Ubisoft: Far Cry 3 Is A Definite Upgrade
Far Cry 2 was well-received by critics and gamers alike, but Ubisoft wants to take the next step with Far Cry 3.
In speaking to XG247.com.uk, Ubisoft lead designer Jamie Keen spoke about how the team is seeking to improve the overall experience. He first says the focus will rest on the characters and narrative, which they plan to "push" in the new entry. Then he said they'll be "cherry-picking" the best parts of previous games, and they're addressing any problems gamers noted in the first two installments. Said Keen:
"...rest assured that we’ve listened to what the problems are. We’ve pushed forward on all the different fronts to make sure we’ve addressed those issues that arose and move on from that point as well. We’re lucky to have that platform and that we can pick out the bits that people are saying 'Hey we need to fix this stuff.' Check points being one thing, the driving experience, the fast travel… vehicles are going to be super important part of the game and something we’re really focusing on improving the experience for as well."
Yeah, we remember the driving parts could be iffy but other than that, there wasn't a whole lot wrong with Far Cry 2. We fully expect the developers to deliver an excellent production when the third title arrives; we love FPSs with a fair amount of freedom and good stories!
