Crytek has confirmed to CVG that Crysis 2 won't use EA's Online Pass system.
"All we can say/confirm is that we aren't using Online Pass for Crysis 2," the studio said in a brief statement confirming earlier reports.
It is thought that Crytek was able to opt out of using the Online Pass because it's an independent developer working under the EA Partners program, rather than an EA owned studio.
Designed both to discourage and monetise second-hand game sales, as well as offer a way to fund the expenses of running online gaming servers, the Online Pass system requires second-hand buyers to pay for access to multiplayer features in EA games.
Thankfully there'll be no multiplayer lockout for Crysis 2 though. According to OXM, which awarded the game 9/10 in its world first review, Crysis 2's online experience boasts "some of the most exciting, angry and satisfying action you'll ever have".
