Ubisoft: Far Cry 3 will look amazing on PC
Posted: 18.06.2011 16:26 by Comments: 10
Ubisoft producer Dan Hay is bragging that while Far Cry 3, which debuted at Ubisoft's pre-E3 press briefing, will look "incredible" on PS3 and "fantastic" on Xbox 360, the PC version will be absolutely amazing, as PC users will be able to "dial it to 11," primarily because it's being lead developed on the platform.

"Far Cry is a franchise born on PC, so we want to make sure with the PC experience you can dial it to 11," he said in an interview with CVG. "But at the same time we've got a ton of experience working on Xbox 360 and PS3, and for us making sure that they're on parity with that stuff is incredibly important. So we want to make sure that if you're playing it on PS3 it looks incredible, and if you're playing on the 360 it's unbelievable, sounds amazing and looks fantastic."

Hay added, "We're looking for the experience of anything that contracts from the great characters that we have, the really cool story, the experience that the player's going to have, the immersion... that we hit it with a hammer."

Hopefully, it'll have the same sort of map editor Far Cry 2 featured, too.

"Far Cry 3 will look amazing on PC" - that goes without saying XD

Actually it does need to be said, as "Far Cry 2" looked anything but amazing on the PC (very muddy brown, and a direct console port). Me being me, I'm not yet convinced. From the trailers I've seen so far I'm seeing "Crysis" flashbacks along with jungles that are more like thinly veiled corridors than open world environments.
As I say, that's me being me. Still have bitter memories from the last game.

Far Cry 2 was not a console port. It was lead developed on the PC.

You mean for the PC.... All games are developed on PCs, but not all are developed for PCs....

"Far Cry 2" was ported from PC to console as you say Jonah (as was "FEAR 2" and many others) but looks and plays like a console port. Developed as it was as a multiplatorm title, the heavy console bias makes it appear a console port (same with "FEAR 2").
So apologies, I should have been more careful with my wording.
It's a console game developed first for PC, just as "Metro 2033" is. My fear with "FC 3" is that like those mentioned it will be a console game yet again, only with flashy graphics.

you both may be right 'herodotus' & 'K3Spice' , So it doesn't bother me too much as long as the developers don't mess up the pc port....

A lot of things need to happen before Far Cry 3 will be a good game.
