Crytek today has made available the Crysis 2 Decimation Pack (Paid DLC) for PC and XBOX360 through the in-game store. This update includes 5 "new" maps and 2 new weapons (ffs, a smoke grenade zz). Rather worryingly, there is still no official word from the developers on the release dates of the much anticipated DirectX 11 support in CryEngine 3/Crysis 2 PC.

Latest: In another stunning development, the Crysis 2 PC title has been pulled from STEAM.

Rather worryingly, there is still no official word from the developers on the much anticipated DirectX 11 support in CryEngine 3.

The "new" maps are:

  • 5th Avenue
  • Chasm
  • Plaza
  • Prism
  • Apartments

Weapons:

Gamers will be disappointed in Crytek/EA's choice to emulate the money grubbing Activision/Call of Duty model that fragments the online multiplayer community by introducing paid "map packs"  (usually recycled single playerlevels) . There is almost always a dearth of players in online servers running these DLC levels.

Instead, we wish that these companies would go the way of the much vaunted Valve/Team Fortress 2 model of continuous free content updates/fixes and community support tools through STEAM which would deliver good replay value, spawn a deep rooted and loyal following, and consequently a long retail shelf life that would delight their shareholders.
