  • News Is Classic Far Cry 3 Villain Vaas Teasing His Return?

    "My spirit animal"

    The Far Cry franchise doesn't exactly do memorable moments or characters. It's more about exploring the lush open worlds and taking advantage of the freedom bestowed upon you, but one of the few villains the series has managed to create a bit of nostalgia around is Vaas from Far Cry 3. “Did I ever tell you the definition of...

  • News UK Sales Charts: Far Cry 3 Finishes 2012 on a High

    Leading from the front

    Far Cry 3 couldn’t quite displace Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 in the penultimate UK sales chart of the year – but ongoing retailer promotions have propelled it to the summit of the final countdown of 2012. It was a huge week for Ubisoft in general, with both Assassin’s Creed III and Just Dance 4

  • News Far Cry 3's Dynamic World Looks Pretty Impressive

    Fun and games

    Far Cry 3 may not have had the most compelling of pre-release campaigns, but this brand new trailer tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the open world game.

  • News This Far Cry 3 Trailer Is Absolutely Off Its Rocker

    We're all mad here

    Far Cry 3 has taught us never to take a vacation on a remote tropical island. Sure you might get to bask in the glow of the sunshine, explore the dense untouched foliage, and ride jet-skis across the calm blue ocean – but you just never know who you’re going to bump into. We’re not taking the risk.

  • News Far Cry 3 Engages in a Little Monkey Business

    Avoid the trailer

    US mega-retailer GameStop has released an alarmingly unfunny trailer to promote its exclusive pre-order bonuses for Far Cry 3.

  • News New Far Cry 3 Trailer Introduces Amazing Armed Scotsman

    "Ack no"

    We’re sure Ubisoft would rather we talked about the actual features of Far Cry 3’s co-op mode in this article, but we’re much more interested in the Scottish character. The pantomime pot-shot is one of the four playable protagonists in the team-based multiplayer component, alongside a moustachioed gent who’s been taking style advice...

    Rooftop runner

    Despite receiving a positive critical reception at E3 earlier in the year, we still haven’t seen much of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation for PlayStation Vita.

  • News Far Cry 3 Bottles the Madness Until 4th December

    Holding it in

The title had originally been scheduled for release in early September, but now has an additional three months in the oven. Those of you in the UK will get to play the game a few days early, when the title arrives overseas on 30th November...

  • News Ubisoft Releases Twisted Far Cry 3 Teaser Trailer

    Trippy

    You should know the drill by now: no publisher is going to release a full trailer for its latest blockbuster on the eve of E3. Instead you’re getting to get short teasers and snippets of the kind of content you can expect to see next week. This Far Cry 3 teaser trailer is no different – it spends more of its time showing off press quotes...

  • News Ubisoft Reveals Far Cry 3's Insane Edition

    Does it live up to the name?

    2K's amazing Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Edition still holds the crown for most over-the-top special edition, but Ubisoft's going straight to the point by naming Far Cry 3's so-called "Insane Edition". The box contains a 12cm Vaas Wahine bobble head figure, a survival guide to the island and a stack of in-game...

  • News Fresh Far Cry 3 Details Focus on Tactical Freedom

    Hallucinations too
