I recently had the opportunity to duck over to the USA and preview the anticipated Far Cry, currently being developed by German studio Crytek. The press event consisted of some hands-on time, which gave me an opportunity to check out both the single player and multiplayer facets of the game. I also got the chance to chat to some of the developers, which was great - they're all extremely into their game and were really fun to talk to.

Check out the first part of the two-part preview now on GameArena, along with some new screenshots that were released for the event. The second part of the preview (looking at multiplayer, the editor and more) will be up later in the week.

Update: Part 2 is now up, featuring information about vehicles, multiplayer, and more.

Looks awesome, I'm thoroughly impressed with what they seem to be doing with the rest of the game besides just having pretty graphics.

Is this the game we got a look at on the big screen during the WCG-AU finals?
Posted 12:38pm 26/11/03
Not to be confused with Term's Big Cry :P
Posted 03:41pm 26/11/03
Yup, this is the game that was demoed on the big screen at WCG-AU.

And believe me, it plays as good as it looks - the only thing missing is Catorina Rowntree in a skimpy bikini!! ;)

It's looking even nicer than it did before.

I can forsee a sort of hobbyist modding industry coming up soon for plants and scenery. Considering how complex the games are getting I reckon you won't just have modders who do levels or player models, you'll have people who do a nice palm tree, or the dude who modelled the orchids and staghorns for the Daintree Rainforest level...

That demo certainly was awesome.

At first i thought 'just another crud non iD engine based FPS' and then they took the action outside. WOW!

Storm, maybe there's a job going for modelling her then :) someone else can do the bikini.
Posted 01:22pm 27/11/03

i'll model her trix ;)

I like how some of the plants have dead leaves on them. A nice touch. Really hanging for this game now and also Battlefield Vietnam. Anything big and multiplay that has huge maps and lots of vehicles will get my attention, unless it's like Tribes 2 then it can go to hell.

rev, ut2004?

i dunno how that one's gonna turn out
