Far Cry 3 Released; Patched

Ubisoft announces the release of Far Cry 3, saying the open world sequel is the "highest rated shooter of the year" (though this applies to the Xbox 360 edition). A patch is already available to support the release by updating the game to version 1.02, and this can be found on AtomicGamer, The Patches Scrolls, and Worthplaying. As it dances into stores, here's word on the game:

Today, Ubisoft® announced that Far Cry®3, the open world first person shooter from Ubisoft Montreal and Massive, is now available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Sony PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows® PC.

Far Cry 3 has received critical acclaim by reviewers and is currently the highest rated shooter of the year*. 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.

All editions of Far Cry 3 are now available for purchase on the Uplay Shop, at retail outlets throughout North America, and is also available digitally on the Sony PlayStation®Network.

As with every Uplay enabled game, players on all platforms will be able to earn Uplay Units by completing actions in-game and redeem exclusive rewards with those Units. For the complete list of Far Cry 3 Uplay rewards, please visit: http://www.uplay.com

Far Cry 3 is also the first game to use the new Uplay PC Party System. With the Party System, Windows PC players can create a party by inviting their Uplay friends to team up to take on any multiplayer challenge. With the integrated Uplay Friends interface, they can also find new friends and communicate in-game during the multiplayer session.

In January 2013, the Far Cry 3: High Tides downloadable co-op pack will be made available for free on the Sony PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. This exclusive DLC will contain two new story chapters with four to five missions each and four character skins.

The co-op story is far from over. Hoyt's privateers have ambushed the four survivors and taken them hostage. It's up to you and your friends to escape and underground prison and find a way off this island of insanity.

Far beyond the limits of civilization lies an island, a lawless place ruled by violence and human suffering, where your only escape is through drugs or the muzzle of a gun. This is where you find yourself, stranded in a place that has forgotten right from wrong, a place where you must live by the principles of violence to survive.

I was a fan of FC1 and I believe I was one of the 12 people that actually liked FC2 so to get FC3 was a no-brainer. I've got atleast 6 hours in the game and haven't played but probably 2 main missions and am having a BLAST! I have a poo-poo system and it still seems quite lovely. A nice example is this short retard adventure by yours truly:

I'm driving flat out in a local beater, coming around a corner and there is a fellow 'brother warrior' standing on a bridge... I hit the handbrake to try to miss him but CLEANLY wipe him off the bridge with the back of the car...also as I fly through the wood railing of the bridge and fall into a gulley...upside down. I get out and look at my upside down car as I hear growling behind me....it's a VERY unhappy pack of rabid dogs...Yep they attack, we fight, I kill, VICTORY! Then I realize you can push your car over; do so and jump back in. I gun it up the side of the gully, becoming slightly airbourne as I hear the thunk of something hitting my car....I nailed a pig making my gully exit. I hear the whine of the pig as it lands on the hood of my car and glitches there for a few seconds as I continue down the road. I would like to imagine the local people calling me an "asshole" in they're native tongue as they watch the spectacle from the side of the road... As the pig flies off the hood I look over at the little hula bobble on the dash bouncing around and smile to myself....THIS is MY kind of GAMING!

I was hoping the "thunk" as you drove out of the gully was your brother warrior having finished his parabolic arc and dropping in the back of your car.
