Far Cry 3 To Be 10x As Large As Its Predecessors

Ubisoft have stated that the upcoming title Far Cry 3 will be ten times larger than the previous two titles in the franchise.

While the environment might remain some-what the same, the scale will be much, much larger. The game's narrative director Jason Vandenberghe recently spoke with Edge about Far Cry 3.
“If you look at the vistas and the scale of Far Cry 1 and 2, take that and multiply it by ten."

“We want to take that even further. We’re focusing on taking that scale and making it dense, so that around every corner there’s something to find or see.”

He continued: “That’s a key in open-world experiences. We ask ourselves: if there wasn’t anyone to shoot in the game, could it still be fun?”
While Vandenberghe didn't rule out a "good vs. evil" choices system, he did say that it would be interesting and not your typical morality-based choices.
“I want to present the player with intense situations, and then I don’t even want to watch what you do. That’s not the designer’s business.”
Far Cry 3 is out next year for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
