First Far Cry 2 Details Revealed

Since its announcement, little has been known about Far Cry 2 but, thanks to the latest issue of edge magazine, we now have some more details to share.

Consciously, Far Cry 2 will depart significantly from both Far Cry and Crysis. Far Cry 2 will emphasize on grimy realism. "Don't expect mutants as some surprise later on", said Far Cry 2 producer Lois-Pierre Pharand.

The game will adopt an unusual leveling system. Instead of starting with an ordinary character and leveling up to super-human skills, Far Cry 2 will have you start the game infected with malaria, just like most of the characters in the lawless African country. As you progress, you'll use a "medicine" to "cure" and -in essence - upgrade yourself.

Ubisoft has developed a new game engine called Dunia (Swahili for "World") to render the game. Dunia will be used in all Ubisoft's next-gen projects and will focus on creating a credible environment, and a high level of immersion. "I want the player to feel the grime under his fingernails, the sweat, smell the gun oil" said Far Cry 2's creative director Clint Hocking. "I wanted to create the guns jamming, the dust - the world isn't this clean, sterile, digital representation of Africa".

The game will also utilize an injury system where the player will sometimes be wounded so badly that he'll have to carry out some impromptu field surgery to remove the bullets and patch the wounds. Left untreated, all wounds are fatal but the game will never have you "seriously" wounded more than once every 30 minutes.

Sound half-cool half-annoying at the same time. While I'm sure everybody is glad there's no mutants this time the injury and surgery thing sounds a little iffy. I got enough of that in MGS3, it took a bit out of the immersion being able to clean and stitch a wound in the middle of a heated boss battle. Maybe it'll occur in real time in Far Cry 2 but then it'd just be a pain in the ass. But I'm liking the sound of the RPGish stuff. Maybe it will fill the void of disappointment left by STALKER.

Sorry guys but the truth is that Far Cry 2 WILL be better than Crysis, and I loved Crysis. The self awareness features in Crysis were very well done but Far Cry 2 is taking it to a whole new level. They have a whole year to finalize it and Crysis to use as a reference, so it's definitely going to have better graphics too.

i think it sounds cool, but they walk a fine line. Games should be fun but not a chore. If they pull it off theres potential for a game engine that brings moments of insanity (a group of enemies and your AR jams) but then you dont want that happenin every 5 minutes.

Actually if you know how to hold a gun and aim right, the accuracy of the ak-47 is very good. It does have a high recoil that is true, but once you get used to it, its accurate..Besides i would rather shoot and hope to hit something, then have jammed gun that wont shoot anything
