Far Cry 3 gameplay trailer is seven intense minutes of very convincing 'hello-you'll-want-to-play-me' action

So Ubisoft gave us our first look at Far Cry 3 during last week's E3. You can read about that first look right here. Or, alternatively, you could just watch this extensive gameplay trailer, which is exactly what our first look talks about. It's seven minutes of footage that will convince you that Far Cry 3 is a game you'll want to play. It's got explosions and shooting and stabbing. It looks absolutely tropical lovely lush. And it introduces an actually interestingly psychotic villain called Voss, who seems intent on killing anyone that isn't a member of his own personal army.

With all Voss' talk of doing the same thing over and over, we expect that Far Cry 3's hero, Jason Brody, will be locked in a perpetual game of cat-and-mouse with the nut-job bad guy as he tries to escape the island. Or maybe they patch things up, become great friends and open a little beach hut bar together. Which would be nice.

    I find it very interesting that Far Cry 3's Voss seems to be completely off his rocker whereas Far Cry 2's The Jackal was extremely down to Earth and intelligent. It might not be happening, but I'd love to see the Jackal make another appearance. He was an amazing villain.

    @RicePuddingUK Who else would be bad ass enough to do all that? I guess a British dude could gnaw through the rope with his Dr. Suess teeth. All I gotta say is, "Never get between an American male and pussy."

    Niice. Was it just me or did anyone get a dungeons and dragons vibe? Like some of the options you choose might not go how you thought. Or maybe there's a Freedom Fighters element where destroying certain facilities or bridges etc incapacitates parts of the island enough for you to go further. This really got my interest, this is what I want, not Call of Cuties.

    Voss doesn't have memory loss or "a bit of autism." He's just creepy and nuts, that's what makes him preaching about insanity "unsettling," because he's clearly insane himself. I hope it's the linear but open design of Far Cry and Crysis. Far Cry 2 really became a chore.

    This looks great. I also noticed that you no longer have to empty half a magazine of bullets into a guys chest to kill him. I didn't really find that annoying in Far Cry 2, but it will be nice for it to be a bit more realistic.

    Cool, watching this game play trailer makes me want to know what'll happen next. This game is now on my radar.

    Looks bloody lovely! Can't wait to play it. I hope the fire mechanic will still be in place. Only concern is that little GTA style map. I liked the map system in FC2, it seemed more organic in keeping with the natural environment. Oh and that mohawked bad guy seemed a bit cheesy. The Jackal will take some beating I reckon.

    A lone American with a gruff voice trapped in a mysterious place with a missing girlfriend/ original(!) Still looks epic though

    @DynamicJul: You should've listened to the first 18 seconds. "If you weren't able to join us for the Ubisoft Conference, or didn't happen to catch it online, here's the full playthrough..."
  • ThatGuyFromTV - June 13, 2011 2:11 p.m.

    Voss sounds like he has a bit of autism. Or a really bad memory.

    Oh boy! Quicktime events?!
  • DynamicJul - June 13, 2011 1:03 p.m.

    Wasn't this already shown during their conference?

    Very interesting villian....

    Looks pretty good, another one time play-through though.

    err typo.. Can I have edit button plz? I tend to post first and regret later.. @andy.. It's basically, "You know what's insane? Doing the same thing over and over again, hoping for different result."
  • andybeans - June 13, 2011 12:15 p.m.

    Looks good, just wish I had sound at work so I could hear what Voss is saying. As he looks like some old mates from my thrash metal days I've mentally inserted a dialogue about scamming dole money and fighting townies ;) My reCaptcha has the medieval f/s letter!
  • quincytheodore - June 13, 2011 12:13 p.m.

    I think there's Exp system for kills. It's good, not as convincing as Tomb Raider, the char models are a bit blocky, but interesting enough. Hopefully the driving and the respawning hostiles local won't make it into the game. And I have the same chipped eyebrow as Voss... It's less dramatic in real life..
