Insanity, insanity, I've been going a little insane trying to put together Far Cry 3's story from the bits and pieces of their media campaign. That's not to say it isn't fantastic, as they've represented their cast of crazies very well, but it's only with the release of this final story trailer that the big picture starts to come together. Far Cry 3 is a story of transformation, about a main character with a name an a voice going to extreme lengths to rescue his friends and the twisted path he'll take to do so. We got a game here, folks.
Out of all the trailers that Ubisoft has released, this one has drawn me in the most. It's not as action packed, or as intense as some of the others, but it adds a personal element that draws me in. To be fair, it seems to start off a little bit like a horror flick, where a group of college coeds ends up at the wrong place at the wrong time and things go real bad. It's a bit hokey, but knowing there's an island ahead just waiting to be explored... I can't wait.
Far Cry 3 is scheduled for a December 4 release date in North America, November 29/30 in Europe and the UK. News hit early this week that the game had gone gold and that it would launch consequently across all platforms.
