Ubisoft explains Far Cry 3 multiplayer modes in trailer

Ubisoft has been releasing tons of trailers for its upcoming open-world shooter Far Cry 3. The company has now released a trailer that gives an overview of the multiplayer that will be featured in the game.

According to the trailer, the game is set to feature many team-based gameplay features, like the ability to revive team mates, as well as having certain points all over the maps that you have to capture using teamwork. The game will also feature something similar to the scorestreaks from the Call of Duty games in the form of team support weapons.

Everything else in the game's multiplayer looks the same as we've come to expect from modern multiplayer games, like loadouts with unlockable weapons and attachments.

Two game modes shown in the trailer are Firestorm and Transmission game modes. The aim of Firestorm is to set fire to the enemy team's supply nodes at the same time. Transmission mode has you race accross the map to destroy propaganda transmitters. These game modes show how much the Far Cry 3 multiplayer is based on teamwork.

Recently, Ubisoft had released the story trailer for Far Cry 3. In Far Cry 3, you are originally on the island for a fun vacation. Things go sour when you run into some psychopaths who like murdering and torturing for no good reason. It's up to you to get stronger, get better weapons, and find out what's wrong in the island. The game will pit you against humans as well as nature, with everything from psychopathic bandits to hungry tigers wanting to eat you.

Back in October, Ubisoft had said that driving around the island in Far Cry 3 won't be a chore. Lead game designer Jamie Keen told PlayStation Magazine UK that it won’t “become a chore this time”.

“What we wanted to do with this one is we wanted to make driving a fun experience”. Explains Keen, “We wanted it to feel like you can pull a handbrake turn round a corner and when you do it is great and fun to do. You can just launch your vehicle at 70mph off a cliff – it might not do very well – but you can do that stuff.”

Ubisoft had released a trailer for the game that showed some of the characters that you will be meeting in your adventure in the island in the same way that an earlier trailer did, 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.

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.
