Far Cry 3 cinematic trailer reveals September release

The new cinematic trailer for Far Cry 3 has arrived which focuses on a tense and tragic tale of three vacationing friends. Reminiscent of thrillers like Hostel and Turistas (minus some gore and torture), and featuring a hand-held documentary-style presentation, the CG video sets up the upcoming FPS's narrative.

It's a pretty compelling bit of storytelling. It even features the mohawked psychopath from the game's E3 2011 demo.

The end of the trailer also reveals that Far Cry 3 is scheduled for a September 7 release in the UK on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. A North American release date has yet to be confirmed, but is likely to be close.
