This website is dedicated to support Far Cry 2's multiplayer mode. Among other things, players can download the multiplayer patching utility, that's needed to be able to join online servers, as well as find information on how to play multiplayer over VPN. If you're new here and looking to play, scroll down for more information. If you need help, have questions, would like to share your thoughts with other players, you can join any of the recommended Discord servers on the 'Discord (Help)' page.


Welcome, all far cry 2 players!


Far Cry 2's multiplayer mode is still played today and it's available to anyone thanks to a patching utility called 'FC2MPPatcher'. Apart from fixing a number of hosting related software issues, the utility modifies the game, so it will connect to the community made online master server that was created to revive the multiplayer after its support by Ubisoft officially ended. The new online mode offers the same experience and features to everyone. This patch is available to download on our 'Multiplayer patch' page alongside instructions on how to use it.

"Prepare yourselves for deathmatch!"

You're welcome to use these maps for your own sessions; the only thing asked is that you put 'Mappack1' and this website in the server's name, to make sure everyone, especially new players, understand at all times what they need to do. One simple format would be: '|Mappack1|'. It should give you enough room for a unique server name, to be clearly distinguished from all the other servers. (See the picture below.)

Also, if you want to host a server with the maps regularly, please, refrain from using special characters to make your server to be on top of the match list. Let's share the game fairly.

Currently, there are no ongoing matches all day long, but it's worth to check if there are players at any time. If you want to play and all the servers are empty, it is also worth to wait in a server alone for some time, as someone may join after a while when they see a server with a player and after that more can follow. The most active time currently is Europe evenings.

As Ubisoft has recently announced on their official forum, the online multiplayer support for Far Cry 2 will end on the 1st of June. To save the multiplayer for everyone, a new community master server has been created (by the same team that's behind the multiplayer patch) to replace the game's online services in the future. The latest version of the FC2MPPatcher utility will be needed to be able to play through this new community server. Anyone whishing to play after Ubisoft ended the game's online support should install the latest version now!

Online servers are back!!!

Great news to all the online players: thanks to Ubisoft, the recent issues with online hosting have been resolved and the servers are now back!

Important news: the online multiplayer is ending soon!

In the meantime, the multiplayer is still available to play via Radmin VPN. You can find out how to join on the new 'Multiplayer on VPN' page.

The 'Fortunes Edition Expansion Pack' is needed for playing on some custom maps, as well as on the new 'Ubi' maps that are included in it. It adds extra contents to the game and while the Steam, Uplay and GOG versions all contain this, those who only have the DVD (or an ISO) version of the game, need to install this manually. If your game is this version, it is recommended that you install this too.

Fortunes Edition Expansion Pack for DVD installations

Note: if you have the Steam, Uplay or GOG version of the game, you already have the expansion pack installed and you can skip this part.

Multiplayer changes - Download the new patch now!


Far Cry 2's multiplayer mode is still played, both, online and over VPN. (VPN is what Tunngle used to be, until it shut down in 2018.) In order to play online today, most people need to use a patching utility, called 'FC2MPPatcher', that was created to fix software issues with the game that prevent players from joining servers or hosting successfully. Once the game is patched using the tool, the online mode will be functional again. This patching tool is available to download on the  'Online multiplayer patch' page, alongside instructions on how to use it. The game is also played over Virtual Private Networks in lan mode. While in the past 'Tunngle' was used for this purpose, today 'Radmin VPN' is used by the playing community. More information on this is available on the 'Multiplayer on VPN page'.

Note: eventhough the effective date has passed (June 1st) the game's online services are still working. Ubisoft has said that this is due to the shutdown 'being excecuted in stages' and the proccess will be completed during the following months. Install the latest FC2MPPatcher now and switching to the new community master server will be done for you automatically when the time comes.
