Yes...let's look at the similarities.

To uncover more of the map, you climb radio towers. No leap of faith, but you do zip-line down.
During one mission you're more or less required to jump out into the open air counting on luck..
and it's even mentioned as a 'leap of faith'.
The map contains quick-travel points to move closer to an objective.
There are assassination side/mini-quests.
You can buy or unlock better weapons, which you access through a 4-point tools-wheel.
You can hide in the underbrush and not be seen.
You can slide down zip-lines, climb rockwalls, and while not QUITE free-run, not far from it.
You can do a close-combat takedown without being noticed, if not with a HIDDEN blade,and also unlock jump-
takedowns, ledge-takedowns, and other very assassin-like kills.
You have a bow to shoot animals or enemies in a silent manner.
You can kill and skin animals, and pick flowers to craft improved pouches, bags, quivers, and the like.
There is a handbook, similar to the animus database.
The map is filled with chests, called loot boxes, and collectibles, similar to almanac pages and feathers.
You have contact with another person who gives you information about the things
you find, most often with a very notable sarcastic bend...hi, Shaun!

Well there are some elements that both games include, but that does not mean we can call Far Cry 3 "modern world Assassin's Creed". There are some hints to Assassin's Creed, though. Like Abstergo appearing in a Lost Expedition mission. We can say these two games take place in the same "world" and definitely, we can say that there are so many elements in common, but saying "Assassin's Creed in modern world" makes it sound like these two games have a story connection somehow, which is not the case.
