Itching to collect stat-building orbs? Well you might not have to wait much longer. The long awaited sequel to the hit Xbox-360 game from 2007 returns to the platform on July 6th.
Crackdown 2 is ready for anyone who has not played the previous game. However, those returning gamers might not recognize Pacific City. The story takes its cue from the original game, with slightly more destruction, new weapons, and zombies. Yes…zombies. A virus has unknowingly been released in the city transforming much of the population into mutated “freaks” that seek to challenge our hero. The answer? Stay atop the buildings during nighttime. Hence, another new feature: a new day/night dynamic.
Tired of playing solo? A returning feature from the original Crackdown is the Co-op feature. However, new to the franchise is the sequel’s 16-player competitive Deathmatch mode that will allow players to plasma grenade their fellow man.
Ruffian games seeks to improve on the minor setbacks of the first game, as well as add new dynamic features and more weapons to make a fresh new game. Look for Crackdown 2 in stores this summer.
