Crysis 2 Story Trailer

NYC. The Big Apple. The City That Never Sleeps. The jewel of the Empire State needs to add ground zero for alien invasion to its resume. The first story trailer for Crysis 2, developed by Crytek and published by EA, begins with brief slices of recent history, including a plague-like outbreak and imposing martial law to keep citizens safe. However, these threats seems like a simple case of the sniffles once the real danger is revealed, an alien race that appears to have lain dormant and is now waking up to take a scenic tour of New York. Various real world NYC landmarks are laid to waste as the aliens being their conquest. Humanity is on the ropes and you are our last hope. Garbed in a bio-nanotech suit you are the only one who can stop the invasion.

While we have heard this setup before, the gorgeous visuals, including stunning New York landmarks, the deadly serious story, and varied gameplay mechanics keep me optimistic that the Crysis series first outing on the PS3 will be something special when it hits stores March 22nd.
