E3 2011: Far Cry 3, New Brothers In Arms Revealed

It's Ubisoft's turn at E3 and like most publishers, they're revealing some new games and release dates.

Among them is Far Cry 3, the next installment in the critically acclaimed shooter series. In development at Ubisoft Montreal (with support from Ubisoft Shanghai and Massive Entertainment), this new iteration will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC some time next year.

Players will assume the role of Jason Brody, "a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island." It's a "savage paradise" where chaos reigns and violence is commonplace, but players will be able to make choices and choose their own fights. As for the gameplay, we'll "slash, sneak, detonate and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of right and wrong."

For more, visit the game's official website. Added Dan Hay, producer at Ubisoft Montreal:

"Far Cry 3 brings something new and unexpected, while still building upon the foundations of excellence that are inherent to the Far Cry brand. Whether you're already a fan of the Far Cry series or jumping into the franchise for the very first time, you're going to be blown away by the gritty story and epic adventure we're going to deliver."

Ubisoft also unveiled Brothers in Arms Furious 4, which is in development at Gearbox Software. This one will hit the PS3, 360 and PC in the first half of 2012. Unsurprisingly, the new franchise entry is set once again in World War II; they're describing this experience as a "brutal first person shooter that offers an exciting campaign mode playable with up to four players in co-op, as well as an extensive competitive multiplayer mode." Players will use special weaponry and a few "unexpected combat abilities" to battle Hitler's evil.

Check the game's official site for more info. Said Adam Novickas, U.S. director of marketing at Ubisoft:

"The Brothers in Arms franchise has been renowned for its gritty direction that has dropped players into the middle of World War II. With Brothers in Arms Furious 4, Gearbox brings the action to a whole new level filled with unexpected twists and over-the-top battles that are sure to please new players and fans alike."

Out of Ubisoft, I'm super interested in Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed Revelations. Both look great. I always like the open-endedness of the Far Cry games, and 3 looks super similar to the first one with the tropical jungle and all, which I like.

BiA Furious 4 is a pretty blantant rip off of Inglorious Bastards. No interest here in playing it based off the trailer. Kinda want to go back and watch the movie though.

Ubisoft was wholly unimpressive unfortunately. Too many Kinect casual games. Did really like AC:R though. Looked impressive even if it does seem like they are moving further away from historical realism and more toward fantastical things.

Gearbox is on a role with FPS games. They've touched upon every area with them! RPG with Boarderlands, military with BiA and golden age with DNF.

Great stuff.

I haven't played a Far Cry, any good? Can you sneak as listed for the 3rd?

hah, on the G4 thing she's just standing up and they look like a bag of cottage cheese. That's okay I'd still hit it.

It seems the PS3 is in trouble meme is catching at G4. Again I gotta tell these journalist yes losing PSN for a few weeks sucks but unlike their console of choice we still got to play our system while Xbots had to send theirs away.

It seems the anti-PS3 folks are desperate to use anything to crack Sony and the PS3 over the head with. If it's not that internal clock from last year now it's d-bags hacking PSN.

It's about games people.

After watching some of the E3 conference on G4 last night, I have to agree.

It was as if the PSN was still down.

Have I told you, the definition of "insanity?"

It's watching the Far Cry 3 (having never been into the series) material and not being interested.

And I have to say that even though shooter's don't stand too high on my scale of priority games, I'm totally interested.

I loved FarCry 2 & put in over 58 hours on it, so this one's going to be a "Must buy".

Also interested in BIA's too.

YyyyyyyyyyYyYYyessss!
Far Cry 3 was my first open word game on the ps3 that I *truly* enjoyed.
It looked really good and it is the closest to an illusion of playing in a living open world I've experienced so far.

Also, the size of it, with the long driving distances, were really, really cool. It's what most have complained about regarding the game but I sincerely hope they have not done anything with that in FC3, it's an important reason why it felt so "real" to play the game.

Just please please with sugar on top, this time around *PLEASE* include storyline coop. To fumble around in FarCry along with a buddy, cooperating in taking down the defense of some bad guys castle would be a dream come true.

I was impressed by Farcry 3, but for some reason the people I follow on Twitter were not as impressed. Its definetly a game I'll keep my eye on though.

I have never played a single entry in either title, so my enthusiasm is at the meh level. There are far too many games coming out for me to even become interested in them right now. Maybe one day.
