Gurgaon :”Crackdown 2″, the sequel to the award-winning 2007 title “Crackdown,” is finally here! One of the most anticipated games on the Xbox 360 platform, Crackdown 2 is all set to kick up a storm. It is an ultimate open-world action experience developed by Ruffian Games exclusively for Xbox 360. Featuring over-the-top action, a massive living world, stylish graphics and unmatched online capabilities, “Crackdown 2” is the most complete action experience on Xbox 360.
In the vertical, free-form world of Pacific City, tensions are high and escalating exponentially between the Agency and its opposing factions, the Cell and the Freaks. Returning to Pacific City as an advanced Agent, you’ll be the judge, jury and executioner as you reclaim the city and eliminate all threats, either solo or with friends on Xbox LIVE.
Speaking on the launch of this blockbuster game, Ashim Mathur Director Marketing – Entertainment and Devices Division, Microsoft Corporation (India) Pvt. Ltd said, “‘Crackdown 2’ is one of the most exciting action experience on Xbox 360. With the launch of this exclusive title we are further strengthening our portfolio of exclusive content on Xbox 360. Gamers prefer power, control and freedom of action while gaming and with an innovative game play, Crackdown offers just the same. We received a great response for Crackdown in India and now with the sequel that allows you to go on LIVE and play it with their friends, the ultimate four-player co-op mode, 16-player multiplayer experiences and an all-new party system, we are confident that Crackdown 2 will be bigger.”
“Crackdown 2” continues the award-winning game play of its predecessor with new enemies (the Cell and the Freaks) that stand in the way of the Agency’s goal to bring Pacific City back under control. After the events in the first “Crackdown,” a dangerous virus was released and those who were infected – the Freaks – began ravaging the city. A civilian resistance, called the Cell, also formed to take the fight into their own hands by mounting offenses against the Agency. Players return as Agents in “Crackdown 2” to once again bring peace to Pacific City – by any means possible in one of the most explosive, interactive worlds for gamers to explore and experiment with.
The game is modeled similarly to its predecessor Crackdown, a third-person shooter in open world game play. The player character is a super-human officer for the city-funded “Agency”, known simply as the “Agent”. Building upon the groundbreaking success of its predecessor, “Crackdown 2” will elevate the open-world genre to unprecedented levels with the ultimate cooperative and competitive multiplayer experiences. Like Crackdown, the game will allow for on-line co-operative play in the main game, but will now support up to four players. The game will also feature competitive multiplayer modes for up to sixteen players. While the original Crackdown supported System Link playing for co-op, Crackdown 2 won’t be featuring the same option.
Crackdown 2 will be available at all leading organised retail stores across the country at an estimated retail price of Rs. 2399. You can also log onto www.microsoftstore.co.in and buy the game online.
