One of the best Far Cry games gets a hardcore remaster

One of the best Far Cry games in the series gets a hardcore remaster that breathes extra life into the Ubisoft classic.

When Far Cry 2 was released in 2008, it became a Ubisoft favourite and was tagged with a Metacritic score hovering around 85 across multiple platforms.

While not perfect, it was applauded for introducing realistic mechanics such as the player having to deal with Malaria.

Alongside this, Far Cry 2 also featured a dynamic day/night cycle, weapon degradation and more.

Far Cry 2 is considered the most challenging entry

Compared to other games in the Far Cry series, Far Cry 2 is considered to be the most brutal of entries.

However, a realistic hardcore remake mod has made Far Cry 2 even more brutal than before. If you can believe it.

As reported by PCGamesN, the Far Cry 2: Realism and Redux mod brings a whole host of improvements as well as enhancements to gameplay.

The mod introduces new difficulty modes, new playable characters, and improved AI for enemies and companions.

Furthermore, graphics and textures have been improved. Bullet holes will appear on objects such as cars while weapons have also been rebalanced.

The mod even brings in new guns and vehicles and also fixes the issue of NPCs respawning at roadblocks every five minutes after you’ve killed them.

Where can I download the FC2 mod?

If you want to check out the Far Cry 2 mod, you can download it now via ModDB.

However, as is often the case, the mod is only available for PC and not consoles.
