New Far Cry 3 trailer showcases tribal characters

Ubisoft has released a new trailer for its upcoming first person shooter – Far Cry 3. The new trailer shows some of the characters of the game, much like the previous trailer. But this time, the characters seem less violently bloodthirsty and more willing to co-operate with the player character.


The trailer shows the characters Dennis and Citra, who belong to a tribe based in the tropical island that the game takes place in. Dennis has some words of wisdom for the characters about the denizens of the island, and Citra is set to unleash the characters ‘true power’. What this means in the context of what looks like a semi-realistic game is not clear at the moment, but it seem like it involves tying you up and making you drink something that will probably get you inebriated.

Last month, Ubisoft had released a similar trailer for the characters Budd and Vaas. The trailer, titled the Savages trailer, shows us some characters that seem pretty psychopathic and out after the character’s life.

Looks like he's going to be a major pain in the backside

Far Cry 3 seems to be shaping up to be a great game


Buck’s story begins in Australia, where he joins the armed forces at an early age. His commanders quickly discover his perverse addiction to inflicting pain, and dismiss him. He falls into mercenary work, leading to a contract with Hoyt Volker, the South Pacific’s most notorious drug-runner and slave trader. Hoyt realises that Buck’s ferocious combat skills and unrelenting brutality could be of use. From then on, Buck answers to none else. When Hoyt needs a kill, Buck gets the call.

Vaas, on the other hand, is an unpredictable, psychotic, violent, merciless, coked-up pirate warlord and slave trader who kills purely for entertainment. No one is safe when Vaas is around. Not his friends, and certainly not his enemies.

Far Cry 3 is set to be an open-world game, but forgoes the African setting of its predecessor for a more tropical island setting, much like the first game in the series. The game also seems to have a very open way to deal with things, but then again, that simply means that you get an option to either blow up enemies loudly, or kill them quietly.

Back in September, the company had revealed that it has no plans for a Wii U version of Far Cry 3. This came as a strange decision, as one of the strongest titles for the Wii U is another game by Ubisoft, titled ZombiU. ZombiU, got a trailer during PAX Prime, where Ubisoft showcased some of the gameplay. The video shows the player going through a ruined Buckingham Palace after a zombie outbreak. It shows the player using the Wii U controller for things such as detecting hidden passages, opening briefcases and detecting zombies. The controller will also be used for other stuff such as accessing your backpack and picking locks without pausing the game. This could potentially create more tension while playing, as you’ll be able to see your character frantically picking a lock while a horde of zombies is slowly making their way towards you.
