We thought this game fell off the face of the Earth, but Ubisoft suprised us this morning with a batch of screenshots, followed by some relevant highlights.
For those who haven't been keeping notes, Far Cry Instincts is based on the critically acclaimed PC release, Far Cry, released in 2004. Ubisoft's Montreal studio wisely decided to create a brand new engine, rather than offer Xbox gamers a ported experience. No significant gameplay details have been revealed (Ubisoft's keeping that mostl under wraps until E3 where they'll be showcasing a hands-on demo for attendees). However, the publisher promises the game will "take things one step further" by offering improved gameplay scenarios that will challenge players to utilize a variety of strategies. That's PR speak for "we're taking the engine and adding some elements that will be on par with the original."
