We've seen quite a bit of the narrative-driven singleplayer component of Ubisoft's upcoming island adventure Far Cry 3 now, but today it seems that the veil has been lifted off the game's competitive multiplayer component. Unfortunately Ubisoft have not released any official multiplayer trailers yet, however the good folk over at VG247 appear to have landed some hands-on access with a detailed write-up on the game's competitive particulars and a narrated video demonstrating one of the game's core multiplayer modes, Domination. While the mode itself is quite common in the genre, there are a few different ways in which Ubisoft are trying to make this one stand out from the crowd.
Team support points grant access to powerful offensive weapons such as psyche gas, which can be unleashed on a handful of the opposing team, causing them to see every other player as a black-silhouetted demon of indeterminate team assignment.

Each round is bookended by an optional map tutorial, voiced by star-antagonist Vaas, and an interactive cut-scene in which the best performing player of the winning team is offered bragging rights over their opposite number on the losing side, opting either to beat them to death or free them.
Watch the embed below for a look a the multiplayer game in action and some new multiplayer screenshots can be found here on our Far Cry 3 game page.

Far Cry 3 is due on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 6th 2012.

Word is this is a new DLC pack for CoD, Pirates and Color.

They would get points for pirates but they are the scummy modern version that suck in all ways possible. Hardly surprised Ubisoft f***ed up this opportunity.

Only 3 Kill streaks awesome, too many kill streaks ruin multiplayer gameplay for me

Can't shoot through every object like you can in cod makes cover a available option

It's awesome how they did kill cam and Ending game option

No stupid Cod Jump,prone, rabbit action hopefully.

Reminds me of Call Of Duty 4:Modern Warfare (THE BEST COD IN THE SERIES)

Then what do you want?

i hope they stay focused on the single player side of things because that is looking good. this however is looking really s***, maybe the narrators boring script reading voice didn't help and he fail at humor.

Watched the video... looks like a clone copy of modern warefare and all the COD s*** going around these days...

This is a Far Cry from what I know, cause all I know, is I want...

I'll probably give MP a go, but I fear all these 'features' (battle-cry, barrel-bombs, detailed kill-cam, end-of-map-cutscenes) are going to be just gimmicks that will actually get very irritating.

Single play will prolly be fun. Multi just looks too boring.

The lighting was pretty damned impressive. I did notice a lack of high dynamic range at work when going from a darker indoor environment to a lighter outside. Outside should have looked a lot brighter from the inside. But the movement of the characters and just the general eye candy looked better than any game on the market to date, forget ID Tech they getting old fast. But then again, you never really know until you try it yourself.

single player ftw, dont see much of this going on for long unless its like fc1
Posted 10:42pm 07/4/12
Wow, and I was looking forward to Farcry.
Posted 12:00pm 09/4/12

Yeah, I hate kill cam. It's good for finding hackers I suppose but if you're like me and die all the time, you spend the entire game sitting there watching the freaken kill cams.

uhg, I just watched the video.
