First official Far Cry 2 trailer

It still looks incredible

The first official trailer for Far Cry 2 has hit the internet, ahead of Ubisoft's press conference tonight, which we hope will shed new light on the shooter.

The trailer is good. And by 'good,' we mean it would be prompting us to re-evaluate our finances and buy a new PC (if it wasn't coming to PS3 and 360).

Astute viewers might notice that a web address for something called Reuben Blog is superimposed near the end of the trailer. Contrary to what you might think, it's not a watermark for the blog we ripped the trailer off, but part of Ubisoft's marketing campaign.

Hit the link above to check out what appears to be the blog of Far Cry 2 protagonist Reuben Oluwagembi. There's bound to be a few juicy nuggets about the back story buried in there.
