God bless you PAX — not only have you given us an amazing look at Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, but now you've given us this 15 minute gameplay demo of Far Cry 3. If you ever had worries regarding how open Far Cry 3 would be in comparison to its predecessors, this is the video you need to watch.
I think there was an element of concern about Far Cry 3, especially since one of the earlier gameplay trailers seems to show an Uncharted-esque, linear escape from a burning building. Of course, there's nothing particularly wrong with that kind of thing — but in a Far Cry game? Where you expect something a little more emergent? Some Far Cry fans I know — and I'm thinking of ex-Kotaku Australia Editor David Wildgoose specifically — were a little bit worried.
Good to see that Ubisoft is still committed to retaining that broad scope.
