PSA: Crysis 2 Double XP Weekend Well Underway

If you were looking for an excuse to get back into Crysis 2, then how about a double-XP weekend to tempt you back?

This weekend Crytek are dishing out double-XP across all three platforms just for playing. That’s any mode, any map, any gun, whatever. Shoot peeps, do objectives, earn lots of XP. Simples.

What’s better is that Crytek will also be dishing out prizes for the best XP earners on each platform. As Crytek so elegantly put it, “It doesn't matter how much XP you've got now, it's all about how much you can earn during the double-XP weekend, so anyone can join in and show 'em who's boss!”

Prizes include:

  • Crysis 2 Figurine
  • Crysis 2 Nanosuit T-Shirt
  • Crysis Legion Novel
  • Crysis Lanyard
  • Crysis DogTag
  • MyCrysis Sticker/Badges

The double-XP event ends on Monday, 30th May at 12am (PST), so get killing them fools, yo!

[Thanks Lewis]

About time they had a double exp weekend. I only played it long enough to boost my 45 to get Tooled Up, which glitched on me the first time.. GG Crytek.

@3 is that because they're the only ones with a pc to run it? :P J/K. Not sure how ridiculous this game is compared to the first in terms of pc requirements.

Well, if you can still boost capture the relay, then that renders everything useless, except for the double exp.

@6
it's nothing compared to the first Crysis. a medium rig could play this on max settings, whereas very few high end rigs could run the first when it came out. there is a complete lack of advanced graphic settings and still runs on DirectX 9. it was pretty much designed to be run on consoles, hence why it has bombed on PC. just curious if it's popular on Xbox?

@10, It takes me forever to get a game, even on Team Deathmatch. My NAT is open and got a 80+ Mbps connection. And when I find a game, I always see the same people xD

So I starts today? I could've swore they said it started Thursday. Oh well. It seemed like those few matches I raped in, I didn't get a whole lot of XP.

Just FYI you don't get double exp for Instant Action (aka Free for All). You do in every other mode though.

@12. It did start on Thursday. It's a shame that this game doesn't have much of an online community as it is pretty fun at times. I can understand it though, there is terrible lag and connection issues with this game.

played a couple game, one gave me a load of xp but i think its because i did a challenge, but other ones didn't gave me that much, maybe its basically cause im used to GOW or COD xp setting. Whatever is the case, ill force myself to play this the remaining 2 days, but i doubt i will ever do my lev 50...

I just hate the nanosuit aspect of the game, i will have to see if i can earn enought xp in classic once i unlock it, if there is player playing it, cause its the only way i could really enjoy this game. Lets face it, graphics are beautifull, aiming and such is good, but the whole suit thingy piss me off so much, can't run cause it low down you energy so when you face a dude you cant have armor or whatever, god i hate this armor crap

I'm really happy they are doing this because it gives everyone a reason to go back in and play the game again.

I'll definitely have to play it today.

Patch the hit detection and lag, and I'd gladly play this. Can't even find games on the other game modes except TIA and Capture the flag.

Yeah, with all that lag 2x xp isn't worth it. This is one game that NEEDS dedicated servers, it could have been beautiful.

Thank god I am not the only one having this issue with lag/hit detection. I will straight away on people and all of sudden bam I am dead. Very frustrating. I started on Friday and I have been able to get to level 35 today. No way I am making it to 50. Trying for 45 for the tooled up. I loved the single player but I beat it on supersoldier already and this multiplayer just cannot hold me in current state. I locked in $23 trade to Amazon today. Put is towards Rage or Arkham Asylum.

Well, double XP might not be much, but throwing in prizes - that's something other devs should take note of! Nicely done !!
