Back in April, various sites posted leaked screenshots of a new multiplayer map pack for Crysis 2 entitled “Retaliation,” but few other details surfaced. Now, EA has handed us the official trailer for the upcoming map pack, and with it an announced release date: May 17, 2011.
The newly released trailer highlights four new maps: Park Avenue, Transit, Shipyard, and Compound. According to EA, the maps are supported across all multiplayer game types.
The Crysis 2 DLC is smartly scheduled for May 17 to allow some breathing room between it and the 800 lb. gorilla that is the Black Ops Escalation Map Pack. We’d venture a guess that the Retaliation DLC will only set you back 800 Microsoft Points ($10) as opposed to Escalation’s 1200MS Points. Of course for PC and PS3 owners (pending the PSN coming back online), this could quench your thirst while you wait for the 360’s timed exclusivity of the newest Black Ops DLC to expire.
