Far Cry 3 will take 15-20 hours to play through to completion if you stick to the story, but longer if you explore, reveals lead designer Jamie Keen.
great to hear, I'm sick of having short singleplayer experiences these days
Agreed I've pretty much stopped buying games that are singleplayer only less than 10 hours long. I really hope the AI is up to scratch and that it is actually possible to create stealth options.
As long as it's epic like Half Life and not a bunch of gopher missions like FarCry 2 then it should be really good. More Devs need to make longer and better SP games........i don't always wanna play Online!!!
It's becoming the norm these days. A new shooter comes out and you beat it in less than 6 hours...then you wonder where all the $60 you spent on it just went.
As long as it has that crazy guy from the E3 demo for most of it, im in!
I cant wait for this game! Farcry 2 is one of my favorite games of all time, despite the dodgy and overly aggressive AI. I still play that game all the time to this day.. it's one of my old reliables that I always turn to when I want to play something with a real lone wolf tactical feel. I love how non-linear the world and missions are. I wish they would make more FPS games with that comlpetely open-ended structure. And at the time it came out, I think Farcry 2 was possibly the best looking game on console for at least a year or so, thanks to the Dunia engine, which I hear Farcry 3 is running on an updated version of. It even says right on the back of the box "play it your way." So true.
sweet, just picked up far cry 2 and it's amazing, so far cry 3 will be a definite buy for me.
Its amazing to begin with but once you get about 5-10 hours in, you realise how derivative the gameplay is. Then it starts feeling like a chore driving everywhere and you realise how bad the shooting mechanics are.
yeah I heard the bad part was that after 10 hours or so you really do drive miles just to get to a mission :p but I like the graphics and gameplay.
Yes the shooting mechanics are a bit of a pain, and the AI, death animations could be better. But not once was I bored of the gameplay in fact, according to the in-game journal i have invested 37 hours worth of playtime into the game. I loved the driving part of the game, but the guradposts spwan could definitely use some twitching in the next game.
this is a 2012 title right?
good, because i just barely got enough for bf3,resistance 3, mw3,uncharted 3 explorer edition and mgs collection.
I hope there's loads of wild animals that I could hunt whilest I'm roaming around. Far cry 2 was cool but there just wasn't enough wildlife to hunt.
That worked pretty well with Red Dead Redemption but you had a purpose for doing so. l don't think anyone would need to hunt down wild animals on an island that he/she seeks to get off, unless you mean that you just want to do it for fun :p
He needs sustenance, it'd be cool hunting/foraging for food, setting traps and all kinds of cool shit lol.
awsome! i didnt buy farcry 1 and 2.will i still be able to undertand the story?
Far Cry 1 and 2 weren't connected story-wise, and I bet Far Cry 3 will be unrelated to the first two.
hope it has true pc support with dx 11 and steam.
Campaign will be the best yet. I hope they add other modes in multiplayer and just improve the controls a bit. Wouldn't mind also using a new map editor...
Great to hear. I am now for certain going to buy this when it comes out. Although I've not played a Far Cry before, I think I've heard enough to know that I would enjoy it. Plus, I want to support developers that don't cheat gamers by giving them an eight hour campaign. Now I'm pretty excited to try this game.
