Far Cry 3 – PS3/Xbox 360/PC

Players will have to survive through any means necessary: whether it’s by stealth or by making their enemies into Swiss cheese with a barrage of bullets. Far Cry 3 features a truly open-world FPS adventure, where it is up to the player as to what becomes of them. Gamers will also partake in an immersive story, as well as a multiplayer that rewards effective teamwork. For those who are looking for an additional challenge, the map editor can be used to create and access new trials. Far Cry 3 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on Dec 4.
