Crysis 2 Limited and Nano Editions Announced, X360 Multiplayer Beta Starts This Fall

When Crysis 2 ships in March for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, it’ll be available in two special edition packages.

At no additional cost, the Crysis 2 “Limited Edition” will be the main version consumers get upon purchasing the game…while supplies last, of course. It will include the following multiplayer perks:

* Bonus XP – Players will jump into multiplayer battles with an edge by starting with enough experience points to gain early access to all 5 preset class load-outs.

* SCAR Hologram Decoy – This special attachment to the SCAR will project a hologram image of the player, allowing them to confuse their opponents with the decoy.

* SCAR Weapon Skin – This digital camouflage skin will allow players to add a personalized touch to one of the more popular assault rifles in the game.

* Platinum Dog Tag – This special one-of-a-kind dog tag is one of over 250 that will be collectible in Crysis 2 multiplayer, helping to separate you from the rest of the field.

The uber-fancy Crysis 2 “Nano Edition,” on the other hand, will cost the tidy sum of $149.99 / £119.99 / €129.99 and be made in such limited quantities that it will only be sold online to those who pre-order. In terms of content, it’ll come packed inside a custom steel case including an 11” statue of Prophet, the game’s star, standing atop a taxi cab, an art book, and a backpack specially made to look like the Nanosuit. All in-game bonus content from the Limited Edition will be tossed in as well.

This image leaked and quickly removed from Webhallen.com last month is apparently the Nano Edition, though an official product shot has not yet been provided by EA or Crytek.

It has also been announced today that a closed beta test for Crysis 2‘s multiplayer mode is scheduled for this fall exclusively on Xbox 360. Whether or not the PC and/or PS3 versions will get beta tests sometime thereafter remains to be seen.
