Crackdown 2 Adds Competitive Multiplayer, Hits In 2010S

The sequel to Microsoft's hit open-world crime-fighting game has some new features.

Microsoft's press release for new games coming up for Xbox 360 included some surprises regarding Ruffian Games' Crackdown 2. The company announced that it will enable both cooperative and competitive gameplay modes and what seems to be a harder edge. The press release states that the game will allow "you and your friends with the complete freedom to explore, destroy and play as you return to restore justice and peace to Pacific City - by any means necessary."

Microsoft released artwork and a trailer for Crackdown 2, but as of yet, no official screenshots.
