It's kind of odd to see such a huge title launch in December. Typically, all the heavy hitters are out between October and November. That's normal.

But that doesn't give you license to overlook Ubisoft's Far Cry 3 , which is almost guaranteed to be one of the best titles of 2012. And to remind you that even after a ton of great games are on store shelves, there's one more you need to get before Christmas, here's a new trailer.

Here you meet the Savages, Vaas and Buck, who are just a little…tweaked. They've obviously been living in the jungle too long, and are relatively convinced you won't get out alive. After all, nobody does. It's a dog-eat-dog world and in desperate situations, you could be the dog. The video also shows off some totally intense gameplay, so get ready for a roller-coaster ride through a picturesque hell.

Far Cry 3 will be ready on Decembe 4.
