A modder has discovered early alien and dinosaur concept art and models for 2004’s Far Cry, alongside a library other bits and pieces that were cut from the game.
The modder, who goes by the handle Changeroftheways, unearthed a tome of concept art, including an unused factory level and a defensive commander NPC. Most interestingly, though, is the inclusion of dinosaur and alien concept art, which would have changed Far Cry‘s feral-based art direction and narrative significantly.
The models seemed close to completion, too. What altered Crytek’s design goal is unknown, but the topsy-turvy nature of the Far Cry series appears to have been there since the start.
