Ubidays: Far Cry 2 trailer

Ubidays: Far Cry 2 trailer

Ubidays isn't supposed to start until tonight (7 PM CET), but it looks like Ubisoft wanted Far Cry 2 to have a head start with this new trailer. It certainly looks impressive.

if it's the same as http://gameinvasion.comcast.net/gameinvasion/show/... then it's running on a xbox 360

It looks cool.. it's not quite as ZOMG CRYSIS KILLER as some people suggest though. I have a very reserved amount of faith in Ubisoft's abilities to craft compelling FPS titles, or shooter/action titles in general. It's good enough looking to warrant some attention though. I'll be keeping my eyes on this one.

I'm not sure about this one. With so many good FPS's out and in the pipeline its going to have to stand out to earn its gamer cred. Personally i'm really looking forward to Aliens: Colonial Marines by Gearbox. Now thats a shooter worth backing http://www2.sega.com/aliens//index.php .

If they make the savannah big enough, so that you can do stroll around without coming across people for a while, I may be interested. Seems like a nice ambiance with animals running around and a glaring sun. I hope those animals are not just in the trailers, cause they do add a lot to the experience I think.

Loved the trailer! Loved the africain soundtrack and the voice acting doesnt look too bad!

Has a lot more subtlety than Crysis. Too many people place emphasis on effects and obvious glitz.

This summer is going to make me the happiest person ever.

Game of the year in my book. No other shooter, or game, comes close.

That's what I'm wondering. Ubisoft ruined Far Cry for consoles, and with no involvement from Crytek on this one i'm not too confident either.

This is certainly looking a lot worse than the initial showings - it still looks good in comparison to other games on the market, but it looks a bit rougher around the edges.

I see there is a link and the end of the video to a fake marketing blog for the game:

The game looks pretty, though the characters shown in this trailer look a bit poor, hopefully that won't be the case when game is released.... Will be interesting to know what beast of a PC you'll need to play this, I don't believe 360 version will look as good as PC, time will tell..

Me too! I worked on Alien Trilogy so I think I'll know a good Aliens FPS when I see it. :D

Its not the crysis engine. Its a engine made by ubisoft, I believe.

Looks sick.

About the game

    Sdarts If it was, that would be great as there would be no need to buy a HDR TV to watch HDR content as any SDR screen would be able to show HDR the same as HDR screens. I wish it was like that though. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Mostly what you can see is a richer color palette due to a wider color gamut and bloom/brightness. Though it's not the same, unfortunately. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts You can see it here in both the "Nano Cell" and "HDR" sections on this LG TV: [url] It's still not the same as watching in person. SDR screens can't show HDR. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, you can see a difference, but only on colors and bloom. It's the same type of thing that TV manufacturers use to describe what HDR is with images. same. (1 Hour ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: That's not a fair comparison. You show an absolute in-game compared to a photo of a TV screen. If I take a picture of my tv... (7 Hours ago)
