[edit] Background

On a remote tropical paradise in the middle of the Pacific in the year 2020, you take on the role of an unsuspecting hero. Beauty abound, danger lurks harbored in any corner, where a madman plays God. You are drawn into his sinister plot as he is preparing to end the human race with genetically engineered creatures.

[edit] Gameplay

As Jack, you'll have to outwit hordes of cunning mercenaries through all manner of tactics. Make long-range assaults, set traps, commandeer vehicles - even develop new skills and abilities to outlast the island's evils and escape with your life.

[edit] Features

  • Feel the Far Cry Engine - The meticulously designed next generation CryEngine pushes the threshold of action gaming with proprietary PolyBump mapping, advanced environments physics, destructible terrain, dynamic lighting, motion captured animation and total surround sound.
  • Cunning and complex A.I. Tactics - Autonomous A.I. make realistic decisions based on observations of the current state of the world. These highly-trained mercenaries are designed to utilize environmental features, attack in groups, divide & conquer, respond to player actions, and call in reinforcements from air, land or sea.
  • Astonishingly tension-filled non-linear experience - Unique game design encourages a combination of pure reflex shooting as well as intelligent stealth. Draw out your enemies or perform a full-on assault. It's up to you to use the vast environment to your own advantage.
  • Heart-Pounding atmosphere - Unique proprietary physics and lighting, adaptive audio, weather effects, and day/night cycles provide a tropical setting so real you'll never want to leave.
  • What you see is what you play - Thanks to the Sand box editor, you can easily create and edit your own terrain, foliage, textures, lighting effects, vehicles, missions etc… Place enemies, build maps, and construct the world in which you want to play.
