And most of the rest of a tiger too! Yes, it’s Far Cry 3 footage time, in an excitable and heavily stylised trailer that offers snatches of what to expect on this new island other than shooting dudes. Includes a large tribe of angry-lookin’ natives, Indiana Jones-style temples, swearing, flamethrowers, a lady with a chin tattoo that looks like a beard, boats, more swearing and A TIGER.
A TIGER. And you know what big cats in an open world game put me in mind of? Oh yes.
Looks very ambitious, this does, and presumably much grander of budget than poor Boiling Point. Seems to be a bit of a (sweary) Heart of Darkness / Apocalypse Now vibe too, albeit rather less subtle in its ‘but who is really the mad one?’ theme. And all the guns and explosions, of course. I sort of want it to calm down a bit.
