Far Cry 4’s map editor gets its own trailer
Publisher Ubisoft has revealed a new trailer for its recently-released open-world first-person shooter set in the Himalayas, Far Cry 4. This latest video focuses on the game’s map editor, with which players can create whole new levels by adding all sorts of enemy-soldiers, animals, buildings, and terrain. Additionally, the trailer has also revealed gamers will be able to share their creations with the world, a feature which has previously been explained to be unavailable due to financial reasons. “I direct the game but I don’t set budgets or timelines. We always squeeze in as much as we can, but we’re always prioritizing,” said Hutchinson. “We’re going to keep supporting the game so hopefully we can get it done post release. No promises but we will try,” further explained the Director.
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 is already available for purchasing on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
