Some of you may have already heard this, but here it is anyways.
"Crytek has been alerted that an early incomplete, unfinished build of Crysis 2 has appeared on Torrent sites. Crytek and EA are deeply disappointed by the news. We encourage fans to support the game and the development team by waiting and purchasing the final, polished game on March 22. Crysis 2 is still in development and promises to be the ultimate action blockbuster as the series’ signature Nanosuit lets you be the weapon as you defend NYC from an alien invasion. Piracy continues to damage the PC packaged goods market and the PC development community."
I have split feelings about this news, as it stands a good chance of hurting Crytek, but at the same time, I'm happy to see info on performance (much improved over the original). The leaked copy is DX9 only, and you're locked into I believe "high" settings, but it still looks fantastic, and I'm hearing very good things about how well it runs on peoples hardware.
Here's a little vid showing it, don't watch if you hate spoilers:
I'm very curious how the modding will be in this game, as one of the things I loved most about the original Crysis were the amazing mods. Here's one that I particularly enjoyed, just to give you guys an idea:
Anyways, I'd like to hear any thoughts you guys have on this leak, or the game in general. I won't be playing this version at all, as I can wait for release, and don't really want to deal with it in an inferior form. I've heard it's essentially a late alpha, but of course, I can't say from personal experience.
