Players looking forward to shooting their way through Far Cry 2's
50-square kilometers of African wilderness best set aside the better
part of a few weeks (at least!) to do so. Varying reports suggest it
could take as long as 100 hours (for compass-be-damned wanderers, no
doubt) to complete the game's single player campaign alone.
Ubisoft Montreal creative workhorse Clint Hocking offered us an apparently inadequate estimate when he guessed that the campaign could be completed in as little as 25 hours, before adding that to see it all "you're looking at a 100-hour play experience." And, speaking to CVG,
producer Louis-Pierre Pharand landed his estimate somewhere in the
middle, suggesting 50 hours of play time to completion. Regardless of
the varying possibilities, it's reasonable to expect that the shooter's
single player experience will be long, evidence that not all devs are drinking from the same fountain as Phil Harrison.
On top of the campaign, Eurogamer
reports that the sequel to 2004's tropical island shooter will support
up to 16 players in online multiplayer, which will focus on team-based gameplay rather than traditional deathmatch
modes. Also missing from Far Cry 2 will be online co-op,
though according to Pharand multiplayer games will support multiple
classes, as well as persistent awards and experience, giving us plenty
to look forward to when Far Cry 2 debuts this holiday season for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
