Crackdown 2 Will Get Pre-Release Demo

Crackdown 2’s producer, James Cope, has revealed that the Ruffian Games-developed sequel to Crackdown will be getting a demo before the game is released. There is still no word on when that release is but we do know that it is coming sooner rather than later.

You can definitely expect a demo to hit Live before the game is out but I can’t say when that will be… yet. The Crackdown demo was fantastic and we want to carry on in that form.

He confirmed the demo during an interview with IGN but he also revealed that the game will feature helicopters quite extensively. As well as these armed flying machines you will also come across tank-like vehicles which you can use to cause “extensive collateral damage” with a co-op friend or two.

Taking over the reins from Realtime Worlds, Ruffian have also changed the mission structure of the game to make it more of an in-depth experience (supposedly) rather than the linear, repetitive structure of the original. Cope didn’t want to give too much away but he says that missions in Crackdown 2 will require a more tactical train of thought.  The same train of thought will also come in handy when it comes to collecting some of the games newest Orbs.
