The sub-header was so cool, I decided to include it!

A Preview from PC Gamer UK has surfaced, and it is definately worth a look! Graham Smith gives us the low-down on what to expect, what not to expect (can you say Jack Carver) what it will be like, and so on...

For instance, the most important part of any popular First Person Shooter, or for any game for that matter, is the story...if the story doesn't grab you, the game will suffer! Here's what is said about the story for Far Cry 2:
The story - the procedurally assembled story, that is - charges you with killing a man who's allegedly responsible for selling arms to both sides of a conflict in a failed state.

Along the way you'll become embroiled in other stories and conflicts, while you either accept missions provided by the game's principal factions, or play both sides against the middle to further your own selfish ends.

The idea is to create a world in which you can plough your own furrow while the story shapes itself to enhance the drama of your actions. "Ultimately," says Pharand, "while several major climaxes will take place for all players, the characters involved in those events, the locations where those events occur and ultimately what they mean, is up to the player."

Louis-Pierre Pharand, Far Cry 2's producer even voiced the reason behind the dramatic change of atmosphere from the first Far Cry...
"Our research with consumers showed that there was more interest in the earlier parts of Far Cry - the highly realistic parts where you were raiding mercenary encampments using planning, infiltration and then explosive action to win the fight, Many people seemed to feel the game suffered a bit with the introduction of the Trigens, and the fantastical story that they brought with them. We agreed."

So...to recap:
  • No Trigens
  • No mad scientist
  • No Jack Carver
  • No complaining! Can't wait for this to hit the shelves!! big grin

    As an added bonus, a fan out there has taken some of the fan art that is floating around cyber-space, and created a video slideshow, Awseome job indeed!


    ...Until sometime really soon, happy gaming!
