    Interesting scenario/statement if true. Could be a bit touchy since that almost exactly explains the Bundy rancher incident a few years back.

    Yeah, these days a rogue cop going against a "rebel" group, especially with this very scenario having happened, could be a bad decision.

    I don't think Montana has any urban environments...

    Then we'd have another GTA clone. I actually liked the setting of Far Cry 2. If they could do the setting justice it would be a fresh change. Africa in the 1970-80s dealing with decolonization, civil war? Would be interesting. A fictional take on the Selous Scouts would make for an interesting story line. Make the gameplay a mix between Far Cry and STALKER (no zombies, just harder, more gritty and unique locations opposed to repeated outposts and tasks). Could be interesting. Problem is I don't think that kind of a setting will get signed off. Or it will be dumbed down to the point it feels silly.

    Agree with the earlier poster who talks about Ubi games all being cookie cutter affairs with the same underlying mechanics and a lot of a what I call "map trash" (i.e. maps strewn with icons for collectables and bullshit 5 min "quests").

    Would be interesting for sure but I think it would be far too controversial and the SJWs would be up in arms with screams of various "-isms" and "cultural appropriation for profit".

    if the playing as a Montana cop rumors are true I'll most likely be skipping this one...sounds way too generic...at least the Himalayan one had a unique setting with elephants...

    I don't see a problem with the religious angle...there are a shit ton of games depicting Middle Eastern terrorists.

    That said, I'm not really sure how this would translate into a Far Cry title.

    the Far Cry title means nothing now...after jumping around from tropical islands to malaria Africa back to the tropics over to Nepal and even back in time to the prehistoric Stone Age, the Far Cry name just means generic hero out to fight generic bad guys in different locales

    Seems like this could be very, very controversial if true. It does seem pretty compelling at the same time. I suppose we'll find out pretty soon once verified details start getting released.

    i really hope they do something different this time around. I am pretty much burned out on the sameness of the various far cry games.

    There are more trailers out today too, can't find any US links yet.
    Each country/region seems to get a different teaser.

    Interesting. Looks like the leak is at least partially legit. Being at work - I can't see a good quality version of the trailer. Is that video or pre-rendered graphics?

    Earlier leaks mentioned a live action trailer being filmed in Montana. So I guess this is it!

    FIELD TRAILER


    WATER TRAILER


    FOREST TRAILER


    CHURCH TRAILER

    Story-wise, that's fine with me - it's not really a plot that has been explored much outside of horror games. I'm just wondering if they're going to switch it up at all from the standard Far Cry formula.

    Considering you were back in time 10k years - I thought that was kind of cool.
