Hardcore Gamer: It's definitely a good trailer for those who need to be sold on the fun quotient.
I think it'll be another GOTY candidate at this rate.
Absolutely. Far Cry 3 was my personal Goty of 2012.
Yeah, looks awesome.
My personal GOTY of 2014 unless some game is really going to take me by surprise.
Better than Watch Dogs?
Done with the Ubisoft formula. Far Cry, Assassin's Creed, and Watch Dogs are reskinned versions of the same basic game, and its a one or two-button snorefest of repetition, poor story, poorly optimized engines, and overhyped everything. Unless they make a South Park 2 RPG, I don't think I'll ever buy another Ubisoft game.
"Unless they make a South Park 2 RPG, I don't think I'll ever buy another Ubisoft game." Which would probably be a reskinned version of the same basic game. Also Watch Dogs is the reskin of what? I'm not a huge fan of the AC games but the once I played were still pretty good. And Far Cry 1, 2 and 3 were completely different for being the same franchise. If you want an all out new expirience, better not buy sequels.
What they SHOULD do is make the next South Park set in the generalized Ubisoft world. How awesome would it be to climb City Tower to synchronize the map or hunt and skin Jakovasaurs?
Is that formula included in games like The Rainbow six: Siege, The division and the Crew.
They're all open world games...that's about it.
They all have "towers" of some sort that serve as waypoints/teleports. They all have inane collectibles to find and click on (and not cool like the Tomb Raider ones that told a verbal story), they all have horrible follow quests, FC and WD have abysmal driving, they all have terrible or no true stealth or crouching, they are all soul-less open worlds, devoid of true character. Deus Ex Human Revolution is vastly superior to Watch Dogs. Just Cause 2 and GTA5 are both better in their own ways to Far Cry 3. Dishonored puts Assassin's Creed to shame, whale-powered, dystopian shame.
Far Cry 3 was my GOTY 2012, this will be my GOTY 2014!
Nothing new really. It looks fun as hell, tho!
Is the story standalone or do you have to have played the earlier games?
Standalone. None of the main series FarCry games are joined story-wise, it's always a new protagonist, a new villain and a new part of the world in each game.
How about we see what accolades it gets when it's actually done and released…?
It's happening. You're overhyping the game again. It's going to be a really good game, just Like Assassins Creed, Just like Watch Dogs, and despite this you're all going to complain about Ubisoft overhyping the game when it was YOU who overhyped it! STOP!
