Gamers will be getting another taste of the Far Cry series at the end of this year with Far Cry 4, which had a pretty dang impressive showing at this year’s E3. Thanks to a gameplay video released by PlayStation Access, we have now been given another glimpse of how insane this game is shaping up to be.
In the video, we get a semi-gameplay commentary about a scenario involving the protagonist and an elephant. Essentially, you are able to mount an elephant and go stomping through the village as you either pick off enemies from the top of your own personal Dumbo or let Dumbo stomp, lift and throw the baddies on its own. Hell yes.
The video is freakin’ nuts, so please check it out below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6I8Tlmr0RM’%5D
Far Cry 4 is releasing for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 18th.
My ticket was already sold on this game, but then they went ahead and added freakin’ elephants to the equation and now I’m beyond ecstatic. My elephant is going to demolish *so many things*…
Ubisoft kicked off it’s E3 press conference with perhaps their biggest game coming this year, Far Cry 4.
This footage was absolutely stunning, showing off the exotic environment and the ruthless villain contained within. Check out the video below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9al_k8e93I’%5D
Far Cry 4 releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 18th.
It was recently revealed that a sequel to the smash hit Far Cry 3 (ingeniously titled Far Cry 4) is coming later this year and is set in the Himalayas, but a pre-order page that appeared online has shed a bit more light.
“Hidden in the majestic Himalayas lies Kyrat, a country steeped in tradition and violence. You are Ajay Ghale. Traveling to Kyrat to fulfill your mother’s dying wish, you find yourself caught up in a civil war to overthrow the oppressive regime of dictator Pagan Min.”
“Explore and navigate this vast open world, where danger and unpredictability lurk around every corner. Here, every decision counts, and every second is a story. Welcome to Kyrat.”
Far Cry 4 is set to be released on last and current generation consoles as well as PC and has a release date of November 18th.
Civil war? Overthrowing of oppressive regime? Crazy and unpredictable environment? I do believe the plot sounds intriguing. Hell, I may even go as far as saying it sounds fascinating. Due to the quality that this series consistently churns out and the fact that the developers are claiming to try and top everything that has come before has me a little giddy.
After many rumors it has now been confirmed that Far Cry 4 will be here November 18th on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
As previously speculated, the game will take place in the Himalayas. Players will be in a wild region called Kyrat, which is under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king.
Executive producer Dan Hay said the following:
“Following the success of Far Cry 3, we wanted to take the franchise to the next level and create a game that will surprise players and exceed fans’ expectations. Given the unique setting, we feel Far Cry 4 will stand out as a top first-person shooter and we’re eager to reveal more about the game in the coming months.”
Those who pre-order Far Cry 4 will receive a limited edition that include’s Hurk’s Redemption, which is a series of 3 single-player missions featuring Hurk from the DLC from Far Cry 3.
If the rumors are true, then it looks like the Far Cry series will be returning in 2015 with Far Cry 4 and will be moving to the Himalayas, according to Eurogamer. It’s reportedly coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Far Cry 4’s setting being in the Himalayas is a notable departure for the series, as all previous installments in the series have taken place on a tropical island. The gameplay is expected to be similar to Far Cry 3’s, though the much harsher setting is sure to bring with it new gameplay mechanics.
