New Far Cry 2 shots show lighting effects

Ubisoft flicks on the light switch

Those of you, like us, that have been following Far Cry 2 and gawping at the videos will know that Ubisoft is creating some crazy tech for the shooter which makes you go, "Ooh, nice".

New screenshots show off the latest tech developments, in this case the implementation of lighting. The sequel is going to give Crysis a very good run for its money in the visual department, which is kind of funny when you consider Crysis developer Crytek was responsible for the original Far Cry.

We reported in March that Ubisoft plans to release Far Cry 2 on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 this autumn; and that's a date definitely worth marking in your diary.
