Intel has sponsored the release of two new new free-to-play missions for the PC version of Far Cry 2
as part of its on-going Game On!
The missions, called The Morrocan
and The American
both fit snugly into the main game and sit within the whole Jackal-hunting plot.
is the first mission of the pair and sees the player venturing over to an abandoned Foreign Legion fort in Leboa=Sako territory. There you hope to find an old man with information on where you can continue your hunt for merciless gun-runner, The Jackal.
The second mission, The American
, only unlocks when the first one is completed and sees you tracking down your predecessor in the northern mountain ranges surrounding the Dogon village with the hope that they can put you into contact with a new informant who has crucial data about The Jackal.
Both missions are totally free to play and can be downloaded in the latest patch over at Intel's Game On! site
. Whether these missions will ever work their way over to consoles as part of a free or premium DLC isn't clear yet, but seems doubtful.
