Far Cry 3 Multiplayer No Vehicles- Bad Decision?

It appears the developers of Far Cry 3 have decided the multiplayer gameplay will not include vehicles although they are available in the campaign and the map editor. It appears vehicles were left out of multiplayer because the developers deemed them "hostile to teamwork." There has been an outpouring of response to this decision on the Ubisoft forums to include a survey. The game is getting great reviews and looks very promising but will this decision have a negative impact on multiplayer especially as we start to see some of the community maps being developed? It would seem there could be a middle ground where a limited amount of vehicles were available with a respawn delay but for now it looks like no multiplayer vehicles. Only time will tell if this was the right decision...what do you think? (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yes, but single player is good from what I hear. So go enough.

Yes, i agree, it's a bad decision i know but i don't really care that much since i'm a singleplayer-only guy, and the singleplayer is awesome, but i do understand how that might annoy some people.

Far Cry 3? Bad decision!

I think the game will still be great from what I can see and read but this seems to be a hot topic in the forums. It also restricts the map makers on the size of the maps they can make because you obviously wouldn't want things to far apart w/o vehicles present.

"It also restricts the map makers on the size of the maps they can make because you obviously wouldn't want things to far apart w/o vehicles present."

THAT'S why most fans are ticked off, it's common logic. Why didn't they think of something like that when they decided to take them out.

Vehicles make online games exciting, it's why I would choose Halo over most FPS these days, because the vehicles are great.

That is the million dollar question. They could have set the limit of vehicles and controlled the spawn time interval so it didn't get out of control. Maybe they will listen to the feedback and come out with a patch?

Exactly, they can just have a different mode with vehicles, it wouldn't affect any existing playlists. I heard there's only 4 playlists anywayy so why not throw in a big map playlist with vehicles.

They can't just take out an appealing feature for the sake of "teamwork", i'm sure there's many ways to use teamwork even with vehicles.

No more race maps D:

I personally don't care for vehicles. They should have added mounts though...Like lions, or bears or sharks or giant turtles.

Mind blown.
Holy s***

Hostile to teamwork? I would have used a vehicle for a diversion or transporting my team. It opens up more strategy.

Hehe, what was that map on FC2 with the buggy, like a refinery or something?
I recall I had a few epic chokepoint battles on that map, sniping the buggy driver etc.
taquito  +   640d ago
very, very few games do mp vehicles right, bf2, bf2142, bf3, halo are the best imo
ScytheX3  +   640d ago
wow, havent read the article but if the title is true, thats yet another blow to upcoming games, TR cant swim and now no vehicles in mp for FC3. =(

Tired of MP anyway. We need more unique and compelling single player games out there now and this game, according to the reviews, is one of them.

I'm still enjoying MP however I agree that the single player is getting great reviews...looking foward to both!

dont give a poop about multiplayer

Why not this.
Ranked mode: Ubisoft's "team work" multiplayer.
Free play/ unranked mode: vehicles allowed.

Just to confirm for people

You can make maps with vehicles , a.i , animals but only for privet matches. If you add either of these things you will not be able to use them for online match-making.

would it be smart 2 play this game b4 playing the first 2 r is this a new story line im new 2 this series
Nunchez  +   640d ago
Nope you don't need to play the previous two I'm pretty sure.
aliengmr  +   640d ago
HA.

Night and day. I'm still not sure FC2 was even really meant to be a sequel to Far Cry, but it was pretty good so I didn't care.
Nunchez  +   640d ago
Far Cry was never about MP anyway.The single player part is going to beautiful I know it.

off topic
GrumpyVeteran  +   640d ago
Well ... if it's available in the map maker then I guess custom maps will fill the vehicle void? \

EDIT: Ok so I read that it won't work online in MP if you add vehicles, so Ubi should really allow vehicles in custom maps, even if they don't add them in the official default maps.

i think it is a mistake. vehicles add much more variety.
MikeViv  +   633d ago
It doesn't matter if you need it For team play… leave it out of ranked matches for all I care, just include them and ai in map editing and map sharing. It's not farcry without vehicles, and your dissapointing, I would say 99.9% of all of your fans. Bad call Ubisoft
