Crysis 2 'Retaliation' map pack incoming

If you're still playing Crysis 2's multiplayer and have a hankering for some new maps, developer Crytek has your back. The 'Retaliation' map pack was formally announced today by publisher EA, though word of it leaked out last month.

New multiplayer maps Park Avenue, Transit, Shipyard, and Compound will be available for your face-shooting pleasure when the downloadable content launches on May 17. They're new maps. Four of them. You'll get to play them in multiplayer. In Crysis 2. On your Windows PC, Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system, or PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. Four. New ones. May 17.

It'd be lovely if Retaliation were free, but pricing has not yet been revealed and if wishes were horses, beggars would ride. The leaky whispered rumours suggested Retaliation would cost 800 Microsoft Points ($10). Such a price would be a reasonable maximum, for it takes a huge amount of confidence to price your first-person shooter's map packs in the same range as those for Call of Duty games.

Here, come see the maps:
