BattleStrats Community Director JLesinski recently sat down with Tom Ebsworth, the Senior Community Manager for Crytek, the studio behind Crysis 2.
Some good info in that interview... can't wait for this game!
I agree, very nice interview, really looking foward to the game, this and Killzone 3 are the two on my FPS radar in the next coming months.
Killzone 3 looks like it's going to be amazing! I actually just started playing Killzone 2 to make the wait a little easier. It's not helping. I am very curious about Crysis 2 as well, but I'm a little concerned about how the console versions will be. Either way, with the TS team behind the multiplayer, it should be fun to play online, provided EA can actually put together some decent servers.
another mw2 clone. Seems like every game copies something from mw2: rdr, bbc2, me2....when will it stop? Now crysis 2 copies. Gaming industry is in trouble
How is this another MW2 clone, do you even know anything about Crysis? Your assertion that everyone copies from games that came out this gen is unbelievably stupid and makes you sound like someone who thinks "classic" gaming means pulling out the PS2 your parents bought you for your 16th birthday. FPS gaming did not begin with that steaming piece of shit you mentioned earlier. Edit: Oh, with the TS team working on the multiplayer, you can be sure the online portion won't be a safe haven for cheaters unlike MW2.
they copied. Both are fps and they shoot guns. Mw2 wannabe but they can't match the tactical gameplay of mw2. End of discussion
Tactical? Ha!! Now I know you're joking! It's a twitch shooter, only it doesn't do it as well as Quake or UT.
Just ignore the troll, Hoje.
Bah... the majority of the questions that I had interest in received the usual "we haven't released any information on that yet" tagline. If your only going to rehash information you've already shared, whats the point.
They just love doin that too.
It's EA, you know consoles will get P2P and PCs might get dedicated servers, but only if EA is still interested in showing up Activision. The level creator will probably be PC only, if it's included at all. As a PS3 owner, I just hope they take advantage of the open platform nature of the system and allow us to download PC mods, like in UT3. I'm not holding my breath, however.
PC will most likely be dedicated servers. Consoles, I don't know. Level editor is PC only, that I can guarantee, and I highly doubt there will any kind of mod support for either console version.
Panda You can't even say that there will be zero mod support for the consoles. Most likely the 360 but not the ps3.
three disagrees from a fanboy's alternate account lol. You can't even explain your pathetic self.
Really disappointed however that vehicles are missing
WTF? no vehicles? i read on xbox live crysis 2 only supports 12 players online lol.
-How many players will multiplayer support? A. Multiplayer will support a maximum of 12 players. -How big a part of the combat are the vehicles? What type of vehicles will be included in the multiplayer maps? A. This time around in Crysis 2 there will be no vehicles in multiplayer, we have streamlined the gameplay more to ensure faster and more intense action than was offered in the original Crysis. This was one of my most anticipated game this year and it was pushed back and now i find out that it's been butchered? Wtf why didn't this stay PC exclusive? Consoles already have their top franchises. I don't even think i wanna buy this anymore 12 players MAX? You cant be fuckin serious. @Fishy There better be dedicated servers. IF those mods DO happen to address those issues then I wouldn't mind but if not, well then I'm not gonna buy this game. Lol 12 players max....what a joke. And here I was hoping for a city version of power struggle
This is why I want to know about the editor. I'm sure most of that could be addressed through mods on the PC.
I want to know is when will crytek show us in game PC gameplay and is it better than killzone 3? So far crysis 2 on consoles does not look better than killzone 3 and killzone 3 has jungles just so yall know.
Pretty sure all they've shown so far is a little Dx9 gameplay. Regarding Killzone, I guess you can argue artstyle or whatever, but for sure, from a technical stand point, Crysis 2 on the PC will be better.
killzone3 doesnt even bears gears 1 graphics. gears 1 texture quality killzone's killzone2/3 and even uncharted 2. i own ps3 and 360.
Should of taken that money you spent on your consoles and invested it in some glasses. Unreal Engine offers up some lovely textures, full of detail, but Gears 1 doesnt compete with KZ3 or Uncharted 2. Gears 3 is looking nice though.
Lol, what the hell? "Crysis was an enigma. Almost universally hated as a game, while being used universally to test DX10 hardware." Yeah, a universally hated game with a 91 on metacritic...
12 player multiplayer? Thanks consoles...
You mean 360, MAG has 255 players online!!! Killzone 2 has 32 Multiplayer Resistance 2 has 64 Multiplayers online, so the 360 will be mention next time and not the Consoles. That's why i disagree with you.
With Crysis graphics? I think not.
power of the consoles has nothing to do with how many players are online. The original Xbox had 50 player online. Now saying that, 32 should be the minimum and 12 only sucks.
Pretty sure Crysis gameplay can't even match those two mentioned at all.
Come on i love the 32 player matches of crysis 1 (yeah im still playing crysis multiplayer) i f***ing love the 2+ hrs matches in power struggle
