  • News New Far Cry 5 Trailer Reacquaints us With Cult Leader Joseph Seed

  • Rumour GameStop Lists Far Cry 5 as a 2017 Release


    Rumours originating from GameStop are always a little shady so take this one with a grain of salt, but a listing for a Far Cry 5 has appeared on the retailer's website. The post comes with a release date of 26th November, which puts the title's launch on a Sunday, another nail in the coffin of this rumour. Despite the lack of plausibility,...

    Review Far Cry 4

    Take a walk on the wild side

    Far Cry 3 managed to blend a near perfect mix of open world and first-person shooter, taking players to the darker side of a Pacific paradise, where many of the inhabitants were the definition of insane. For its sequel, there’s a definite feeling that Ubisoft took the view 'if it’s not broken, don’t fix it', so Far...

  • Round Up Far Cry 4 PS4 Reviews Scale the Highest Mountains

    Ghale of a time

    With the fallout caused by Assassin’s Creed Unity still very much fresh in everyone’s memory, there’s a little extra pressure on Far Cry 4 to not fall foul to the horrible flaws that plagued Arno Dorian’s inaugural adventure. Fortunately, that doesn’t appear to be the case, as Ubisoft’s second holiday sandbox has scored a...

  • News Sorry Ubisoft, But This Is the Worst Unboxing Ever

    Taking the unboxing out of unboxing

    Ubisoft, when you label your video as an unboxing, please understand that it comes with a set of standards attached. It’s a bit like the PlayStation TV – people thought that they’d be able to watch Netflix on that thing, and were understandably irritated when they couldn’t. So, while this Far Cry 4 Kyrat...


  • Gamescom 2014 Far Cry 4 Still Looks Stunning on PS4

    Wish you were here

    The majority of Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference this week hinged on new and original ideas, but there were a few known quantities throughout the media briefing, too. One of those was Far Cry 4, which popped up as part of a quick cameo – honestly, most likely due to contractual obligations between Ubisoft and the...

  • News This Is What the Folks Behind Far Cry 4 Call Work

    Green eyed monster

    Making games is not easy. In addition to the excruciatingly long hours, technical challenges, and budget-based pressures, you also have to deal with idiotic online forum posters tossing obscenities at your title when given the opportunity. For the folks behind Far Cry 4, however, things aren’t all bad, as key members of the team...



  • News You'll Play as This Trendy Man in PS4 Shooter Far Cry 4

  • E3 2014 Far Cry 4 Unleashes An Utterly Chaotic PS4 Gameplay Trailer

  • Rumour You'll Be Riding Elephants in the Next Far Cry Game on PS4

    Howdah like that?

    Open world games always seem to have the same traversal options. The most common is a car, but planes, hang gliders, and superpowers are also repeat offenders. Fortunately, the unannounced Far Cry 4 is aiming to change things up, by allowing you to ride elephants through the Himalayas. Oh, and it’s all purportedly happening on...
