'Far Cry 3' trailer sends Brody into heart of darkness

Jason Brody and his bunch of partymaker buddies think they've found the perfect tropical getaway, but as Far Cry 3's story trailer relates, it's an off-grid archipelago populated by freaks and psychos, pirates, mad scientists, bears, tigers and sharks -- viscious beasts, the lot of them.

Jason Brody and his bunch of partymaker buddies think they've found the perfect tropical getaway, but as Far Cry 3's story trailer relates, it's an off-grid archipelago populated by freaks and psychos, pirates, mad scientists, bears, tigers and sharks -- viscious beasts, the lot of them.



Throwing Brody into a fight for survival and on a mission to rescue his captured friends, Far Cry 3 appears to blend an island playground inspired by the first Far Cry with the unsettling moral ambiguities of Far Cry 2's blood diamond backdrop.

For a combat-based action game, Far Cry 3 releases at an unusual point in this year's calendar, a good few weeks after blockbuster-in-waiting Call of Duty: Black Ops II on November 13.

European and Australian regions get hold of the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 version of Far Cry 3 on November 29 (UK on November 30), with North American retail set for a December 4 release date the following week.
