is back on Steam
after being yanked in June
because "an agreement with another download service" violated Steam's terms of service. The new, improved Crysis 2
is subtitled the "Maximum Edition" and it includes all the content in the limited edition, plus the Retaliation and Decimation DLC packs, all for $40.
Those who snagged Crysis 2
on Steam before it was pulled can get Maximum Edition
for half off through June 12 at 10 a.m. PST. EA's other pulled or unreleased titles on Steam – namely Mass Effect 3
and Battlefield 3
– are still absent.
The new version, by including all the DLC, sidesteps the restrictions
that kept the game off in the first place.
