Ubisoft has developed a new engine specifically for Far Cry 2 called
Dunia, meaning “world,” “earth” or “living” in Parsi but also used in
many languages. The Dunia Engine was built specifically for Far Cry 2
by the Ubisoft Montreal development team. It delivers realistic
destructible environments, special effects such as dynamic fire
propagation and storm effects, real-time night-and-day cycle, dynamic
music system and non-scripted enemy A.I. The engine takes advantage of
multi-core processors as well as multiple processors and supports
DirectX 9 as well as DirectX 10. Only 2 or 3 percent of the original
CryEngine code is re-used, according to Michiel Verheijdt, Senior
Product Manager for Ubisoft Netherlands. Far Cry 2 also supports the
amBX technology from Philips. With the proper hardware, this adds
effects like vibrations, ambient colored lights, and fans that generate
wind effects.
