Troy Baker got Far Cry 4 gig by threatening to peel a Ubisoft assistant's face off


Like in that movie, Face/Off
Jul 02
 
Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Metal Gear Solid V, Batman: Arkham Knight) may be the most in-demand video game voice actor, but even he has to audition, as he recounts in this panel footage. He does get to be more free form with...




When Far Cry 4 goes right, it goes so, so right


Style bonus

"Hmm, shotgun's not gonna work for this boat. Damn. Guess I'll have to go down there. Oooh, cargo truck! Let's take care of this real quick... ... Totally meant to do that."




Far Cry 4 somehow gets more dangerous in Valley of the Yetis


Didn't think that was possible
Feb 26
 
If Far Cry 4's jaunt through Kyrat serves as any indication, the Himalayas are an incredibly dangerous place. Whatever isn't trying to maul you is trying to shoot bullets at you. It's like being caught between a rock and a h...




Visit the steep mountains of Far Cry 4 at a steep discount


Plus a few other deals
Feb 13
 
Plane tickets are expensive. If you want to go check out the Himalayas, you're looking at several thousand dollars. "In this economy?!," Steven might scoff. A more affordable route to world tourism is through Ubisoft's rendit...




Ride a dune buggy in Far Cry 4's 'Overrun' DLC


Or just keep on riding on elephants, that's cool too
Feb 10
 
Already tired of everything Far Cry 4 has to offer? You're in luck, because Overrun, the latest batch of content for Far Cry 4, is available today. This is a more multiplayer-focused endeavor, with a brand new PvP mode in whi...




Ubisoft restores some third-party Far Cry 4 keys


Keys were purchased with stolen credit cards
Feb 03
 
Just over a week after Ubisoft deactivated digital copies of Far Cry 4 purchased through various third-party resellers, the publisher has reactivated copies of the game that have been played in some capacity and has permanent...




Ubisoft kills copies of Far Cry 4 sold through third parties (Update)


This sounds like something Pagan Min would do
Jan 26
 
[Update: Marek Zimny of G2A recently got in touch with Destructoid regarding this story. According to his comment, the company is not responsible for "any of these procedures" and is working towards obtaining refunds for affe...




Far Cry 4 'Escape From Durgesh Prison' DLC is out today


This one isn't free
Jan 13
 
In addition to the free Assassin's Creed Unity DLC out today, Far Cry 4 is also getting an add-on. Escape From Durgesh Prison is a timetrial of sorts, where you race the clock to best your friends on leaderboa...




Far Cry 4 inaccessible on Xbox One, even if you already bought it (Update)


The Great Elephant Shortage of 2015
Jan 05
 
[Update: Far Cry 4 has been reinstated on the Xbox One games store, restoring permissions for several users. For those who are still experiencing difficulties, Ubisoft officially recommends a hard reboot of the Xbox One conso...




Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes made in Far Cry 4 is a work of art


Two wonderful things
Jan 05
 
We already knew that Far Cry 4's level editor was an open invitation for masterpieces to be made. That much was evident after this goat butt stabbing video surfaced. But, some people are making more serious playgrounds. One ...




Far Cry 4 almost made me vomit at one point


Dec 08
 
Far Cry 4 is a lot of fun, but it can leave you feeling pretty sick to your stomach at times. I distinctly remember happening on a family of monkeys in the Himalayan foothills. Pulling out my camera, I marveled at their...




I like Far Cry 4's map editor because it leads to goat butt stabbing videos


The bridge, I have to yump it
Nov 20
 
Imagine a scenario where goats take over and rule supreme. Not good-natured, frolic in the meadow, eat your leafy spruge goats. No, purely evil, human-devouring, straight-up refuse to eat your leafy spurge goats. Pretty...




Far Cry 4's alternate ending only takes a half hour to access


Now we can finally shoot some goddamn guns
Nov 17
 
Alternate endings are a fascinating way to put a non-canonical spin on the tales that we know and love. Sometimes it's a silly and light-hearted Pentagon piefight. Others are grim, like Dante taking a bullet to the chest on ...

Uh, more time please?

Hey, it's the first hour of Far Cry 4!


Well. 50 minutes, anyway.
Nov 14
 
Far Cry 4 is a game I've been looking forward to since ages ago -- and now, it's finally something I can play. Poorly. Here you go, watch us flounder. Go on, we're a mess.




Review: Far Cry 4


♪Shangri Feat. La (Everbest remix)♪
Nov 14
 
Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite games of 2012. It didn't stray too far from the normal sandbox conventions set before it, but gallivanting around beautiful island vistas and flying about with wingsuits was pretty damn fun. For some that wasn't enough, though, and for those folks, Far Cry 4 won't be enough either. But for me, it's still pretty damn fun.




Far Cry 4 has more naked boobs, also a lil dick!


Also, cocks
Nov 12
 
Far Cry's new thing seems to be free flowing painted/tribal tits, nipple slips be damned, and those feature prominently in this video. But if you stick around, you'll see that there is also a little, flaccid penis! I never l...




Ubisoft: Far Cry 4: Blood Dragon 2 isn't happening


Maybe Ubisoft has something else up its sleeve, though
Nov 12
 
Don't expect a Blood Dragon spin-off for Far Cry 4, says Ubisoft producer Alex Hutchinson. "No. The answer is no, you won't get another one of those," Hutchinson told IGN Australia. "But hopefully we'll be able to come up with something that surprises you just as much." Pubcast Happy Hour 10: Far Cry 4 Special [IGN via Game Informer]




This Far Cry 4 '101' trailer tells you everything you need to know


A nice rundown of the premise and every enemy
Nov 12
 
This new Far Cry 4 trailer highlights the entire premise in detail (more than the actual start of the game does), and shows you pretty much every major character, weapon, and item in the game. If you're already interest...




Ubisoft's upcoming releases back on Steam (except in the UK)


F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew
Nov 10
 
Last week, Ubisoft pulled its upcoming games--F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew--from Steam. This allowed me to roll with a headline, "Going hard in the Uplaynt," a play on "going hard in the paint" and ...

Going hard in the Uplay-nt
Nov 06
 
Ubisoft's biggest three upcoming releases, F4r Cry, Assassin's Creed Unity, and The Crew have been pulled from Steam, the place where a lot of people buy and play their PC games.  PCGamesN got this statement from Ub...




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.




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...




Here's 26 minutes of Far Cry 4 gameplay with commentary


The man (who sucks) with a golden gun
Oct 14
 
Max and I got a chance to dick around in an almost-finished build of Far Cry 4, but unfortunately Max went home sick with an earache, so here's my playthrough, along with my impressions. And Max's dumb jokes.




Far Cry 4 features a more dynamic and vibrant open world


Beware the Honey Badger
Oct 14
 
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...




Here's 5 particularly weird things in Far Cry 4


Sadly, the C'caine Tiger has been un-stabbed to near-extinction
Oct 14
 
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.




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.




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...




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.




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...




Of course we checked out Far Cry 4's elephant booty physics at PAX


And Bill does his Let's Play voice
Sep 05
 
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.




You aren't at PAX? Let Max Scoville give you the tour


'This is so stupid!'
Aug 31
 
PAX Prime 2014 is winding down, but that doesn't mean those of us at home can't pretend like we are there, stalking Max Scoville as he roams the show floor. I was going to give a detailed play-by-play of the video here, but ...




Meet the Far Cry 4 villain's striking right-hand woman


Yuma looks like one tough customer
Aug 24
 
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 ...




Far Cry 4 directors drew inspiration from Nepalese Civil War


It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Aug 23
 
Although the upcoming Ubisoft FPS is set in the fictional Himalayan country of Kyrat, Far Cry 4's directors conducted extensive research on location in Nepal to both research flora and fauna and to interview those who had fou...




Far Cry 4 devs talk divergent play, seamless co-op


Invite friends who don't own the game
Aug 20
 
Far Cry 4 is all about affording players an open world that allows you to do cool murders in cool ways, like on elephants. This mini developer diary talks about giving players tools to tell their own stories throug...




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 ...




How Far Cry 4 plans on making memorable missions


'Here’s a palette, a brush, and a canvas. Go wild.'
Aug 13
 
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...




Command a tiger that can turn invisible in Far Cry 4


Go on a wild trip
Aug 13
 
Far Cry 3 had some pretty wild moments. Like, remember when Vaas was dancing around on the stripper pole? Good stuff. Far Cry 4 will have some crazy segments as well, but these are a little more grounded to the core of the ga...




Far Cry 4's PlayStation-exclusive free trial experience detailed


Keys to Kyrat
Aug 12
 
PlayStation gamers will be able to invite their friends for a round of cooperative play in Far Cry 4 even if said friends do not own the game. We've known about this for a while, but more specifics have come out of the PlayS...




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 ...




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


No animal sacrifices this time
Jul 31
 
As indicated by part one of the video series chronicling the Far Cry 4 developers' trip to the Himalayan region, they seemingly rushed off to watch an animal sacrifice nearly as soon as their plane touched down. Th...




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...




The Far Cry 4 devs went to Nepal and watched an animal sacrifice


Goat (Sacrifice) Simulator
Jul 24
 
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...




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. 




Far Cry 4 accolades trailer reinforces that elephants are jerks


I still think they're neat
Jul 03
 
Ubisoft put out a new accolades trailer for Far Cry 4 that mentions all the nice things people have said about it so far. It's great that Far Cry 4's perceived so positively, but did Ubisoft have to get its point across...




Here's your debonair new Far Cry 4 protagonist, guys


Pretty fetching, no?
Jun 18
 
Meet Ajay Ghale, your dashing new Far Cry 4 protagonist. Ubisoft has released the very first official image of the guy you're going to potentially spend hours upon hours chasing down and killing dudes with, and he looks like ...




Video: Wreck stuff with elephants in Far Cry 4


More E3 2014 impressions from Max Scoville
Jun 12
 
Here's Max, describing Far Cry 4 in a way that's entirely fitting of Far Cry 4: "When you're talking about a videogame, it's like 'Here are all the different mechanics that they've introduced for this game, it's coming to th...




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. 




Far Cry 4 on PlayStation will allow co-op with friends who don't own the game


Also adds a grappling hook, wingsuit, and gyrocopter
Jun 09
 
Far Cry 4 showed up earlier today at Ubisoft's press conference, but while that appearance was focused on the villain of the story, the showing at Sony's E3 press conference was all about action. The demonstration begins with...
