This trailer, which is narrated by a couple of the developers working on Far Cry 3, shows off some of the sandbox elements that players can entertain themselves with. The series appears to be almost going back to the roots when it comes to location, giving players the freedom to explore the giant tropical island of which only a fraction is shown.
It also demonstrates how players can choose their missions and tasks freely, even going on hunting expeditions when they deem it necessary. Bored of taking over enemy camps? Why not go murder a bear and his family in its humble abode? That is if you’re not already being attacked out in the open by a vicious tiger, whom you can also slaughter and loot. Spoils from animals can even be used to craft certain equipment for the character.
It appears that Ubisoft is going wonderfully deep with the freedom and options given to players in Far Cry 3, and we’ll all find out just how much depth there is when it hits store shelves on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on November 29th in Europe and Australia, November 30th in the UK, and December 4th in North America.
