Crackdown 2 had been confirmed for a June 2010 release as of February, but as has been the norm lately, the game has slipped a couple of weeks. Now it will debut in North America on July 6th with Asia, Australia and New Zealand on July 8 and Europe on July 9.

As a token to appease the masses, a new video documentary was released today to help ease the pain of yet another game getting delayed. Check out the “Fun with Friends” vi-doc, which will be the first of a three-part series showing off the game. It is a real nice high level overview of some of the multiplayer game features and drops a couple hints of new things to expect. After watching the video, I’m ready to pre-order now.

Pacific City needs your help, agents. A new enemy has overrun the city and it’s time to restore law and order by any means necessary when “Crackdown 2” releases this July around the world. Microsoft and Ruffian Games today announced that the exhilarating, open-world action game will hit the streets starting July 6 in North America, July 8 in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and July 9 in Europe.

Developed by Ruffian Games exclusively for Xbox 360, “Crackdown 2” is the sequel to the award-winning 2007 title, “Crackdown.” Offering cutting edge gameplay, “Crackdown 2” will take multiplayer gaming to unprecedented heights, providing you and your friends with complete freedom to explore, destroy, and play your way as you restore justice to Pacific City.

To celebrate the road to launch, Ruffian Games invites fans to step into the world of “Crackdown 2” in the first video documentary, titled “Fun with Friends,” from a three-part series exploring different facets of the game.

“Fun with Friends” features interviews with Ruffian Games Creative Director Billy Thomson, Producer James Cope, Senior Engineer David Hynd and Senior Mission Designer Dean Smith as they discuss what it takes to design a living, breathing sandbox world with the most gripping multiplayer experiences yet, including 16-player PVP and 4-player co-op. The video documentary also shines a light on some of the extraordinary antics and mayhem that players can look forward to, including Renegade Orbs and the PVP mode called Rocket Tag, when they bring their personal brand of justice to Pacific City this July.
