Far Cry SP Demo

The single-player demo for Far Cry is now available, released a little earlier than originally planned because it was prematurely leaked. The demo is a staggering download, available at 465 MB with the DirectX installer removed on 3D Gamers, Adrenaline Vault, Pixelrage, and Doupe.cz; while the 496 MB version with DX9 included is on 3D Downloads, ActionTrip, AusGamers, Boomtown (registration required), Computer Games Online, FileFront, FilePlanet (registration required), Filerush, FileShack (registration required), Gamer's Hell, Games Fusion, GameSpot DLX (registration required), GameTab, Happy Puppy (registration required), IGN, Loadedinc, and Worthplaying. Word from Ubisoft on this is: "The single-player demo offers an action-packed glimpse into the Far Cry world showcasing all the technically-advanced gameplay and jaw-dropping scenes from the full version of the game. Featuring a huge beach-laden level, the demo proudly showcases Far Cry's critically-acclaimed CryENGINE, huge game environments, deadly A.I., and the longest view-distance ever witnessed in a first-person shooter."

<--Finds it funny how people are bashing Doom III and HL 2 when they haven't played a polished/final demo of either yet they say Far Cry is way better...I don't post much but that statement stood out as being blatantly ignorant and bias.

This game was quite playable with a GF3Ti200 64 MB then I thought it would be. This looks like a sweet game and I'd buy it, maybe after a video card upgrade though. A+

it doesn` t matter if I run this thing on low settings or high. It runs the same. Actually, it runs better on all highest settings. Go figure. In the menus, when I move the mouse, there is a slight chug type pause then the mouse cataches up. Same thing for me ingame. This leads me to suspect there is a memeory leak of some kind.

Now, again, this happens in ALL lowest settings, and all highest settings. All highest runs fastest for me. Figure that out eh? lol All low settings seems to do is remove terrain detail, but this doesn`t improve anything performancewise, just visualswise. And the beta leak ran way better than this.

Is it the added A.I. calcs? Probably.

A.I? I love it. They spot yas, they hear yas, they flank, they hide. They use cover. The death screen effect when ya get capped is priceless. I dunno dick all bout the sp gameplay. but a Vietnam combat mod using this engine`d be sweet. No iron sights for the M16 type weap. ;0(.......

I'm in the beta, too, but haven't had time to even download it. Job searching has taken priority. Anyone work at a good company in Boston? Haha.


My comp doesn't meet the requirements, anyway, the 300Mhz short.

DUDE!....DUDE!

how 'bout emailing me that CD key then

Thanks! 3D Gamers wouldn't exist without my partners in crime John and Kapi.
Even though I have broadband, when a new demo like this comes out, the servers can get bogged down pretty hard, and knocking off that 40 megs of the stupid DriectX installer can help a lot! I wish more people would do this, freakin’ wasting bandwidth and time!
Yes, while I can somewhat understand that publishers release cover-mounted demos with DX, it makes no sense online. I always try to remove it if it happens to be included, and I don't know why other sites don't do it more often either, because the bandwidth savings cut both ways: suppose we deliver 10,000 copies of the demo over the next few weeks, then it saves our download servers 320 GB in traffic.

Yeah, I'm also greatful that the people at 3D Gamers take out the DX9 installer, but it increases the traffic too. Since it's a smaller file, many more people want to download from them. That's why it would be best for other sites to do the same.
That seems to be true, it rarely has been this busy, and it does contribute to the initial slowness of our Torrent as there are way more people downloading than are seeding, unfortunately. It should speed up by this evening though.

On every level I love this game. Sweet. My rig isn't quite up to spec anymore. Time for an upgrade. It's crazy how there is actually so much brush you cant see ahead of you 5 feet at times, and the view distance is amazing. Another cool thing is u can use the binoculars to zoom in and listen in on a conversation. Cool.

Mr Gar, th eMP beta came as a RAR .exe. Seems strange if they switched to .zip for the SP demo, dont know of anyone having problems with it.

waxthirteen, in the MP demo the MP5 sounds fine to me (Audigy).

There is a "near" ironsights aiming mode, but it's not actually through the gun sights, just pulls the gun closer and the view zooms in - except scoped weapons, where the scope view is used).

FWIW I think this game scales pretty well, because I found beta entirely playable, only rarely hits a low of 30fps offline which is fine FPS for SP, at 1024x768@32bit (all ingame settings low, no AA etc) - on a overclocked GF3ti200 with a stock XP2400+ and 768mb of PC2100. Even at everything low, it's still the best looking thing I've seen actually run on that PC.

Have to admit I'm not sure if it was such a good decision to release demo so early, especially since performance is something that they've said theyre looking at. Think it will be one of the "must have" games this year, and probably with easily the best quality:hype ratio.
