Well i hope punkbuster will be integrated from the start
not like it was with farcry! towards the end far cry died because of hackers and cheats,
If what ive read so far comes to fruition, i think it will beat crysis hands down. i have crysis and altho its great to look at? in multiplayer ffa no buildings collapse trees dont fall no fuel cans or drums to fire at with sniper rifle(enemy in vicinity could be taken out)
and to top the lot you are limited with small maps not a lot of places to go,
where farcry 2 promises an open game travel miles and explore,
i hate the you are leaving the area please return or be punished seems crytek took a leaf from battlefield
looking forward to the release
I would believe pb would be implemented from the start, especially seeing as ubi have been taking a keen interest in pb behind closed doors.
Every game has cheaters, thats a given, and no tool that is available today will stop even 1/2 of them. But pb has developed new methods of catching cheaters other than by pb kicks.
Demos and pb screenshots are a vital tool in a server admins pocket and that is where the majority of pb catches will come from. As long as they are implemented, we have a way of catching hackers
The only game I play that uses PB is Crysis, and I've noticed that I get kicked from servers a lot for no reason. I have heard that it sucks in other games too, but I don't have any other games that use PB, so if they do use it, let's hope they get it working.
Also, FC2 will NEED some sort of file downloader for online play, which Crysis lacks.
