E3 2011: Far Cry 3 Demo Vid is Lush

Ok, so maybe I got a bit over-excited when they announced Far Cry 3 at Ubisoft's E3 press conference the other day. It may not have been completely out of the blue, but blimey it was dramatic. I think it gained from the fact they just started the demo, without announcing it first. I was all like... oh look... it couldn't be... yes... yes it is!
Here's what we know about the game. You are Jason Brody, a man stranded on a mysterious tropical island that's lawless, savage and cut off from civilization. Within this world you must hack, shoot and explode your way to survival, while facing "the dark side of humanity." Looks like the Hearts of Darkness overtones from Far Cry 2 are here to stay then.
Most interesting, however, is the fact that Ubisoft say you will have to use the natural environment to attack or deceive the enemy. I don't think they mean hide in a bush and throw the odd coconut at bad guys, either. The press release seems to be hinting at something altogether more interesting.
Anyway, that's all just speculation. We'll let you know more once our E3 ninjas sniff out some more info. In the meantime, enjoy the demo video.
