Far Cry 1 with Cryengine 2: New mod - Update with ToD settings and water
Did you ever wonder what the original Far Cry 1 (dt.) would look like if it was based on the same engine as Crysis which had been released three years later? A mod gives the answer.
Far Cry 1 (dt.), which is based on the Cryengien 1, was released in 2004. Crysis with the Cryengine 2 followed in 2007. An ambitious modding project tries to rebuild the whole first game with better graphics and an enhanced environment. Diverse new models for characters and vehicles are supposed to spice up the Crytek game again.
Now screenshots of the first level in the mod have been released - a remake of the Far Cry tutorial level. The similarities with the original game are obvious although the modder have to rebuild every single asset because of level reasons - even the HUD has to be redone. More info can be found at Crymod.
We have assembled a picture comparison between Far Cry 1 with Cryengine 1 and Cryengine 2 to give a direct impression of the visual difference.
