Crysis 2 First Look in NYC Tonight; Countdown Begins

According to an official tweet by Crytek posted earlier today, something strange is afoot in New York's Times Square this evening -- something that has to do with a sneak peek at the developer's highly-anticipated upcoming first-person-shooter sequel, Crysis 2.


The announcement reads:

The invasion begins in Times Square TONIGHT @ 10:00, 10:20 & 10:40 -- Get an early first look at Crysis 2!

The accompanying SOSNewYork link directs users to a brand new Crysis 2 countdown site, which is currently ticking down to an undisclosed happening at 5AM PST on Friday, April 9th. Let the speculative anticipation commence!

Little has been revealed about Crysis 2 so far (beyond the screenshots above), but we know the title is headed to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year, in addition to the expected PC version.
