Crytek who would not be here with out
the PC crowd forgets what fan base got them to
where they are today...

Its said because i believe this game/franchise
belongs on the PC...

Could you slide and vault things in the first Crysis?

This seems like it's pulling things from every other shooter coming out, trying to weed out any unique advantages they may have had.

I don't know how I feel about it. It cool, because they're trying to compete. But none of the stuff looks better than the games which are selling that uniqueness. It's trying to be everything instead of trying to be Crysis, which is a problem because it needs to establish an identity with consoles gamers, and not be a generic great looking FPS.

I'm interested in Crysis 2, so I'll have to wait and see.

If you wanna talk unique, look at Brink. It does much more than Crysis and looks just plain fun to boot. Crysis2 looks like Generic-shooter#56 with a slide button and active camo.
ABizzel1  +   1527d ago
That's why I said that. They have brink parkour, and now Killzones brutal melee kills.

cez shouldnt you be wondering what the hell MS is doing and why the hell they only giving you exlusive demos and not any games?
well bless you, it must be so hard to find a positive story apart from sales for your beloved console

Can't wait.

Bulletstorm & Crysis 2 demos should go down quite nicely..

I've just started playing Crysis (got it in the Steam sale) and it's really good. But the second one really isn't appealing to me much. I guess NYC doesn't have the appeal of the jungle like in the first version.

i cant wait for Crysis2 but its bullshit that the 360 gets a Beta and a Demo for crysis2.

Yeah seems a bit off not providing a Ps3 demo as well. Maybe MS has done some underhand dealing to secure it. EA would usually be a bit more unbiased unless money is involved.
