Today at their E3 2011 press conference Ubisoft showed off something that I didn’t expect in the slightest, Far Cry 3. It may have been far from expected, but dear God it’s something I’ve wanted for a long time as Far Cry 2 is easily one of my favourite games of the generation.
The Far Cry 3 demo shown off at Ubisoft’s keynote revolved around a man being captured by militants, given a pair of cement shoes, before being sent towards a watery grave. Narrowly managing to escape, the man then brutally kills several people with a knife before hijacking a helicopter that gets shot down by a rocket launcher. Intense!
The awesome demonstration aside, not much is known about the title yet aside from it being developed by Ubisoft Montreal, alongside Ubisoft Shanghai and Massive Entertainment. Be on the lookout for Far Cry 3 in 2012.
