Far Cry 2

Far Cry 2 is a first-person shooter (FPS) video game that was developed by Canada’s Ubisoft Montreal and was released in the United States on October 21, 2008. Apart from having a Xbox 360 version, Far Cry 2 is available for Microsoft Windows and the Sony Playstation 3.

Far Cry 2 was released as the official sequel to Far Cry even as the developers of the original game did not take part in its development. Far Cry 2 also features a different setting, a new style of gameplay, and a new set of characters. Apart from this, the original game features sci-fi characters that cannot be found in Far Cry 2.

The game can be played in both single player and multiplayer modes. It is set in a war-torn African state where two factions compete with each other for control over the state. These two factions include the United Front for Liberation & Labour and the Alliance for Popular Resistance. The players’ task in this mission-persistent game is to use all means necessary to find and assassinate an arms-dealer who has been known for dealing weapons to both factions.

When in multiplayer mode via LAN or internet, yup to 16 players can join a game of Far Cry 2. There are four multiplayer game modes available. These include Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Diamond, and Uprising.

Far Cry 2 features the Dunia Game Engine which Ubisoft Montreal developed specifically for it. Because of this game engine, the game offers a variety of features including non-scripted enemy AI, real-time night-and-day cycle, dynamic fire propagation and storm effects, and a dynamic music system. It also features real-time storytelling, and systemic auto-healing. In addition, its players can choose from a wide variety of available weapons.
