Ubi announced today that Far Cry 2
has gone gold and will be hitting stores next week. The game has a lot to live up to as the original Far Cry
was one of the best FPS
games of 2004. I'm interested to see how the new direction that game is taking as you're battling normal human beings instead of half human Trigens. Here's the last trailer from the game to whet your appetite.
SAN FRANCISCO – October 14, 2008 – Today, Ubisoft announced that Far Cry®2 has gone gold for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and PC. The game will ship October 21, 2008 and has an ESRB of "M” for Mature.
About Far Cry 2
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Far Cry 2 will be the newest innovation from Ubisoft in the world of next-gen first-person shooters. More than just a visual and technological achievement, Far Cry 2 immerses players in an entirely new kind of gaming experience. Running on a tailor-made new gaming engine, Far Cry 2 features non-scripted enemy Artificial Intelligence, entirely destructible environments, dynamic fire and storm effects, and multiplayer gameplay, all in a completely open world 50km2 environment. Players will find themselves immersed in a war-torn, African state, where they will be forced to make deals with corrupt warlords on both sides of the conflict in order to survive and move ever-closer to their primary objective – the Jackal. Players must identify and exploit their enemies' weaknesses, neutralizing their superior numbers and firepower with surprise, subversion, cunning, and of course brute force.
Far Cry 2 will be available at the manufacturer's suggested retail price of $59.99 for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 system and at $49.99 for the PC.
