Crackdown 2 Has Helicopters, Zombie Monsters

That Crackdown 2-themed issue of Game Informer we told you about yesterday is already finding its way into people's hands, meaning we're now armed with the knowledge that Pacific City ain't what it used to be.

While the basic layout of the city remains the same as that of the first game, things this time are a little different. There's still a crime war going on, but you'll notice that some buildings have changed, and others are gone completely, destroyed in battle.

As for characters and enemies, in addition to the cops and criminal factions there's also a mutating virus ravaging the city, meaning you now have to shoot at criminals and zombies.

The article also reveals some new vehicles, including helicopters, more variety in your melee attacks, and the fact you can now buy supplies in the field or have them flown in by the cops.

    I didnt like Crackdown.

      I did

        the most moderate exchange of words on comment ever no f bombs no screw you it was awesome and your stupid which is the norm on ever game related comment page. i liked to keep the peace

      BEST exchange in arguments ever

    I (mostly) loved Crackdown. The sense of freedom and power was amazing, only shown up by Prototype.

      First thing I thought when I started playing Prototype was "Shit...this reminds me so much of Crackdown"

      Then when I went back to play Crackdown and couldnt run up and down walls and glide halfway across the city it felt weird.

      Even so, totally looking forward to this...but I think that Zombies are going to be the new WWII if devs arent careful.

    I thought Crackdown was great. This sounds like it's going to be a little like prototype but with different abilities for the main character.

    Crackdown was great but needed more depth. It seems they're going the Prototype route to get that for Crackdown 2 >_>

    funny you mention prototype, because that is exactly what crackdown two sounds like now. mutating virus' and zombies? please
