A German magazine PCGames has published the first few details on Crytek’s Crysis 2 which is a port from pc to consoles. And it is sounding very good indeed.
The game takes place three years after the first game in a devastated New York City where, Crytek says, players will experience plenty of surprises as well as a deeper storyline than the studio’s previous games have offered. The protagonist’s Nanosuit 2, which Crytek is very proud of, has been changed up a bit too. Going beyond the different looks, a new ‘tactics’ mode has been introduced, a mode that will help players gather information about the environment, enemy positions, as well as find out information about fallen soldiers. The suit still has a total of four modes but, as many players requested, the ‘power’ and ’speed’ modes have been combined. The destroyed big city setting allows Crytek to do more vertical level design that in turn will give more gameplay options — planning an attack from above, for example.
That VideoGameBlog reported that the article in the magazine says that it is, “one of the best looking games available on any system.” Which give me more confidence in this being a big title to watch.
