Far Cry 4 story trailer makes its debut

Learn more about some of the complex decisions that await hero Ajay Ghale

You are Ajay Ghale, returning to Kyrat, the country of your birth, to fulfil your mother’s dying wish. Upon your arrival, you find yourself in a middle of a civil war between the Golden Path rebellion and the self-proclaimed “King of Kyrat” Pagan Min, who controls this land.

A fish out of water in this beautiful but dangerous land, you become involved in this war that divides Kyrat, and your story turns out to be much more complicated than just fulfilling your mother’s wish. Amita and Sabal, the two leaders of the Golden Path, are part of the new generation of this rebellion, and were the key to bringing it back to a force that can actually make a difference. But in order to win this war you must resolve the stalemate between them, since their views on the future of Kyrat are very different.

Sabal is the traditionalist leader of the Golden Path, who sees value in his heritage, culture, history and legacy and believes that Kyrat needs the stability of traditions to bring peace to its people. He is smart enough to know how to use religion as a political tool, and often seeks moral guidance from the religious texts and teachings of Kyra, Kyrat’s religion.

His views are in direct conflict with Amita’s approach. She is considered the first female to officially join the ranks of the Golden Path, taking up arms, training and fighting alongside the males, marking a shift in traditional roles. She does not want Kyrat to go back to its old ways, and she quickly realized that in order to win this war and rebuild the country, they must establish a firm financial foundation. To this end, she believes in using Kyrat’s thriving drug trade to fund the Golden Path.

In your journey through Kyrat, will you agree with Sabal’s conservative views or will you join up Amita with her more modern methods? Choose wisely, because your decisions will affect the outcome of this war and the future of Kyrat.

You have the big chance to be the first new game… That shows ps3 users what they get…

So give us a ps3 trailer.

It’s very rare that I actually like a shooter, with the Mass Effect series, Borderlands and Far Cry being some of the only ones for me due to their RPG influences, but I was looking forward to this.

I can’t help but feel though, having seen a lot of the videos so far, that this is nothing more than a rather elaborate piece of DLC.

This is Far Cry 3 with nothing more than:
A re-skinned map with more verticality and a new plot.
A few new animals, weapons and abilities
A gyrocopter
Some different multiplayer options.

Sure, that may be good enough for some, but for a new full-price game that you’re hyping to this extent, I expect a sequel to radically improve on what’s gone before. I can understand the idea of “if it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it”, but this is just Far Cry 3 in a different setting. There was more varied content as an add-on to a tried and tested format to be found across the extent of Skyrim’s DLC packs, and I picked all of those up for a tenner!

Far Cry 4 is looking so far like it would have been a massive achievement for some modding group, but a disappointment when coming from Ubisoft. I’ve seen nothing that makes me go “wow, that’s a massive leap forward”.

Disappointing, as I expected more.

Sweet. This and the AC’s should slow down my Destiny addiction for a while :p

At first I was really excited about this game!
But the more I saw from the gameplay demos etc the more this game looks like a re-skinned Far Cry 3…

Apart from the graphics and the helicopter/elephants, what has really changed since its predecessor? I’m talking in gameplay terms here.
What I’ve seen so far:
-Same enemies (classes, animations etc)
-Same meaningless loot (apart from ammo the rest is a space filler, just give me the money)
-Same video camera reconnaissance system (simply looking at enemies from a distance marks them indefinitely)
-Same outpost mechanics (follow black smoke, mark enemies with camera, kill everyone without an alarm)
-Same way to craft equipment (skin animals etc, hell it even looked like its the same equipment!)

And that’s just what I’ve seen so far, without actually playing the game. If you loved everything about Far Cry 3 then this probably won’t be a problem for you. I myself found Far Cry 3′s allure wore off very quickly after assaulting what was esse...

I could be barking up the wrong tree here but it looks like little has been changed with regard to the gameplay this time round. I mean, will the game basically be about the story with everything else thrown in there to make traversing between story points a little bit more difficult?

I think I’ll wait a bit before I commit to this one…
