It should come as no surprise that Far Cry 3 is going to have a multiplayer mode. VG24/7 was able to sit down with an early build of the competitive offering, for which they published a few impressions. From what they’re reporting, it looks like it may be pretty good. Team Support Points will act as currency and will allow for a few different perks. Players will be able to drop bombs, buff allies or even employ chemical warfare. Psych gas can also be used to disorient your opponents and make every player appear as a black silhouette without any regard to their team.
Far Cry 3 is attempting to set itself apart from the pack with a few subtle changes. Kill cams will now have a CSI feel to them where you’ll be able to see the weapon and trajectory your opponent used to get the drop on you, and every round ends with a custom cutscene where the top player of the winning round has the option to execute the top player from the losing team. It’s too early to know for sure, but Far Cry 3 is certainly shaping up to be one of the more interesting titles of the year.
