Today it´s official - we changed! The former Half-Life 2 modification Pandora Forces will now be continued as a FarCry modification. There are various reasons for this decision, e.g. Crytek (developer of Farcry) assured us of a special support. Furthermore the FarCry-engine is much better for our project, that is based on jungle combat in the South American rain forest. In opposite to the Half-Life 2-engine, the FarCry-engine is able to produce huge outdoor-levels with a very close vegetation. In cause of this fact we decided to change the engine, because we want to have the best conditions for our project.

In addition we´re sure, that the ones, who want to play our mod will be glad too, because it will be releases befor the HL² release! In this way we´ll want to point to the announcement to our closed beta, which will be in April. The beta will proceed in different steps - the more steps, the more tsters will be allowed. After the closed beta there will be a public beta!
