Crysis 2 to pass on Online Pass

Written by David Stellmack

No ‘one use code’ to lock out used buyers
Developer Crytek has confirmed that their upcoming release of Crysis 2 (that is being released though Electronic Arts’ partners program) will not use EA’s Online Pass, the standard for nearly all recent releases from the publisher.

The fact that Crysis 2 isn’t using the Online Pass code means that players that opt to purchase a used copy of Crysis 2 will be able to play the game online. No code or purchase is required for online play. Normally, titles that have come from EA include a code that is necessary to unlock the online play for the title, or users have to pay $10 to purchase the multiplayer unlock from the console store.

The reason that Crysis isn’t using the Online Pass system has more to do with the fact that Crytek is not an EA studio and the fact that EA’s distribution arrangement is though their partners program. From the whispers we hear, the Online Pass was an option that Crytek elected not to take advantage of, which is good news for those who buy their titles used.

Thank you crytek. While I'm going to be playing on the pc, it's nice to know they care about the people, not the money... at least a little more then EA does. Online pass=I no buy game, end of story.

They need to fix the issue involving the multiplayer beta. A lot of people can't login into the game, including myself!

How many times did you try Create Account? the night the demo was released (talking PC), i did it once. i was also getting the invalid name messages, and didnt try again til the next day, when i tried Create Account again. then everything was smooth. also, dont click the box to remember the username and password, until you successfully login.

hope this helps.
