Far Cry 3 Cinematic Trailer Reveals Release Date And Story Details

by Kyle Hilliard on Feb 15, 2012 at 06:20 AM

[Update] Ubisoft has been kind enough to offer the trailer directly so you no longer have to scrounge around the Internet to find the version with German subtitles. The trailer also has the North American release date for the game.

Far Cry 3 will be releasing September 4, and will apparently include four additional missions when pre-ordered from GameStop. Check out the trailer below.

[Original story] A German site let loose a cinematic trailer for Far Cry 3 that technically wasn't supposed to be available yet. There was no gameplay to be seen, but it did offer some plot details, a release date, and an interesting haircut for the player character.

According to the trailer formerly featured on, Far Cry 3 will be releasing September 6, but that could just be the European release date. It looks like the game will put players in the shoes of a kidnapped, presumably college-aged young adult who looks like he would have no problem referring to his pals as "bro" without the slightest hint of irony.

Unfortunately, the trailer has already been pulled, but it should be officially available soon.
