Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It is the sequel to 2008’s Far Cry 2. The game was released on December 4th, 2012 for North America. Far Cry 3 is set on a tropical island found somewhere at the intersection of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. After a vacation goes awry, player character Jason Brody has to save his kidnapped friends and escape from the islands and their unhinged inhabitants.
Far Cry 3 uses the Dunia Engine 2 game engine with Havok physics. The graphics are excellent and the game really pushes the limits of what one can expect from mainstream graphics cards. We set game title to 8x MSAA Anti-Aliasing and ultra quality settings.
Benchmark Results: The NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan was found to be 39% faster than the ASUS GeForce GTX 680 Top Edition video card, but was 24% slower than the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 on our single panel setup at 2560×1600. Far Cry 3 looks amazing with the image quality cranked up like this, but if you are playing at 2560×1600 you need a serious video card to handle the workload as you can see from our test results.
