Far Cry 3 trailer shows off drug enhancements as players fight for survival on their own
Far Cry 3 is coming this September, and with Q2 just around the corner a new trailer has emerged. At over two minutes in length, the trailer shows a solid preview of the game.
The trailer begins by showing the signature jungle environment the franchise is known for, looking as good as ever, with the player entering a greenhouse. The player then meets a scientist, who seems to be growing various types of drugs and offers the player “the red ones” to try, injecting the player with the drug. Immediately after, the trailer shows images flashing up in very quick succession of images from the environment.
The trailer is then voiced, saying “If you want to survive on this island, you’re going to need more than that knife.” We then see the player shooting enemies with a rifle of some sort, as well as silently taking down enemies and dragging them away, with an image of dead refugees shown inbetween.
We then see more flashing images of crocodiles and mushrooms, with the player’s character picking and eating the mushrooms. The player’s world becomes saturated with bright colours and buildings start to move in weird directions. The voice over then returns saying “How remarkable it must be to see the world through your eyes.”
We then see some more combat, with players able to assassinate enemies from behind and throw knives at another in quick succession. The character then points a gun at a pilot’s head, telling him to take off while numerous enemies are shooting at the the helicopter. We see the character in person as he pushes people over a cliff edge. However, the players could be playing as the character who is pushed into water as the camera then goes into first person.
Lost Expeditions Edition
Pre-ordering the game also gets players the Lost Expeditions Edition, who has 2 additional minutes and 40 minutes of gameplay. The missions are called Forgotten Experiment and Ignition in the Deep, and also includes a Type 10 Japanese World War II Flare Gun.
