Far Cry 4 Trailer Has A Wingsuit Grenade Plane Attack OK

By Graham Smith on September 26th, 2014.

This new Far Cry 4 trailer is nominally designed to re-introduce Pagan Min, the game’s antagonist, but there’s a moment midway through in which the player drives a dirt bike off a cliff in pursuit of a plane, let’s go and wingsuits through the air, and then blows up said plane with a tossed grenade. That’s exactly the sort of action silliness I liked about Far Cry 3, so take a look below.

By Timothy Walker on September 16th, 2014.

In a much anticipated sequel to my kitten’s world exclusive review of Shelter, comes my toy elephant Timothy commentating on the latest Far Cry 4 trailer. Ladies and gentleman, Timothy.

I dunno what a vid e o game is but I like elephants!

Far Cry 4′s Kyrat Has Bad Guys ‘n’ Badgers

By Ben Barrett on August 15th, 2014.

Badgers: like cute land mines

Why did we never think of this before? Attack dogs are SO 2005, it’s all about angry badgers [That's so 2011 -ed.] attempting to aggressively acquire your watch now. At least that’s what I’m taking away from the latest Far Cry 4 trailer, which gives a quick tour of the fictional Himalayan region where the game’s set. Don’t worry, it’s not all cute animals, there’s plenty of knife-stabs, gun-shoots and elephant-tramples to go along with that little guy.

Ubisoft On Far Cry 4′s Story, Box Art, Team Diversity

By Nathan Grayson on July 1st, 2014.

Far Cry 3 was a lot of things, but a narrative tour de force wasn’t exactly one of them. To hear Far Cry 3 writer Jeffrey Yohalem tell it, there were good intentions putting the wind beneath its hang gliders, the komodo (and/or blood) in its dragons, but the end result was rather… misguided. When Far Cry 4 was first announced, it seemed like it might be off to a similarly shaky start with box art that left some feeling uncomfortable, but the E3 game demo ended up telling a different tale.

That said, we still don’t know much about this one is about, so I sat down with Far Cry 4 narrative director┬áMark Thompson to talk premise, plot, controversy, the inherent problems of videogame info hype cycles, and heaps more. Machete your way past the break for the full thing.

Cyberpink – Far Cry 4: Blood Dragon Likely… In Some Form

By Nathan Grayson on June 17th, 2014.

So Far Cry 4 is a thing. It was pretty inevitable, given that Far Cry 3 sold like hotcakes stuffed with pornography. The next question, then, is obvious: will there be another Far Cry: Blood Dragon? Nothing’s set in stone yet, but it sounds quite likely that Far Cry will take another turn for the weird. Just maybe don’t expect another ’80s spoof this time.

Yes All Men: Assassin’s Creed Bro-op Controversy Escalates

By Alec Meer on June 12th, 2014.

I’m afraid this is going to be a long one, because the debate around Assassin’s Creed Unity not inculding any female avatar options in its co-op mode didn’t half snowball overnight. Ubisoft are now backtracking on their initial defence that this was a workload issue, and instead claim it’s a deliberate narrative-based decision – however, this only opens up more questions.

In the meantime, a former Assassin’s Creed animation lead has called foul on the original claims that animating a female character results in an unbearable workload increase, while elsewhere at E3, a Far Cry 4 dev claimed that excessive animation needs are why there are no playable women in that game. Who to believe, eh?

Grapplewatch 2014: Far Cry 4 Gameplay Swings Away

By Alice O'Connor on June 10th, 2014.

I believe that is a honey badger, yes.

Ubisoft’s big fancy E3 stage show last night introduced the game’s kooky villain (so zany!) but while technically in-game footage, this was only the opening cutscene. “Oh gosh bother and drat,” I imagine someone in Ubi’s marketing department said, “we’ve only gone and forgotten to show the game. Fix this!” So here comes a new trailer with seven minutes of gameplay, showing off enraged elephants smashing cars, eagles snatching goats, micro helicopters, another beautiful break-action grenade launcher, a spot of co-op, and yes yes yes, a grappling hook.

Hidden Himalayas: Far Cry 4

By Adam Smith on June 9th, 2014.

Could have picked a shot with some blood or a gun in it but went for the selfie-shot and what is presumably a look at the vacant expression of the player character

Know what Far Cry needs? A villain so kerrazy that he takes a selfie right after he murders a bunch of people. Thankfully, that’s precisely what the series now has in the shape of the mad despot who takes center stage on the box art and rants and raves his way through the debut trailer above. GTA V was the game to popularise the act of inappropriate post-carnage selfies, I believe, and dare we hope that Far Cry 4 will take the art to the next level? Brave new worlds opening up before us.

Snow Joke: Far Cry 4 Goes Mountain High In November

By Alec Meer on May 15th, 2014.

I can no longer separate actual announcements from speculation, gossip and fever dreams, so while I *think* we’ve already heard a bunch of stuff about Far Cry 4 and how it’ll have a snow-bound setting, for the sake of ease I’m going to pretend this is the first thing we’ve ever written about it.

Far Cry 4 is out this Winter, it is indeed set in the Himalayas and it’s got a harpoon gun in it.

UbiLeaks: Far Cry 4 & Assassin’s Creed 5 Revealed

By Craig Pearson on March 21st, 2014.

I am a trusting person, which us why I often gather groups of stranger together and fall backwards into their arms. It’s something to do while my pies cool on my windowsill. But I also live in London, so today I’ve lost three pies and broken two vertebrae. Send help! It hasn’t damaged my trust, though, so I’m going to take Eurogamer at their word that they’re sure that Far Cry 4 is soon to be announced. I don’t think it’s any stretch to assume that it would be coming, but the setting promises mountains and elephants.

And – this just in – there’s a first, rather shiny trailer for the next Assassin’s Creed game, subtitled ‘Unity’ and which appears to be set during the French Revolution.
