Although I really enjoyed the most of the original Far Cry, the sequel really didn't do it for me—all the driving made the game feel more like Grand Theft Auto than a first-person shooter. Ubisoft has been working on the third chapter in the franchise for over 3.5 years, and an official trailer has now hit the web. Warning: it's loaded with F-bombs and probably isn't safe for work—or younger audiences.
Although the language is a bit much and the footage seems largely taken from cinematic sequences, I have to admit I'm intrigued. The graphics look stunning, and the setup makes me hope for a compelling narrative, even if relies on a tired "save the girl" theme. A gameplay demo from this year's E3 expo shows several minutes of in-game action, plus plenty of additional cursing, and it looks promising.
Far Cry 3 is due out in September, so it should hit before the usual wave of holiday releases. The game is coming out on multiple platforms, and we don't yet know whether the PC will be treated to any graphical enhancements. Given the franchise's roots, it would be nice if PC gamers got to enjoy some extra eye candy, preferrably without having to wait until after the console versions come out.
