Ubisoft has announced that the upcoming patch for Far Cry 2 will introduce a new “hardcore” multiplayer setting to the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the shooter.
"The hardcore mode has been designed as an answer to a community request," wrote Ubisoft community developer Atmon on the game’s official forums. "Some players were seeking and expecting a more realistic experience."
Other changes in the patch include a new damage model with increased damage for all weapons, rebalanced weapons, spawning time being tweaked, and more.
No release date for the patch was given.
The sequel has officially been announced: Far Cry 2 is in development at Ubisoft’s Montreal studio for release in Spring 2008 for PC. Yes, Crytek is no longer dealing with the game, but Crysis which is going to be published by EA.
No other information was revealed, though a teaser website is up, showing various terrains.
