The Far Cry series has always been about the best graphics and game play. Although the Environments were Epic the game play was so-so at best. This is all about to change with Far Cry 3. If you don’t know about it? I suggest taking a look inside as I go over the basics and tell you how to pre-order it today!
OK, You all know I’m a huge Call of Duty fan. But I have always liked Far Cry. My issue with it being two things: Always wanting to put the hurt on my PC with the awesome graphics, and NO MULTI PLAYER. This meant it always had a very short shelf life in my house. Well they have decided to take Far Cry and try and make the best FPS Shooter known to man now by adding everything including the kitchen sink into the game. I didn’t think they were going to be able to release it until 2013. So now that it is being released before Christmas? I couldn’t be happier!
Note: OK, This game is rated M as in for Mature Only. So please parents this is not for your 10 year old. Due to language, violence, gore,
Below are the three game modes that are going to be available to you when you get the game on Dec 4th!
This is much more than your basic story mode. It is more like your favorite FPS marrying Skyrim and then creating this game as its love child! It starts with its basic back story. You, your girl, your brother, and friends are on a tropical island partying it up when all hell breaks loose. The main antagonist kills your brother and runs off with your girl and the rest of your friends and is going to sell them on the black market. It might start with the same old premise but things depart quickly from there.
You’ll have to conquer or work with the other characters on the island in order to get your friends back. The decisions you make will affect how the game will be played out. Make the wrong decisions and you could lose your girl and your friends for ever!
Modes of Transport
You’ll be able to use everything from Jeeps, to Jet Ski’s, to Hang Gliders, and Zip Lines to help you get across the huge environments in this version of Far Cry 3. Each has it’s advantages!
Crafting in an FPS?
Although not new in most Fantasy based RPG Games – Far Cry 3 is introducing the ability to skin animals and pick the local exotic fauna to help you earn cash and create injection perks to help you through the Campaign.
Speaking of Critters
You’ll not only have to worry about your human enemies in the game but against the local wildlife as well! But no fear as you know you’ll be able to use them for your advantage!
When the lights go down in a “real-time” game it usually sucks and your waiting for daylight. Apparently not in Far Cry 3. You can play your enemies in some Poker, or play in knife throwing challenges, or since you’ve suddenly become available on the market as it were – you can even obtain some “sexy time” with an island prostitute.
Of course it wouldn’t be a Far Cry game without a multitude of weapons. Not only will it have just about everything you can think of from C-4, Bow and Arrows (with special tips!) to RPG’s and Sniper Rifles – and just about everything in between. What makes this awesome? You can level them up and get upgrades to tweak them more to your play style!
Now you can play with up to 3 other players (besides yourself) and work together to go through specially designed levels and an entirely different story arch. Just make sure you do work together if you wish to survive! You can play with a local split screen for PS3 and Xbox 360 or play with your friends online!
One of the things I really liked were the “mini games” inside of the maps like the RPG Challenge or Sniper Challenge against your team mates on who gets the most kills!
Multi Player in Far Cry?
Although there had been rumors for awhile now their site never really mentioned it. Until the Reveal trailer today that is! Now you can finally play in 14 player teams with your basic TDM or Objective based game modes. That and some crazy perks like blinding the other team so they can’t tell their friends from their enemies? It sounds like it is going to be a LOT of fun!
