Gaming developer Ubisoft premiered a few trailers at their UbiDays conference in Paris and I'll be placing them below. The games included were Far Cry 2, which is branching into a new direction minus previous hero Jack Carver, the upcoming next generation Prince of Persia, the new war games Brother in Arms: Hell's Highway, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. and Tom Clancy's EndWar.
Far Cry 2 creative director Clint Hocking explained why they went into a new direction and took out the supernatural elements with Carver.
"The time for running through dark corridors shooting demons with a plasma rifle [in first-person shooters] is done.... Players want more meaningful experiences that deal with human emotions." And how will Far Cry 2 provide those experiences? "The relationships in Far Cry 2 are the gameplay," Hocking explained. "The relationships are what give meaning to the car chases and the explosions and the guns."
He also made a comment on the greenery expected in this sequel.
"This grass isn't fake grass. These trees aren't fake trees. They're real procedurally-generated trees."
