Mutant Slug returns in it's new form, a modernized version.

Posted by on

Do you still remember this guy? This is the original Mutant Slug which was present in the left over beta files of Far Cry and never made it into the release version of the game.


Slug Original


Over the past time, I decided that I would re-create this mutant entirely from zero and let it shine in it's fullest potential by giving it a more modern look. This means higher grade visuals, textures and the general shape of the creature. Of course, I also altered it to my liking by changing some of it's properties aswell to make it more intimidating to the player, since I thought the original slug is way too tiny to be noticed and poses almost no threat.



I modeled the character, textured it by hand and animated it to be fit for Far Cry. Recreating the Slug has allowed me to give it a multitude of new animations, new sound effects and some special event behaviors it could have which would not be possible with the original slug's limitations. It's AI is fully working in game which was modified aswell, and it is about 90% completed with almost all of it's new animations done, but still needs some polishing to do before I declare it finished. I will record a new video showcasing it soon in gameplay after I polished it more.

You can take a closer peek at it here. It possesses 3D armor in form of geometry on him which is not baked onto the skin as it is the case with the original slug. Though I have not entirely recreated all of it's original armor, I gave it some new implants to its head and back. I gave it new teeth, a mouth and some eyes aswell. His wounds aren't flat anymore, which means the model has steepness to it where there are flesh holes, etc. Overall, what I can say it's a huge improvement from the original Slug.

I gave him more dense detail by giving him skin pores which are visible upclose, poppy veins, and so on.

The last thing about him, is that he's about 7x larger in size than the original slug. He still does fit through airducts and can chase you inside, thus you might be more careful with that.

Thank you for reading.

More updates will await you soon, and while the slug was in production, a new beta weapon was being made which we will showcase to you soon. It is almost nearing it's finish. Once again, we recreated it completely from scratch and gave it a more modernized look to it compared to the vanilla assets, yet we stuck to the references and make sure it looks 1:1 to it's beta counterpart.
