Far Cry 3: Six Ways It Will Test Your Sanity

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 returns to the franchise’s roots by replacing the African setting of the second game with tropical islands reminiscent of the original Far Cry. The move doesn’t seem to be a step back, though, as Far Cry 3 looks to improve on everything that made the previous installment such a success. Players will take on the role of Jason Brody as he attempts to escape the island and its various insane residents. While shooting his way through enemies, Jason will also have to remain sane as his time on the island begins to take a toll on his psyche. Here’s a small dose of what you can expect to test your limits during your time when Far Cry 3 releases on December 4th.

1.  The emphasis on being truly first-person

Many first-person shooters put you in the shoes of a gun-toting protagonist but few make you feel like you are anything more than a pair of hands with a gun. Far Cry 3 wants to embody the idea that the player is Jason and you are seeing the world through his eyes. The camera moves realistically as he climbs ladders, drives, swims, and escapes death. You will also have to look on helplessly as a tiger bites your arm, an insane pirate holds you hostage, or you wrap up a bullet wound. Ubisoft wants to immerse players in this island sandbox by having them do more than just aim behind the crosshairs.

2.  Watch what you eat

[adsense250itp]In Far Cry 2 you had malaria and constantly had to take medicine to prevent its negative effects. While malaria was mostly a nuisance, Far Cry 3 introduces a system of medicines and drugs. A doctor in the game will give you recipes for certain ingestible items and you can find the ingredients by cutting down plants or fungi. Be careful, though, because you might eat something that could make you sick or cause some serious hallucinations. It isn’t certain how these hallucinations and visions will affect gameplay; if anything they certainly look cool.

3.  Searching for treasure

One element of Far Cry 3 that really intrigues me is how you can search for treasures hidden within old ruins. Footage has shown that treasure can be discovered after going through some Indiana Jones-style temple contraptions. I have high hopes that the hunt for treasure will open up a puzzle/platforming aspect of the game, making it more than just a shooter.

4.  That wild animal over there thinks you look tasty

What kind of island would it be if there weren’t any animals? The islands are populated with animals ranging from dogs to tigers and most of them are probably out to kill you. Killing an animal will give you the chance to skin it and then sell the pelt for money. If you are clever enough then you might be able to use a wild animal to your advantage. Keep in mind that you aren’t the only food around and the ferocious tiger could end up attacking the men shooting at you.

5.  Drive or fly, just don’t crash

Far Cry 3 reminds me a lot of Just Cause 2—one of my favorite open world games of this generation—and not just because both take place in a huge open-world jungle. Like in Just Cause, Far Cry gives you the ability to conquer territories all over the island chain. Not only that but you can drive long distances or even use a hang glider to fly high over enemies before dropping down on them with a knife. Sometimes nothing feels better than being able to drive through an open world and maybe encounter something you’ve never seen before. Hopefully your car doesn’t break down close to an enemy base.

6.  Take on the world…with friends

Ubisoft is introducing a co-op campaign that can be played with four people. Generally, co-op is a welcome addition for anyone who enjoys playing with friends and I’m sure the case will be the same with Far Cry 3. And while the co-op campaign looks entertaining enough, I’m more excited about the possibility that elements from the single player will carry over. Will players be able to fall under the spell of a hallucinatory plant? Will there be a survival mode that tests which player can brave the dangers of the island the most? I certainly hope so.

Far Cry 3 has the potential to not only improve upon its predecessor but to become one of the best first-person shooters of the year. I don’t know how they do it, but Ubisoft always manages to improve when it comes to sequels. If they pump as much life into the game as they did with the rebooted African landscape, then Far Cry 3 is going to be a wonderful addiction.
