GamesCom 2010: Crysis 2 Special Edition Sets Revealed

Electronic Arts has pleased its shooting audiences with details on the 2 special edition versions of the much touted Crysis 2. The FPS is available for pre-order in two versions: The Special Edition and The Nano Edition. While both versions will receive premium packaging and special multiplayer unlocks, the Nano Edition is for the Crysis fanatic in all of us. Hit the break for more details on these exquisite sets.

The Special Edition will be priced identically to the standard edition while supplies last (similar to EA’s recent Battlefield Bad Company 2) and will include:

  • 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 however will retail for an indulgent $150 and comes chock full of Crysis goodies. Including everything in the Special Edition, it will also include:

  • Deluxe steel casing
  • An 11” / 28 cm statue of the game’s hero “Prophet” on top of a New York taxi cab
  • A High Quality Art book
  • All packaged inside a backpack modeled after the Nanosuit itself

This rarity will not be available in stores and is pre-order only. It is also extremely limited. Few games are as anticipated as Crysis 2 right now. Look for more on these handsome special sets closer to the game’s release in March 2011.
