Crysis 2 set three years after original, more details on Nanosuit 2

TVGB’s pulled out new details from the PCGames Crysis 2 mag scans that hit last week, claiming the game is set three years after the first title and adding new information on Nanosuit 2′s Tactics mode.

Tactics mode will help you gather information about the environment, enemy positions, and dead soldiers, apparently. The suit’s Power and Speed modes have been combined, so it’ll have four modes in total.

As we reported towards the end of last week, the Tactics mode also allows the player to get info on weapon drops and eavesdrop on enemy chatter.

Crysis 2 is set in New York – as opposed to the original’s island – and the vertical setting is to allow for general vertical shit. You know, like up and down stuff.

The mag saw the game’s 360 version, and was knocked out, by that account.

It’s out for PC, 360 and PS3 this year.

    4 powers instead of 5, huh? Of course that doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that a d-pad has 4 directions and 4 selectable powers total is therefore a number better suited to consoles? Let’s start an internet petition against the dumbing down of Crysis! :D

    Sheer irony Crysis 2 is coming out on consoles to. And even more ironic is that they’d rather demo the 360 version.

    Oh dear, did BDH just bring the topic of conversation back round to PC game sales vs console game sales?

    Did your MMO account expire or something? Everybody knows nobody uses PCs to play proper games any more. Just look at the software charts for proof. See all those PC titles in the top 20? No? That’s ‘cos nobody buys PC games.

    Thanks for playing! Bye now!

    Doubt it’ll flop as hard as the first one atleast, what with it being on consoles this time round it’ll actually do some sales unlike the original.

    Actually apparently the first sold quite well for a pc game; it’s just that due to piracy they could have got ALOT more.

    Gheritt White,

    The reason you don’t see PC games in the top 20 list is simply because they’re not listed under that category by the NPD.

    In addition, I’d ask you to look at the sales charts for retailers in European countries besides the United Kingdom. It is rare for a console or handheld game to break the top 10 list on a Polish retailer website.

    Contrary to what the American media is making you believe, PC game sales have grown over the past decade, it’s just that the American consumer has shifted over to console gaming for mainstream entertainment needs, while regions like Europe and Asia have seen increased PC gaming sales. If the sales situation was as absymal as it is in American retail in other countries and digital distribution outlets, then we wouldn’t even see PC versions of most multplatform games be released.

    The whole concept of exclusivity is dying this generation, not only on PC, but on individual consoles. It simply costs too much to develop a third party game with the software sales of only one platform. You point to a franchise like Crysis going multiplatform. Well, last generation, it would have been unheard of for Capcom to pour development dollars into developing superior PC versions of their titles. If you want to make money on a third-party game, you have to release on at least two of the three, “hardcore” platforms. Not just PC. Not just PS3. Not just Xbox 360.

    And last I checked, there have been plenty of console games that have sold less than 1.5 million copies within their first half year of sales. Crysis sales were phenomenal considering the fact that it only appealed to a small segment of the overall PC market.
