Crysis 2 ‘The Wall’ trailer impressions

“We cannot fight new wars with old weapons. Let him who desires peace prepare for war” – Prophet

A moment reminiscent of 9/11

Ouch.

Now this is a sequel I am definitely looking forward to, especially since it is, for the first time, being released on the XBox 360 and PS3. From what we’ve seen, Crysis 2, like its predecessor, looks amazing. We’ll also be seeing a couple of familiar faces too.

Nomad is back.

No longer set in an island off the east Phillipines, Crysis 2 will once again be played from the perspective of Nomad, whom you played as in the original Crysis. In a nutshell the alien invasion that was released in Crysis 1 has managed to reach New York, our ‘jungle’ of a different sort. Crysis 2 will be set in an evacuated New York, with Nomad donning the Nanosuit 2, an improvement on the first. He’s also not supposed to be wearing one, so apparantly Crynet Systems will be one of the enemies he’ll be facing besides aliens.

A deserted and desolate New York

One of the main improvements with the addition of the Nanosuit 2 is that players will be able to have “up to three modes running at a time” (Cervat Yerl, CEO and President of Crytek). This is great as it adds a new dimension to gameplay. Now players won’t be solely stealthy ninjas or powering tanks, and they’ll have the ability to combine the advantages of different modes together.

Some aliens playing 'Hide and Seek'

The nanosuit this time will have four modes: Power (speed and strength), Armour (energy drain instead of health), Infiltration (footsteps softened, temporary invisibility) and Tactical (enemy weapons named, causes of death noted). Good to note also are the multiple enhancements, namely, 20% increase in energy storage, 60x optical zoom, 32% more health and EMP shielding.

I FOUND YOU!

Well this trailer didn’t hand out too many details, besides the fact that we’re in New York, a ‘concrete jungle’. Our nanosuit still looks sweet as, and it appears that we’re getting completely owned by the alien invasion. Stay tuned for more news in the next couple of months.

Man, forget ties and coats. I want a suit like that.

    This trailer was sheer awesome. I really can’t wait for Crysis 2. The music in the background of the trailer was very very suitable xD . Looks like the aliens have changed quite a bit as well! Fingers crossed it’ll be as good as it looks now!

    i doubt in terms of multiplayer. i can’t rly think of an fps these days that can truly b called a halo-killer. Masterchief remains King of multiplayer fps’s today, unless some1 can argue substantially otherwise.

    makes me reminisce bout hte good ol’ days of GoldenEye… that was an epic game.
