Ubi announce bear necessities for Far Cry 5 on PC, inc 4K specs

It's been a long time since Far Cry games were how you gave your PC its fiercest work-out, but hell, old habits. Ubi have just put out system requirements for March's Montana-set Far Cry 5 and they're pretty reasonable, in the main. Basically, if you have at least a GTX 670 or R9 270 you're getting in the door, though if you want to crank…

Protecting video game dogs and the silly lengths I go to

I don’t know how I finished Far Cry 3. Luck and perseverance, I suppose. It’s hard to play when you’d happily take a bullet for a dog, though. The island paradise is full of them, and for some reason they are extremely aggressive. But I refused to harm a hair on their precious little heads.

Beast Master: Cat Cuddling In Far Cry Primal

There's a scene in the new Far Cry Primal [official site] trailer in which the player character instructs his pet owl to eat someone's face. It's amazing how inconsequential the lack of vehicles and rocket launchers seems now that the full extent of the animal-taming can be seen. Feed wild beasts and they can be tamed, which leads to big cat snuggling, guard bears and…

Far Cry Primal Info: Release Date, Screenshots, Trailers

Ubisoft attempted to announce Far Cry Primal [official site] with a tantalising livestream, which was rather spoiled by a brief leak of the game's name and basic details. Now we know more, including proper trailers, screenshots, and a release date... which will see the game land on PC the month after it'll arrive on console.

Far Cry Primal Trailer: Fight Mammoths With Spears

Update: There's now proper trailers and everything, embedded below, or hop to this post for Far Cry Primal's release date, screenshots, trailers and more. Viral marketing isn't entirely going Ubisoft's way lately, but at least having their own promotional rug for the next Far Cry pulled from under them by a loose-lipped IGN Turkey means exciting news rather than quizzical looks. Yep, the next Far…

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

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.

Snow Joke: Far Cry 4 Goes Mountain High In November

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…

Far Cry Classic Is An Updated Version Of The Original

As part of my continuing display of ignorance, I hadn't realised that the upcoming Far Cry The Wild Expedition - a bundle of all the previous Far Cries in one imaginary box - was going to contain something called Far Cry: Classic - a slightly remade version of the original game. Something that's already available for consoles, apparently, but sigh Ubisoft etc. It seems the…

Eight Lasery, Lizardy Mins Of Blood Dragon’s Open World

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, wherefore art thou Blood Dragon? Well - and this is just a hunch - I'm gonna go ahead and say it's because of all the blood dragons. Thing is, our peeks at the neon-drowned shurikensplosion of a game have thus far been confined by story, (somewhat oddly) removing said retro-future laser reptiles from the spotlight.…

Far-Fetched Cry: A Half Hour Of Blood Dragon Footage

Edit - bah, videos removed. If anyone's found another source please say so below. Edit2 - A new source for one of the vids is now in this post, but presumably it won't hang around for long. This half hour of purported footage from Far Cry 3 expandalone Blood Dragon is obviously fake. You can tell by the way the shader polarity is reversed at…

Has Biehn: Far Cry 3 – Blood Dragon Out May 1st

I still can't quite believe that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon exists but as of this weekend, the standalone title not only has a release date, it also has Michael Biehn's voice. Actually, the Xbox Marketplace listing which reveals the May 1st release date doesn't specify 'voice', it says 'a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants, and Michael Biehn…

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Is Totally Bonkers, An Actual Thing

On April 1st, a peculiar thing happened: a game company debuted a seemingly implausible spin-off that wasn't a gigantic, painfully obvious hoax. Now, notice I said "hoax," not "joke." Reason being, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon still seems incredibly, absurdly silly. The advantage it has over its smoke-and-mirrors peers, however, is that it's actually, you know, real. What began with a schlocky (though impressively elaborate) '80s-style…

Cry Harder: Outpost Resets, More Coming To Far Cry 3

Confession time: I never quite finished Far Cry 3. I've put infinity-dozens of hours into it, but I eventually got bored because I downed most of the outposts. As a result, my once-thriving pirate-and-oppression-overrun utopia devolved into a hive of peace and friendly cooperation. Gross, right? So I moved on to other open worlds and left Far Cry 3 stranded on its own little closure-free island,…

Oh Thank Goodness: Far Cry 3’s Interface Patch Is Out

The break's nearly upon us, and the news has already fled into its cozy hibernation hole to avoid the harsh shifts in weather and people caring. So now I'm going to tell you about some patch notes, because they're all that's left in this desolate winter wonderland. Fortunately, Far Cry 3's brought a fairly sizable bounty of improvements back from its latest bug hunt, and…

Perhaps Ignoring Far Cry 3’s Multiplayer Was A Mistake

Far Cry 3 has multiplayer. Or at least, I'm relatively certain it does. I am, you see, somewhat guilty of scampering into single-player's wide open jungles - like a frightened tapir who doesn't want to become a backpack - seconds after start-up. I honestly haven't touched multiplayer in spite of my near-obsessive love for Ubisoft's wild, wild wilderness rumpus, but I now have a strong…

Ubi Ending The Madness, Fixing Far Cry 3’s Pop-Ups

Far Cry 3 has opened its komodo-dragon-like terror maw and consumed the entire RPS staff. We're now naught but moldy bones littering the dimmest corners of its lair, wobbling on excitedly about that time we saved all those turtles from an out-of-control, highly turtle-unfriendly fire we started. But it's definitely not perfect. Obnoxious pop-ups swarm constantly in a ceaseless cycle of useless reminders. John, noble…

Far Cry 3 Servers Down Already: Ubi, This Is A Mess

Update: Ubisoft have tweeted an apology, saying they're working as fast as they can to get the servers back online. So, like many others, I'm very excited to play Far Cry 3. After Jim's review, and many similar elsewhere, I've been dying to play it and finally have the chance. Today is my day off, hooray! And so far I've been treated to a horrible,…

Isles Asunder: Far Cry 3 Map Editor

Do map editors normally have trailers nowadays? Far Cry 3's has one. I know that some trailers have trailers and it's only a matter of time until someone makes a trailer for a logo, so I guess something as functional as a map editor can appear in a video and say 'hello'. The most notable thing about the editor for Ubi's Jimpressing open island shooter…
