Far Cry 4 fans got their first taste of Ubisoft’s upcoming adventure through the Himalayas, after the publisher released gameplay and trailer footage for the FPS title.
The trailer features the player’s character, Ajay Ghale, returning to to the country of his birth to spread his mother’s ashes upon the summit of Kyrat, along with the games antagonist, Pagan Min, a man “known as much for his sense of style and charisma as his cruelty and calculated brutality”.
“In Far Cry 4, you’ll conquer fortress outposts from the back of a six-ton elephant and take to the skies as you rain down explosives from the seat of your gyrocopter. The vertical landscape of the Himalayas isn’t just a pretty backdrop, but a playground that encourages the player to fight, hunt and explore, grappling up cliffs or launching into the air, plummeting to the valley below in a controlled free fall with your wing suit,” said Ubisoft in a press statement.
The game will also allow you to to explore and fight with a friend, even if they do not have the game – according to Ubisoft.
“Players who purchase Far Cry 4 on PlayStation will get an exclusive set of Keys to Kyrat, allowing them to invite a few of their friends on PlayStation Network to tackle the open world together, even if they don’t yet own the game.”
Far Cry 4 will be available for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC on 18 November 2014.
Below is the Far Cry 4 E3 trailer, and a gameplay walkthrough – showing off the kind of action that players can expect.
