The second installment of the multi-award winning Crysis series, Crysis 2 is a visually stunning FPS set in the urban jungle of New York City and built on Crytek’s proprietary, state-of-the-art CryENGINE 3.
The world has been ravaged by a series of climatic disasters and society is on the verge of total breakdown. Now the aliens introduced in the original Crysis have returned with a full invasion force, bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind. Part one of their plan is simple: To rip the heart out of Earth's most iconic city.
In New York, the alien invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city's myriad inhabitants with brutal epidemic speed. Its systems are in chaos, its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City as never seen before.
Neither paramilitary law enforcement nor the might of the US military machine can stand against the invaders, and all who choose not to flee are dead men walking. Surviving in this maelstrom of death will require technology beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen.One man will inherit those means to survive.
One supersoldier, wielding the combat technology of the future with Nanosuit 2.0, will make a last stand in this urban jungle in a bid to save humanity from destruction.
Crysis 2 was the first Crytek game to be released on multiple platforms – the Xbox 360®, the PlayStation® 3, and the PC.
Crysis 2 introduces the Nanosuit 2.0, a new and improved version of the one used in Crysis 1, which lets players express themselves in a much better way than before. It’s more about individual play styles rather than prescribed modes: the technologically advanced Nanosuit 2.0 lets gamers switch back and forth between two key tactical modes, Stealth and Armor. Either surprise the enemy with a creeping attack or simply blast through each obstacle.
Crysis 2 moves away from the jungles of the original game and takes place in the heart of New York City, offering spectacular opportunities for vertical gameplay. The player can jump between different stories or onto vehicles, drop down into craters and fissures in the city streets, and leap from one building to another.
The urban environment also offers a landscape littered with items that can become deadly weapons in the right hands. Crysis 2 combines the intensity of linear FPS games with the open sandbox gameplay that Crytek and Crysis are known for – making for an amazing gaming experience.
Crysis 2 will available in true stereoscopic 3D on all three platforms, Xbox 360, PlayStation3 and PC.
The AI, both in human and alien form, plays a very important role in Crysis 2. Players will endure challenging encounters with unprecedented AI in the game. AI reacts to player actions while simultaneously navigating the game environment in new and interesting ways. The new setting of the game, New York City, extends the traditional Crysis sandbox experience with great possibilities for vertical gameplay – something which the AI will definitely use to their advantage. Expect to be challenged at every turn!
