New Crysis 2 Xbox 360 MP demo incoming

PC gamers aren't the only ones getting a Crysis 2 multiplayer demo on March 1; the new demo's also due on Xbox 360 that fateful Tuesday.

If you missed the brief period when the Crysis 2 multiplayer demo was available on Xbox 360, or simply fancy having another go, you'll be glad to hear that the console's receiving another demo.

The new Xbox 360 demo will arrive alongside the PC demo on March 1, developer Crytek and publisher EA announced today. The pair also revealed that the PlayStation 3 demo confirmed yesterday is "coming soon," but declined to give a release date.

All three versions of the new multiplayer demo will contain two maps, 'Skyline' and 'Pier 17,' and two modes, 'Team Instant Action' and 'Crash Site.' Skyline was the map in the original Xbox 360 demo.

That original Xbox 360 demo, by the way, was downloaded 1.7 million times during the ten days it was available from January 25, according to today's press release. It also notes that "Since then, Crytek has taken player feedback to help improve the experience even more." The demo was slightly troubled when it launched, with players reporting issues including connectivity problems and outright freezing.

Crysis 2 is scheduled to launch for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 22.

      I really hope this game turns to be a multi-platform hit as I love it on PC and I'd like to see the series continued. I'm sure it won't do as well as CoD, but hopefully it'll be a big success.

          I won't be able to say for sure until the demo but I don't have any reason to believe that it was.

            i watched the leaked video and it did seem to handle nicely on the dood's computer. but yeah, i won't pass judgement till i'm able to give it a try myself.

              The leaked videos really kicked up my hype for Crysis 2, to be honest. I can't wait to see the PC version running maximum (or whatever my system can handle) settings. I really hope the demo isn't capped off.

                dood, totally. even though they were just fucking around, it really looked damn good and even in the city environment had the look and feel of the original.

        They cribbed well from CoD. I think they'll have a chance on the MP side.

          which is good for all the people who won't play COD simply because it's not 'cool' to like COD

            I bought CoD:Black Ops specifically because I didn't want to be that guy. It ran like ass and sucked on the PC so I regret it and look forward to Crysis 2 as my vanilla shooter (I know it has the suit so it's not totally vanilla, but I mean compared to games like Left 4 Dead 2 where you aren't shooting at people who are shooting back at you with similar stuff).

              Have you tried it recently. It has improved somewhat for a lot of people (I never really had any major problems with it after the first patch or so on my various machines...but I seem to be an outlier).

        I already hated the first one.

      I hope it's decent. Worried they only picked the more limited landscape of inner city to bring it too consoles.... hoping the pc version isn't nerfed!!
