Far Cry 3's newest "Island Survival Guide" video plays up the crazier elements of the upcoming first-person shooter, like fixing your own broken thumb and dealing with the game's psychopathic villain.

Far Cry 3's newest "Island Survival Guide" video plays up the crazier elements of the upcoming first-person shooter, like fixing your own broken thumb and dealing with the game's psychopathic villain.

Ex-CIA operative Agent Huntley returns as the narrator to explain that antagonist Vaas Montenegro participates in drug and human trafficking as part of his crime empire on the island on which Far Cry 3 takes place. Huntley also points out Dr. Alec Earnhardt, who will provide you with psychotropic drugs — or, at least, the recipes listing the ingredients you need to harvest in order to synthesize them. In addition, says Huntley, you can take over outposts and use them as bases from which to engage in fast travel.

Far Cry 3 will launch on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on December 4th. Check out our preview from Gamescom, and the first Island Survival Guide video.
