Far Cry 4’s latest trailer is all about the pre-order goodies
Publisher Ubisoft has released a new trailer for the upcoming first-person open-world action/adventure title set in the Himalayas, Far Cry 4. Customers will be upgraded to the limited edition by simply pre-ordering the base game at no extra cost. Doing so will net you three extra bonus missions featuring Hurk – whom you may remember from Far Cry 3 – in addition to giving you access to the ridiculously-powerful harpoon gun – called ‘The Impaler’. Finally, the limited edition also features “more monkeys”, though we’re not yet sure what the extra addition of monkeys results in.
A few days ago, Ubisoft had released another video for Far Cry 4, that one focusing on the game’s many weapons with which players will be able to cause mayhem across its many environments. Players will be able to rain fire on their enemies via mortars, grenade launchers, or machine guns – among many others – in addition to using auto crossbows, and Kukri knives.
Far Cry 4′s story follows Ajay Ghale, an English-speaking Nepalese native who returns to Kyrat (a wild and untamed region of his home country) to scatter his mother’s ashes. Once there, he becomes caught up in a civil war, as the people struggle under the despotic regime of self-appointed king Pagan Min (Troy Baker). Far Cry 4 ensures that the open-world gameplay and story complement each other, unlike its prequel, where the open-world nature of the gameplay was often at odds with the plot, as it allowed the player to perform protracted acts of exploration despite situations in the narrative which were supposedly time-critical. In addition, the writers chose to minimise the amount of voice-over from the player-character to allow gamers to better immerse themselves in the role, and have added Tarantino-like dark humour, in order to address the contrast between the game’s heavy violence and any enjoyment the player will get from experiencing the game.
Far Cry 4 launches on November 18th in North America and Europe, and November 20th in Australia, on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
