This is a normal occurrence which happens several times a year so give it a few hours/days/weeks then they'll be up and running again until their next scheduled breakdown :).

Unfortunately this is one of the things you have to deal with with FC2. I remember they went down quite a bit when I was going for the MP. Ubisoft, despite their many flaws, do have a pretty good track record when it comes to shutdowns (as far as I recall) so unless it comes from one of their official channels I would just keep on trying.

On a side note, was this game any good? I always wanted to check it out. Funny story, awhile back (years ago) I was at the store, I believe it was Best Buy. I was out of games to play on the PlayStation. I was standing there looking at two games. This one, Far Cry 2 and another called Fallout 3. I was unable to make up my mind and stood there reading both game descriptions over and over. Then out of nowhere someone walks up behind me and can tell my frustration. He leans in and quietly whispers, get the Fallout 3. It is a way better game and you will love it. I had nothing to loose so I grabbed the Fallout game and left. For the first time in a very long time, someones game recommendation was actually good. I always wonder what I missed out on with Far Cry 2. I did however play the third one and really enjoyed it, well all but the fact that the main character who you play is kind of a cry baby.

I can't agree with that, because of them i have only 1 game with impossible platinum => Pure football

 

Ubisoft just closed server without any warning (despite the fact that they had to warn people about it 30 days before doing so ... but they just didn't care about it -_-)

 

That's why i have so many games started with only MP done (Far Cry 2 for example XD) ... just to avoid server closure without warning =/

If you can overlook the many glitches and a weak ending, then the single player is ok but the MP is some of the most broken garbage you will ever have the misfortune of playing. If the single player campaign ever gets remastered and released as a standalone, then you can do a lot worse than punt on it but in it's current PS3 incarnation it's one to avoid.

Thank you. I really appreciate the information. Last thing I need is another broken game on my trophy list. Stupid Warhammer Quest 😡

I completed the mp trophies like 10 days ago and I've received that message many times while boosting it, even if everything was fine again after restarting the game/console.

Hope it's just temporary I know the struggle about that garbage multiplayer.

I’m planning on chasing the platinum at some point so I hope this isn’t a full on server shut down.

Same boat, this honestly is the golden rule if you're starting ps3 games in 2020. Online comes first, always.

The single player game is great if you don't care that much about trophies

 

The multiplayer is not worth it at all.

Thank you for the information. I feel at this time it would be best to spend that time working on other games that are filling up my backlog.

@LETSGOBOWLING24 It's back up again and has been for about the past two hours. Just finished the Warlord glitch yesterday when servers went down...26/27 weapons done. Checked this morning and match creation was fixed, played enough to finish off weapons and put this awful grind behind me!
