Crytek Says No to Online Pass

By Kyle Durant

Gamertag Radio has recently confirmed that Crysis 2 won’t make use of EA’s Online Pass. The Online Pass, too many gamers dismay, charges you $10 for any online component you buy used to an EA published game. “As an independent developer working under the EA Partners program, Crytek was reportedly able to opt out of using the Online Pass.”

I only hope Crytek opted out of using Online Pass just to be nice, rather than them not being sure if their multiplayer is any good. Thus leading gamers to trade back in their copy of Crysis 2. Either way, the Crysis 2 multiplayer shows great innovation…let’s just hope that innovation is enjoyable. Expect Crysis 2 to release on March 22nd for the PS3, 360, and PC.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation.

(Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
