  • Far Cry Could Be A Great Horror Game

    … Far Cry 4 can be a very silly game. It's hard to keep a straight face when playing anything with exploding animals launching every which way. But that's not all Far Cry is. Placed in the right hands, the shooter can be downright terrifying. Thanks to the latest game's robust new level editor (particularly on PC), some Far Cry 4 players have…

  • ‘Far Cry’ Comic Proposes Perfect Idea for Sequel

    … Although Far Cry 4 might have been more or less Far Cry 3.5 it still evolved the core concept enough to make it worth recommending. Among other things gameplay was tighter, the narrative was more involved, and the graphics included a beautiful next-gen sheen. One of the things we most appreciated about Far Cry 4 was the way Ubisoft evolved…

  • Guns, Guns & More Guns (And Knives, And Bows)

    … Far Cry 4's guns didn't just fall into the game by accident. Someone had to build them. And one of those people was Ubisoft artist Greg Rassam. In addition to the last few Far Cry games, he's also worked on Ubisoft series like Prince of Persia and Rainbow Six. You can see more of Greg's work at his ArtStation page. To see the larger pics…

  • Ten Things You Should Totally Try In Far Cry 4

    … There are many things to do in Kyrat, lots of things to see. If you're looking to make the most of your time in Far Cry 4, however, we have some suggestions for you.

  • The Beautiful Art Of Far Cry 4

    … One of the reasons Ubisoft's big games look so good is because it's one of the few publishers to maintain its own permanent team of talented artists. And one of their best is Donglu Yu. She's been helping out on both Assassin's Creed and Far Cry for a while now, and this week has been able to share some of her work on Far Cry 4. It is stunning…

  • A Very Brutal Way To Play Far Cry 4

    … Gearbox's (and HAWP's) Anthony Burch has played Far Cry 4 a little differently to you or I. And the way he's played it sounds like a fantastic way to get some more playtime out of it. Over on his No Wrong Way To Play The Game blog, he explains how, having finished the game "properly", he went back and played it (well, clearing outposts, since…

  • One Little Thing I Really Like About Far Cry 4 On PC

    … Far Cry 4's PC version looks nice and runs decently enough (well, depending), but one thing I really like about it is less easy to notice: The game supports on-screen prompts for both Xbox and PS4 controllers. Any controller-based game is going to have to put button-prompts on screen, whether for menu navigation, or QTEs, or whatever. Press…

  • 24 Different Ways To Kill Far Cry 4's Villain

    … After watching this, I'm pretty certain nobody hates Far Cry 4's villain, Pagan Min, more than Cosmic Contrarian. The guy spends nearly seven minutes killing Pagan Min in all sorts of hilarious ways, from overloading him with turtles, to throwing him off cliffs. And then, after Pagan Min is dead, he'll often do a double-tap just to make sure…

  • Watch Someone Fling Far Cry 4's Elephants Into Space

    … While it's ostensibly a game about humans, Far Cry 4's insane and aggressive animals have become the breakout stars of Ubisoft's new shooter. And since this is a Far Cry game, players have been having quite a bit of fun poking and prodding at the beasts. Just how fierce has the "man vs. wild" mindset of Far Cry 4 become? By way of an answer, I…

  • Fixing Far Cry 4's Annoying Intros (On PC)

    … The PC version of Far Cry 4 launches with around 117 unskippable splash screens, subjecting the user to all kinds of ridiculous Far Cry branding (and that of supporting companies). After a while it becomes a hassle, but it's OK, you can get rid of them. As RPS point out, you can just use the same (or similar) workaround you can for other games…

  • Unlike Other Games, Bugs Actually Make Far Cry 4 Better

    … The first time I saw a dancing corpse in Far Cry 4, I stopped dead in my tracks. It was in the middle of a tense firefight at the bottom of one of the radio towers scattered across the chaotically beautiful world of Kyrat. I'd just shot a full round into a soldier trying to start his ATV. I thought he was done for, so I ran past him to take…
