Crackdown 2 mini-series explains the missing 10 years

What happened after the events of the first Crackdown? The Agency managed to keep the criminals at bay back then, but 10 years later, the gorgeousness that was Pacific City still ended up being nothing but a pile of battered, broken streets and buildings.

Written by Ruffian Games Senior Designer Ed Campbell and animated by seasoned comic artist and illustrator Alex Ronald, now comes that which will hopefully give us some answers, a five-part animated mini-series about the events that lead into Crackdown 2. Why is Pacific City in turmoil? What happened to the Agency? Who is the Cell? Where did the Freaks come from? And who is Catalina Thorne?

While you wait for the game to come out in early July, watch the first episode, named “Home Truths” below.
