Crackdown 2 Toy Box out now

Some of it is free, some not...

Microsoft are launching the Crackdown 2 game add-on Toy Box today, and it comes in two colours, free and premium (560 points). It may be a bit confusing to learn what the differences are between the paid and free content so we thought we'd just copy+paste what it said in the press release:

""Toy Box" features explosive new experiences, gadgets and tools for all "Crackdown 2" owners at no cost:

* Keys to the City: Made notorious in the first "Crackdown" expansion as the ultimate cheat mode, Keys to the City returns to "Crackdown 2" and puts an even bigger set of tools at your disposal, including God Mode, Infinite Ammo, Fly Cam, spawning of weapons, gadgets and more, the ability to freeze the time of day, and pushing all skills to the maximum to become faster, stronger and more lethal.
* Level 6 Reward: Fans who reach Level 6 on all Agent skills will be rewarded with the new Thruster Ability. Thruster Ability is like having jetpacks for your boots, giving Agents built-in vertical propulsion to activate flying with the Wingsuit no matter where you are in the game.
* Vehicle Tag*: Once you're done taking down the Freaks and the Cell, join your friends for a thrilling new multiplayer mode where up to eight Agents can compete in these six arenas: Speed is the Quay, Industrial Action, Maim Street, Skid Row, Beachhead and The Sum of Human Knowledge.

Fans can also purchase additional in-game content to extend their gaming experience for 560 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace:

* Two New Vehicles*: Access two new vehicles: the wall climbing aquatic mini-tank called the Agency ATV, and the Squad Chopper, which allows four players to jump in and man their own weapon, including the proximity mine launcher, precision rocket launcher, twin machine guns and nose machine gun.
* Five New Toys*: Whether you're soaring to greater heights or orchestrating a massive explosion, get creative with the following new toys: The Mass Driver (turreted gravity bending weapon), Portable Launch Pads (allows Agents to create their own launch pad jumps), Stickler Grenade (bouncing grenade that sets off smaller explosive charges as it bounces), Thrusters (allow vertical thrust), and Mags on Characters (allow Mag Grenades to be attached to characters).
* Two Avatar Awards: Deck your Agent in the latest gear. "Toy Box" offers two Avatar Awards to customise your Xbox LIVE Avatar with the Xbox Green Suit (must complete the Rocketeer Achievement) and Green Helmet.
* 10 New Achievements: Pacific City never sleeps and neither do the exploits. Industrious Agents will be rewarded with 10 new Achievements and 250 Gamerscore:

1) Beyond the Infinite
2) Run Get to the Chopper
3) Rocketeer
4) Tac Loc Takedown
5) Burnt Offerings
6) Mile High Club
7) Never Give It Up
8) One Careful Driver
9) Wing a Ding Ding
10) Hung Out To Dry

* Eight Agent Suit Colours: Pick up eight new shades of in-game armour for your Agent:

1) Peacekeeper
2) Terror Firma
3) Agent Orange
4) May Contain Nuts
5) Minti-Sting
6) Mega Agent
7) Haz Mat
8) Dem Apples

*Players who have not purchased the premium "Toy Box" content will only have access to the new vehicles and gadgets during multiplayer games if a friend who has purchased the premium content joins. Downloading "Toy Box" is not required to continue engaging in other multiplayer gameplay modes with those who have downloaded it."

Crackdown 2

REVIEW. Written by Petter Mårtensson

Big city, huge sandbox, super fast cars, zombies, terrorist organizations, and then there's you - armed to the teeth, jumping between buildings and throwing trucks at people.
