At E3, there weren't very many surprises to speak of. Sure, the PlayStation Vita's pricing was a bit of a shock, and the Wii U's reveal was interesting, but in terms of software, there was a very short list of truly surprising reveals. Both Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 4 were rumored and anticipated. Battlefield 3, Mass Effect 3, Modern Warfare 3, Sonic Generations, and more were known well in advance. Luigi's Mansion 2 and another title from Ubisoft were really the only surprising announcements.
Far Cry 3 was never rumored, or even suggested, as a title Ubisoft would have a complete gameplay demo for. Nevertheless, it was one of the better-looking shooters on hand at the show. Ubisoft released a handful of screenshots at Gamescom this week. Check them out below and then stick with GameRevolution as we'll be meeting with Ubisoft at PAX Prime next week.
