    At least it looks like the did a decent job cloning CoD, which is more than I can say for the last game. Also, the 3D map for designating airstrikes looks slick.

    The lighting looks fantastic :D ! Wonder how it will look on the ps3. Far Cry 2 did have better shadows on the ps3 over 360.
    Do we have any ps3 footage ?

    Not sure, but, according to what's written in the corresponding article:

    http://www.vg247.com/2012/04/04/far-cry-3-brand-new-hd-video-why-multiplays-a-beach/

    the footage does not seem to be from console but from PC played with Xbox 360 controller:

    Very linear and non-interactive :\

    Also very low quality SSAO.

    I like how they put scripted set pieces in farcry, the lack of such element in FC2 literally bored me to death.

    I remember Uncharted having much better animations and voice acting. I'm not sure why they are bothering showing off a terrible version of Uncharted 3. Between this and the Cod rip off MP, they are certainly making a good case to not buy the game. But they have yet to convince me of that.

    So, after some searching around and getting a few conflicting answers, does anyone know quite what engine this is using? Is it a true DUNIA 2 or is DUNIA 2 a heavily modified Cryengine 3?

    Maybe you should watch and listen to the first minute of the following video:

    and then read through the following posts in the following particular order:

    Well, that's encouraging. And I remember that interview now, though I had no idea about DUNIA's origins in CE1's codebase. I wonder if that's the source of the CE3 reports that have been parroted around Far Cry 3 in the last year or so. I mean, yeah, it nearly looks like a modified CE3, but it's cool that it's not. It means they have a powerful engine on their hands better suited to scalability.
