If you have the PS3 version of Crysis 2 you may have noticed that the game is dishing out double XP this weekend to those of you who are playing online, this is frustrating for Xbox 360 and PC gamers, however Crytek suggest that it is a welcome back offering following the great PlayStation Network outage of 2011.
The double XP promotion started roughly 9 hours ago and will end on Monday 11th at 11am (BST), this equates to roughly 3am PST and 6am ET (Monday). Just in case you were wondering this is a completely unrestricted double xp weekend, which means that you can rack up XP no-matter what game mode or map you are playing on.
Crytek also suggest that the double XP weekend has been launched to celebrate the release of the PS3 update for Crysis 2, you can see full details regarding patch 1.04 here, don’t get too excited because most of the changes fix very slight bugs in the game. Despite the lack of exciting changes we are sure that PS3 gamers welcomed the patch, however some people suggest that organizing squads/parties could be smoother, whilst others say that match balancing is way off. What aspects of the game would you like to see improved? Feel free to leave suggestions in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Although the double XP weekend won’t completely erase the PSN downtime from your memory it does at least give PS3 gamers something exciting for a few days, to our knowledge the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game will not be receiving a similar promotion any time soon, so think yourself lucky PS3 owners!
PC gamers would have loved to have access to double XP this weekend as they recently received a patch which gave them DirectX 11 visuals and another patch which gave them enhanced textures, double xp weekend would have been a great excuse to drool over the game’s graphics for the weekend.
We would like to hear from you if you are planning to make the most out of the double XP offering, if so, how many hours will you be playing the game before the cut off point? Let us know in the comments section below.
