Today Ubisoft's open-world shooter Far Cry 3 arrived throughout Europe and Australia. If you're not in either of those territories, you can watch the new launch trailer as a consolation prize.

Far Cry 3 takes place on the tropical Rook Islands. A group of tourists travels there for vacation and are attacked by pirates. Jason Brody escapes and sets out to rescue his friends.

The single-player campaign is only part of the complete package, though. Competitive multiplayer modes and a four-player co-op campaign are also included. Ubisoft has also thrown in a map editor so you can make your own fun.

Early reviews for the game have been very strong, with the Metacritic scores hovering around 90. The open-world setting, story and gameplay variety seem to be the biggest points of praise. Reactions to the multiplayer are a bit less enthusiastic, thoguh.

FC3 will arrive in the UK tomorrow. The US will receive it on December 4th.
