One of the most anticipated game titles of the year 2011, Crysis 2, caused a huge wave of interest and upheaval withing the gaming community and beyond when it was announced last year. It’s predecessor was launched in the year 2007 and since then Crysis was one of the most graphically advanced game that gamers and others used for playing and testing new GPU’s and gaming rigs.
Last year Crytek announced that they will be launching a new version of the game with Cry Engine 3, a highly advanced and mind-blowing graphical interface. Crysis 2 was all set for a March release, but unfortunately a leak of what looks like the beta version of the full game was leaked on certain torrent sites. The beta certainly isn’t completed yet, but looks like you’ll be able to play it using the new engine and you can also select levels and you’ll still see some undeveloped scenes. Crysis Studios took this really serious, and gaming fans across the world tried to spread the word and make people not download it so that they can wait for the official version coming out this month.
Camarillo, the executive producer on Crysis 2 stated :
We were really high off the feeling that wow, we’ve got this really awesome game that came together, that we want to play and which will be a lot of fun. Then, getting that kind of news swings your emotions in completely the opposite direction. We’re normally very communicative at the office, but people just weren’t talking to each other like they normally do – it hit really, really hard.
Crysis 2 will be officially released on March 22 2011 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, but until then you can enjoy the Demo version of the game which was launched today by EA for PC and Xbox 360.
You can download the Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo from here for PC, although lot of the game’s features aren’t available in the demo version and also it doesn’t support DirectX 11. Xbox 360 users can download the game from Xbox Live Marketplace.
