The lights are on
Earlier this week we were treated to a cinematic trailer for Far Cry 3 that set up some of the story. This weekend, a Russian YouTube page uploaded 5 minutes of gameplay footage.
The game looks gorgeous, and the shooting looks like Far Cry in a good way, but some of the most interesting stuff happens around three and a half minutes in. It involves hallucinogenics.
The video does have some bad language, and at least two chest stabbings, so make sure to aware of that before diving in.
Far Cry 3 is releasing on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on September 4.

I really hope they add hitmarkers to all this shooting. apart from that it looks frikking awesome
looks like the characters are a helluva lot more interesting. The one thing I really hated about 2 (other than the anticlimactic ending) was how generic the characters were.
this game looks fun!
looks good... 2 was awesome but got dull at times. hopefully this one shakes it up a bit
After the reveal trailer, I have to admit, I was kinda worried. This looks pretty awesome though! The psychadelic trip was interesting - I wonder if it'll have any effect on the gameplay (i.e. you trip out, but you can take more damage, etc.). My interested is certainly piqued.
I know where I'm having my timeshare this year!
This is getting pre-ordered
The real question here is: can we light the island's forest on fire like in FC2?
I'll wait for gameplay from PC version.
I thought Far Cry 2 was a wonderful game, the animations, the gunplay, the choices. I didn't even mind all the driving because the game was gorgeus. Loved FC:I as well, looking forward to this.
Looks like it is going to be more like farcry 1 than farcry 2 which in my mind is a very good thing. I'm still not convinced but I am definitely going to keep my eye on this one. Could be a great game.
i hope its like the first farcry for the pc.
Definently a Day One buy for me Im glad they're going back to the tropical setting that they started with and getting rid of the things that made FC2 incredibly boring.
All those HUD elements better be optional.
Farcry 2 had a lot of potential and I enjoyed it but I really hope they deliver a game that fulfills that potential with Farcry 3
