Far Cry 2 on PS3Ubisoft is offering a massive Far Cry 2 contest where you have a chance to win a copy of Far Cry 2 or an Intel Core i7-965 processor.

The Far Cry 2 contest runs from now until December 30th and you have a good chance of winning because Ubisoft is giving away a mind-boggling 50 copies of Far Cry 2 EACH DAY along with one Core i7-965 unit. So good luck!

Far Cry 2 is Ubisoft’s latest game in the open-world first-person shooter series where you are caught between two rival factions in war-torn Africa. You are tasked with taking out “The Jackal”, a mysterious character who has rekindled the conflict between the warlords, jeopardizing thousands of lives. In order to fulfill your mission you will have to play the factions against each other, identify and exploit their weaknesses, and neutralize their superior numbers and firepower with surprise, subversion, cunning and, of course, brute force.

The game immerses players with a custom-made video game engine built from the ground up. Players discover a true open world gameplay set in Africa, brought to life by high-definition next-gen technology and impressive fire physics that allow you to burn anything in your path.

Far Cry 2 is available now on Xbox 360, PS3 ($60) and PC ($50) and is rated M for Mature (Blood, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language).
