Far Cry 3
Far Cry 3's Alternate E3 2011 Demo Exposed
Written By
View author's profile

Far Cry 2 was a tough game and attempting to stealthily infiltrate a base like this latest E3 2011 trailer for Far Cry 3 shows, was almost impossible. It looks like the stealhy aspects have been improved for Far Cry 3 then, as the game's protagonist manages to sneak up on a guard, snap his neck and drag his body under a waterfall.

You can loot bodies for items and weapons, which starts off this alternate E3 demo with a handy AK-47 and a handgun. From here, the objective is to do a Predator and get to the chopper, picking off mercenaries in the process. Blowing the bridge to cut off reinforcements, Far Cry 3's hero then ziplines into the fray brandishing his pistol while popping enemies for XP points.

This latest gameplay footage is just some of the gameplay we saw behind closed doors at E3 this year. For the full lowdown, read our preview. Far Cry 3 is out in 2012. Check out the new gameplay video with commentary below.

Let’s hope there is some quick travel, unlike the pants exploration that saw me seeing red in the second far cry!

@1 Indeed, I always felt cream-crackered afterwards even though I was only watching him run about 40 miles a game.

Dude was like a gazelle or something!

There is quick travel apparently. They said in their E3 interview they want to implement quick travel. :D

@3 I think the perfect way of doing would be like fallout , where for example you have to see the places in washington before you can fast travel to them. That way youre not missing out on things by seeing them once.

We will see anyway , it seems to be a subject played by ear at the minute.

I'd give my left testicle for Fallout 3-style fast travel in a Far Cry game.

Like #5 said, as long as you had to actually 'see' the various parts of Central Africa before they became options for fast travel you wouldn't miss that sense of exploration the first time round.

@4 - Farcry 2 isn't even a sequel mate, neither is this really. The original games you play some guy called jack carver who gets some bio shit injected in him halfway through the game and you get some great abilities and a decent story. Farcry 2 was just driving from one end of a map to the other as a regular merc, basically they ripped everthing out of the sequel that made the original unique.

You should definatly play the first tho mate, although it looks slightly dated now its still one of the best FPS games EVER made.

This new Farcry looks decent but why even use the name farcry??

@15 Spot on, I always wondered what happened to the whole feral aspect of the game. Not that it's a huge loss, but it did add that unique touch. I'm glad ziplines are back in 3, hopefully they make it into the map editor with many more robust options.

@13 well if you had a brain you would pick up a new one every once in awhile at the safe houses/armories instead of continuing to use a worn out crappy gun

@15 and 19

That was Far Cry Instincts and Far Cry Instincts: Evolution. The original Far Cry didn't have the feral abilities in it and was only for the PC.

What do you mean "improved?" The stealth aspect of Far Cry 2 was so useless that it practically wasn't enough a part of the game, period. I wouldn't say it was improvement, more like its a new feature.

As long as they avoid the little things that killed the second one (ridiculous respawning, lack of checkpoints, hours running to your objective across the map, broken stealth system), this will be awesome.

Let's cross fingers... No Warlord 2.0 and no diamonds all around the giant map!
Anyway, whatever kind of achievements there will be, this game will be awesome!

to correct the first comments, there is quick travel in FC2, you had to take the bus lol. anyway, this is looking very good, i hope they keep up and inovate even more than FC2 did, and where are the awesome wound animations?? man i loved those, i nearly killed myself to watch the guy pull a piece of shrapnel from is arm or something lol

And PLEASE fix the AK iron sights, i mean, those look incredibly bad! rail and front sights? aks are beautifull untouched

@ some guy that asked: the weapon system seems to be like fc2

- meelee (usually machete)
- sidearm ( ranges from pistols to smgs , fc2 had M79, flare gun and IED too)
- Main weapon ( shotguns, assault rifles, snipers etc)
- Special Weapon ( launchers, flamethower, and dart rifle

Off course, the guy in FC3 was using AK, SVD, pistol, machete, so its likely that the sniper rifles have been changed to the special class

@15 Yeah.. a generic fps with "bio shit" and special powers is unique. Right.

Although the first might have been a better game, Far Cry 2 is one of the most unique fps out there. You can't deny that, even if you hate how it turned out. Malaria system, setting, open world-iness..

I am not sure about the in-game XP and the skill point message that popped up. Part of what made the FC series so good was that you were tossed into the situation with what you could find and your own skills.

It looks incredible but I want to know that these skill points are for, if you've noticed that you get points for each kill and at the end, before reaching the helicopter, a message pops up on the left side saying you've got a skill point available. Just no super powers!

@23 In the real world Ak47's are used so much because of the fact that they very very rarely ever jam. So to even have one jam after firing 100 rounds would be unrealistic.
