Discover one of the most beautiful but also most hostile environments in the world, Africa. You are sent to this war-torn region to assassinate the Jackal, a mysterious arms dealer who has rekindled conflict between local warlords, jeopardizing thousands of lives.

In order to fulfill your mission you will have to become a gun for hire, trapped in a war-torn African state stricken with malaria, and forced to make deals with corrupt warlords on both sides of the conflict in order to make this country your home.

Play the warring factions against each other, identify and exploit their weaknesses, and neutralize their superior numbers with surprise, subversion, cunning and, of course, brute force.

After neglecting this page for quite sometime I've decided to clean everything up a bit. The biggest change is that I've moved GES to a newer version of SweetFX. This should allow it to be used on all versions of FC2. (Including the Steam Fortune Edition!) I've removed a bunch of old comments regarding technical issues as they should be fixed. Just make sure you have your game running on DirectX 9.

A common complaint about GES in the past is that the game is too dark with the mod installed. This is due to the nature of FC2 and the method I've used to create this mod. The default brightness, contrast, and gamma settings can look a bit wonky even on properly calibrated monitors. I suggest tweaking these values in-game until you achieve your desired result. Personally I only need to bump gamma up a bit and then everything looks fantastic. However, everybody's results will differ. Just experiment!

I've also re-cut the original trailer which you can view below.

I hope you enjoy the mod and your time spent in colorful Africa!

So uhm... Still no SDK? Really, I've finished the game twice, mostly completed it countless times, etc. etc. Wtf is Ubisoft thinking? This game is going to die if they don't wise up.

Really, I came here in the hopes it was modifiable by now. After playing the singleplayer for some hours I have quite a few ideas that would improve the game in my opinion. No big changes either.

Hmm, really? Didn't play Far Cry 2, but I'm disappointed that AC1 & AC2 don't/won't have SDKs, either. (I.e. they won't be easily moddable.)

Does Ubisoft give them at all?

For ****'s sake. The game has been out for over a year and you still bash it even though your half-assed point was made months ago. You seriously need something better to do you troll.

I post because I want to warn others before they waste thier money on this steaming pile of crap game.
I was ripped off, never finished it because it became the most boring, tedious back and forth, check point re-spawning when you just turn around, malaria ridiculous, failure let down of a sequel. BLAH.

Fanboy retorts are the same as trolling.

The game's worth 20-30$ so I don't know what your complaining about, I never could get into Crysis game-play, FC2 is by far much better ( un-modded gameplay wise ) and is a decent RPGFPS.

If you have ever played a RPG you will know that these type of game's are a bit of work ( Yes I know this game is a FPS ). Go play Gothic and then come back.

Brilliant game from a very good game developer company. If you love open world games, especially FPS games, then this would be something that you will love. This game throws you into a hostile environment and basically anything can kill you; from malaria to hang-glider crashes. You will have to survive by relying on the only few weapons you have that can be by times, not really reliable after all, and as well as your buddies that can bust you out of a firefight when needed. This game is in my opinion…
