Far Cry 2010 is a graphics mod for CryTek’s masterpiece FarCry. This project started in April 2010 with the intention of improving graphics in all single-player campaign levels. Naturally we will remain with Far Cry’s established CryEngine. Yet Far Cry 2010 does not only improve textures and applies some other minor changes like it has been seen in so many minor mods since 2004, but it aims to overhaul each and every level.
This mod is being developed by Didjay who has just released a new video for it. This brand new video showcases the in-game waterfall and looks lovely. It’s quite obvious that Far Cry 2010 is pushing CryEngine 1 to its limits, as this scene alone features Waterlillies, animated water shader on rocks, variable water height and visible splashing against rock canyon, as well as mist at base of waterfall.
The first chapter of the mod is already out, whereas the second will be released when it’s done. Enjoy the Waterfall!

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.
