Del Rey Books, a branch of Ballantine Books owned by Random House which specializes in science fiction and fantasy books, will publish a novel on Crysis 2 in March titled Crysis: Legion.
Written by Canadian science fiction and HUGO-nominated author Peter Watts, Crysis: Legion tells the story of Crysis 2 which has New York City being invaded by an alien army as a plague sweeps across the human race.
Here’s the full blurb regarding the story from the press release:
In CRYSIS: LEGION, terrifying armored alien invaders stalk the streets of New York, while a nightmare plague strikes down its human population with brutal speed. The city is in chaos, its streets and skyline in smashed and flaming ruin. Nothing can stand against the invaders, leaving New Yorkers with a stark choice – flee or die. Just to survive in this inferno will require technology and armor beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen. One man will inherit that means to survive. His mission: shake off death, carry the fight to the aliens and drive them back.
Crysis 2 is out on March 25 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
