A new trailer for psychedelic open-world first-person shooter Far Cry 3 shows off its lush tropical setting of the Rook Islands.

Narrated by ex-CIA agent Huntley, the trailer depicts scenic terrain that "houses a thousand years of secrets," "hundreds of exotic creatures" and a tiger on bison attack at 1:59 that puts Tokyo Jungle to shame.

Not seen in this trailer is shark-punching, which will make a welcome return to this game after Batman whet our appetites for it in Arkham City last autumn.

We took a look at Far Cry 3 at E3 where Fred Dutton called in "one of the oddest, most idiosyncratic AAA blockbusters of the current console generation" in his preview.

Far Cry is due on 4th December on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
