Crysis 2 Leaked!


Seems like someone at EA or Crytek got a little ahead of themselves and released a build of the game onto the interwebs. The game is due for release on March 22nd but according to EA, “Crytek has been alerted that an early incomplete, unfinished build of Crysis 2″. They both seemed to be pretty disappointed by the news and encourage fans to support the game and the development team by waiting for the final product.

I am not sure how much this is really going to hurt the sales. It’s been said by the ones that have downloaded the game that it’s buggy and broken even though it’s the full game. Check out the game in multiplayer sweetness after the jump and tell me you would still prefer some broken piece of crap.

    Was not impressed by xbox demo. If your expecting pc quality be prepared to have hopes completely destroyed.

    That’s kind of what I said when I reviewed it.

    So they really dumbed it down for the consoles ah?

    can’t wait to play this on PC, loved Crysis and Crysis Warhead.

    wouldn’t waste my time playing it on console, its a PC game and should of stayed that way.

    Yes indeed. Do not bother with the console.

    Honestly I am not that big into this game for some reason. I played the first one on the PC and the graphics were really nice but I am just not feeling it. If I had a powerful enough PC I might actually get it but since I don’t I won’t.

    a game like Crysis should be only on computer, the multiplayer does not look bad and Iam sure it will be really good, demos suck anyway and to juge a game by its demo isnt right of course its not going to look good or play good thats Y its called a demo.

  9. #9 by carlos on February 12th, 2011

    what? no, the game looks ten times better on pc than it does on console…you just need a dx11 full gaming rig to be able to enjoy it…the leaked version does not allow you to go beyond dx9 and it still looks better than console…

    I don’t agree Dave. A demo is a final build to show you what the game is. If that is crap it will turn people off. I think what you’re talking about is a Beta which is never a final release, and thus shouldn’t be taken as the final product.

    @Luke,

    yeah maybe but I dont thank crytek would mess it up, I mean they made farcry 5 or 6 years ago and that was a very cool fun game, and it was the best game on anything back then lots of people liked it, crysis was as good as farcry for me, but anyway i guess Ill see how crysis 2 will be when it comes out, but I never played the demo for it, I have seen the game plays for this game and it doesnt look to bad to me.

    Actually, a lot of demos clearly state that they are “for demonstration purposes only, and should not be taken as representative of the finished product.” Or words to that effect.

    The console version suffers from control lag. I dont think they have enough time to iron this out. They simply need to delay it and give the consumer a solid product. The problem with this title is they simply dont know the ins and outs of the consoles enough to produce pc quality. Give naughty dog the code :P I bet they’d improve it 10 fold lol

    Can’t wait for the PC release!! I prefer to play that kind of game on my computer.

    The control lag that everyone speaks of is only for the jump button and it’s intentional. The longer you hold it down the higher you jump. Tap it and barely jump, hold it down to jump higher. You are wearing an exoskeleton suit so it has to build energy to jump. Takes all of five minutes to get the hang of it.

    yeah the demo doesn’t mean its the final build. often the demo is a few months old build.

    look at the Mass Effect 2 demo that was put out, that was 2 months old and the final game runs a lot better.

  17. #17 by Markus on February 13th, 2011 [ 4322 Points ]

    That was a pretty cool traile. Idk if I will buy the game but I definitely want an exoskeleton.

  18. #18 by Luke on February 13th, 2011 [ 27382 Points ]

    Guys a demo is the final build except due to updates it gets outdated. It’s still a solid copy when presenting the game as opposed to a Beta.

    Killzone 3 was also leaked this weekend.

  20. #20 by Ravenitrius on February 13th, 2011 [ 1275 Points ]

    I can’t wait to play this game on the PC along with any mods. OH MAN. I hope the Mechwarrior Living Legends mod also come to Crysis 2. Yeah. That be awesome.

    console version dumbed down confirmed. http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=es&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=es&tl=en&u=http://www.nicagamerz.com/v6/news/984/crysis-2-en-consolas-es-igual-a-low-settings-en-su-version-en-pc/

    console version is equivelent as PC version on low settings lol

    i’ll be running Crysis on max settings 1080p when you need me.

    derrickgott007: Killzone 3 was also leaked this weekend.  

    Someone else posted about this but I am not sure what happened to that post. I will have to check into this. It’s pretty weird hearing about leaks for the PS3

    Someone who got a review copy and also pirates his games lol.

    I’ve been plating it, let me clarify some things. The graphics are 10 times better than the first Crysis and you don’t need a supercomputer to play it. The game is actually very different. It is a little bit more linear which makes it a bit funner imho. They still drop you in the mix of battle with AI, but there are some scripted cheesyness. Go into the editor and you can view the console quality vs the pc, the very high setting isn’t even accessible in the game menus. There is only: Low, Medium, & High on the pc. The consoles are actually very bad quality but im glad Crytek made the jump, the game runs 10 times better than the first Crysis. Some people are like “Oh its DX9″. An API won’t stop someone from implementing new hacks. I actually think DX10 and 11 are just tacked on and don’t actually change that much. Rage is supposed to be based on DX9 as well. For instance there is some crazy AA on the build and I’m not sure how they built it. There are a lot of cool hacks put in from Cryengine 2. I think the engine now is better than the UDK.
