NanoBITES captures those small but important morsels of gaming information that otherwise might slip between the cracks.
ITEM! EA has revealed that the music for Crysis 2 was provided by Academy Award winning composer Hans (The Lion King) Zimmer. The latest sci-fi shooter from Crytek is due to arrive on 360, PS3 and PC on Friday 25 March. Hey, that’s next week!
ITEM! We were beginning to suspect that Dino D-Day had suffered the same fate as its prehistoric combatants. The good news is that Digital Ranch Interactive’s bizarre World War II shooter is far from extinct. Look for it on Steam on Friday 8 April.
ITEM! Just months after Activision pulled the plug on its Guitar Hero franchise and Rock Band creator Harmonix was sold by Viacom, Ubisoft has announced Rocksmith, a rhythm game that requires players to own a real guitar.
ITEM! Hi-Rez Studios has revealed that its forthcoming Tribes Universe MMO will be preceded by a related (though slightly less ambitious) project. Look for multiplayer shooter Tribes: Ascend to arrive on XBLA and PC in late 2011.
ITEM! We certainly didn’t see this one coming. Open world superhero sequel Infamous 2 will allow players to create and share their own mission and environments. The PS3 exclusive from Sony and Sucker Punch is expected in June.
