It’s been just a few days ago when Crytek and EA teased Crysis 2 live in New York, and now we have a brand new game trailer (this time a high-res one!) plus a bunch of details about the game, so read on and let the excitement grow!

As hinted in the original teaser trailer, Crysis 2 takes place in New York which is attacked by a strange alien species – one that’s promised to be the most challenging enemy ever encountered in a computer or video game!

With a story penned by award winning science fiction writer Richard Morgan, Crysis 2 puts the players in the shoes of humanity’s last hope to save mankind from peril. We’ll be thrown in a real urban jungle where no military power is big enough to battle against the aliens – nothing except for the Nanosuit 2, the ultimate combat technology you will wear and wreak havoc amongst the aliens with.

“At Crytek, we pride ourselves on working with the most elite talent in the industry, and Richard is no exception,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek. “He has helped us take our ideas for Crysis 2 and transform them into a story that really engages the player in many new and exciting ways. His passion for his craft and for games is a perfect match for our team and we can’t wait for gamers to experience this collaboration.”
