Crytek, the studio behind the upcoming Crysis 2 first-person shooter, revealed through its Twitter account that it would be releasing a multiplayer demo for the PC platform of the game, before its launch this March.
Crysis 2 has been eagerly awaited by gamers for quite some time, especially by PC owners, who wanted to see the sequel of a game that required the most powerful system configurations of that time to even run properly.
PC owners were a bit sad, however, when Crytek released a multiplayer demo of the game exclusively for the Xbox 360, considering that the German studio just wants to attract console gamers to its future title.
Now, Crytek has once again turned its head to the PC crowd, and confirmed on its Twitter account that it would also be releasing a multiplayer demo for that platform as well.
"At this time, Crytek & EA are glad to confirm that we'll be releasing a pre-launch Crysis 2 multiplayer demo on PC! Stay tuned for details," said the studio on Twitter.
Crysis 2 is set to continue the story of the original, but swap out the main character, Nomad, with a new one, codenamed Alcatraz, which will use an enhanced version of the game's classic nanosuit, equipped with new features and attributes.
He will wage war on aliens and members of special forces through a war torn New York city, set in the near future.
The multiplayer mode will follow the same basic path, with players being equipped with their own nanosuits in order to try and complete certain objectives before their enemies.
The Crysis 2 multiplayer demo is still available for the Xbox 360, even if it has quite a few issues that will be fixed by Crytek in the near future.
Expect the PC edition of the demo to be released before the launch of Crysis 2, which will arrive on March 22, in North America, and March 25, in Europe.
