PC only at this point in time
Speaking as a gamer that has played the first far cry more times then I can count, I am totally excited about hearing that the Far Cry goodness will be carried on! Don't get me wrong, I am still excited about the pending release of Crysis, but the specs needed for running it at a level that will WOW me will still be slightly out of reach for some time, whereas, FarCry2 will be more attainable, just a slight upgrade in RAM...
If you haven't already heard, there is no return of the Trigens, or the mad doctor...and the tropical island was also given the 'heave-ho'..."Far Cry® 2 is the next-generation PC first-person shooter from Ubisoft, discover the real sequel to the award winning PC game. More than just a visual and technological achievement, Far Cry® 2 will make you take part of a brand new gaming experience. Discover one of the most beautiful but also most hostile environments in the world, AFRICA!"
Some more fun facts about this sweet new game:
- Destructible Environs
- There is a day and night system.
- There is a dynamic weather system that adapts to how well you are currently doing. If you're shooting everything in site, and well too, the skies will be clear and sunny, but if you start getting owned, the sky will darken and become overcast.
- Weapons can take damage and begin to malfunction and wear out. It's up to the player to take care of his weapons and keep them in top condition for the journey.
- Running into a tree can cause it to break and fall down, just shake, or the player to crash to the floor, all depending on the size of the tree.
- Advanced and adaptive AI wear color co-ordinates from GAP with +55 heads and infinite skin shading possibilities.
- AI has morale settings, insult their clothing and their moral will suffer... Okay that and the bit above about GAP isn't true, but the moral of the NPCs is a function of what is happening around them, shoot their commander and their moral gets worse, shot the man next to them and it becomes even lower.

- COD2 style health up to Critical wounding, then you have to heal yourself.

- Desert Crash site

- Dogon village

...The rumour mill has also given rise to a bit of news that may not make some of you happy...poor Jack Carver did not make it to this installment in the FC franchise...of coarse, this is only a rumour at this time.
