The latest trailer for Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 asks “How far will you go to get your friends back?”. Alone, on a strange island, Jason must adapt if he wants to survive long enough to save his friends. That won’t be easy though, thanks to the host of colourful characters populating the island.
Ubisoft is ostensibly trying to tell a dramatic story, whilst at the same time including elements of dark humour and hyperbolic action, in Far Cry 3. I get the feeling, though, that this is an almost impossible task in a game that essentially allows the player to become Rambo.
We’ll see if the developer can succeed in merging characters of substance with the over-the-top, one-man army style gameplay that the Far Cry franchise is known for, when the game releases in December.
Until then, enjoy the trailer.
Far Cry 3, developed by Ubisoft, will be available on December 4th, 2012, in the US and November 29th, 2012, in all other territories. It will be playable on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
