Apart from a trailer that showed a poor little thug get cracked-down and shot, there really wasn't any info given for Crackdown 2 back at the E3 Microsoft presscon. Ruffian Games hasn't been talking as much as we'd like, but we did get a few words...from the game's official site. Check it out.
This is all they're willing to part with, at least for now:
The game lets you be judge, jury, and executioner for a huge, fully explorable city. Crackdown 2 takes multiplayer gaming to unprecedented levels for the ultimate co-op and competitive multiplayer experience, providing you and your friends with the complete freedom to explore, destroy, and play your way as you restore justice and peace to Pacific City by any means necessary.
Okay, so multiplayer is about the only thing that this info really confirms. That's good enough news for now. I suppose Ruffian will be ready to roll out more in the coming weeks.
