Far Cry 3 takes place in a series of beautiful tropical islands, and that's exactly where it departs from most vacations. Ubisoft has released a new video survival guide, which shows off some of the characters, locations, and activities in the upcoming open-world game.

The island is a deadly place, as the video's narrator explains in one of the most bizarre analogies we've heard in a while. "It's waiting to pounce on you faster than rising gasoline prices."

We don't know about pouncing gasoline prices, but the clip shows at least one pouncing tiger attack.

Look for Far Cry 3 on December 4.
