E3: Far Cry 3 to feature four-player co-op campaign

Jun 04 // Kyle MacGregor    @DtoidKyle

With its insane cast of characters, impressive visuals, and increased focus on narrative, Far Cry 3 has been shaping up to be a very impressive sequel for Ubisoft Montreal's first-person shooter franchise. Well, that was until the French publisher took the stage during Sony's E3 2012 press conference and revealed the open-world game would be even bigger with the addition of a four-person co-operative campaign.

The Far Cry series already let players approach any given situation from a variety of vantage points with a vast array of weapons and tactics at you disposal. In the past, the decision of whether the tool de jour is a sniper rifle or machete has been left entirely up to you -- something that might be a tad different with this new addition. If the brief on-stage demo Ubisoft showed off was any indication, playing Far Cry 3 with your friends could considerably change the tone of the game. Just hope that the extended stay on the island won't drive them too crazy.
