We recently received our first good look at Far Cry 3 since E3 with a gripping cinematic that shed some light on the protagonist and his motivations for waging a guerrilla war on a hostile island far from home. But that was last week, and now thanks to a Russian YouTube account we have the opportunity to feast our eyes on what looks to be five minutes of gameplay footage from the upcoming shooter.

Other than the gunplay and explosions we’ve come to expect from the series, the video features something a tad more unusual. If you’ve been following the game or have played its predecessors you’re probably familiar with the recurring theme the descent into the dark corners of the human mind, but Far Cry 3 looks to take things to a whole new level with hallucinogens of all things.

Is it just me or for a moment there did that look more like Alice in Wonderland than the next iteration on Ubisoft’s gritty shooter franchise? I’m just hoping that the increased emphasis on scripting and story that we’ve seen from these recent videos doesn’t take away from the emergent gameplay that made Far Cry 2 one of my favorite games of the generation.
