Crysis 2 Strikes New Release Date
We knew Crysis 2 wouldn't make it this year (the team decided the game needed a "better release window") but we still had an ugly "TBA" for a release date.
Now, we have the date nailed down. Announced at the game's Twitter page, the highly anticipated sequel will launch on March 22, 2011 in North America and on March 25 in Europe. This allows the FPS to avoid competition with holiday heavy hitters like Call of Duty: Black Ops, Halo: Reach and Medal of Honor. The sequel puts players inside that nifty nanosuit again but this time, the suit has a few upgrades that really turns you into a true-blue super-soldier. Speed boosts, camo, physical enhancements, and more, plus the fact that instead of the natural jungle environments from the original, we get to blast away in New York City. Also, let's not forget that console gamers never got the first Crysis; this sequel will be available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in addition to the PC. If you want a good look at the gameplay, there's a new trailer up on the PSN. It looks great but Crytek's claims about it being the "best-looking game ever" seem to be falling a little short in our eyes.
But anyway, it should be a fantastic shooter and it's probably a good thing that it distanced itself from the big boys in October and November.
