It seems that almost every shooter's multiplayer mode hides its goodies behind persistent progression nowadays and Crysis 2 is no exception. The progression in Crytek's shooter is detailed in a lengthy new trailer, focusing on nanosuit unlocks.

Unlockable upgrades and modules covered range from small boosts, such as faster stealth transitions, to larger bonuses, like the mighty 'air stomp' attack. According to the trailer, it'll take players around sixty hours to reach the top of the ranking classes.

Crysis 2 is due out for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 22. A multiplayer demo was briefly available to Xbox Live Gold members and is due on PC before launch.

    Am I the only one who's terribly unexited about this game? Everything looks generic, nothing really seems new or pushes my interest. The annoying infomercial voice in the ad didnt help either.

    Anyway, I'll probably pass this or wait for a price drop, looking forward to Brink though!

      I still want to play it but I am in no way looking forward to it like the first one, it does look generic.

      1 billion games have the NY setting. But SP will probably still be fun enough.

          Don't you see what they do? " so many ny games " " so many jungle games" "so many ww2 games" "so many vietnam games" " so many blah blah" Everyone lives in their own bubble
          I guess there are other mp games that allow you to customize super abilities and allow you to kick cars onto other players, jump 15 feet up etc etc..

            Or they just want to do their own take on the setting with their own little twist.

            Either way its been done a lot and so eventually you basically see the same old look over and over again. But it can still be fun. If its fun who cares. If its not its one less played in a beat to death setting.

            hmm, 90% of those are not fps multiplayer shooters, but to be fair, you didn't say that. On the other hand, would you say, them using DC or Jersey, or Seattle is any better since their haven't been "1 billion games" in that setting? Might as well say, ugh, Earth...comeon! I want a multiplayer game, that is based on a sequel to a earth based game, done inside a black hole...with nudity.

      You're not the only one. And I'm also looking forward to Brink a thousand times more than to this tech demo.

      Nope same here, and I adored the first one. I will be very happy if Crysis 2 turns out to be as good as the first one, but so far there has been no indication of that whatsoever.

      1. You can jump attack your enemies with splash damage.
      2. You can pickup/kick heavy objects into/onto your opponents.
      3. You can track their steps
      4. You have a bloody nanosuit
      5. You are in NY city
      6. You can jump from building to building/go up and down them
      7. You have the ability to be very fast, strong, tanked.

      Yup, all those are generic and old. I remember doing all that in CoD, MoH, GoW, Battlefield.

        Or you know...in Crysis 1. Save for the NY thing of course, which has been done more than enough.

          1, 3, 5, 6(mostly due to the sheer size of the buildings) are all new in this game...that's 4 out of 7 that I listed. Plus the comparison is to other games not to Crysis 1, in which all 7 are new, other than 4, 7 since 4 is the same as 7 basically.

        I think you are going to find a lot of that quite restricted by a linear single player campaign. Multiplayer is already a lost cause.

      You are not alone. I expect single player to be a by the numbers, largely on rails console affair. We already know the multiplayer basically plays like call of duty with the occaisional use of nanosuit powers. I thought crysis 1 was a fair/okay game so I don't see myself buying crysis 2; not with so many other good games to play.

      Looking forward to Brink. Passing on Crysis 2. TBH, I just didn't like the first one and felt they pulled a bait and switch based on the demo. Cool story?

        The said part is, they're going to blame this game's failure on the fact that they focused so much on the PC.
