According to an inside source at Ubisoft Montreal, Far Cry 3 will not be set in Africa. Although the setting has yet to be decided upon, it seems that the team are looking for a new location to set Far Cry 3.
Good. As stunning as the setting in FC2 is, it's time for a change.
Reall? I was pretty happy with FC2...
Totally agreed. Far Cry 2 was lovely, but the location got a bit stale by the end.
I love urban warfare games. Not the warfare itself but in games it is much more up my alley , no pun intended.
The environments in fc2 were much more real to me than crysis etc. Crysis looks amazing, but the afternoon sun glare over an open field in fc2 was just stunning. It's kind of a shame they're not using africa again, but a change is as good as a holiday. It sounds like they haven't started 'developing' the game at all, and that they are just planning, how can they even write the story if they don't know where it's going to be set
...in my PS3 unfortunately. Far Cry 2 was a perfectly wrapped present with a turd in it. A turd that respawns no matter how many times you try to get rid of it.
They should do it on the Bonneville Salt Flats and make the game borin as hell just like the last, i aint gonna fooled in2 buyin another Far Cry game, no siree bob
@1.4: Maybe they have a general theme in mind like "tropical", "desert" or "urban", but they just haven't nailed down the exact location yet.
I really enjoyed FC2. i loved the emersion of the whole game. It felt like a real world and that i could travel over vast and realistic locations. It felt like i could tackle missions anyway i wanted much like in real life.
Africa's such a good continent though...
Back to a tropical island perhaps?
No, I don't think so. I think the whole point of this is to make the franchise somewhere new, which is what I got from FC2. I would love to see it somewhere like China or Siberia.
Wherever it is, to be in keeping with the series, it needs to have that combination of stunning scenery, wildreness and lawlessness. Not a lot of places that have that.
south america would be way better than africa imo
I don't care where the game takes place I just hope they improve the enemy AI. I got tired of enemies simply charging you no matter the situation. It was almost comical as they would drive or run in a straight line to attack the player. The game looked great but the AI was terrible.
AI was poor. I hated the checkpoints where you'd clear it, the drive back 5 mins later and it was over run again and they'd just run or drive at you. Also the pc version with quick saves made the safe houses a complete waste of time.
I pray for Far Cry 2 in Norway, that would be awesome! And them some americans could learn that we don't have polar bears as pets... :D
I would like to see Far Cry 3 set in Australia. I think the out back would be an interesting place. You would have swamps, deserts, city's & lots of other interesting places.
That would be interesting, very good suggestion.
Another day, another FPS game gets announced :(
Why not Europe? In England? LOL Nah or maybe in a cold place, like Alaska or Antarctica?..mmh
Far Cry 2 was one of the very few games I've traded in without completing. Visually stunning, but got old very fast. Ubi should worry more about trying to make the gameplay as enjoyable as the first.
Paris, France should be the next location.. or something like that. And I did the same as bloop, I was very hyped about FC2 in the beginning, the graphics is awesome but the gameplay needs some rework. It was like go to point A, kill this guy, then go ride a jeep again and go to point B, kill this guy. It was too repetitive and the enemies have like some sort of advance radar that can detect you even if you are hiding in the shadows.
id love to see it be based in downtown toronto lol
