Crysis 2 is a science fiction first-person shooter video game developed by German video game developer Crytek and published by Electronic Arts. This is the second game of a planned trilogy. It will be released on March 22 2011 in North America, March 25 in Europe.
The game is set in New York City in the year 2023 (three years after the events of the first game), which has since been evacuated due to alien infestation. Similar to its predecessor, Crysis 2 will provide freedom to customize weaponry and abilities. Crytek wanted to avoid making another game set in a jungle environment, as were Far Cry and Crysis; New York City has been dubbed an "urban jungle". The urban atmosphere offers more options in how to progress and plan attacks. Players will be able to navigate between floors and buildings, as well as a destroyed cityscape.
