Far Cry 2 marked a definite removal from the more standard, linear adventure depicted in the original and we may once again see a significant difference when the third installment arrives.
The second was set in Africa and allowed the player to go just about anywhere at any given time, giving it more of an open-world sandbox feel and catering to those who enjoyed their freedom. But if you were hoping for a direct sequel and a return to that same environment, you might be disappointed: according to IncGamers , an "inside source at Ubisoft Montreal" has said the game will be set somewhere "outside of Africa and will take advantage of a new setting." Said the source:
"We're still in very early development and we have no idea where it's going to be set, but I'm pretty sure that it won't be in Africa."
As of now, things are pretty well up in the air for Far Cry 3 as "nothing has been set in store," so all sorts of new ideas might be implemented into this future series entry. IncGamers believes the game will actually be set in outer space, which would certainly be a big change but that's only a theory. Where would you like to go in Far Cry 3 ? If they decide to keep the freedom and wide-sweeping exploration, the environment and landscape will be crucial to our entertainment, right? Maybe a futuristic underwater world, like Bioshock …that'd be kinda cool.
