Synopsis

Beyond the limits of civilization lies an island, a lawless place ruled by piracy and human misery, where your only escapes are drugs or the muzzle of a gun. This is where you find yourself, trapped in a place that’s forgotten right from wrong, a place that lives by the principles of violence. Discover the island’s bloody secrets and take the fight to the enemy; improvise and use your environment to survive. Beware the beauty and mystery of this unexplored paradise and live to outwit its roster of ruthless, desperate characters.
You’ll need more than luck to survive.

It looked pretty good. I wouldn't go as far to say it is GOTY anything.
I mean, what does it do better than the rest of the game industry standard of Shooters?

Best thing I've seen from E3 up to this point. I never expected to see a first-person cutscene I actually like.

Just caught the end. I really loved Far Cry 2. Once I started listening to my own music while playing it I could play for hours.

Have to watch the whole thing.

Farcry 2 looked good no one would question its atmosphere, its the game play that sucked.

Awesome, I'm so down with a new Far Cry.

This might sound crazy, but I'd honestly prefer that they take formula of FC2 (open world, realism stuff, etc) and improve on it instead of trying to emulate the first game. I enjoyed the game despite it's flaws, and a sequel that fixes it's shortcomings could be a damn classic. Can't see the footage right now but hopefully it's as badass as it should be.

Super well done trailer and game play shown off. I hope they do the multiplayer justice this time. FC2 multi was a joke.

Game of E3 so far. Far Cry 2 was so mediocre but a simple gameplay video brought my faith for Far Cry back.

It seems like they're trying to mix FC1 and FC2 together for this one.

I hope for the best. I was really disappointed with FC2, but it did have a lot of great ideas (which it didn't do well at all). Hopefully they'll get it right this time.

It actually doesn't look that amazing at all. Looks like a console version :/


i agree. thought it looked very standard issue for a current gen console game. nothing extra special.

Was not a fan of 2 due to malaria and bad mission structure/no fast travel, hopefully 3 is a bit better.
