  • Far Cry

    Anyone heard of this/ know anything interesting?

    Although it is a Ubi game, it actually looks kind of promising...

    Welcome to destination Far Cry

    You are Jack Carver running your own boat charter business in beautiful Micronesia. With a past best left behind you, you'll be focusing on your present assignment: escorting an ambitious journalist named Valerie Cortez to the Island of Cabatu. It seems like a piece of cake, but you'll soon learn: paradise can be hell.

    Experience a new style of FPS gameplay featuring massive outdoors environments and unprecedented long range gameplay.

    Feel the Far Cry Engine
    The meticulously designed next generation CryEngine pushes the threshold of action gaming with proprietary PolyBump™ mapping, advanced environments physics, destructible terrain, dynamic lighting, motion captured animation and total surround sound.

    Cunning and complex A.I. Tactics
    Autonomous A.I. make realistic decisions based on observations of the current state of the world. These highly-trained mercenaries are designed to utilize environmental features, attack in groups, divide & conquer, respond to player actions, and call in reinforcements from air, land or sea.

    Astonishingly tension-filled non-linear experience
    Unique game design encourages a combination of pure reflex shooting as well as intelligent stealth. Draw out your enemies or perform a full-on assault. It's up to you to use the vast environment to your own advantage.

    Heart-Pounding atmosphere
    Unique proprietary physics and lighting, adaptive audio, weather effects, and day/night cycles provide a tropical setting so real you'll never want to leave.

    What you see is what you play
    Thanks to the Sand box editor, you can easily create and edit your own terrain, foliage, textures, lighting effects, vehicles, missions etc… Place enemies, build maps, and construct the world in which you want to play.

          The engine and the mod development tools look INCREDIBLE.

                But I don't understand why this isn't making headlines... Why's there no hype for this game?

                    Maybe they don't want to hype it up like some of their other games only to find that the players think it's garbage. Good looking trailers though. The editor looks really easy to use and that's a plus in my books.

                    - It's who you game with.

                      I love the WYSIWG qualities of the editor.... copy, paste, modify terrain.. instant test.. nah, needs more of this... edit, paste, move, test....

                      What i did notice was lack of reticules on the rifles... I want to check this out in-game... and the MP possibilities look to be very TG friendly ;)

                        According to at least one fan site, the single player demo for Far Cry will be released January 21, 2004. I'll definitely be checking this one out!

                        Big rumours about unofficial copies of multiplier beta in circulation!

                            One of the programmer's responsible for the engine was talking about this a long, long time ago on a forum I frequent. At least I think it was this engine. Seems like this blows everything else out of the water. That was a long time ago, though, so games might be catching up.

                            This looks interesting. They say it's a combination of a shooter and stealth, but we'll see how it works out.

                            Oh, and it looks like they're putting a lot of effort into end-user modding capability. That's good.

                              This game looks awsome! The engine is sweet and the Miision editor looks to be very user friendly with buitin terrain editing! I pumped for this one. Now it's a matter of which will be better soldner or farcry so far from what've seen farcry has my interest.

                              they also as of jan 20th posted a news article that they are compiling a clan directory. passing it onto apo incase he's interested in having TG listed on the directory.
