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.

      That is usually where you have to escort an NPC from one area to another while the enemy tries to kill him.

        Or the NPC could of course be a human player.

      A map/game mode in CS where one person spawned as a VIP (with pistol only), and the Ts tried to kill him while the CTs tried to get him TO DA CHOPPAH! Oilrig was one such map, I believe. Iceworld also?
