Far Cry 2 Multiplayer Modes Detailed, No Demo

Ubisoft Montreal's upcoming open-world shooter Far Cry 2 (PC, 360, PS3) will have a full slate of multiplayer options, but won't come with a demo before or after the game's release.

"Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Diamond... and Uprising" will be available multiplayer modes, according to producer Louis-Pierre Pharand in an interview with EuroGamer. Capture the Diamond is capture-the-flag reworked to honor the game's African setting, whereas Uprising is "a modified version of a VIP [mode]."

To the chagrin of sample-loving gamers, Pharand added that the game will not have a demo. "No demos will be available," he asserted. "It became too complex to do a demo of an open-world game."

Far Cry 2 adds to an increasing trend of open-world games not coming with demos. The full game, boasting 50 square kilometers of world, will hit North America on October 21 and Europe on October 24.
