To end this first day of Ubidays, here's the Far Cry 2 gameplay presentation as we discovered it during the opening conference a few hours ago.
Update: Added a tech demo showing what the engine can do.
Update2: Added a short clip of Xbox 360 gameplay from the showfloor.

You know which version of the game this is? It looks like it's being controlled with a gamepad, but it doesn't have the 360 buttons appearing on usable item contexts like that gametrailers user video posted in the other FC2 post.

the technology invested in FPS engines and games is amazing, but i wonder if all of it is worth it. i mean the way that map comes up, is that nessecary to the core gameplay of the game.

Hah. Vernon Kay presenting, haven't seen him in a while. Felt like he was a bit out of his element ;).

Game looks great, all stuff we've seen before though. I love the map being a real game object in front of you. Reminds me a bit of Alone in the Darks new system. Not sure which came first.

Fair play Vernon - I know that he is big on gaming, particularly the 360.

Though, I will never forgive him for not accepting my friend request on Xbox live! Damn you and your Bolton accent! :(

As for the game, looks 'tres' pretty. ;)

I love the fact that they've totally eliminated the UI and brought everything to an on-screen real-life representation, like the map feature. Great ideas, looking forward to this game. Instincts was absolutely killer on the Xbox and I can't wait to see what surprises are in store for us while playing. I really hope they keep some sort of the primal powers from Instincts in there, that was such a crazy unique thing the game had.

Instincts was okay, but it was a shell of the original Far Cry on PC (in terms of gameplay mechanics and complexity). Far Cry 2, as per its development philosophy, definitely looks to bring back the glory of the first game, and not in a dumbed-down, consolized or simplified format.

Actually if anything, Far Cry 2 looks to expand greatly on both Crytek's efforts (Far Cry 1 and Crysis). An actual truly open world game with far more gameplay mechanics than shooting and riding vehicles...

Yep.
I'm pretty sure the guy actually says at the end of the video that it's the PC version, but that it's "no different" than the 360 or PS3 versions of the game. I suspect that the only differences will be in image quality, and maybe better texture assets (oh no, I'm gonna get grilled!).. otherwise I'm sure they'll be mostly identical.

Can't wait to see the system requirements. It's quite framey in this video and I can only imagine that they're running on a pretty high end rig.

GriftGFX is correct, it's the PC version.. The guy says in the end 'console versions are the same as you see on PC here right now'..

Game looks very impressive graphically..

I like the idea of an open world FPS and it looks like the tech is there. But it's so far and away from every version of FC I've ever played, I wonder why they even bother calling it that.

What other gameplay mechanics are there other than shooting and riding vehicles?

The main concept of "Far Cry" has always been large, expansive, open levels, set in natural environments with huge draw distances that allow the player total freedom and mobility to use totally different tactics in taking down large groups of mercenaries, however they want to. Seems extremely consistent to the Far Cry name to me.

What's up?
  • Melmoth

    Melmoth while also getting better performance and higher settings. I've tried something like 150-200% supersampling in a flight-sim, and the image quality is quite a bit better, but in 10fps ofc :D (15 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @toelessfoot: Hopefully i'm getting a new PC together this spring, if i don't get a new VR-set then i can still get some ekstra life out of the CV1 by running games with supersampling (15 Hours ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot @Melmoth: They should really sell a controller-less G2, I'd definitely get one. It can be used with Index controllers too. (2 Days ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth An inside-out tracking-solution would make things much simpler. The G2 seems fantastic for sims, but unsure about the controller tracking. (2 Days ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @toelessfoot: The problem i have with the CV1 is having to move the sensors between two rooms when going from a sim setup to roomscale. So much hassle that i rarely use roomscale at all. (2 Days ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @nostradamus: i read about it a while ago. Based on the Doom engine. Looked really well made for a fan-game. (2 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot @Melmoth: Yeah I came from a Rift CV1, kind of wish I hadn't sold it for the good tracking and OLED contrast, not to mention my computer could run more games at its native res. (2 Days ago)
