CryTek are revamping the “Nanosuit Showroom” thing on their website, rightly surmising that the clever battlesuit is the best thing that Crysis has going for it. There’s not much there at the moment, to be honest, but to tie in with this there’s another multiplayer focused trailer (posted below) that talks up the features of the suit in the online game. There’s lots of detail on the specialisations for the suit, which is the game’s take on unlocks, but the sheer range of enhancement modules detailed in this trailer is surprising, and made me raise my eyebrows and say “that’s surprising.” There’s also lots of footage of combat, and I think this is best look at the maps we’ve had so far. So go take a look at the trailer, and listen to the pleased-sounding salesman voice explaining to you why there are so many cupholders in that new nanosuit you just bought into.
