Ubisoft at E3.
'Far Cry 4' showed at both the Ubisoft and Playstation conferences yesterday, wowing with pristine visuals amongst some frigid Himalayas air, predatory elephants and, of course, the co-op. Due Nov. 18, here's the best gameplay they've shown so far:
While the game is coming out for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC, those who purchase for a Playstation console can invite friends into the co-op even if they don't have a copy of the game. As far as exclusive incentives go, that's a good one.
And for the story, here's what Ubisoft has to say:
"Hidden in the towering Himalayas lies a country steeped in tradition and violence. You are Ajay Ghale, returning to the country of your birth, the lush forests and harsh snowcapped summits of Kyrat, to fulfill your mother’s dying wish of spreading her ashes. This striking and unpredictable country offers visitors opportunity and peril. You quickly find yourself caught up in a rebellion to overthrow the oppressive regime of Pagan Min, a man known as much for his sense of style and charisma as his cruelty and calculated brutality. Navigating the treacherous landscape, you find your fate increasingly determined by the choices you make because in Kyrat, every second is a story.
In Far Cry 4, you’ll conquer fortress outposts from the back of a six-ton elephant and take to the skies as you rain down explosives from the seat of your gyrocopter. The vertical landscape of the Himalayas isn’t just a pretty backdrop, but a playground that encourages the player to fight, hunt and explore, grappling up cliffs or launching into the air, plummeting to the valley below in a controlled free fall with your wing suit. You’ll carry with you a truly unique arsenal of weaponry that lets you play your way, whether it’s sniping, sneaking or all-out assault. When all else fails, animals can be your biggest allies or your greatest danger, as Kyrat’s wilderness delivers on the promise of a true open world anecdote factory.
For the first time in any Far Cry game, you’ll be able to hunt, fight and explore in the open world with a friend. With co-op Guns for Hire, you can invite a friend into your world to liberate towers, take over outposts and share in the spoils. Hurk, from the Monkey Business add-on content of Far Cry 3, joins in the fight to take over Kyrat."
