Kicking off Ubisoft's E3 2012 press briefing today, a new batch of Far Cry 3 footage showed the game playing up its edgier aspects -- beginning with a naked woman, continuing to a scene where the most discernible word was "fuck" repeated a bunch of times, and finishing with tigers that the player could use like explosive barrels: freeing them to attack enemies, lighting everything on fire, and then killing the tigers after.

For an abbreviated version of that footage, check out the game's latest trailer:

Ubisoft announces ZombiU exclusively for Wii U
