Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2 to Get Hardcore Mode

View author's profile

Ubisoft Community Developer Atmon, recently revealed that Ubisoft are currently working on a new hardcore mode for Far Cry 2 that is set to drop with the next scheduled set of patches.

The hardcore mode, according to Atmon, is a reponse to community requests and is set to offer gamers a more realistic experience in the multiplayer arena. The mode will feature the following:

"A new damage model will be applied with increased damage for all weapons.

All weapons have been rebalanced on normal mode, and on hardcore mode.

Enemy names will disappear after the spawning invincibility period is over (A shield is displayed above a player’s head for a few second to show that he is invincible).

A new option will allow you to tweak spawning time (but not spawning rate).

A new search option will be available in multiplayer to allow you to find games that are playing on hardcore mode."

No specific date yet, but as soon as we know, you'll know.

This is good, they need to make even more mp modes. I'm tired of Uprising because my team always sucks...

It's all garbage as long as they don't raise the amount of XP earned. So it remains Uprising for me.

This'll give me an excuse to dig this out again. Perhaps now I can level up the shotgun.

Too little too late. This game has been out for so long now.
Ubi has patched the PC version several times and the PS3 version more than once. No patches have come for the 360 yet.
The lack of support, the obviously rushed multiplayer that a chimp could've designed better.... There's been way too many problems with this game for way too long now. It's time to let Ubi know if they're going to produce games like this and show so little support for them, we aren't going to support them and give them our money.

Sweet. Multiplayer is Fan-Freakin-tastic, unless your team captain doesn't know what they are doing. What they should really add is more DL content but this time for items to be placed in the level generator.
