Owing to the efforts of the third-party modders, the original Far Cry is getting an authorized follow-up. This franchise’ aesthetics, mechanics, plus expansive liberty to practically do and achieve anything may have drawn in more followers and money with Far Cry 3, however, the first title already had a good proportion of admirers and was commercially successful in its own right. Unofficially, a successor to the grandiose 2004 product is on its way.
According to Dark Side of Gaming, Leonj_ is working on a Far Cry 1 to Far Cry 2 translation patch. The game, tentatively dubbed Far Cry Returns, seems to be an ambitious venture. It is expected that Far Cry Returns would contain fresh gameplay, audio, graphics plus motions, everything encased in a unique plot.
What Would Be New?
Additional weaponry as well as skills, including ground and pound would be added to the action. In addition to fresh locales and tasks, Leonj_ promises flashy novel cars, enhanced camouflage, along with an improved UI for the unauthorized successor. As for Far Cry Returns’ conversation interface, the designer believes that it would be comparable to Stalker’s and that it will profit from more recent additions, like the day/night cycle as well as climate elements.

There’s no information on when this ambitious undertaking will be completed. In the meanwhile, check out the clip mentioned to witness some preliminary gameplay from Far Cry Returns. Ubisoft, the firm behind the long-running IP, is said to be on the market if you just happen to have a few billion lying around, which might mean huge revisions for the franchise.
At first, the plot premise of becoming stranded on a beach while searching for Valerie seemed interesting. Even though it became tedious in the midway, I chose to keep going because I had actually progressed so much in the adventure.
The scene when aliens, trigens, or whatever you want to name them, started coming was very interesting to behold. Towards the conclusion, there was plenty happening, and I was able to murder Krieger with five bullets to the skull BAM!!BAM!!BAM!!BAM!!. Doyle’s betrayal towards the conclusion scared me a bit, but I’d expected him to be a decent man.
Maybe this all could change now.
