Crysis 2 $150 Nano Edition Detailed in Video

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

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.

    If I was a kid again, that would be awesome. It still is awesome I just wouldn't wear one now (33).

    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.
