Crytek has released information on two editions of their latest graphic powerhouse, Crysis 2. The special edition of the game is going to cost the same as the standard edition of the game and will have little more than some DLC content. Here is the details, right from the press release:”
- Bonus XP – Players will jump into multiplayer battles with an edge by starting with enough experience points to gain early access to all 5 preset class load-outs.
- SCAR Hologram Decoy – This special attachment to the SCAR will project a hologram image of the player, allowing them to confuse their opponents with the decoy.
- SCAR Weapon Skin – This digital camouflage skin will allow players to add a personalized touch to one of the more popular assault rifles in the game.
- Platinum Dog Tag – This special one-of-a-kind dog tag is one of over 250 that will be collectible in Crysis 2 multiplayer, helping to separate you from the rest of the field.”
Now for the super fans Crytek has offered an “extremely limited” edition of the game which is called the Nano Edition and it “will include the Limited Edition housed in a steel case plus an 11” / 28 cm statue of the game’s hero “Prophet” on top of a New York taxi cab, a high-quality art book, all packaged inside a backpack modeled after the Nanosuit itself.” It will not be available in stores, and can only be acquired via pre-order for $149.99 / £119.99 / EUR 129.99.
The Nano Edition sounds pretty epic, but I don’t think I am a big enough fan to warrant that price. Also, keep in mind that there is also a closed Beta coming to the Xbox 360 this fall to get you even more pumped for the game.
