Far Cry is a 2004 first-person shooter game developed by Crytek and published by Ubisoft. It is the first installment in the Far Cry series, followed by 2008’s Far Cry 2. Set on a mysterious tropical archipelago, Far Cry follows Jack Carver, a former American special forces operative, as he searches for a journalist who went missing shortly after their boat was destroyed by mercenaries. As Jack explores the island, he begins to discover the horrific genetic experiments being conducted on the local wildlife and must confront the mad scientist behind them. The game is played from a first-person view and allows the player to use various weapons and tools as well as take advantage of their environments to eliminate enemies. The game was released for Microsoft Windows in March 2004 and for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 a decade later.
Far Cry was praised for its visuals, gameplay, and the level of freedom given to players. The game was also a commercial success, selling over 730,000 units within four months of release and over 2.5 million units in its lifetime. The success of Far Cry led to several stand-alone sequels developed by Ubisoft, as well as remakes: Far Cry Instincts and Far Cry Instincts: Predator. A loose film adaptation was released in 2008.
The game’s story follows an ex-U.S. Army Special Forces soldier stranded on a mysterious archipelago. He is searching for a journalist he was escorting after she went missing when their boat was destroyed by mercenaries. The game includes thematic elements relating to the dangers of weaponizing genetic engineering and the genocide of local islanders as can be seen by the deformed creatures created by a mad scientist named Krieger.
The terrain in Far Cry varies greatly. Set on a South Pacific archipelago, the landscape includes beaches, dense rain forests, towering canyons, mines, swamps, and even volcanic forests. Many of the interiors range from simple beach huts and army camps to elaborate complexes, an underground temple, and ultra-modern research labs. Several of these mazes use the remains of Japanese WWII-era fortifications and bunkers.
