"From the beginning, we’ve set out to create a truly dynamic, open-world experience in Far Cry 2," said Tony Key, senior vice president of marketing and sales for Ubisoft. "Our team has focused on pulling players into the realistic African landscape to allow them to fully immerse themselves in the game’s riveting conflict. We’re confident that we’ve created not only one of the most remarkable shooters in recent years, but also one of the year’s best games."

Far Cry 2 was developed by Ubisoft Montreal. According to the developer, the game runs on a new tailor-made gaming engine, Far Cry 2 features non-scripted enemy Artificial Intelligence, entirely destructible environments, dynamic fire and storm effects, and multiplayer gameplay. Plus a completely open-world, 50-square-kilometer environment as bonus.

Player take up their arms and enter a war-torn African state, where they will be forced to make deals with corrupt warlords on both sides of the conflict in order to survive and move ever closer to their primary objective – the Jackal. Players must identify and exploit their enemies’ weaknesses, neutralizing their superior numbers and firepower with surprise, subversion, cunning and, of course, brute force.
