Far Cry 2 devs considering adding "predatory animals"


Far Cry 2 narrative chap Patrick Redding confirmed to VG247 at Games Convention that predatory animals may be added to the game after it launches.

"We're definitely talking about the types of predatory animals we might include at some point, and we're going to investigate that," he said.

"But I don't want to say too much about it because I don't want to spoil the surprise."

There was not other detail, and it's feasible the addition may come with a sequel as opposed to being added to FC2 with DLC. For the record, you're not going to find crocodiles and lions roaming around in the shooter's depiction of Africa at launch.

"We don't have any predatory animals," we were told. "We made a decision early on that because the AI requirements for doing an open world game were fairly challenging just with the human enemies, we wanted to have animals but we focused mainly on grazing animals, on quadrupeds like goats and livestock."

Far Cry 2's out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 before the end of the year.
