Preview: First Look at Crysis 2


“The fact EA chose to unveil the world premiere of Crysis 2 to a throng of journalists at a swanky shindig at the Tribeca Grand in the heart of New York City is no coincidence. Taking place several years after the original game, Crysis 2 brings the conflict against the alien invaders from the dense tropical jungles of the Philippines to the decimated urban jungle of the Big Apple. It’s a move that’s designed to change the pace and give players a stronger emotional connection to the catastrophic events that unfold in the game.”
