Crysis 2 Xbox 360 beta this year, 2 SEs announced

The Crysis 2 closed multiplayer beta will take place “later this year,” Crytek and EA announced today. On Xbox 360 only.

Additional details are thin for now though. Back in June, access was promised to selected early registrants, but no word on whether other means of entry will be provided.

In addition to the beta bits, two special editions were announced as well: Limited Edition and Nano Edition.

Both come with special packaging and unlocks for the multiplayer mode, with the LE being available for no extra cost. The (previously leaked) Nano Edition is a different story however; the steel case, 11”/28cm statue of protagonist Prophet and the art book packed into a Nanosuit-themed backpack will be available for £119.99, only in “extremely limited quantities.”

See below for a rundown of those multiplayer unlocks.

– Bonus XP – Players will jump into multiplayer battles with an edge by starting with enough experience points to gain early access to all 5 preset class load-outs.
– SCAR Hologram Decoy – This special attachment to the SCAR will project a hologram image of the player, allowing them to confuse their opponents with the decoy.
– SCAR Weapon Skin – This digital camouflage skin will allow players to add a personalized touch to one of the more popular assault rifles in the game.
– Platinum Dog Tag – This special one-of-a-kind dog tag is one of over 250 that will be collectible in Crysis 2 multiplayer, helping to separate you from the rest of the field.
