An Alternate Way to Play the Far Cry 3 E3 Demo

Freedom to tackle any given scenario with multiple approaches is a staple of the Far Cry series, and that’s not changing in Far Cry 3, as this alternate walkthrough of Ubisoft’s E3 presentation demonstrates.

If you don’t remember, the E3 demo showed a small portion of the game in which the protagonist, narrowly escaping death after being thrown off a cliff, has to cross through an enemy encampment to reach a helicopter. In the initial presentation, the player started out stealthy with a few machete kills, before opening fire in the middle of the camp and making a run for the chopper.

This time Ubisoft shows an alternate way to complete the same objective. Instead of going through the middle of the camp, the player finds a sniper rifle, blows up a bridge as a diversion, picks off a few bad guys by surprise until they detect his location, uses a zip line to quickly reach the other side of the camp, and then sneaks out the back, using the river to slip by.
