According to Bertrand Helias (Senior Producer, Far Cry 2) via PS Blog today, the Far Cry 2 Space is launching in PlayStation Homeís closed BETA!
To quote: The space will invite players to dig deeper into the gameís vast African landscape. Users will have the opportunity to investigate in-game environments, including a bombed-out train station that has been converted into the ad hoc office of Reuben Oluwagembi, a journalist caught in the middle of the propaganda conflict between the warring UFLL and APR factions.
In Reubenís office, youíll be able to analyze an interactive map of the game world to strengthen your knowledge of the Far Cry 2 environment to develop your strategy for future missions. Locate guard posts, safe houses to save the progress of your game, weapon shops to buy new weapons, and bus stations to expedite your travel across the expansive land.
Players will have access to Reubenís files containing various pictures, articles, and dossiers that will delve deeper into the background of The Jackal, as well as that of the other warlords and opposing factions. And finally, multiplayer game of Mancala that uses bullets as game pieces will be fully playable.
Hope you enjoy it and be sure to look out for new features as weíll be updating the space regularly. More PlayStation 3 News...
