No 60FPS For Far Cry 2; There's Just "So Much Going On"
As you all know, this month is massive, and one of the driving reasons behind that massiveness is Ubisoft's Far Cry 2. It's the long-anticipated sequel to one of the best shooters of the last generation, but while we do expect great things, the news isn't 100% positive.
According to the Videogamign247 blog, producer Richard Gaetan has confirmed that not only can the game only manage 720p resolution, but it also won't be able to hit 60 frames per second. The latter is a goal many FPS developers try to hit, but Gaetan simply says there's far too much going on to make this possible. Here's what he had to say on the subject-
"We wish it would be 60 frames a second, but no. With the world so big even in multiplayer the biggest maps are pretty huge the dynamic grass that can catch on fire, the trees that can be destroyed, the vehicles in there as well, there's so much going on that no, we're not at 60 frames per second."
Well, we can live with that. Besides, most everyone who has seen early footage of Far Cry 2 in action has been more than satisfied with the impressive visuals. Sometimes, people get a little too caught up in the technical side of things, so let's not shoot down this potentially fantastic FPS just 'cuz it doesn't run at 60fps. Hell, lots of great action games in the past - in this generation, even - didn't run at that speed.
