Far Cry is an open-world shooter developed by Ubisoft Montreal. Players will take on the role of Jason Brody who is stranded in an archipelago that has been embroiled in violent conflict for years. The goal of the game will be to rescue Jason’s girlfriend and find a way to get out of the islands while trying to survive from its crazed inhabitants.

Ubisoft has decided not to implement an always-on DRM for Far Cry 3, allowing players to complete the single player story mode offline. The game will, however, require internet connection during set-up in order to complete a one-time activation through UPlay for PC. Just like previous Far Cry titles, Far Cry 3 will also have a sandbox editor and will be available for both PC and console versions.

Far Cry 3 is scheduled to hit the shelves on November 29 for Europe and December 4 for the US.
