Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo Patched

March 9, 2011

By Andrew Burnes

Crytek’s ever-popular Crysis 2 multiplayer demo has been updated via a 37.6MB patch, and if you were previously unable to create an in-game account, required to play, you’ll be happy to know that the bug causing the problem has now been rectified. Pre-existing GameSpy multiplayer accounts containing dashes and numbers are now also able to log in to the demo, opening the door to many gamers accidentally locked out.

The other changes are as follows:

  • Logitech’s G35 Surround Sound gaming headset now works in the demo, having previously refused to output any and all audio.
  • The Main Menu now says “Press Enter To Begin” instead of the console-styled “Press Start To Begin.”
  • The server browser no longer displays the ping of servers due to a bug that Crytek are attempting to fix in time for the launch of the full game.
  • A crash that occurred when a player was forcibly disconnected from a dedicated server has been rectified.
