Far Cry is a First-Person Shooter developed by Crytek Studios and published by Ubisoft in 2004. In Far Cry an Ex-U.S. Special Forces operative named Jack Carver runs his own boat charter business in the south pacific after he quit his former job. One day he is contacted to escort a female journalist to a lonesome, tropical archipelago. But shortly after she arrives at the beach, she disappears and Jack nearly gets killed as mercenaries destroy their anchoring boat. Stranded on a remote beach, Jack decides to fight back against the mercenaries and to search for the missing journalist to find some answers. On his vendetta he explores beautiful beaches, dense rain forests, as well as mines, canyons and even volcanic forests to discover disturbing secrets - secrets that were buried in underground complexes and hidden facilities for a long, long time.
