Video: Exploring The New Landscape Of Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4’s just a little over a month away, and it’s set to take a step away from the tropical islands of its predecessor to the foothills of the Himalayas, while losing none of what made Far Cry 3 such a hit in the first place. Having sat played the game for a good few hours, capturing footage along the way, I sat down with Peter to answer all his questions about what’s new, what’s the same, and elephants.

Played and capturing footage of Far Cry 4 for this video occurred on a trip to Paris, with travel and accommodation provided by Ubisoft.



  1. I didn’t realise the co-op was different to FC3, sounds quite good as Peter said.

    One question I was hoping you’d answer is what’s the weather system like? In FC3 it was either glorious sunshine or torrential rain and thunderstorms with nothing much in between. The whole video looked like it was sunny all the time except for on the peaks, but does it change? And do you ever get snow in the lower parts of the valleys, or only on the mountain tops?

    • I dont know about weather, actually. You’re right in that it was clear weather all the time, aside from when I did that mission up on the peak for a little bit. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!

      • I know it’s only a minor detail, but it was just one of those many little things in FC3 that I thought FC2 did better

  2. Great preview guys, well done. Not that I’ve seen more of the game Ive got to be honest I’m a bit disappointed at how similar it is to FC3. Its a shame that the more vertical looking mountain areas are only part of side missions and that the crafting and outpost structure is so similar. That was all good but, you know, more new stuff would’ve been nice. Having said all that, if the story is good then at least we know the gameplay will be solid and by the looks of things the coop will be more integrated than 3, I like the sound of that.

    • They’ll doubtless fold into the main plot on a number of occasions but yeah, you have to do the fast travel to get up there, and my understanding is that they’ll be bespoke mission areas.

  3. Peter: “I’ve been here for five minutes and now I am your leader.”

    Ha! Says the Englishman in Northern Ireland.

    Couldn’t resist. Sorry. :-)

  4. I hope the soundtrack is as good as FC3, there were some really cool moments FC3 gameplay where they brought in music.
