Now here is a nice surprise. A couple of days ago, Electronic Arts has revealed the contents of Crysis 2 Maximum Edition and nobody took notice about it. According to the publisher, this edition will feature 4 Limited Edition unlocks, as well as both the Retaliation and Decimation packs. Not only that, but this edition will hit Valve’s digital distribution service, Steam.
Going into more details, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition features Bonus XP (Access to preset classes plus a custom class), Scar weapon Skin (Scar assault rifle digital camouflage), Weapon Attachment (day 1 access to scar hologram decoy) and Unique Platinum Dog Tag.
Furthermore, this edition of Crysis 2 comes with a total of 9 additional Multiplayer maps supporting all game modes and 2 new weapons – FY71 Assault Rifle and M18 Smoke Grenade.
Do not confuse this Maximum Edition with the Crysis 2 Maximum Graphics Edition that was released alongside EVGA’s graphic cards. This is completely different edition and we expect to see it also on X360 and PS3.
As always, Steam’s registry does not lie and we can see below that Crysis 2 Maximum Edition was added to it. In case you are unaware of, both Crysis and Crysis 2 are is not present on Steam. Although we don’t know why Crysis is not currently available The reason behind Crysis 2’s absence was due to its patching issues (well, that was what EA suggested back then as it was the same reason why BF3 was not made available via Steam). Does this mean that Crysis 2’s support will be dropped? Not surprised if that’s true as Crytek is well known for this kind of support.
Electronic Arts has not revealed any release date for this special edition of Crysis 2, so stay tuned for more!
