EA has now released the Crysis 2 multiplayer closed beta, at a hard drive cost of 1.8Gb. This is an 360 exclusive. Get it here, and find a direct-feed movie and screens below.

The beta features the “Skyline” map, and two game modes: “Team Instant Action” and “Crash Site.”

Team Instant Action pits two teams against each other as they kill as many opponents as possible to earn higher ranks.

In Crash Site, players will battle for control of alien drop pods, earning points by guarding their pods and keeping enemies at bay.

EA has “no other announcements to make at this time” regarding a multi-format release for the test.

On release, the shooter’s multiplayer will include six gameplay modes and 12 maps set across recognizable locations in New York City.

Throughout the campaign, players can earn up to 50 multiplayer ranks and a variety of different upgrades to their weapons and Nanosuit.

Crysis 2 will be available PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on March 22 in North America and March 25 in Europe.
