Crysis 2 $150 Nano Edition Detailed in Video

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 54 comments

We saw glimpses of a Crysis 2 special edition earlier on, and now it's official.

UPDATE: There's a teaser video out now promoting the Limited and Nano Editions. Check it out below:

Crysis 2 Limited Edition

Electronic Arts and Crytek have announced two special editions for Crysis 2 – the Crysis 2 Limited Edition and the Crysis 2 Nano Edition. Both editions feature premium packaging and special unlocks in the Crysis 2 multiplayer game. The Crysis 2 Limited Edition will be available for no additional cost, while supplies last, and features four must-have in-game unlocks for the ultimate multiplayer experience.

- 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 Crysis 2 Nano Edition is designed for the ultimate Crysis fan and will include the Limited Edition housed in a steel case plus 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. Not available in stores, the Nano Edition is available in "extremely limited quantities" via pre-order only for $149.99 / £119.99 / €129.99. Crytek hasn't announced where you can pre-order online yet, but we're guessing it'll be through the EA Store.

EA and Crytek also announced a closed multiplayer beta for Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system starting this fall.

    That is not a SCAR...

    Backpack looks cool, but I don't think any of this is worth $150. Maybe if it was StarCraft stuff :)  but Crysis is not a memorable enough franchise yet to be spending that kind of dough on IMO.

    Yep. Looks more like an H&K G36.

    I think I'd feel better unlocking the stuff myself, unless that statue is made of expensive resin.

    I won't have enough money anyway, so there is no point for me.

    Not even if it was made from solid diamond, platinum plated and personally signed by Leonardo Da Vinci in radioactive gold dust.

    Since they had to pay for the design rights, they just made up their own weapon. This weapon doesnt really exist in reality but has the features of a SCAR.

    This reads too much like a press release. "EA and Crytek also announced a closed multiplayer beta for Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system starting this fall." Xbox 360(R) videogame and entertainment systems? Really?

    Real people call it an Xbox. Professional people call it an Xbox 360. What an oddly super-formal choice of words.

    Even though it wasn't noted...I would bet that none of these editions will be available for the PC *maybe the Limited*...leaving us shafted and still paying $60 for the game.

    The real question would be can it hold the laptop that will play the game.

    You guys are vaguely remembering this:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/crysis-2-crysis-special-edition-nanosuit,10851.html

    The news wasn't official back then. This update is fresh from EA at GamesCom. Also, at the time, the information based on the leak had the price at $200. now the official announcement puts it at $150.
