Last week's Far Cry 3 announcement from Ubisoft was missing one notable element: a decent
chunk of first-person footage from the game in action. The company's
rectified that today, with the release of a good five minutes of
in-game footage showing how the title's looking during those bits between cutscenes. There's plenty
of NSFW language in here – but that probably doesn't worry you too
much today (thanks, Presidents)!
first-person-shooting (which is looking just fine, thank you), the
new footage also allows a glimpse at the game's
first-person-crazy-old-pharmacologist-placating elements, all of
which look every bit as pretty and intriguing as you'd expect. Not
much explanation given as to how the game's hero goes from clueless
vacationer to neck-stabbing sociopath – but with Ubi having pitched
the game's story as one of paranoia and psychological turmoil,
that'll just be one more thing to look forward to finding out. That,
or there's something in those mushrooms.
