Crysis 2 Multiplayer and Box Art Revealed

A bunch of Crysis 2 information was revealed today at Gamescom. First up, we have some multiplayer footage of a 6v6 roof top match. Those of you that are regular viewers of the site should not have been too surprised as we mention that we would see Crysis 2 multiplayer footage at Gamescom earlier.

Next, Crytek posted some more details about the nanosuit add on modules you can expect to see in multiplayer.


Weapons Specialist Module

With the Weapons Specialist ability, the player can reload his weapons both more efficiently and quicker.

Proximity Alarm Module

With the Proximity Alarm module attached, the Nanosuit gives audio feedback whenever an enemy approaches. This allows the player to sneak up on or evade their attacker, depending on their preferred tactics.

Enhanced Visor Module

With the Enhanced Visor module attached, the Nanosuit prominently highlights all enemies whenever they are detected through digital scopes.

Furthermore, we get some clarification on which game modes we can expect in multiplayer.


Crash Site

Crash Site is a team-based game mode where 2 sides compete for control of Ceph Drop Pods launched periodically into the map by drop ships patrolling overhead. Teams score points by guarding the pods and keeping enemies at bay.

Team Instant Action

Team Instant Action is a standard game mode pitting 2 teams against each other. Kill as many opponents as possible, whilst attempting to minimize your own deaths. Use the Nanosuit to sneak up on enemies in Stealth mode, or charge in and gun them down in Armor.

Finally, here are some new multiplayer screens.

You can check out more mp screens in one of our forum posts. Now that we know some more about Crysis 2’s multiplayer, let’s take a look at the box art for the limited edition of crysis. Also, you can check out the nano edition features in another post that was made earlier.

We also have some more details about the two editions and the unique items players will receive.

The Crysis 2 Limited Edition will be available for no additional cost, while supplies last, and features four must-have in-game unlocks for the ultimate multiplayer experience:

• Bonus XP – Players will jump into multiplayer battles with an edge by starting with enough experience points to gain early access to all 5 preset class load-outs.

• SCAR Hologram Decoy – This special attachment to the SCAR will project a hologram image of the player, allowing them to confuse their opponents with the decoy.

• SCAR Weapon Skin – This digital camouflage skin will allow players to add a personalized touch to one of the more popular assault rifles in the game.

• Platinum Dog Tag – This special one-of-a-kind dog tag is one of over 250 that will be collectible in Crysis 2 multiplayer, helping to separate you from the rest of the field.

The Crysis 2 Nano Edition is designed for the ultimate Crysis fan, and will include the Limited Edition housed in a steel case plus an 11” / 28 cm statue of the game’s hero “Prophet” on top of a New York taxi cab, a high-quality art book, all packaged inside a backpack modeled after the Nanosuit itself. Not available in stores, the Nano Edition is available in extremely limited quantities via pre-order only for $149.99 / £119.99 / €129.99.
