Just so you guys know..

I was at the Ubisoft UK Summer Seaside Spectacular event, which you may see referenced by a few gaming sites, since we got the chance to see the E3 demo (via a guided demo) and speak to Jamie Keen, from the development team.


The whole team are acutly aware of what this game means to the fans..

There are many different points of views over features or on screen pop ups and HUD elements - that have been highlighted by you guys, the community, they are well aware that somethings appeared to have caused concern.

He said to make sure that I tell you all, that the E3 demo, is just that a demo, so some things may change since the game is not yet set in Istone.

So you should not take everything you see in the demo, such as the way the HUD looks or the health system (for example) as the final version - these things can go through many changes, before the team find something that works well, and is liked by the majority..

As these changes happen, new footage and news is expected to be released.

We will soon have a Far Cry 3 Com Dev, Community Developer who works closely with the team and you guys, and he will endeavour to keep the information flowing in both directions, as will I.

The thing to remember is the game is still some way from release, so there may be a few different versions of the same feature, or completely new ones added!

Thanks for your time, and I hope this post helps put some peoples minds at rest http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Thanks Shade - we needed that bit of positive information to ward off anxiety attacks. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

It's nice to know they are well aware that some people are upset, however much I said it in the past...

I'm not promising all of the things WILL change, but they may - What those changes are, needs to be seen..


But as I said, they are mindful of people's comments http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

They are unable to comment on a few things at this time, sorry, but a Com Dev will be in position in time to answer things, when they have firm details.

Just a quick point - you shouldn't really post using two accounts, it's best to use one account..since it can lead to confusion, should we ever need to take enforcement action and accounts need to be one per person.

If you have a preference as to which account you want to continue using - please let me know.

Thanks for your post. But I like the HUD very much, its clean and clear - especially the mini-map looks good and gives tactical oppunities.

The missing healthbar and so on is no prob for me. Is my screen full of blood, I should go into cover. ;-)

btw: If you ask me, I would like to see a FC2 similiar healthsystem in FC3.

I wouldnt worry about it too much. I'm sure Ubisoft realises that the editor was a major feature for Far Cry 2 that actually made multiplayer worthwhile even with the very little it had to offer.

Since Mr_Shade says they are aware of our concerns etc. I'm sure they listened enough to get that message http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif.

Shade, these people are crazy. I see NOTHING wrong with this game as it is.

I can tell you ONE thing that the Devs would do that would DOWNGRADE me to a "RENT IT" would be to not include an upgraded Map Editor. That's like walking backwards.

I think you are miss hearing a lot of people here they seem really excited, but they want to see more or somethings slightly tweaked, for example, I want the exp to be in a corner of the screen instead of the center.

I think almost every fan right know is slightly worried that it may not have an editor though. I think this is with good reason even though Ubi had nothing to do with Crysis 2 we all expected an editor there (at least on PC at launch), but they dropped until much later to me both Crysis and Farcry have the signature of user created content. So I truly hope that the devs of this game know that a map editor is that important to us.

If they don't it's your loss, certainly not mine.

Geeze people give the Devs a break for that editor request is really getting stale. They ( UBI Devs ) read your post.
