EA Treats Xbox 360 to Exclusive Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo

EA sure has scheduled out a busy day of gaming on January 25th. On that date, Dead Space 2 ships for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, a demo for Bulletstorm blasts onto PSN and Xbox Live, and now a multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 is also inbound.

But there is a catch, and it’ll come as a major disappointment to any PC and PS3 gamers out there itching to take Crysis 2 and Crytek’s stunning new CryENGINE 3 tech for a test drive. Come next Tuesday, Xbox 360 owners will be the only ones waking up with the opportunity to play the demo, as EA and Crytek have announced that it’ll be available exclusively to Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

Here’s a brief description of what will be in the demo.

The Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo will feature the “Skyline” map, and two game modes; “Team Instant Action” and “Crash Site”. “Team Instant Action” pits two teams against each other as they kill as many opponents as possible to earn higher ranks. In “Crash Site”, players will battle for control of alien drop pods, earning points by guarding their pods and keeping enemies at bay.

As for Crysis 2‘s full multiplayer suite, come March 22nd you can expect six game modes, 12 maps set in New York City, four main classes and five custom classes, 50 ranks, and upgradeable weapons and Nanosuit modules. Only difference is, on March 22nd the full game launches for all three platforms.
