No, its the same sceens shown at E3 last year.

However Valve did say for some reason they wanted to release 1 more video before they ship hl2...

and i guess we are waiting for that and the SDK and the benchmark....

Far Cry is the Half-Life of this generation. It's pushing the envelope of first-person shooter design and innovation. To be honest, I wasn't terribly impressed with the tech demo videos that were released some months ago. But playing the finished product is well...dang!

I get frustrated with it at times, but unlike Halo and Ninja Gaiden, Far Cry is actually fun to play. I can barely put it down. To me, that's the hallmark of a truly great game. This is the best game that's come out since the turn of the millennium, and it's going to be a gold standard for quite some time.

I can just see developers "modding" it like HL has been done.

It's all going to depend on Doom 3 and HL2. FC will have a good chance against D3 because all reports I've read indicate said game will be pretty short overall (Far Cry should have lots more gameplay time). Plus if HL2 comes out this year we'll have to see if it's indeed all that and a bag of Gardetto's.

But as of right now, Far Cry should be the front runner for GOTY by a long shot.

I cared, but no one listened!

I had been following FC since almost a year ago.. i just liked the idea of how they planned on presenting it. The overall freedom. Like FPS meets GTA3.
