Ubisoft settles on “Face Your Insanity” tagline for Far Cry 3 according to domain

Far Cry 3: Face Your Insanity

Back in March, a GameFAQs member completed a market research survey for Far Cry 3 box art.  They were also asked their opinion for the tagline “Face your insanity”.

Many of the people who responded in the forum liked the tagline.  One person even replied, “Face your insanity is the perfect tagline for this game.”

Now, it looks like Ubisoft has settled on the tagline “Face Your Insanity” for the upcoming first-person shooter video game.  On May 17, 2012, Ubisoft registered the domain name (Whois).

At the time of this story, the domain name does not resolve to a web page.

Far Cry 3 is expected to be released in September.

Ubisoft registers domain


Ubi-this.  And Ubi-that.  Video game publisher Ubisoft has registered a new domain name this week:

According to Whois records, Ubisoft Entertainment purchased the name on March 29, 2012.

It’s unknown what the future will bring for Ubiloud.  As of right now, the domain name does not resolve to a web page.

In a recent interview with Pocket-lint, Chris Early, head of digital at Ubisoft, said the company will launch a cloud-based storage system that will allow players to save game data across multiple devices such as an iPhone and iPad.

Could Ubiloud be the name of the new cloud-based storage service?

That’s probably a stretch.  But with already owned by someone else, anything is possible, including the name being nothing more than a defensive purchase to prevent others from owning the name.
