Thomas, as those who remember the visceral, viscious original that launched alongside the Xbox 360 in 2005, is an FBI agent - or at least he was. After chasing down his serial killer prey in the first game and killing hundreds of people along the way, Thomas has decided to rid himself of his demons by drinking them to death.
The story in Condemned 2 picks up about a year after the first game, says Frank Roove, the creative director on the game at developer Monolith. Drunk and depressed, Thomas is thrust back into a more virtuous role after being smashed over the head and waking up in a very different looking world. As for the rest of the story, well, Sega's not too keen on doling out specifics quite yet.
