We should have official word on February's PlayStation Plus games tomorrow, but as of right now, you can pick up Ubisoft's Far Cry 4 for free - that is, if you purchase a year's subscription to Sony's service. There are a couple of important things to note before you get too excited; this appears to only be available in Europe, and it...

No word on the PS3, though
'Tis that wonderful time of the year where every blockbuster gets repackaged and re-released, and today it's the turn of Far Cry 4. Ubisoft has announced that a Complete Edition of its dictatorial overturning escapade will deploy on the PlayStation 4 in the UK from the 19th June. Bizarrely, there's no word on the...

Not over yeti
Far Cry 4's relatively crazy Valley of the Yeti DLC is out in just a couple of days, and as such, Sony's stuck a six minute walkthrough of the download onto YouTube. A nice introduction to the add-on, the video shows off the opening scenes and what sort of gameplay you can expect. Aside from battling big hairy monsters, you'll also be...

Think of the children

Posting on Twitter, publisher Ubisoft has revealed some shockingly massive numbers. For starters, you lot have killed 6,512,562,667 things, and scored 1,367,205,865 headshots in the process.

And that's the end of that
Like the big box perched under your Christmas tree, Sony's big 12 Deals of Christmas initiative promised so much – only to serve up a slew of, frankly, underwhelming offers. The platform holder has put the lid on things today, announcing that for the next 48 hours, Far Cry 4 will be available for as low as £39.99 on the...

Eye of the tiger
Ever since adding themes as part of PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00, Sony’s furnished the PlayStation Store with a handful of animated backgrounds. Unfortunately, this latest freebie isn’t as exciting as the recent 20th Anniversary giveaway, but is pretty neat if you’re a fan of Ubisoft’s big holiday blockbuster,
Tuesday21st Oct 2014
Ubisoft’s gone and put its Bigfoot in it again. The French firm has announced a Season Pass for its upcoming Himalayan first-person shooter Far Cry 4, which will come with a selection of additional missions and objectives for the most ardent adventurers. Costing a pricey £23.99/$29.99, one of the extra tasks will see you take...

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...
Sunday12th Oct 2014
There's a new Far Cry game on the horizon, which means that Ubisoft is hard at work sending us trailers every other day. We've not posted them all, of course, because we can only listen to so much marketing jargon and dubstep before we permanently reinvent the definition of insanity. But on a lazy - and decidedly slow - Sunday like today,...

Far away, dude
Sony's strategy of bundling the PlayStation 4 with every piece of software under the sun will continue in November, as the platform holder has announced a Far Cry 4 package in Europe. The title will also be available alongside the PlayStation 3, but the platform holder was less eager to reveal a box shot for that particular product...

Far Cry 4 looms large on the horizon, and in an attempt to raise the title's profile, developer Ubisoft recently released this nifty clip on the PlayStation Blog. While there isn't a truckload of new information here, it does give us a much better insight into the game's time-traveling mechanics. As the remarkab

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...

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...
Friday4th Jul 2014
Those of you in the press will be well aware of Ubisoft’s outstanding ability to produce press releases on a frighteningly frequent basis. There’s not a day goes by where we don’t get an email from the company at 17:00PM sharp, including some kind of video, image, or minor announcement. Yesterday was no different, as the firm opted to...

Just your average psychopath
Protagonists often play a big part in new game announcements, but it’s perhaps telling that Ubisoft has opted to wait until after Far Cry 4’s big coming out party to introduce you to Ajay Ghale – the character that you’ll be playing as in the forthcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 first-person shooter...
Tuesday10th Jun 2014
Far Cry 3 was a rather chaotic game at times, and Far Cry 4 looks to settle into an equally ridiculous rhythm with its very first gameplay walkthrough. Shown at Sony's E3 2014 press conference without the accompanying commentary, we get a good look at just some of the trouble you can get yourself into within Ubisoft's upcoming open...
A Vaas improvement
In a press conference absolutely jam-packed with outstanding trailers, Far Cry 4 stood out as one of the most thrilling. Staring the franchise's newest super villain, the clip does a tremendously good job of showing off the tantalising title. At turns terrifying and charming, this eccentric antagonist has us utterly intrigued, and...

All of the colours
With a frighteningly large North American readership, Game Informer magazine gets some of the best cover reveals each and every month. Heading into E3 last year, it unveiled Titanfall, the next first-person shooter from Call of Duty creators Respawn Entertainment. This time around, it’s not breaking news of an unannounced title,...

Get mahout of here
It seems that the days of announcing titles years in advance are long gone, as Ubisoft has just confirmed that Far Cry 4 will release on 18th November in North America and 21st November in Europe. The first-person shooter – which has been rumoured in the past – will release on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, and will...
