We've caught a few glimpses of Ubisoft's upcoming Far Cry 3 sequel, but most of the footage shown so far has revolved around the game's single-player campaign. What of its multiplayer component?
As luck would have it, VG24/7 has written a hands-on piece about the subject, and it's accompanied it with a nicely edited video that shows off the various multiplayer features. Since the video is on YouTube, we can embed it here:
It looks like Far Cry 3's multiplayer mode borrows heavily from the Call of Duty and Battlefield series. I see experience points, leveling up, kill assists, team boosters, air support, and a capture-and-hold gameplay mode, all of which appeared in CoD and BF3 titles before. Still, it looks fun, and little touches like the disorienting nerve gas seem interesting. I might have to give it a shot when Far Cry 3 comes out in September.
