Number 1: The Plot

Unlike the first game, you and your genetically enhanced crime-stopping colleagues will now find yourselves in a three-way war against a zombie-like virus and a radical civilian group.

Having suddenly infected the many inhabitants of Pacific City, you must save the survivors from the violent creatures that roam the streets, while disabling a violent civilian-run movement called “The Cell” that has decided to hold your agency responsible for the outbreak.

As a result, you’re tasked with both sabotaging their key structures, and attacking the many underground mutant tunnels.

Number 2: The Agent

Returning to the role of a super-human officer for the city-funded organization known as “The Agency”, you will return to the role of “The Agent.” Unlike before, you will now be given a great deal of freedom to customize your character, as well as the option to choose a preset character configuration.

Number 3: The Setting

In the sequel you’ll return to bust crime rings in Pacific City, however the city will be given a facelift and graphical upgrade. So while you’ll find the same streets and buildings from the first title, there will be various new additions and everything will have a modified aesthetic, in order to balance keeping things fresh and familiar.

Number 4: Power-Ups

Along with the need to collect power orbs in order to fuel your abilities, your skill-sets have been expanded and enhanced. Now, you can gain the agility skill, which allows your agent to jump higher than before, and you can use a special 'dash' maneuver when locked in combat.

Number 5: Enhanced Co-op

In response to popular demand, the franchise will now feature 4-player Co-op.

These include the standard free-for all deathmatch, team Deathmatch, and Rocket Tag. In this frantic mode you must survive while carrying an orb, while everyone on the map relentlessly tries to blow you up.
