Ruffian Games is going big with their return to Pacific City. The game will be bigger with more stuff to do and…lots taller. I know that one of my favorite past times in Crackdown was climbing buildings and generally jumping around like a superhero.
Now, we will have even higher buildings to climb. The lead designer of Crackdown 2, Steve Ianetta, said that in Crackdown the biggest altitude change from lowest point to highest was under 400 meters. Now, in Crackdown 2, there will be altitude changes of over 1000 meters. That is over a 1/2 mile in altitude change. I hope you can Wile E. Coyote it off the top of buildings and leave craters in the ground. That shit would be fantastic…or am I the only one who thinks that?
Regardless, Microsoft said that we should prepare for Crackdown 2 to come out in the first half of this year. Get ready to get higher than ever before!
