Far Cry 3 is the upcoming sequel to the 2008 video game Far Cry 2.The sequel is currently in the pre-alpha stages of development. Far Cry 3 takes place on a tropical island found somewhere at the intersection of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. However, Patrick Redding, a Ubisoft story designer, mentioned that an Antarctic setting is a possibility for future games. The main goal of the game is to escape from the islands (as there will be more than one, mentioned by Dan Hay) and its crazed inhabitants.

The game is developed by Ubisoft Montreal in conjunction with Ubisoft Massive and Ubisoft Shanghai, like the second game and unlike the first game which was developed by Crytek, the developer famous for being the maker of the Crysis series.
On June 6, 2011, Ubisoft showcased the demo gameplay of Far Cry 3 in its E3 2011 conference. It was revealed that the player has the ability to shoot enemies behind objects in crouch mode without moving his head up but with free hands. The demo also revealed an overhauled stealth mechanic as well as a possible leveling system based on experience points. The player will also have the ability to perform “takedown” abilities by performing melee attacks from above or in crouch mode. The game’s narrative director, Jason Vandenberghe, has said that the story mode map will be around ten times larger than its previous installments, indicating that it is still an open world sandbox game in which player chooses when and how they want to complete missions.
