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."

Hey waxthirteen, I had some sound issues and resolved them by going into the sound options in control panel and reducing the acceleration down a notch (have got asus mobo with nforce2)

That sorted it out anyway... another option is checking to see if there is a newer driver out for your card

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.

No iron sights aiming mode? Blech.

i'm not terribly impressed with it. i wouldn't say it's a bad game, but i'd place it in the same category as chrome. one thing that really bothers me is the sound. maybe it's just me, so if anyone is having a different experience, let me know. things such as the boats you drive have very low volume effects, the mp5 has no sound at all, the voices have this weird effect that makes the bad guys sound liek robots and enemy weapons sound extremely weak even when they're only about 5 feet away.
also the mouse seems to lag, but i'm not sure if that's due to my less than stellar rig (amd 2400+, 512mb, geforce4 ti 4600).

there's a lot to like in this game, so i hope at least some of the stuff i mentioned will be ironed out before release.

I'm currently getting it from Gamershell at a screaming 9.28kb/s. It'll be done in 16 hours and 20 minutes.

Finally a game that comes from nowhere and is actually (at least I think so) a solid competitor to the 2 leaders - Valve and iD.

Hey Quboid, how can you possibly have an:
AMD Intel Pentium 4 800Mhz 3000MHz @ 3075MHz

Did they merge or something?

Hi. My Nick is XT2004 and I am a Farcry MP-Beta-Tester. I can't say something about the SP Demo, but the MP-Beta-Version is the coolest thing, which I have ever played. I am a member of a battlefield clan, but now our clan will be a multigameing clan, because this game is very good.

Have a nice day and visit our clanpage at www.egk.lanstock.net

Now we just need to convince people to stop using the shitty Zip format or installers based on it. DC would be 100+ MB less if they used Rar.

(Sorry zip’s just one of my pet hates )

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.

Who still doesn't have DX9?

Personally I'm partial to GameTab because they were by far the first to do the game demos/movies bittorrent thing and I've been going there for mine for nearly a year now. Plus the stats are shown. However, the 40MB 3DGamers cut out is really nice, so me thinks I'll jump on that one. Good job Frans!

I just want to say a special Thank you to Frans and 3dgamers (if 3DGamers has anybody else over there besides Frans!)

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!
