- Release Nov 18, 2014
Ubisoft’s latest game in the Far Cry series follows Ajay Ghale, who becomes entangled in a violent rebellion in Kyrat—a plot inspired by the Nepalese Civil War. Ajay joins up with The Golden Path, a rebel group that hopes to unseat the country’s violent king, Pagan Min. A series of Ajay’s decisions throughout the game shape the overall path of the revolution, allowing a number of characters to step into or out of power for a variety of endings.
Far Cry 4 features a co-op multiplayer mode that allows players to invite friends to play in the open-world setting, including friends that don’t own copies of the game. In competitive mode, players fight against magical warriors who can turn invisible and summon beasts to fight alongside them in traditional online multiplayer combat modes.
Far Cry 4 received positive reviews overall, with critics praising the game’s inventiveness over previous entries in the series, and its unpredictable environments.
