Far Cry 3's island chain is home to a variety of castoffs, thugs, and hired guns. It's all overseen by a psychopath named Hoyt. A new trailer for the game shows how he's earned that dubious title, and also introduces us to Sam, who doesn't seem any less sadistic.

As you can see in the embedded video below, Hoyt rules his men through violence and implied torture. He's probably the worst boss you could possibly imagine; reprimands include getting locked in a cage and roasted alive. One of his top commanders is a man named Sam, the child of notorious war criminals. See those tats? They each contain a bit of his victims' blood. Yes, Jason Brody is about to experience the worst vacation ever.

Far Cry 3 is due out December 4 on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Ubisoft recently released a 13-minute video highlighting the game's open world, so check it out in the meantime.
