Far Cry 3 is on the way, and it's looking spectacular. Featuring super-detailed Crysis-style foliage, a lush tropical island to explore, lots of swearing and some interesting mechanics, such as first-person blind-firing, the game looks potentially very, very good indeed.

The game looks to be as open and free-form as its predecessors, with a large island environment to explore and some realistic first-person interactions with both enemies and the environment -- again, like Crysis.

No word on what platforms we can expect the new game for, or a release date more solid than "2012" -- but keep an eye out for it in the coming months.
