The first quarter of 2011 promised some really sought after video game sequels for the gamers in us. Killzone 3 has already been released and three more hight sought after sequels are coming this March to your console.
Game Sequels Releasing in March 2011:
The first version of the highly popular FPS Game Crysis was released in 2007 and it thrilled us with one of the best gameplay graphics ever seen. It was one of the most GPU intensive games of its times. I used to play it on my PC back then when I did not have the PS3.
Crysis 2 continues the storyline in New York where an alien invasion has occurred. You play the role of Alcatraz who wears the new enhanced Nanosuit as he fights the aliens.
Just like last time Crysis 2 is set to create new benchmarks in the field of gaming. This time its going to feature true stereoscopic 3D as well. The game will be released by Electronic Arts on PS3, Xbox and PC this March. The game trailer is already available on PSN.
Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed
Another Electronic Arts game, the Need for Speed Shift 2 will succeed the original NFS Shift(announced in December 2008) and the recently released Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.
Racers will see the newly introduced Autolog feature(seen first in NFS Hot Pursuit) in Shift 2 allowing them to share status, pictures and videos and also mod their cars.
This game will be released on March 29, 2011 in US and March 24,2011 in Europe for PS3, Xbox and Windows platforms.
Dragon Age II
Dragon Age II is the upcoming sequel to the Dragon Age series(released in 2009) and is set to be released on March 8, 2011 in North America and March 11, 2011 in Europe. This game was first announced in July 2010 by BioWare.
A special feature of Dragon Age II is that the story will span a decade whereas the story from Dragon Age: Origins ran its course over a period of two years. As the main character moves on year by year, the choices that the player made in past will affect the present and the future.
Let us know which of these video game sequels or other games you are looking forward to this season.
