Although there have been no official statements about the plot, a brochure for the game claims that it will be set four years after the events of Crysis.
The new game is set in New York City and once again players will have freedom of choice when it comes to what weapons and customizations you use. Crytek decided that they wanted to avoid making another game set in
the jungle so the urban setting is a great change. The urban
environment offers players more options when it comes to how to progress
and planning attacks. Players of Crysis 2 will be able to do new things
such as jump between floors and buildings. The new Nanosuit has new

Nanosuit 2. The Nanosuit 2 gives players more freedom in their options
of how to tackle situations on the battlefield. For the first time in

have stated their intention to surpass the original game graphically and
have noted that fighting in the game will be "catastrophically
Crytek have also claimed that the game will have lower system
requirements than the original game.
So what is your opinion about the Crytek Engine?
