Far Cry 3 Coming September 4, 2012; New Trailer Packs Incredible Visuals

For all of you PC gamers who didn't play the Uncharted series, and are starved of the visually-intense tropical-island setting that Dead Island miserably failed in, Far Cry 3 promises to be a bomb! Ubisoft released the latest "Stranded" trailer on the 15th, with a fuller trailer slated for later today, that shows incredibly detailed visuals, that are a throw-back to the original Crytek-made Far Cry. The trailer follows a possible protagonist touring a tropical island with his explorer friends, most of it is shown in found-footage style, leading up to one of the explorers' encounter with the game's antagonist. The trailer also gives out the release-date, September 4, 2012.

The trailer video can be watched here.

Caution: The trailer contains strong-language, violence, and dubstep.

The only thing that can save you Ubisoft is to let go of the DRM. Then I will consider buying your mediocre games once they hit the bargain shelf.

Ya know I forgot all about the always on DRM. I REALLY hope this game doesnt have that. If so then screw this game.

I haven't seen the trailer yet (I'm about to after this post) but if it comes with Ubisoft's legendary 'consumer friendly' DRM then I'll pass. :rolleyes:

EDIT: Yeah, the graphics are so almost real that they're deep into the uncanny valley. It's just weird.

That trailer plays like a movie though, one has no idea what the gameplay is like. They should have given us some idea of that.

I hate when people see "movies'' like this and say ''wow'' expecting the game to look like that and in reality it look like shit in comparison.

my point... so many people are already going WOW! and really it is just CGI... this CGI only looks as good as CGI has for years... not impressive. the in game footage doesn't look much better than Far Cry 2 imo. :shadedshu

The game uses the same engine as the Far Cry 2, so I am not worry of game quality. They even said it is an improved version of the engine special tuned for vegetation and water effects. Cannot wait. The trailers seems to advertise a really good game.

This!

And I am not saying the game will not be good or bad... if it is as good as 1 I will love it and if its not a pile of junk like 2, I will get 2 minutes into it and hate it and uninstall

Yeah, FC2 sucked big time. On the other hand, Far Cry 1 was 2x times better than all Crysises and Farcry 2 combined!

I enjoyed Farcry 2. I liked riding around killing random bandits with a gold AK.

Im getting the game if theres much less driving and if guns actually kill the enemy instead of take a fully clip to the face.

Not to bad. The beach area looked similar to dead island. I really liked far cry 2 but this one seems way different. Gonna look it up and get more info on it. Big far cry 2 fan but not a ubisoft fan.
