The Far Cry Experience is a four episode mockumentary web series created and produced internally by Ubisoft to tie in with the release of the Far Cry 3 game. The series stars Superbad and Kick-Ass actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse as himself. It also stars Michael Mando, the voice and performance capture actor for the game’s character Vaas Montenegro. In its execution, the series is aimed to play with the codes of gaming, transcribing its violence while maintaining a humorous tone. This web series was designed to give fans the opportunity to experience and interact with the Far Cry 3 world in an original and innovative way.
The idea behind the project was not to create the movie adapted from the game, but rather to expand the game experience by offering a different perspective on the Far Cry universe. From the very beginning, Far Cry Experience was thought as a big gift to fans. What would happen if a gamer (represented by Chris) was suddenly immersed in a video game world? How would he react if he was confronted by Vaas, Far Cry 3’s iconic video game villain?
