The Far Cry 4 wiki last edited by Yummylee on 11/21/14 12:52AM View full history

Overview

Far Cry 4 is the fourth entry in Ubisoft's popular Far Cry series. Like 2, 3, and Blood Dragon before it, Far Cry 4 tells its own unique story with its own unique cast of characters. This time the game play takes place within a jungle of weaponized animals which players will be able to use to help liberate various fortresses.

A unique feature of the PlayStation 4 version is the ability for players to play co-op with other players who don't own the game. The owner of the game will get a select number of "Keys to Kyrat" which when gifted to a friend allows them to play the game unbounded for two hours time. Reportedly, each owner of the game will get 10 of these keys.

Development

Far Cry 4 was announced on May 15th, 2014, complete with its US release for November 18th, 2014. Due to the increased popularity of the series after Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4 continues with its predecessor's more colorful tone and accessible design.

Racism Controversy

The announcement included what was implied to be the boxart for Far Cry 4, which depicted what many assumed to be a white man wearing a pink suit resting his hand on a colored man holding a grenade. The imagery was thusly believed to promote racist overtones -- notably by such video game-focused sites as Kotaku.

Creative director Alex Hutchinson then soon took to Twitter to confirm that the pink suit man is in fact Asian--specifically an invading Chinese crime lord--and is not the player character. It was then eventually confirmed that he is the game's villain, Pagan Min.
