Far Cry 3's co-op mode was unveiled at E3 in June with a gameplay demo showing off the characters and objective-driven story separate to the single-player campaign. In the demo you'll see the four-strong squad of characters - Mikhail, Leonard, Tisha and Callum - infiltrating an enemy encampment and shooting up the place.
Like Far Cry 3's multiplayer, the key to success is teamplay and in co-op, you'll have the same buffing abilities including the health boosting battle cry to back up your teammates. However, you can still compete for kills if you like. In the video, the commentary also notes that each location is set on a unique part of Far Cry 3's island with story elements set 6 months prior to Jason Brody's story in the single-player mode.
The gameplay video also shows the range of weapon and item loadout options, with five classes to choose from for each of the four unique co-op characters. The five classes are Warrior, Rusher, Deadeye, Saboteur and Bodyguard. Check out the narrated gameplay video and two screens below to see more co-op action as the squad team up to destroy a valuable bridge, then get ready for trouble in paradise when Far Cry 3 launches on December 4th in North America, November 29th in the UK and November 30th in Europe.
