German magazine PCgames got some hands on time with Crysis 2, the sequel to Crysis which was one to one of the most technically impressive games of 2007.
Crysis 2 takes place in a destroyed New York 3 years after the original title. The developer didn’t go into the story beyond the fact it takes place 3 years later, but they did assure fans it will have a deeper story then the last.
On the gameplay side the new Crysis 2 suit has a new mode called “Tatics” mode which allows players to obtain information on enemy locations, the enviroment, and retrieve data from dead soldiers. Despite the new addition, the new suit only has four modes still. This is because the “Power” and “Speed” mode in the last title have been combined into one mode.
The developer also noted that there is a more varied level design in the title. Specifically that the New York environment allowed the developers to do some vertical level design as well thanks to all those wonderfully tall buildings that reside there.
Crysis 2 is set for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, but currently only holds a “TBA” release date.
