Far Cry 4 gets another trailer full of beauty and death

farcry4title

We’re just a little over a month away from the release of Far Cry 4, and the reliably omnipresent Ubisoft hype machine has just cranked out another trailer for the game.  Set to a haunting cover of I Will Survive, the video is two minutes of some of the most beautiful and/or violent gameplay footage you’ll ever see.  Read on to check it out for yourself.

There’s been no shortage of Far Cry 4 trailers, with each successive video revealing more and more of the game’s stunning visuals and varied gameplay.  They’ve also not shied away from showing off the game’s sometime brutal violence, and this latest trailer is no exception.  Can you survive Kuryat, the trailer asks.  And by the looks of things, your chances aren’t so great.  Beasts of the two and four legged variety are at equal risk of dying painful, bloody deaths in Far Cary 4.  And call me a hypocrite, but personally, I take no pleasure in seeing animals machine gunned to death, even if they’re polygon based.  Still, the graphical wizardry on display in the game is hard to resist.  The Himalayas have never looked better, and seem like the perfect setting for some jaw dropping action set pieces.  The scenes of outrunning an avalanche on snowmobile, then jumping it off a cliff and transitioning to a glide suit look particularly impressive.  And it’s not like you have to shoot an elephant with an RPG.  You just… have that option.  If you want.  You sick bastard.  Check out the trailer below.

Poor imaginary tiger made of sand. I hope it didn’t suffer. Far Cry 4 releases for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 18th in North America and Europe, and two days later in Australia.

Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
