Far Cry 3 Interview - "It's a monster game"

Gamereactor UK's Gillen McAllister caught up with Far Cry 3 multiplayer producer Magnus Jansén and found out exactly what makes it "a monster game."

On the reaction to the co-operative modes:

"I think it's been really good so far . It's something that people have sort of secretly wanted, and it's been missing. We've got big single player campaign, we've got open world single player, and then we had adversarial multiplayer. And then there was this hole and now we've filled it... It's a monster game now, where nothing is missing, and with the map editor we have you can build your own multiplayer maps and it's just even more than people expect."

On how the co-op factors into the game:

"The events of co-op take place about six months before the events of single player and what happens to Jason and his friends. So what happens is that these four characters are working on a seedy cruise ship, they're down on their luck, their lives have hit rock bottom and they're looking for a chance to turn things around. And when Vaas's pirates attack the ship the captain betrays everybody and makes off with the money and sells everybody off as slaves."

"Our four characters seize their chance to go after and go for revenge on the captain, get their money (and some more) so they can sort of turn everything around... Four characters put in this insane where everybody just turns mad and they're trying to keep their sanity, which is not big to begin with because we've got some pretty crazy characters as well. And then they basically come here and try to survive, fight their way across the island and get their money and get some revenge." (E3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm excited for it, but it's just too far away to get excited about it. I know it was only delayed until Dec 4 in the states and late Nov in Europe.......but knowing Ubisoft, it will be delayed until March.

I agree, it was immersive and it also looked really nice but it was soooooooooooooo boring!

i wouldn't say boring. there was a palpable sense of oppression that i think sucked much of the "excitement" out of it for a lot of people, but i thought that helped it seem more extreme. the world was an ugly, brutal, depressing place.
