Far Cry 2 update to add predators

Lions, tigers and killer cows (maybe not the last one) in first update

The first 'non-patch' update for Far Cry 2 will add predatory animals and killer beasties, says the latest issue of PC Gamer UK.

"The game will be released with only herbivores," reads PCG's The Spy column. "But there's a real chance that the game could end up with more vicious animals in DLC," such as lions, tigers and hopefully hungry, hungry hippos.

The retail version sports boring old Zebra and Deer that simply flop over when you peg them with a rifle (we've tried). Apparently, Far Cry's devs told us, this is so that players don't get too distracted and go off maiming giraffes. We think it's a brilliant idea, frankly.

In the same issue PCG issued the first verdict on the Far Cry sequel, awarding it a massive 94% and calling the shooter an "absolutely superb game".

"After playing Far Cry 2, I'm simply unable to go back to straight and simple first-person shooters," its review reads.
