Far Cry 2
Ubisoft Announce Far Cry 2 DLC
Written By
View author's profile

Ubisoft seem to be on a bit of a roll today, finishing the week in style. First the news of the Prince of Persia Altair DLC, then Prince of Persia going gold (not worthy of a post though in my opinion) and now they have detailed their latest Far Cry 2 downloadable content; named, the Fortune Pack.

No concrete details yet other than what the pack consists of (below), but we are assured that it will be available before the end of November. When we know a price, we'll let you know.

The Fortune’s Pack DLC for Far Cry 2 includes:

Single-Player Mode
Three brand-new weapons
- Silenced shotgun
- Sawed-off shotgun
- Crossbow

Two new vehicles
- Unimog
- Quad

Multiplayer Mode
- Four new exciting maps
1. Cheap Labor
2. Last Resort
3. Lake Smear
4. Fort Fury
- New single-player weapons and vehicles also available in multiplayer

In addition to all the details and what not; Ubisoft also released a load of accompanying screens (13 in fact, so enjoy them as well). Check out them in the Far Cry 2 gallery here.

Quad looks good, and should be a decent reason for me to get back to this game after GOW2.

@2

Agree completely. A shotgun cant be silenced, thats just stupid and defeats the object of a shotgun. The object being shock and awe ;)

Silenced shotgun eh? I hope it makes the same sound effect as the shotgun that Javier Bardem's character, Anton Chigurh, used in the 2007 film No Country for Old Men. There is something about that shotgun sound that's just odd but very interesting.

Wouldn't a suppressor severely weaken a shotgun? Just the way buck works. Not that crossbows aren't awesome, but how can it compete with rocket launchers and sniper rifles?
idk if this is worth paying more than a few bucks for, because the multiplayer's greatest thing is the map editor.

the game sold very poorly
partly because gow2 and cod5 came out then.

i loved fc1 but fc2
had very few mp maps included
enemies and mates look very similar and are hard to see in the environment - rralistic maybe but not fun
diamond system sux
slow movement
laggy on mp

overall disapointing

extra maps so soon is a sign of desperation to try and renew interest in a dwindling title.

none of my friends list play it and 20 of us were fc1 regulars.

Maybe instead of releasing DLC(Why maps, we sit here and make them all day?) they should fix a few of the bugs/glitches they have with singleplayer and multiplayer, and possibly make a better lobby system...but I take it that won't be happening so w/e. Getting rid of this game soon anyways.

Wow... pulling a page out of EA's book here. Don't fix the problems, instead release DLC and charge us for it while pretending there's no problems. I stopped playing this game a week after I got it due to all the problems, guess I wont be picking it up again any time soon.

I thought the only thing a silencer did if placed on a Shotgun was extending the weapon's range...?

Whatever, doesn't matter...

Hopefully it won't take 33 point-blank shotgun blasts to the face to kill somebody when this releases.

The Fortune’s Pack DLC for Far Cry 2 will be available for download from Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 800 Microsoft Points and from PlayStation®Network for $9.99.

From: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/1521068375/m/1811003707

800points ($10). I think not Ubi... Half the contents should've shipped with the game, the other half are worth 400points ($5). Fix the problems first. Add a lobby system. Take the player control away in Ranked games so the host isn't kicking everyone so they win ever match, cut the price in half, then I'll buy it.

In No Country For Old Men, Anton didn't have a silenced Shotgun. He had what is called a captive bolt pistol, which is used to stun cattle. Not even close to being the same thing.

"In No Country For Old Men, Anton didn't have a silenced Shotgun. He had what is called a captive bolt pistol, which is used to stun cattle. Not even close to being the same thing."

He had both. He used the bolt gun to open locks. The shotgun was what he used except for times when he wanted to kill someone in the open without raising suspicion. Any other time he was using a shotgun. The bolt gun isn't to stun cattle, it's to shoot them in the brain and kill them. Essentially created to eliminate the need to keep buying bullets.

I just got this game for $30 new on eBay! It's a good game, a definite improvement over the first one in many ways! I wonder when they'll toss some new achievements our way or if we'll have to wait a bit for those.

To anyone who doesn't like the game:

Why are you wasting your time dissing it. Go do something more constructive. It's arrogant to think your opinions will be listened to.

I wish they would release co-op eventually, the place is so big one guy could be a distraction while the other gets to the objective. Either way i'm getting this eventually seeing as I want to beat the game again but in french...

Christmas for me but a silenced shotgun..? What the point? doesn't the AI make it extremely hard to sneak up on them and skill without alerting attention? At least thats what I read in GI. So maybe not idk

DLC huh? How about fixing the issue with the game before adding to it?

First on the fix list, weapon damage. As it stands now, I can't enjoy this mess. A quarter of a clip to kill a man in a tank top or nothing at all, to make it more of an insult, is so mind-boggling bad that I can't express my annoyance enough.

Oh and when they finally acknowledge that more fixes are needed, add the annoyingly fake check point re-spawns issue. Anyhow until then, this game is a burden to play and a paper weight in my collection.

How about Instead of Ubisoft working to make more money on DLC how about they go back to Far Cry 2 and fix all the game saving glitches and bugs that oh may discourage people from picking up the game in the first place... Just an idea Ubisoft how about looking out for your product for a change maybe you would sell more copies this way before all the gamers in here send u on a feedback loop
