E3 2012: Ubisoft reveals gameplay, announces co-op in ‘Far Cry 3.’


During the Ubisoft press conference at E3, audiences got an extended look at gameplay footage from Far Cry 3, which featured the game’s protagonist being seduced by a mysterious woman, then running and gunning his way through waves of enemies before being ambushed by Vaas, the game’s chief villain. Ubisoft also revealed that the game will not take place on one island, as originally rumored, but will sprawl an entire archipelago of smaller islands, all of which are fully open to exploration. Check out the live gameplay demo, courtesy of IGN.


Ubisoft also saved a surprise for the Sony press conference, revealing that Far Cry 3 will include a 4-player co-op campaign in addition to the single-player game. Check it out.
