Billy Thompson of Ruffian has revealed they've made some pretty big changes to the Crackdown formula, and it's still set in Pacific City but "further on in the timeline."
"From an environmental point of view, you probably would look at it as being an entirely new map," Creative Director Thompson told .
"It’s still Pacific City but further on in the timeline. We’ve altered a great deal, and think people who enjoyed the first game are going to be really pleased when they enter this one. And we’ve made sure the gameplay’s altered significantly."
"...the original environment in Crackdown is one of the key characters. We think bringing that character back and making it bigger and better is the way to go," he added.
So we get an older Pacific City with new tricks? Sounds teasingly awesome already.
