Far Cry 3’s multiplayer revolves around it’s battle cry system, in which players gain XP and perks for working as part of a close-knit team. You also have the option to revive players, which will also gain you extra points and help you come across as a lovely chap or chapette. As such, it’s probably one of the few online console shooters where team work really does decide the victor.

Far Cry 3 is out now in the EU, it’s in stores tomorrow – December 4th – in the US
