Unfazed by the recent leak, EA and Crytek have announced that a PC multiplayer demo of Crysis 2 will become available on March 1. The page where the download link will appear is already up, teasing some of the goodies that are in store. Among those:
Players will compete in six vs. six matches set against a war-torn Manhattan in two maps: "Skyline", set on top of the rooftops and interiors of skyscrapers, and "Pier 17", an open environment with limited cover. The demo also features two modes: "Team Instant Action" pits two teams against each other as they kill as many opponents as possible to win the round and "Crash Site," where players will battle for control of alien drop pods, earning points by guarding their pods and keeping enemies at bay.
For a closer look at the two demo maps, official Crysis community site MyCrysis has posted previews of both Skyline and Pier 17. The previews include screenshots and detailed floor plans of the maps, so you can already start planning out your strategies.
