First Person Shooter Developers Far cry 2 13 years later, they revealed the main secret of the game – the identity of the main villain named Jackal, which shocked all the fans.
The iconic Far Cry shooter series has always featured charismatic villains. The game Far cry 2 fits this franchise trait. At the very beginning, the player is given the task of eliminating the tool merchant named Jackal, and almost immediately after that he encounters him personally. The jackal can kill the protagonist, but leaves him alive. The identity of the villain is not revealed in any of the endings of the shooter, so fans have built many theories on this topic. Far Cry 2 director Clint Hocking decided to reveal the truth. It turned out that the villain all this time was the protagonist of the first part of Far Cry.
Clint Hawking explained to gamers that Jack Carver was initially not the best person, Gamebomb.ru reports. Despite his heroism in Far Cry, all his life he was a cunning fraudster who was engaged in smuggling and other not the most legal ways of earning money. After the events of the first part, he developed his talents even more, so he was able to become one of the most successful arms dealers on the black market. In addition, what he saw and experienced greatly changed him. Jack Carver began to look at the world differently, which is why he caused chaos in Far Cry 2.
Hawking also added that Far Cry 2 was originally conceived as a direct sequel, with events supposed to develop about 10 years after the first part. As a result, they refused to disclose their identity, so there is no direct evidence in the game that the Jackal is in fact Jack Carver. The only clue from fans was the game files, in which the textures of the chorley were signed with the name of the main character of Far Cry.
Shooter Far Cry 2 was released in 2008. It was the first Ubisoft game in the series. Setcham players await the release of Far Cry 6, which is scheduled for October 7, 2023.
