Crysis 2 set in New York City, Alien Invasion

C2 I all ready predicted this long ago, while watching some tech demos for CryEngine 3, and there were some scenes of what definitely looked like Crysis 2, and it was set in an urban environment.

Well, the cover of PlayStation: The Official Magazine’s March edition confirms this by having the phrase "Aliens invading NYC? No problem! Blast their faces off with the Nanosiut 2.0!" on the front, and in addition to this, Gary Steinman, the editor-in-chief of the magazine tweeted about it:

"Crysis 2 set in NYC!!"

I guess it should have been expected. Look at it this way: I got some major Predator vibes while playing Crysis. This was mainly due to the cloak ability that you can enable within your nanosuit interface, and you blend in with the environment.

So, Predator was set in the jungle on an island, as was Crysis, but Predator 2 was set in the city, and now so is Crysis 2. The only thing to worry about here is that Predator rocked although it was a bit cheesy in the beginning, it got better as it went along, while Predator 2 came off as just laughable – quite a good comedy actually. I hope this doesn’t happen to Crysis 2. But let’s face it: who wants to spend even more time in the same setting? I dunno…

Crysis in New York City. So besides facing the aliens and stuff, there will no doubt be your civilians, and military, the police, and perhaps the odd bum, wino, or knife-wielding psychotic who “wants your suit or your life” to deal with.

Crysis was a PC exclusive, while Crysis 2 will make an appearance on Xbox 360 as well as the PS3, and it should come out sometime in Electronic Arts’ next fiscal year (April 1, 2010 - March 31, 2011).

People who buy the issue of PTOM will likely scan some pages and put some stuff up on the internet. So we’ll get to see and read more about the game soon. PC Gamers all ready seem to be upset that the game isn’t a PC exclusive. Now come on guys, just be glad we’ll be able to play it all.

I’m not 100% convinced it has much chance of making this year. Maybe not as convinced as I was last year. Next year’s looking better.

By the way, don’t you think that nanosuit looks pretty cool? On the outside it does anyway. Imagine the little, scrawny person on the inside. Can’t say I’m really noticing any differences from the first one, at least externally. Maybe there’s more improvements as regards the suit’s abilities. I hope you can upgrade them, and make the damn cloak last longer.

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
