Gamers expecting to take Crysis 2 online when it finally launches March 22, will not have to worry about paying for EA’s Online Pass which is now in place to monetize game sales and fund the expense of online game servers. Confirmed to CVG, Crytek has stated;
“All we can say/confirm is that we aren’t using Online Pass for Crysis 2,”
This more than likely has to do with the fact that Crytek is independantly owned and not under the EA umbrella. Online Pass requires gamers to have to pay for multiplayer access in EA games.
