Far Cry 4: Vehicles, Riding Elephants, Co-op & More!

Updated on July 15, 2014

Far Cry 4 The Beautiful Open World Of Kyrat

The next upcoming Far Cry game will take place in the fictional region known as Kyrat. The previous Far Cry took place on the sunny, tropical, beach environments called the Rook Islands. Kyrat will be a much colder type of environment that will have huge monumental white mountain peaks, lakes, fields, and the land will be enveloped in various sprawling forests. The large white mountain peaks will resemble something like Mount Everest.

Far Cry 4 is not abandoning it's formula, it's still going to be the huge, vast, open world, first-person-shooter game that many gamer's loved about Far Cry 3. You will be able to explore the massive landscape of Kyrat inhabited with animals, bad guys, vehicles, and all sorts of destructive weaponry that you will have at your disposal. This time, however, there will be new elements fused into Far Cry 4 to build upon what Far Cry 3 already established so fantastically!

Vehicles in Kyrat

Vehicles will be a mainstay in Far Cry 4 and will be the primary way of traveling (besides on foot & wingsuits) throughout the vast world of Kyrat. Besides driving them, players will be able to cut the brakes on them, place C4 on a vehicle, and send it hurdling down a hill to blow up enemies! This was not something you could do in Far Cry 3. Another thing players will now be able to do is shoot their weapon while simultaneously driving. That will make for some interesting combat scenarios not seen before! And better yet, players will have the ability to jump from vehicle to vehicle in action packed road chases!

To make the game feel even more adventurous, a grappling hook can be utilized in the game, which will allow players to climb up and around various rock formations in Kyrat. The wingsuit (used briefly in Far Cry 3) makes a return, but you will be able to use it earlier on this time.

Elephants and Outposts

Just like in Far Cry 3, outposts make a return in Far Cry 4. It's the players choice on how to take over outposts. They can go in guns blazing, take a stealthy approach, or use more unconventional approaches; like slapping C4 onto an elephant and send them charging in a spectacular display. And yes, you will be able to ride elephants in the game! These massive creatures can be mounted.

Outposts will be a major part of the game. It's ultimately up to the player on which ones to attack first or leave alone to come back to later.

Looting animals and bad guys corpses will also be a returning feature in Far Cry 4. Some animals in the game will be territorial and will attack you when you are nearby them. Other types of animals may flee when you go near them (just like some animals from Far Cry 3).

CO-OP System In Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 will be co-op. What makes it interesting is that even if you do not own the game, you can download an app on PlayStation plus, which contains the open world map. Of course it will not contain the single player mission content. Players will need full-game for that.

Although the game has not released yet, the game will likely be more difficult when playing in cooperatively. Most likely enemies will have more health, will be more intellgient, and there may be more of them. Something along those lines...

Far Cry 4 is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Kiev. The game will be available for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS3, and PC. Graphics will of course be enhanced on new systems.

      Am I the only one that is thought the better move would be to make a full release of Blood Dragon, rather than milk the "Rambo on a tropical island" trope? I say this as a HUGE fan of the FC series and not a troll.
