After a successful showing at E3 that saw Ubisoft® take home more than 100 awards, the company has provided updated release dates for some of its biggest titles being launched during the 2012 holiday season. Along with these new release dates, Ubisoft also is reaffirming its previously communicated financial guidance for 2012-13.
Far Cry® 3 will be released on November 29 in EMEA and on December 4 in the U.S. Far Cry® 3 will be available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, the Sony®PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows® PC.
In Far Cry 3, players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island. In this savage paradise where lawlessness and violence are the only sure thing, players dictate how the story unfolds, from the battles they choose to fight to the allies or enemies they make along the way. As Jason Brody, players will slash, sneak, detonate and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of right and wrong.
“We’re taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience,” said Dan Hay, producer at Ubisoft. “Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players.”
