So what types of animals can we hunt in the Caribbean?,Can someone post what types of animals we can hunt in the Caribbean.. Just really curious. Sometimes wildlife can really immerse me into the game.

Also.. Do you think they will be bringing back QTE for animals?

These are all the confirmed natives to the area from comments. will update more later.

QTE - Yes

Animals - Whale, Shark, Dolphin, Turtle, Eel.

Those are just guesses, not sure if any have been confirmed other than looking at trailers.

Not exactly many land animals are there? makes me worried how they are going to make the jungles immersive. and from what i heard unfortunately QTE will be making a return from the shark fight description we got.

We will be able to free aim pistols this time around but if we are attacked, I'm sure there will be QTE's otherwise it won't look very realistic unfortunately. The one thing I hope they improve are the variety of QTE's for each animal. For example in AC3, we saw the same animation for every wolf we killed. They could have 2 or 3 animations for the wolf and then a few more for the elf, etc. I also hope we have the option to kill animals with more than just the hidden blade when we pounce from a tree.

As for animals, Tapir, Jaguars, and crocodiles are all native to the area. Wild pigs, Monkeys, Manatees, snakes, Sea Turtles, Whales, dolphin, sharks (hammerheads, tiger sharks, bull sharks), sting rays, Marlin, swordfish, etc

As long as they don't keep changing the buttons, QTEs are the bane of gaming and even more frustrating when on keyboard :P

^^^Yeah changing up the buttons on the qte's would be nice. Also taking away the little cutscene every time and just allow us to press a button or series of buttons to dodge then give us the choice to press the attack button to execute, shoot with our pistol, or run away.

But then again, it's not like we are dealing with wolves, elks, and bears again so I'm not really too concerned

Best would be to avoid QTE all together and i said not changing the buttons everytime for every encounter :P

Especially looking forward to hunting the tourists...

If QTEs come back (and I expect them too) at least I hope they make sense. So that counter-button is counter and attack-button is attack etc. Do them like little mini-games so you have to observe the animal and attack/defend at the right time.

YES! That's a sensible idea.

I'm pretty sure whaling is the new hunting... I don't think Edward is going to be an experienced hunter/tracker/skinner like Connor was. Besides, there isn't one huge frontier-type area, it's all just smaller jungles and islands. I'm sure they can find enough stuff to make it feel complete and immersive in those smaller, more controlled areas.

I hope they bring in some cool new features for the hunting. Animals can sniff you out, fight each other while encountering an ocelot hunting a tapir etc. I hope we can put that blowpipe to use.

We'll need to hunt specific Frogs / Snakes to make our poison darts .......................(blowpipe also doubles as a breathing tube for prolonged submersion in water .....or it did originally )


Really looking forward to the QTE = Eddie vs Sloth ;)

Thanks for the info, didn't know about those features! Frogs are pretty small (and so are snakes), I wonder how that will work and look. I wonder if we can snorkel with the blowpipe also? So we can scout for treasures from the surface before diving in?

I'll be playing Blood and Thunder by Mastodon every time I go whaling. Specially if I see a white whale.

I want Jaguars, but for authenticity, they should only be on the mainland (Florida/Yucatan).

ok..... 0:32 made me cringe, maybe they will add crabs but whenever you get near them they scurry off from the sand to water.

Cool, I wonder how they are going to distinguish all the different types of rays, because there are many, How are we going to hunt these?? Just jump in the water and stab??

Who says we have to hunt these? We don't want Edward becoming the next Steve Irwin. But in all seriousness, you never really mess with the rays in Far Cry 3. They prob will just be there to add to the atmosphere. same with turtles
