The wait for the hotly anticipated “Crackdown 2” public demo ends now. Starting today, Microsoft and developer Ruffian Games are giving fans around the world an early chance to bring their personal brand of justice to this summer’s most explosive action title by downloading the public demo on Xbox LIVE before “Crackdown 2” launches early next month.
Featuring the high-flying action and entertainment that are hallmarks of the “Crackdown” franchise, the demo introduces players to some of the core tenets in “Crackdown 2,” including the single player campaign, 4-player co-op with friends and an inventive sandbox style that lets you play how you want, when you want. You’ll get a taste of power thanks to the demo’s accelerated leveling and if you’re a fan of Achievements, the ones you earn in the “Crackdown 2” demo will be counted and deferred when you purchase and play the retail game.
Fans around the world can pre-order “Crackdown 2” today at participating retailers to receive exclusive, in-game bonus armour in four new shades: Gold, Gun Metal, Black and Green.
“Crackdown 2” continues the award-winning gameplay of its predecessor with new enemies that stand in the way of the Agency’s goal to bring Pacific City back under control. “Crackdown 2” is developed by Ruffian Games and will be available on July 6th 2010.
