"The Far Cry pre-order CD is the perfect distraction to keep fans busy for the final two months before launch," said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing for Ubisoft. "If the one-million-plus download response to the single-player demo is any indication, stores will need to brace themselves for hungry shooter fans looking to snatch up this pre-order while supplies last."
When the single-player demo was launched online earlier this month, websites were deluged with gamers wanting to download the next great action shooter. To date, the demo has racked up more than one million downloads worldwide. The massive 500 MB demo is the centerpiece of the Far Cry pre-order, packed with enough content to keep the most voracious fans happy until the game's launch in March. In the demo, players find Jack storming a beach and making his way up to a massive communications satellite dish set atop a vast island filled with dense jungles full of highly trained mercs. The demo showcases Far Cry's critically acclaimed, proprietary CryENGINE(tm), its huge game environments, deadly A.I., and the longest view-distance ever witnessed in a first-person shooter - all features destined to become benchmarks in the genre. Players will experience an unprecedented level of immersion as they uncover the game's many intricacies and unbelievable attention to detail.
Additionally, the pre-order includes the exclusive Far Cry Trip Planner CD, an interactive compilation of Far Cry screenshots, artwork, trailers, and cool content you can't find anywhere else. The Trip Planner features the official Far Cry trailer, an exclusive, previously unreleased trailer showcasing all of the jaw-dropping, action-packed sequences players will experience within the game.
Additionally, before Far Cry's official launch in March, fans will also have the chance to play a Far Cry multiplayer demo. For the latest information, visit the Far Cry website: www.farcrygame.com.
