Crytek have cleared up a bit of confusion around the plot of the Crysis story. For some time now there have been two slightly different stories running side-by-side around the net. Here's the new official plot...
it would have been great if they told what those two "slightly different" stories were for ignorant people like me.
Here is the old story:
"Set in the year 2020, you play as Jake Dunn, a united states delta force operater. Dunn along with his squad mates incuding a fleet of navy aircraft carriers, have been sent to investigate an asteroid which has been uncovered by a team of U.S. archaeologists
The North Korean Government quickly seals off the island chain before the US forces arrive. On arrival, it's your job to force your way through literally 100's of korean militants with the goal of getting closer to the asteroid. Amid rising tensions between the US and North Koreans, the asteroid suddenly bursts open, revealing a massive 2km high alien ship. The ship generates an immense ice sphere, freezing a vast portion of the island and drastically altering the global weather system. The invasion of Earth has begun.
The two rival nations unite to stop the aliens and save mankind. The newly formed alliance fight epic battles against the marauding Aliens. With hope rapidly fading, the player must lead a crack squad through lush tropical jungle, harsh frozen landscapes, and finally, into the heart of the alien ship itself for the ultimate Zero G encounter with the aliens.
As you play through the story, many intriguing questions will be asked and answered and the sad history of Jake Dunn will slowly be revealed.
The story contains many dynamic and persistant elements. You'll often receive optional missions which offer rewards to those willing to take them on. The outcome of your missions won't be decided until you play them. More is yet to be learnt about the dynamics of the story."
Agreed. I didnt know about a second one either.
Thanks for the info TnS. The big difference is in the details. For a minute there I thought the whole story has changed.
I knew one version of the story, I didn't know the main character's name(I wish they didn't give him a name, he wears that nano suit at all times, why not leave him a mystery?). Who cares? Chicken-saving is still going to be fun.
