Tropical paradise seethes with hidden evil in Far Cry, a cunningly detailed action shooter that pushes the boundaries of combat to shocking new levels.
Venture through an utterly realistic tropical island, with no limits placed on where you can go or how far you can see. Become embroiled in a thriller movie-style storyline, controlling one man in a bid to escape from the island with his life. Encounter and defeat highly intelligent enemies in stunning tropical locations, as you jump into a game world modeled to an unparalled level of detail - with next generation "physics-on-demand" and a view distance of over half a mile.
Heart-pounding tropical island isolation: Experience unprecedented drama and realism with incredible lighting and shadows, adaptive audio, and weather effects that impact gameplay.
Next-generation engine: A new standard of action gaming with advanced environment and character physics, destructible terrain, dynamic lighting, motion-captured animation and total surround sound.
Unparalled long range gunplay: Battle to the ends of the earth with Far Cry's utterly unique, 800-meter scalable view system. Lock into enemies from a distance with motion-sensing binoculars. Then choose your style of attack - from long range sniping to ballistic close-quarter firefights - and everything in between.
Cunning and complex artificial intelligence: Gameplay never becomes repetitive with units including snipers, stalkers, scouts, and grenadiers engaging you from all angles, distances and terrains in coordinated strikes. Commanders will even call for reinforcements by land, sea or air.
Diverse combat action: Master a dynamic slate of combat skills - close-quarters combat, long-rnage shooting, search and destroy tactics, stealth operations, and combat driving skills through indoor and outdoor environments.
