Far Cry for Xbox only

But only for time being.

Ubisoft has confirmed to Eurogamer that the console version of PC shooter Far Cry Instincts is currently only planned for Xbox.

That's not to say the previously mooted PS2 version won't ever happen, however. A Ubisoft representative told us that "Other formats are being considered," adding that there was "a very big possibility" of the game appearing on Sony's console.

Far Cry Instincts puts you in the role of Jack Carver, a man struggling for survival as he faces off with a load of trigger-happy mercenaries in a tropical wilderness. Expect lots of stealth, trap-setting and long range battles as well as close-up combat.

You get a healthy arsenal of realistic-looking weapons to play with, and vehicles include ATVs, gunboats and hang gliders. As you progress through the game your skills improve and your senses become heightened, so you can move faster, spot your enemies from further away and even track their scent.

Intense multiplayer gameplay is promised, along with the option to build custom maps in real-time and upload them via Xbox Live for tailor-made deathmatches.

Far Cry Instincts is out on September 22. In the meantime you'll find some screenshots here, and a rather excellent trailer on Eurofiles.
