Far Cry 3 producer Dan Hay talks about the optional outposts scattered throughout the island chain. The environment is replete with shark fights, water buffalo hunts, and powder-keg random scenarios. What will you find?
Thank god they won't be like FarCry 2's outposts. What a pain
I didn't mind them too much. At least you had plenty of people to shoot, stab, and burn.
Never mind, apparently I DID mind the outposts and the constantly respawning guards DIDN'T give you any more people to kill. I stand corrected?
yes change your mind to how we think hahahahahahah!
Take it easy. I'm sure people merely disagree with you on not minding them. Fact is, they were poorly implemented. You could seldom drive on the roads because crossing outposts would get your vehicle shot up way too much. Moreover, they offered very little incentive to raid. At best they offered ammo, something that could safely be acquired at hideouts. And re-spawning enemies is ok, but NOT at outposts littering just about every intersection on the damn map.
Outposts were terrible. Games need to empower the player and make actions have consequences. Starting a mission, driving 10 minutes, fight an outpost for 10 minutes, continue with mission, drive back through to fight the same outpost again. Rinse and repeat. Made your actions feel so pointless, and missions became a drag knowing you'd have to deal with an outpost you previously cleansed again.
HOLY JESUS ! I want this game faster !
This is going to be my GOTY.... This game is perfect. Can't wait to see some map editor footage.
Is the map editor restricted to creating multiplayer maps?
It was multi maps only in the last game but you can explore them yourself in a private match and they have only announced it for FC3 , no info yet on it. Off topic, why are people disagreeing with my opinion... jesus guys haha
ok that was much much better than what I was expecting.... stabbing bullsharks in the face = win
Don't tell PETA about this..
I was extremely excited leading up to the release of Far Cry 2 only to be very dissapointed in it. Now im getting extremely excited for Far Cry 3. Please dont dissapoint me again guys, PLEASE :(
Proper hyped for this game!! I'll be giving Crysis 3 a wide birth after finding 1 & 2 boring!
Dammit ... another game looking fantastic for this holiday. Even with all the games that pushed out of 2012 there still are a ton of great games coming. This new wrinkle is a nice surprise for Far Cry 3. Game is shaping up really well.
Shark Fights?! Game instantly has higher likeability. Sharks scary man. Makes me weary of the sea when I go to Crete. Dat shark lvl in Tomb Raider 2... *shudder*
That's going to be a good time..
When will the beta come out?
This close to launch, I doubt we'll see a demo.
it has been delayed in november its not coming in september anymore.
Anyone else not able to finish the second game 'cause of loading bug? Enjoyed otherwise.
@Daver - I know, but that's still too close for a beta.
