Ubisoft has announced plans to release a new patch for Far Cry 2 that will add in a new game mode to the game at the request of the community.

"A lot of questions have been raised on the forums about a hardcore mode feature," said a Ubisoft spokesperson on the official forums.

"Today we are happy to confirm that you will be able to enjoy this new mode on all platforms with our next wave of patches."

The hardcore mode will affect the multiplayer side of the game primarily by the look of things, adding a new damage model that should give the game a more realistic feel, as well a method of tweaking the spawn times (though not rate) of players. All weapons will get increased damage and enemy names will now disappear when the grace period ends.

On top of this and in order to keep things simple, a new filter will be added to the server browser that will let players search for or de-list hardcore matches.

"We hope that you will like the changes our team has implemented to let you enjoy the game, and play it the way you want," finished the Ubi spokesperson.
