Next week, Crytek and Electronic Arts will launch the much hyped Crysis 2. The sequel will land on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as well as the PC, but going multiplatform won't be the game's only distinguishing characteristic.
EA has announced that noted Hollywood and video game composer Hans Zimmer collaborated with Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu in creating the soundtrack for Crysis 2, which is due out next week.
Zimmer's previous composing credits include Hollywood hits Inception and The Dark Knight, as well as Activision's blockbuster first-person shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Zimmer's game work will continue, as the composer has been attached to Activision's upcoming Skylanders Spyro Adventures.
The game's soundtrack can currently be heard inside the Crysis 2 PS3 multiplayer demo and can be listened to in full via iTunes, Amazon, and other music providers beginning March 22.
Crysis 2 sees players fend off an alien threat once again, aided by a nanosuit that grants the user superhuman abilities ranging from speed boosts to active camouflage. While the original Crysis featured lush tropical environments, Crysis 2 takes place in the urban jungle of New York City.
