Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo for PC released on 1st March 2011.
It features two maps located in a war-torn Manhattan: â€œSkylineâ€, set on top of the rooftops and interiors of skyscrapers, and â€œPier 17â€, an open environment with limited cover. The demo also features two modes: â€œTeam Instant Actionâ€ pits two teams against each other as they kill as many opponents as possible to win the round and â€œCrash Site,â€ where players will battle for control of alien drop pods, earning points by guarding their pods and keeping enemies at bay.
Installation Via Steam Playing Multiplayer
What does not
Mouse: Bug 6971 (used MouseWarpOverride=force, and therefore had to navigate the menu's with the keyboard) Futhermore mouse is quite quirky and hard to move while in-game. Seems to crash more often on resolutions higher than 1024x768.
What was not tested
wine-1.3.15-126-g2520a36 Didn't seem to need any additional dlls, I installed from a new wineprefix, and before starting the game, I renamed the DirectX directory in 'steamapps/common/crysis 2 demo', so it wouldn't try to install dx. Considering it's crysis 2, and it is working fairly well out of the box, I was going to rate it silver, but the mouse issues make it to play.
