Far Cry 2 Confirmed for Fall 2008 Release

A video with Ubisoft Montreal producer LP Pharand posted on Youtube today, revealed the release plan for the next gen shooter Far Cry 2. The game is being developed from Ubisoft Montreal and will be simultaneously launched on PC, PS3 and X360 this fall. Unfortunately other details surrounding the game and its story remain brief. What's sure is that there will be no mutants or what so ever as it was previously reported.Source: Far Cry 2 Blog

I wonder how much it is going to cost me to upgrade to be able to play this? I'm excited about it since Far Cry is one of my favorite games of all time.

Aw I thought it was going to be in the summer.:mad:

You shouldn't need to upgrade anything, maybe your cpu for less bottleneck.

Im guessing its at stock cause my E2200 can barely function with the stock cooler it sucks so bad lol.. I would get a Xigmatek cooler and get it to 3ghz then you should be fine.

Served 5k and counting ...
If everyone remembers how much FarCry 1 pushed PC hardware when it was released, this may turn out to be another PC hardware killer.

Well thats so far away that most of us, I reckon will have pretty much new puters by then. And don't say you wont! So I'm not worried about my rig just yet :^)

I don't think theres alot of new hardware coming out between now and then, so it will have to run decently on the stuff we got now. ddr3 will be cheaper and nahalem will be on the horizon, ati's 4000 series will probably be out as well as some more 9xxxs, but nothing huge till the end of the year probably. I could be wrong though, but I'll bet a decent high end rig now could handle it fine. If you got a gphx card earlier than R670 or G92 you might need to upgrade though......

And knowing crytek, its probably not gonna run at like 60fps or anything except for on the best stuff. As long as I get all the eye candy smoothly around 30fps I'll be happy though.

Thats the 64 millon dollar question i reckon hardware manufacturers will do very well out of it.

Dudes, the DUNIA engine is much better than the one from Crysis, and also scales down much better. So if youre rig can run Crysis at Medium/High Settings, you shouldn't have any problem running Far Cry 2

Far Cry = CryTek
Far Cry 2 = Ubisoft

Oh no, well, at least it'll give me more time to buy a XBOX 360 or something.

Perhaps.

I really hope this is a multi-threaded game. One that uses more than 2.5 threads. Developers have had enough time to write for multi-cored platforms, and yes it is much harder than writing for a single core I know, but still, I think it's time we put these quads to use y'know?!

I'm really looking forward to this, even if I can't play it's one of the games on my list. Once I've got (if I get) my Nehalem set up I'll be laughing.

Hopefully never. :shadedshu Far Cry 2 will blow any game out of the water for the next 2 years, like its predecessor did. Nothing comes close to the visual appeal and realistic experience of this awesome game.
