Ubisoft once again took to the stage during E3 2012, this time to showcase Far Cry 3's four-player co-op, and to announce exclusive DLC for PlayStation 3 users.

Four players took to the stage to demonstrate the new co-op mode, which revolved around completing simple objectives as a team. Nothing original here, just that fans of the series can get together with friends and experience the game together.

More interestingly, Ubisoft confirmed the PS3 will receive exclusive DLC, although no details were given. This is likely to be along the lines of a new mission, weaponry, or multiplayer map.

The four player co-op thing has become quite a hit hasn't it.

Most games these days feature the co-op mode, and it makes it a whole lot better.

I love playing together with a few friends so co-op really is great.

Will the entire campaign be co-op or will there be just a few separate missions?

The video doesn't really convince though.

Yea that really looked silly, doing it any other way would have been better.

Being the stand-out Co-op-hater here, I'm not swayed. Too much goes into Co-Op (or a half-arsed MP) now that used to go into SP. Then again, if it keeps the console kiddies happy....
I don't mind "versus" in games like "MK" and "Street Fighter", even "Far Cry" but my first attempt at Co-op in "Castle Wolfenstein" left me scarred for life:)

@Hero - I echo your pain and misery regarding co-op. The only game that I have played and that made it fun was Left 4 Dead - but that game isn't too much fun as SP so it figures... ;)

Co-op is great or at least it was while it was still a rare sight (it still is for me).
I absolutely love to play together with friends, specially as we don't really meet often IRL.

Perhaps it depends on how much you like PvE vs. PvP.
