First in-game Crysis 2 footage appears

The first significant chunk of Crysis 2 gameplay footage has emerged in a GameTrailers exclusive interview. See the footage below, or, if you're lazy, watch the abridged version on YouTube:

This is console footage, but even so, it looks fantastic. Wait for it... wait for it... do you hear that? That's someone complaining about screen tearing, and whining that the one-time PC benchmark has been ruined by consoles. Oh bother.

The biggest questions we have aren't about the engine's visual capabilities, but about how the game will actually play. How destructible is the new urban setting in comparison with Crysis' jungle setting? How many of these buildings can we actually enter? Has it become more linear, like Killzone and Gears of War, or will it be more akin to Just Cause and Prototype? This is all discussed in our first look preview, but we still don't know for sure how it will play.

And if you do just want to see more of the engine, check out the GDC demo from a couple months ago. Yes, it's all shiny and neat and stuff:

    @JohnnyMaverick: Actually, If you want to play Crysis at 'decent' settings you'll have to shell out quite a bit of money. More than most are willing to pay. Crysis 2 looks awesome on consoles though.

    Brilliant. So I see all the enemies now wear masks; I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that consoles wouldn't be able to handle to individual facial animations en masse, as seen in the Korean enemies from the first game? Graphically, this game looks like's it's been comprised by the necessity to facilitate a multi-platform release, which can't be a good thing. In fact, since the first Crysis, there's been nothing on the PC that's pushed graphical boundaries. Until cloud gaming becomes a reality, and proprietary hardware becomes redundant, I think we're destined to live a life of poorly-optimised, graphically inferior, multi-platform releases.

    > i dont want to shell out thousands for a > super computer that can only hold crisis > and nothing else O.o Yea... overexagurate much? 1. these days to buy a pc that can play Crysis you woulden't even have to break 1000 and 2. there are many more games on the pc than Crysis. Anyway, other than that, Crysis 1 looked great but the writing was shit, if Crysis 2 follows the same pattern then console gamers should love it ! ^_^

    Im so happy this is coming to the consoles. I've heard so much about crisis, but i dont want to shell out thousands for a super computer that can only hold crisis and nothing else.

    haha, they are that good at technology but still make the world's most generic fps... emotional.
  • R-Ape - June 8, 2010 11:25 p.m.

    So wait. Is this coming out for Console??? or why does it have in parentheses (console)?
