Also noticeably tardy is Far Cry 3 which is due imminently for PC as well. Ubisoft's response to UK fans is this: buy it from Uplay, "our retail partners or other digital distributors."

No, sorry, there'll be no dedicated server support for Far Cry 3's online mayhem. Ubisoft community manager 'MSV-Vextor' let us know via their official discussion forums. I'm sure you feel violated.

At the very least you're now depressed. Far Cry 2 also missed out on dedicated server supports, with third-parties eventually running unofficial multiplayer matches.

Ubisoft's latest trailer for Far Cry 3, which last week went gold, puts the focus on all the gameplay features we can look forward to as we blast our way over, under and through multiple islands.

There's pretty dynamic fire, big explosions, savage wildlife, jerk bag enemies, lush environments, tons of weapons, and plenty of surprises. Producer Dan Hay narrates the video.
