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.'"

14w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared a pure gameplay PS4 video today spotlighting Alienation on PlayStation 4 below.


To quote: On a personal level at least, one of the most pleasing reveals in our Gamescom press briefing last week was a first glimpse at Alienation, the new game from [Register or Login to view links] creator Housemarque.

As a huge fan of classic arcade gameplay, it's great to see the studio back on the scene so quickly after the phenomenal [Register or Login to view links].

The launch trailer was predictably splendid, but it also raised plenty of questions. Questions that I wanted answered! So I tracked down Housemarque's Mikael Haveri after the show in search of a few answers. Read on to find out a little more about what the brilliant Finnish team has in store.

Sony on Facing the Challenge in Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation 4

"It's an important point in the game," Thomasz says as I face the first of the sword-wielding brutes blocking my path. "Learning more about both realms guides the player towards...
