Nanosuits and Weaponry Abound in Crysis 2’s Multiplayer

March 6, 2011Written by Tyler Minarik

Crysis 2 is lining up to take some shots at the competitive FPS market, and it’s time to find out what’s going to set it apart from the rest of the multiplayer shooters.

Crytek has made it quite apparent that they’re confident their upcoming sci-fi shooting game is going to be a huge success, and it’s time to find out why. They’ve released trailers detailing the features of the multiplayer portion of the game, and hopefully it’s enough to set it apart from the competition. Every player in the game is going to have a nanosuit to assist them in battle, granting special abilities that will allow for new tactics in battle. As players progress, various augmentations will unlock according to play style, tailoring the upgrades to each person’s preferences. To compliment that, they’ve included cool weapons with a slew of customizable options.

The combination of stealth action with special melee maneuvers and high tech weaponry looks like a lot of fun. We’ll have to wait just a little longer to find out if it’s enough to blow away the competition in the flooded FPS market, since a demo is coming on March 15th, and the full game releases March 22nd.
