Ruffian: Nine underground levels in Crackdown 2

By Johnny Cullen, Monday, 23 November 2009 10:19 GMT


Ruffian has detailed to VG247 the first pieces of info of the underground element of Crackdown 2 at a hands-on in Dundee last month.

Creative director Billy Thomson told us that there would be nine subterranean levels in the sequel.

“If you take one of the locations for a gang boss in the first game, most of them are… let me think of one location that’d be a good size. The Refinery, probably,” said Thomson.

“A little bit smaller than the Refinery. And there’s, like, nine of them. It’s a big bit of gameplay.”

Microsoft refused to go into details though on specific kits for the underground segments.

No date yet, we’re afraid.

Crackdown 2’s going cheap for the 360 massive as well at £5.85. Either way, whatever you do, you owe yourself to […]
