New Far Cry 3 “Tyrant Hoyt” Trailer Piles on the Crazy

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3–the successor to 2008’s surprise hit Far Cry 2–is hot on our heels, ready to throw us once more into the gorgeous tropical landscapes and inhuman savagery that the series is known for. Ubisoft has been focusing their marketing campaign on story and character more than the mechanics. The newest trailer brings us another peek into the twisted, beautiful brutality–beautality, if you will.

Far Cry 3 is a first-person-shooter with experience points, mild leveling, and crafting mechanics in an open sandbox world of terror and death.  Players will take the role of Jason Brody, a new protagonist for the series. Jason is just a tourist on vacation with his buddies and his girlfriend, and looks to just be a normal guy (with a LOT of tattoos) in a horrific situation. This newest trailer in the appropriately titled “Savages” character video series plays more like a horror movie than an action game.

[adsense250itp]The focus is now on the crazed tyrant Hoyt (who looks like he will fit right in with fellow crazies Vaas and Buck).  Hoyt runs the largest slave trading ring in the South Pacific and does so by ruling with a deadly set of rules.  We see one of these rule-breakers burned alive inside of a cage by Hoyt.  To defeat Hoyt, Jason (along with his bald muscular partner) will have to sabotage the slave organization from the inside rather than just merely killing the psychotic man.  While the trailer does feature the normal amount of shooting and stabbing, it maintains a lot of twisted and dark humor.  Ubisoft is definitely pulling out all the stops when it comes to characterization and the definition of insanity.

Far Cry 3 looks to feature exceptionally bloody melee combat and stealth takedowns–playing the game around your children or the Pope would not be advised. If your children are the Pope, you’re doubly screwed.

The previous trailer, “The Tribe”, showed off Jason’s encounter with a group of indigenous people with apparently mystical powers. There’s a good chance Jason Brody’s inevitable supernatural abilities will stem from the shamans and spirit-folk of the mysterious Tribe. Considering the previous “Savages” trailer contained at least two or three clear instances of Jason Brody’s death (burning alive, drowning via cinderblock, and jet-ski explosion), odds of gaining incredible jungle powers are high.

If it all feels a bit lonely for you, Ubisoft announced that there will be a co-op campaign with its own story and maps. Two to four players can progress through the story, which actually serves as a prologue to the main story. More of a crime thriller than the main campaign, the co-op campaign follows four people on a mission of revenge to reclaim money that has been stolen from them.

On Dec. 4, fall into the roaring rampage (and possibly punch a tiger in the face) with Far Cry 3. In Europe, Far Cry 3 will be available Nov. 30, giving players at least five more days to commit tropical homicide in exotic locales.
