The new trailer for Far Cry 3 is here, and it does not look too bad at all. The graphics aren't mind-blowing, but they're not crap either. It looks like some Michael Bay-style fun, where you can roam the island just seriously effing things up as you go.

The new trailer shows off a fair amount of new stuff, which I don't really want to spoil. Ah, let's do it anyway. The video is above, so spoiler territory from here on out: we see some cool action set pieces with hang gliders, helicopter trips where a rocket slams into you and takes you down, a fair amount of jet-skiing with sharks swimming around you. It looks luscious, it looks like Far Cry.

We are starting to see some serious limitations of technology here, where bloom is used heavily, as well as low-res textures. Imagine a next-gen Far Cry, with a truly next-gen engine and next-gen tech/console. Oh boy. Far Cry 3 drops on September 7th on multiple platforms.
