Ruffian’s given up more on Crackdown 2 in an interview with Edge, saying the game is set in a future version of Pacific City and has all-new gameplay.
“From an environmental point of view, you probably would look at it as being an entirely new map,” said creative director Billy Thompson.
“It’s still Pacific City but further on in the timeline. We’ve altered a great deal, and think people who enjoyed the first game are going to be really pleased when they enter this one.
“And we’ve made sure the gameplay’s altered significantly.”
There’s more through there about the game’s E3 reveal and the whole zombie-infected thing.
