I'm not surprised. Any PC multiplayer game worth anything features dedicated servers.

I wish more console games would have the same. As a console and PC gamer I would love to see more PC-like in-game stability in what are otherwise quality console titles.

I'm still wondering if Crysis 2 will only have 12 players on the PC version when it's using dedicated servers. Seems really low considering most of the shooters releasing this year will have much higher player counts. If the maps are that small that they need to have lower player numbers, I may have to pass on this game.

It'll probably be 16 or 18 for the Team Deathmatch maps, possibly 24 for the larger game modes.

Doesn't matter, the modders are going to screw up the game on PC anyway. People will be running around firing chickens out of their rocket launchers, and I'm sure that others will be flying somehow.

Fishy Fingers1996d ago

Chicken launchers? That's a pre-order in itself.

Pandamobile1996d ago

No shit, BattleAxe, that's part of the fun.

"24/7 Pier 17 Team Deathmatch w/ Chicken Guns Chicago"

I'd join that in a heartbeat.

thats at least some good news...i just dont want it to be like the beta...hopefully all those bugs are gone...this game has potential....we'll see what happens after it launches...

I was going to get Crysis 2 eventually on PC anyway so this is just a plus to an already excellent decision by me.
:)

Agent-861996d ago

I may pass on the game if it only supports 12 players on PC. That seems really low and it may be due to the maps being too small.

DFresh1996d ago

For me I want to play the story mode.
You know Steam will have massive sales and you could probably get it eventually for like $20 and hell Valve will throw in the option to get all the Crysis games for free.
Gotta love those Steam deals every year.

Yeah sadly it's looking like I will have to get this on PC too, just because I want to be wowed by the graphics..

I just don't think they were able to pull that off on consoles with everyone saying that the Crysis 2 beta on xbox wasn't anything special, and since they haven't even shown the PS3 version-(Not to mention they are already comparing the Beta to killzone 2, yeah not KZ3 but KZ2- not a good sign)

I think it's safe to say they just didn't make an amazing Looking Console version.

So I hope they really focused and put serious attention on making the PC version amazing then..

but you never know because with companies like these they may have just watered the whole thing down, to try to reach a bigger market, and have the same experience on PC and Consoles- which would be sad.. - but we shall see..
