Reports indicate that the original source code for the first Far Cry game has leaked onto the website Internet Archive.

The file was uploaded to Internet Archive and titled "Far Cry 1.34 Complete", but according to reports, it's unclear if the source code contains updates or patches. However, the fact that the title contains .34, suggests that the files contain patches, but according to gamers who have downloaded the source code, it's "not complete, but close".

"From my educated guess, this is some source tree leak for the PC version of the game to add support for the Ubisoft game launcher / DRM," posts one gamer.

"It does contain some .exes but no Xbox code and no game assets. The code that is there doesn't compile without 332 errors (I could have the dev env setup wrong too). So, I think you could get some debug PC version of this game running if you put in the effort and learnt the code base."

Some Redditors reminisced on playing Far Cry 1 for the first time and the difficulty of the game.

"Ah yes Far cry 1 where the enemies could launch RPG 7 with 100% accuracy from outside of the render distance," wrote CryptographerPlus661

For those that don't know, the original Far Cry title was developed by Crytek using CryEngine in March 2004. If you are interested in checking out the source code for yourself, or would like to read more about the leak, check out the Reddit thread here.
