EA and Crytek announced today that a new Crysis 2 multiplayer demo will arrive on PC and Xbox 360 on March 1 with a PS3 demo coming soon.

Last month over 1.7 million players downloaded an early multiplayer demo on Xbox 360, and the new demo includes two maps, “Skyline” and “Pier 17”, as well as two modes “Team Instant Action” and “Crash Site”.

Crysis 2 multiplayer will include six gameplay modes: Instant Action, Team Instant Action, Crash Site, Capture the Relay, Extraction and Assault, set across 12 maps. Players will advance through a progression system of 50 levels, earning a variety of upgrades along the way for weapons and the Nanosuit.
