9w ago - Sony's Tom Wallis revealed details today on how real-life conflict inspired Far Cry 4 for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 platforms.

Set in the fictional Himalayan country of Kyrat, this nation torn apart by war draws heavily from real-world locations to make the game feel authentic.

We caught up with Mark Thompson, narrative director, and Alex Hutchinson, creative director, to find out how visiting Nepal to meet people who actually fought in the civil war helped to inspire the development of Far Cry 4.

"One of the first things we did was to write down a list of different animals to include in the game," Mark told us when we met up with the team at Ubisoft recently in Montreal.

"We also made a list of environment features we wanted. From that we looked at locations where the two would make sense, and we came to the Himalayas. We needed to find somewhere that had a history of conflict - somewhere that could be politically unstable - the kind of place that you would go to that was on the edge of the map. Places that are referred to as 'failed states.'"

9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a video today going hands-on with Far Cry 4 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles below.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] explores two tonal opposites: the icy, high-reaching peaks of the Himalayan mountains, and the warm, mythical memories of Shangri-La.

Ubisoft recently showed off both of these environments - which make up just some of the many areas in its upcoming open-world shooter.

In Far Cry 4, players face the despotic Pagan Min and his violent regime in the fictional region of Kyrat. But each player can make a near endless number of choices along the way, and enlist the help of both weapons and the wild to accomplish his or her goals and topple Min's tyranny.

Far Cry 4′s hero Ajay Ghale - a Kyrat native - travels to Kyrat to spread his mother's ashes. But he's soon swept up in the bloody violence that plagues the country and its people. In the demo I played, Ajay makes his way through one of Min's outposts to kill the area's commander.

This first section takes place amidst Himalayan peaks, with flurries of snow and slivers of rock accenting the crests and ridges. The developers at Ubisoft Montreal...

To quote: Go behind the scenes and learn more about the research that went into building Far Cry 4′s open-world Kyrat for the next-generation. The team travelled to Nepal with VICE to draw inspiration and create authentic Kyrati characters and environments native to the region.

Surprises loom at every corner. You will also visit the Tal Bahari temple, a sacred place whose intensity resonates with the devotion of its people.

Ubisoft Details Far Cry 4 Co-op Modes for PS4 and PlayStation 3

20w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Kim Belair detailed the Far Cry 4 Co-op Modes for PS4 and PlayStation 3 consoles today at E3 2014.

To quote: The open world of Kyrat is an incredible place. Behind the beauty of its mountain peaks and lush valleys, the splendour of its flora and fauna, a civil war is raging.

And on November 18th 2014, Far Cry 4 puts you in the middle of the fight, in a nation where one false step is as likely to land you in an enemy outpost as in the jaws of a hungry tiger.

It's a good thing you don't have to go it alone.





Far Cry 4 features drop-in/drop-out "Guns for Hire" Co-Op, meaning that you and a friend can take on the wilds of Kyrat as a pair, exploring the world, taking down enemies and generally making everything as precise or as chaotic as you choose. Both players get experience, both players get in-game cash, and both players have an awesome time.

Better yet, play the game on PS3 or PS4 and you'll get a set of "Keys to Kyrat". The keys open up Kyrat's borders to any of your PSN friends, inviting them into your open world even if they don't yet have a copy of the game. Capture outposts together, traverse Kyrat and make gains with anybody you know-or everybody you...
