News: Go behind-the-scenes with the game's multiplayer modes and have "Fun With Friends."
Microsoft has kept a tight leash on information related to Crackdown 2, the sequel to one of the Xbox 360's most underrated games. But that leash is about to be loosed as the Ruffian Games-developed sandbox game has been given an official release date and a new behind-the-scenes look.
Crackdown 2 will touch down in stores on July 6 in North America, July 8 in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and July 9 in Europe. In celebration of this massive worldwide launch, Microsoft and Ruffian have also unveiled the the game's first video documentary, titled "Fun With Friends." Fun With Friends is the opening salvo of a three-part series "exploring different facets of the game":
"Fun With Friends features interviews with Ruffian Games Creative Director Billy Thomson, Producer James Cope, Senior Engineer David Hynd and Senior Mission Designer Dean Smith as they discuss what it takes to design a living, breathing sandbox world with the most gripping multiplayer experiences yet, including 16-player PVP and 4-player co-op. The video documentary also shines a light on some of the extraordinary antics and mayhem that players can look forward to, including Renegade Orbs and the PVP mode called Rocket Tag, when they bring their personal brand of justice to Pacific City."
