This is such an awesome idea. I cannot wait, it's practically my dream game.

Also possibly a great commentary on how little video games have progressed presentation-wise, :lol. The overindulgent self-aware 80's vibe will probably quash any and all "but I killed so many dudes" narrative problems.

This screen is definitely out in the open:

The only difference seems to be that there's a hardcore 80s "future war" filter on everything, including the sky, so it looks really oppressive. Pretty neat actually!

Okay, props for Ubisoft for going off the fucking rails. This and the alternate universe AC3 DLC is great.

it's probably what you're saying with the whole filter thing, considering that it looks like there's a usable jeep there.

I gotta agree. They've been hitting all the right notes lately.

Nope, it's a stand-alone game.

I'm not really sure what this has to do with FC3 actually.

It's probably inspired by stuff like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cta8KBPAjE

It would bum me out. Although if it's a stand alone XBLA release I doubt it'll be an entire open world, the thing that made FC3 such fun was the emergent gameplay. A corridor shooter would be pretty disappointing.

I've been listening to powerglove and the recommended artists in the last page all day. I had no idea that this type of 80's music was still a thing. So damn good, I hit the jackpot. Thanks guys.

Everything about it suggests standalone.

Holy crap, screens look incredible. I don't particularly mind if it's a linear experience either, just give it to me now.

Is there any sign of scifi/80's/retro in Far Cry 3?

Something tells me it's going to be like inFamous 2's Festival of Blood.
