Far Cry 3 screenshots are like beautiful picture postcards but with more dead people

If you ignore the dead dudes floating in the water, the setting for Far Cry 3 could be such a lovely holiday destination. Just bathe in the blue-sky palm-tree sunshine loveliness of those screenshots. They're so bloody tropical we should probably get diphtheria and tetanus vaccinations before even looking at them. So if it's all rain and greyness outside where you are, make your eyes happy by browsing the following pictures (but try to ignore the nasty stuff like corpses and executions).

If you have a vague feeling that you've seen these pics before, it's because at least some of them (maybe even all of them, but I can't remember every single frame) are taken from the E3 reveal video. If you've got 7 minutes to kill, you should go watch that video because its does a wonderful job of making Far Cry 3 look like a very sexy prospect indeed.

Here's some useful info that I feel obliged to include: Far Cry 3 is a first-person shooter for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. It's currently scheduled for release February 2012.

    This looks so refreshing. Looooved FC2. Never played FC1 though. :(

    I have Far Cry 1 & 2, loved them, lots of fun. I just always thought that the animation's posing was a bit awkward. I still see it in these screenshots too. I'm sure it's difficult enough to render these, and properly propping characters is quite a task, but I've seen it done correctly so for a high end team such as this, I would think they could do it.

    I know this is going to do good. I just hope it gets rid of that annoying health system from Farcry 2. Seriously, a 10-20 second health refill in a fast paced shooter? Anyway, yeah, I'm excited for this next installment

    I am beyond excited for this game

    You know what would be funny in that fourth screen? It would be funny if Voss missed. At least, it would be funny for the couple of seconds before he flipped out.

    Hmmm, Farcry 2 looked very nice also. It was let down by everybody trying to murder you everywhere you went. Then you had that pesky Malaria. Apart from that, Good game!

    Can't wait. Absolutely loved Farcry 2. My only complaint was that it didn't have enough jungle. I wanted to move around through some heavy foliage. I loved the map editing tools that came with it too. Hope that comes back too. Me and my friends can't wait.

    Number 2 pic; The new Extreme sport. Anyone who want to feel alive must try it.

    It peaked my interest, I need to see some more before I add it to my pre-order list.

    I hope it's as good as the first game. Looks like they got the color scheme right.

    Excited about Far Cry 3. Love that its got color. If there is ONE thing I want brought back from FC2 is the breakable weapons. Use a weapon long enough and it will break. Loved that in FC2.
