GOOD LORD, ANOTHER FAR CRY 4 TRAILER


Tick tock
Nov 04
Far Cry 4 is just a fortnight away. Just two more weeks. Fourteen long days. 336 interminable hours. 20,160 minutes. 1,209,600 some-odd seconds. 1,209,599 seconds. 1,209,598... Are we there yet? No. Quit asking! And stop teasing your sister or I'm turning this car around. read

Far Cry 4's take on asymmetric multiplayer has elephants, magic, and machine guns


These are the Battles of Kyrat
Oct 31
Far Cry 4 is the latest game to get in on the asymmetric multiplayer craze, something that's seemingly inescapable from in games today. However, this one's a bit more nuanced than the likes of Evolve's "four hunter... read
Beware the Honey Badger
Back in 2012, Far Cry 3 turned out to be a surprise hit for Ubisoft. It became the bestselling title of the series, appearing on many game of the year lists, and also created a rather excellent spin-off title. But with the an... read feature

Sadly, the C'caine Tiger has been un-stabbed to near-extinction
Max was poring through some new Far Cry 4 footage and spotted a few things that he didn't quite understand. Here's his top picks of interesting things he can't explain, because this game isn't out yet and we thought you might want to see some of it because this is a videogame website, you clown. read feature

This is what happens when you harpoon a bear in Far Cry 4


Animals sure are unlucky in Far Cry
Oct 03
Here I was all prepared to say that I didn't feel like I'd be missing much by not pre-ordering Far Cry 4 and then they go and harpoon a bear. It's not fair, damn it. It's just not fair! Pre-orders also come with three exclusive missions featuring Hurk, who I'm only now learning was a character in Far Cry 3, too (in a DLC pack). Huh. He seems ... annoying. That harpoon gun, though. read

Tigers are the most badass weapon in Far Cry 4


Traditional weapons are dumb, tigers are the future
Oct 02
Far Cry 4 has its share of weapons that look fun to use. Machine guns? Sure, they're tried-and-true and will get the job done. Mortars? Maybe a bit of overkill, but at least you don't have to get dirty. Tigers? Wait, wh... read

Far Cry 4's Pagan Min teaches a man to scream for help, not text for help


That's nice of him, considering he doesn't even know his name
Sep 26
Poor Pagan Min. He tries ruling his regime with a positive influence, but all those terrorists are there to just, ahem, "muck" it up. Maybe his tendencies to take hostages and implement electroshock torture aren't viewed by everyone as "positive," but it's tough to argue with such a snazzy dresser. read

This Far Cry 4 trailer is all about the elephants


As it should be
Sep 15
Even when Far Cry 4 was officially nothing more than message-board rumors, I was all about the elephants. It's nice to see Ubisoft give the people want they want, then, by putting out a trailer that's devoted to these animal... read
And Bill does his Let's Play voice
Prior to this video being shot, Max may have taken a double dose of the assorted pills that truckers use to drive 36 consecutive hours. I can't be sure. It wasn't my day to keep track of him. But, the point you should take away from this is how realistic that elephant's ass (probably) looks. With booty physics like that, it's no wonder Far Cry 4 ended up as one of our top games of PAX Prime. read feature

Yuma looks like one tough customer

Far Cry 4 is certainly shaping up to have quite a colorful cast, with the eccentric self-proclaimed king Pagan Min and now his newly-revealed second in command, Yuma. Yuma is a "deadly tactician" and acts as the general ... read

Plenty to see, plenty to play

Ubisoft seemingly takes the same approach to all of its PAX showings -- theater presentations of Assassin's Creed, and playable demos of its other upcoming games. PAX Prime 2014 in Seattle next week is no different, except fo... read

Far Cry 4's take on Shangri-La sure is stunning


The Himalayas look nice, too
Aug 14
As someone who tended to stick with the bow as the weapon of choice in Far Cry 3 -- and especially in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon -- I like the look of the mythical Shangri-La in Far Cry 4. In these levels, you'll fight against ... read

How Far Cry 4 plans on making memorable missions


'Here’s a palette, a brush, and a canvas. Go wild.'

Think back on Far Cry 3. Reflect on all the memorable moments you had with that game. What sticks out the most? The missions or the unscripted stuff that happened in the open world? Chances are you primarily remember the unsc... read
Go on a wild trip

The conclusion to the Far Cry 4 devs' trip to Nepal is exceedingly grim


Surprise! War's pretty terrible
Aug 07
Part one of the video series chronicling the Far Cry 4 developers' trip to Nepal was strange. Part two was more dangerous than anything. The third and final part is just downright depressing. Talking with citizens that ... read

The Far Cry 4 devs toned it down for part two of their Himalayan excursion

Ubisoft is sending someone to Mt. Everest to play Far Cry 4


Think I'll just play it at home, thanks
Jul 24
I want to play Far Cry 4 and, yeah, scaling a mountain like Everest would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip -- but playing Far Cry 4 *on* Mt. Everest? Not for me, sadly. That said, someone out there -- the one lucky person chosen... read
WTF, Ubisoft

Goat (Sacrifice) Simulator

It's not uncommon for developers to travel to far and distant lands to immerse themselves in the culture that they aim to represent in the videogames they're creating. What is uncommon (I imagine) is to watch a goat get sacr... read

Far Cry 4 villain wears that suit as an homage to his mother


So like a Norman Bates thing?
Jul 11
Ubisoft released an interview with Far Cry 4 executive producer Dan Hay that tip-toes around the relationship between the game's striking villain, Pagan Min, and its returned-home-to-spread-his-mother's-ashes protagonist, Ajay Ghale. Lots of maternal stuff going on here. Can't wait for some psychoanalysis.  read

Best part of Far Cry 3? Hunting animals. Or stealth killing entire outposts. Actually -- freeing a caged tiger in an outpost and picking off survivors from a distance. Yeah, that's my favorite. From what we've seen of Far Cr... read

You saw our E3 2014 Game of the Show. It was Metal Gear Solid V. Saved you a click.  Now, it's a good one. In fact, I wrote about why it was our Game of the Show in that very post you just didn't click. But E3 was full o... read feature

I rode an elephant in Far Cry 4 and went on a complete rampage


Semi-auto grenade launchers anyone?
Jun 10
You all saw the gameplay footage of Far Cry 4, right? Well I got to play through the demo myself, specifically focused on taking over the outpost (now referred to as fortresses). We saw how to take it over from the sky at the press conference, but I decided to take things differently by riding a big elephant into battle.  It was glorious.  read
