EA and Crytek have announced the first details on two planned special edition releases for their upcoming shooter Crysis 2. The Crysis 2 Limited Edition and the Crysis 2 Nano Edition will both feature premium packaging as well as unlockable content for the game’s multiplayer modes. Both versions are currently available for pre-order. EA also announced a closed multiplayer beta is coming this fall for Xbox 360.
The Crysis 2 Limited Edition will be shipped as the initial run of the game at no added cost, and offers four additions to the multiplayer portion of the game:
• Bonus XP – Players will jump into multiplayer battles with an edge by starting with enough experience points to gain early access to all 5 preset class load-outs.
• SCAR Hologram Decoy – This special attachment to the SCAR will project a hologram image of the player, allowing them to confuse their opponents with the decoy.
• SCAR Weapon Skin – This digital camouflage skin will allow players to add a personalized touch to one of the more popular assault rifles in the game.
• Platinum Dog Tag – This special one-of-a-kind dog tag is one of over 250 that will be collectible in Crysis 2 multiplayer, helping to separate you from the rest of the field.
The Nano Edition will include the Limited Edition as well as a steel case and an 11” statue of the game’s protagonist “Prophet” on top of a New York cab, an art book, and comes packed in a backpack modeled after the Nanosuit. The Nano Edition will not be sold in stores and will be available for $149.99.
As the “limited edition” moniker would suggest, supply is quite limited for these versions, and they’ll only be available while supplies last.
