Far Cry 2 Hardcore Mode and Patch soon

written by on 06.02.2009 at 18:46 | Comments (1)

We have received an announcement of Ubisoft today where they are talking about a new patch and a new Multiplayer Mode, the "Hardcore"-Mode.

The "Hardcore"-Mode will be available on all platforms, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Because of many community requests of a more realistic game there is the answer. But what is the so called "Hardcore"-Mode?

  • A new damage model will be applied with increased damage for all weapons.
  • All weapons have been rebalanced on normal mode, and on hardcore mode.
  • Enemy names will disappear after the spawning invincibility period is over (A shield is displayed above a player’s head for a few second to show that he is invincible).
  • A new option will allow you to tweak spawning time (but not spawning rate).
  • A new search option will be available in multiplayer to allow you to find games that are playing on hardcore mode.
