The new Far Cry 3 trailer is a far out, freaky trip, man. [And also extremely violent.]
I'm not sure what to make of the new Far Cry 3 trailer, but I suspect that's the point. It seems to suggest that the apocalyptic levels of mass murder you're going to commit in the game will be fueled at least in part by some naturally occurring hallucinogen; the red ones are apparently pretty good, but I hear the purples will give you a lift on a grey day.
No matter what your preference of color, it looks like you're going to have a pretty wild time on the tropical island of Murdertania, which offers stunning vistas, clear, sparkling waters, unforgettable sunsets, komodo dragons, truckloads of rotting corpses, viciously psychotic henchmen and of course an all-inclusive killing package.
I'm a Far Cry fan from way back so I don't really need to be sold on this game, but even if that wasn't the case, this trailer [and the one before it] would have me paying serious attention. The Ubisoft connection makes me a little nervous, in that it would be hard for me to maintain my anti-stupid-DRM stance in the face of a game that lets me get coked out of my head and go on a triple-digit killing spree, but hopefully Ubi will be able to come up with a better way to protect itself from the evils of piracy by the time Far Cry 3 comes out. Which, for the record, will be September 4, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
