Under Ubisoft's stewardship, the Far Cry franchise is now celebrating its 10th year - a full decade of series entries and offshoots that have seen the focus of the gameplay and the technology shift dramatically. And this has led to some interesting YouTube offerings from Mark Brown and CrowbCat, showing what look like substantial engine downgrades over the years. So what's going on here? Has the massive increase in processing power provided by the current-gen consoles been matched with a simplification in aspects of the technology?
Beware serious spoilers for every numbered Far Cry game except the first. You have been warned.
Since the announcement of Far Cry 5, details of its map editor and multiplayer portions have been surprisingly thin on the ground.
