In 2019, we informed you about Far Cry 2 Redux. And today, modder ‘PuppyUnicorn’ released a reworked version of it. This is a mod for those that want to replay this classic FC game, and we highly recommend downloading it.
Far Cry 2: Modernized is essentially a game overhaul; prioritizing graphical fidelity, realism, and consistency. Far Cry 2 Modernized brings bug fixes, extra content, a custom HDR and sharpness-based ReShade, upscaled and improved textures.
As said, this mod uses Far Cry 2 Redux as a base. Therefore, all the improvements that this mod features are already included. The modder has also managed to further increase shadows, LOD, terrain, and render distance.
Moreover, this mod includes some other FC2 mods too. For instance, it includes the AI upscaled textures from Boggalog’s ‘Enhanced Texture Pack‘ mod, his ‘Actual Syrette Icon‘ mod, and the colorful weapon icons from his ‘Detailed and Colourful Weapon Icons‘ mod. Additionally, it includes Daniel Pistelli’s old 4GB executable patcher. This allows ‘FarCry2.exe’ to use 4GB of memory instead of only 2GB (because it’s a 32-bit executable).
You can download the mod from here. Below you can also find some screenshots from it.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
