Default Far Cry Goes Gold

Link

March 09, 2004 - Ubisoft announced today that Far Cry, the sassy shooter with a tropical twist, has received gold status, meaning the code is finalized and the title can now enter production for its March 23 ship date.


To celebrate the game's gold status and pending release, Ubisoft is releasing two new single-player demos. The first, known as "Research," was recently made widely available for download. A second new demo, "Boat," will be released March 15.
Developed by Crytek using a brand-new (and visually stunning) engine, Far Cry takes first-person shooter action to a lush tropical island setting. Of course, the game is hardly a bucolic vacation, and well-armed soldiers aren't the only enemies you'll come across. Of course, if you've been following along so far, you've got a pretty good idea of how nice the game looks.
We're gearing up to get you plenty more Far Cry news and views in the next few weeks, including the eventual full review. The PC guys are even gearing up with a strict diet of coconuts and wild boar, just to make sure they get their vitamins. Wouldn't want anything less than the best, would you? Stay tuned.-- David Adam



Sweet!

Gotta admit, Far Cry looks amazing, and runs great if judged by the demo...

That is kind of strange they throw in the Demo disk w/ the game.

Maybe the demo level is not in the game.

They give the disc out when you preorder the game, so you get the demo now and then when the game comes out you get the full game. They don't give you the game and the demo at the same time.

Though I think it would be cool if they made a demo-specific level, that was nice the way they did it in Half-life.

Was that the "day one" type demo? I got one from my Voodoo 2

Yup, Half-life: Day One was the demo I was talking about. It's nice they actually put the time and effort into making a full new level for the demo. That way not only does it not spoil anything about the main game, but gives people who beat the game a reason to play it. It was also kinda cool that the demo for DX:IW was a "remixed" version of an area from the main game, the place was actually a suprise in the full version since it was so different.
