Far Cry is set in the future that features exciting new elements and 3D worlds set in both vast detailed outdoor and indoor areas. Far Cry will showcase the latest AI and physics technologies to recreate the most believable character movements, as well as real-time 3D atmospheric sound rendering, weapon bullets and footsteps as if you were there, in the game.

The player takes on the role of Jack Carver who was stranded on a lush tropical island.

He is looking for a female journalist who he was separated from when their boat was attacked by mercenaries.

With the help of a man named Doyle, Jack travels across the various islands, battling mercenaries in search for Val.

Through encounters with the Trigens (genetically altered beasts) and information from Doyle, Jack soon discovers that the island is part of an experiment involving genetic modification.

As the game progresses it becomes clear that the Trigens are becoming too large a problem for the mercenaries to handle, and that the experiments are not limited to just primate mutations, but moved on to mutating mercenaries.

When Jack finally catches up with Val, she is being taken to another area by a helicopter. Jack attempts to stop the helicopter and Val manages to escape.

After making it to shore to shore, Val reveals that she is an undercover CIA agent and is investigating Kriegers operations.

Val then suggests that the two of them split up in order to better investigate the islands.

After further exploration, Jack must again search for and rescue Val. This is made increasingly difficult as more Trigens have escaped, and have begun a revolt against the mercenaries on the island.


The world itself is large island surrounded by water. Water is a major feature of Far Cry.

The vegetation seems to be programmatically defined but its possible to move freely all over the island.

Both the enemies and the player can take advantage of the vegetation.
