Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal in conjunction with Ubisoft Massive, Ubisoft Red Storm, Ubisoft Reflections, and Ubisoft Shanghai and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The game was originally set for release on September 4, 2012 in North America and September 6 in Europe; however, it was subsequently delayed until November 29, 2012 for Australia, November 30 for Europe, and December 4 for North America due to the developers tweaking the final release version of the game.
The main goal of the game is to save your kidnapped friends and escape from the islands and their unhinged inhabitants.
Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter, which also features role-playing game elements including experience points, skill trees, and a crafting system.
The player has the ability to take cover behind objects to break enemies lines of sight and also to peek around and over cover and blindfire.
The player also has the ability to perform silent “takedowns” by performing melee attacks from above, below, or close behind.
The game’s narrative director, Jason Vandenberghe, said that the story mode map is around ten times larger than in the game’s previous installments, indicating that it is still an open world sandbox game.
Players are given the ability to survey and plan out their attacks with stealth takedown combinations and also tag enemies with your camera in order to track their movement once they break the player’s line of sight.
Jason Brody is on vacation with a group of friends on a tropical island in the Pacific when they decide to take a skydiving trip.
But they all land in different parts of a pirate-infested island, and are taken prisoner by a pirate lord named Vaas.
Vaas plans to extort ransom money from their parents, then sell them into slavery.
Jason breaks out of captivity, but his brother is killed in the escape.
Jason is rescued by a man named Dennis, who is part of the Rakyat, the island natives who suffer under the boot of the pirates.
The leader of the Rakyat, a priestess named Citra, initiates Jason into their tribe and he is given warrior tattoos.
He runs a series of missions where he rescues his captive friends one by one while simultaneously helping the Rakyat retake their island, helped at times by Dr. Earnhardt, a man who is an expert on fungi and various native remedies and drugs.
Throughout the adventure, Jason matures into a fearsome warrior and is revered by the Rakyat, though his old friends are disturbed by his transformation into a killer, especially when he contemplates staying on the island permanently.
After tracking down and killing Vaas, Jason then moves on to the southern island, which is controlled by Hoyt Volker, a slave trader and Vaas’ employer, swearing to Citra that he will kill Hoyt for what he did to both the islanders and his brother.
After Jason kills Hoyt and rescues his last companion, he returns to find the house his friends were in burning in fire.
He looks for survivors and finds Dr. Earnhardt lying in a patio mortally wounded.
He tells Jason before dying that he tried to save Jason’s friends but they were taken by Citra and her warriors back to the temple.
He returns to Citra to find that she has taken his friends captive.
She has become absolutely enamored with him, seeing him as the reincarnation of the Rakyat’s mythical warrior ancestor.
The player must then choose whether to execute his friends and remain with Citra or save them and leave the island.
If the player chooses to save Jason’s friends, Jason cuts down the ropes that his friends were tied on and rescues them.
Citra attempts to convince Jason to stay by claiming his friends will move on, and that he should stay in the jungle and become king.
Jason states that the violence is done and that there will be no more blood.
Dennis arrives claiming that Citra saved him and the other followers.
He attempts to kill Jason for betraying Citra, but Citra moves in front of Jason and is stabbed, mortally wounding her.
Citra tells Jason she loves him and begs him to not leave before she dies, with Jason saying he is sorry.
Soon, Jason and his friends leave the island by boat. Jason narrates that he can’t come back from what he has done, as he believes he’s a monster and feels the anger inside him, though he also believes that there is still somewhere inside him that’s more and better than that.
If the player chooses to join Citra, Jason executes his friends and has sex with Citra. Just after it, Citra stabs him, saying that their child will lead the tribe, and that he dies as the warrior he has become.
Now this is a great FPS game, the online is just as good as any other but with the added bonus of a map editor (not as good as Far Cary 2′s map editor but still a great bonus).
Single player is excellent so if you like more realistic effects & gamplay in your FPS then this is for you & the animals added this time round is a great addition to the game.
Co-Op is good to but could be better especially with hos they are trying to make it have the depth that GTA & Saints Row have!
Map editing is excellet but the option to have windows & doors that can be shot to bits or blown up has been taken out the game which is a big bummer for me as I loved the interaction you can make with your home made maps plus they took out the option to add weapons & vehicles wich I thik was the biggest mistake they have made as the they made the map editiong great.
If you are interrested in testing out my maps please do download them from the game MP screen!
My 1st map is called “Thorpe Acres” aka. The Village: (http://manglamedia.wordpress.com/far-cry-3/the-village-fc3-map/) by Mangla, I will be adding two other maps soon, the next one will be called ”TryCross Zoo”.
