This November, you are AJ Ghale, and you’re packing as much heat as a one-man army on elephant-back – which is convenient, because you are one in Far Cry 4.
In anticipation of its release next week, Ubisoft’s released one last trailer for the fourth entry into its Far Cry series. A 101 orientation of sorts, the studio takes you through each and every cranny of Kryat, one explosive jeep at a time.
Leading “The Golden Path” are Amita and Sabal, two revolutionaries hell bent on pushing Kryat “into the 21st century” and out from under the tyrannical grasp of the stylishly vicious Pagan Miin. Together, you set out to liberate the country any way you can: including “borrowing” a variety of transportation from the locals.
Speaking of the self-proclaimed king himself, it’d seem that the dictator in question is rather fond of you – fond enough to keep a rather “Spartan” accommodations for his favorite hero. Naturally, he makes a fine match for the pink-haired femme fatale at his side, Yuma, the equally crazed warden of his ice prison.
From atop mountains and river valleys, the game takes you across the Tibetan countryside gorrilla-style against anyone and everyone. Stealth and bruiser options abound from mortar rounds and bazookas to subtle knives and bow and arrows. Animal hides and local herbs offer a chance for you to live off the land and craft your own items. Last but not least, the metaphysical dimension of Shangri-la awaits to answer your deepest questions and maybe even your fears at the heart of Kryat’s spiritual essence.
Going into battle wouldn’t be fun all by yourself. Luckily the local mercenaries are more than willing to oblige to your cause. Scratch their back and they’ll scratch yours, but not too literally, of course. Resident mystics are also at your disposal to magically summon wildlife to munch on the competition sans the elephants already stampeding on your door.
You’ll find Far Cry 4 available everywhere games are sold this Nov. 18th in North America and the United Kingdom. The game also launches two days later – Nov. 20th – for the rest of Europe and Australia, while the game launches for Japan Jan. 22nd, 2015.
Ubisoft has promised big things for the game as of late and we’ll have to wait to find out. Tell us: Are you picking up Far Cry 4 next week?
