Seeings as Far Cry 3's been outed as a late-September release for Ubisoft, it's about time for the title to start demonstrating how it intends to woo you. These shots offer some clues, mixing up the trailer's handheld descent-into-psychological-turmoil plotline with some good old-fashioned guns 'n' ammo. And explosions, and knives, and cars, and... so forth.
Among the many winsome sights offered by these screens, you'll also note the state-of-the-art, bleeding-edge technology used to render a complete absence of game-crippling supermutants – a welcome development in any game that looks this much like a really, really pretty advance on the original Far Cry. Note also the apparent inclusion of a “collect rare mushrooms for a strange old mentor” section – putting the game in the company of several Zelda games, any number of Carlos Castaneda books, and, um, Cooking Mama? You're free to guess which direction the game may elect to take things...
