Peacekeepers beware! The five-part animated mini-series for “Crackdown 2” rages on today with the third episode, titled “The Virus: What We Know.” Peeling back the layers to uncover the mystery surrounding the Freak virus, this episode reveals the Agency’s Public Service Announcement that’s vital to surviving a Freak attack and infection. Before you embark on your tour of duty as an Agent in “Crackdown 2” when the title releases exclusively for Xbox 360 on July 9, 2010 in Europe, be sure to check out what you’re up against.
Ravaging civilians through bite, burn or scratch, the virus acts incredibly fast to attack, divide and mutate human tissues, creating Freaks of all shapes and sizes…and odours. To keep from falling victim to the Freaks, civilians better listen carefully or suffer the consequences:
* The best weapon against infection: Vigilance. See a Freak or infection, report it!
* The telltale signs of infection: Unresponsiveness, redness around the eyes, pronounced veins and a distinctive odour.
* To ward off a Freak: Scream, confuse it, use big gestures or play dead.
* The Freaks’ vulnerability: Light – but the sun won’t always be on your side.
The five-part animated mini-series will conclude on June 21, 2010. Catch each week’s exclusive debut at YouTube.com/machinima:
