Crysis 2 set in New York City

Bust urban fools with Nanosuit 2.0.

Crytek's forthcoming multiformat sequel to Crysis is reportedly set in New York City, according to the latest US issue of Official PlayStation Magazine.

The mag's editor tweeted the front cover, which talks up the new city setting, under attack by aliens.

EA recently told investors that Crysis 2 would be released before the end of March 2011, and a recent US PC Gamer preview listed the game for "Dec 2010".

You can check out a video of the new Nanosuit on Eurogamer TV, or pop over to our Digital Foundry channel for an exploration of the technical possibilities on console.

EA and Crytek announced last year that the game would be released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
