Far Cry 4 tells the story of Ajay Ghale, a young man returning to the country of his birth in the Himalayas to fulfill his mother’s last wish – to return to her homeland and scatter her ashes there. Ajay finds himself entangled in his family’s sttuggle in a rebellion against a self-appointed king called Pagan Min, and he must make choices to steer the Rebellion and The Golden Path towards the liberation of Kyrat.
• From leopards, rhinos, black eagles, and vicious honey badgers, Kyrat is home to abundant wildlife. As you embark on your hunt for resources, know that something may be hunting you…
• Scout enemy territory from above in the all-new gyrocopter and then plummet back to earth in your wing suit. Climb aboard the back of a six-ton elephant and unleash its raw power on your enemies.
• Choose the right weapon for the job, no matter how insane or unpredictable that job might be. With a diverse arsenal, you’ll be prepared for anything.
CO-OP: BRING A FRIEND!
As not every journey should be taken alone, Far Cry 4 allows for a second player to drop in and drop out at any point, re-imagining the cooperative experience in the true spirit of Far Cry for the next generation. You’ll now be able to discover and explore the living open world of Kyrat together!
A trip to Kyrat wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the highest peaks of the Himalayas! Throughout the game, you will come across a series of missions located at the peaks of snowy mountains. The Himalayan missions will push you to extremes: encounter avalanches, ride snowmobiles and fight for each breath as you live the effects of high altitude! The wingsuit might be your only chance at survival…
Kyrat is also a beautiful land deeply rooted in its rich mythology. Shangri-Là is a fabled place that is part of that folklore and has been sought after by mortals in the hopes of finding enlightenment. Presented as a parallel and esoteric universe, Shangri-Là is a place where you will transcend into the limitations of your own mind and go to a place where legends live. You’ll encounter a completely different set of mythical enemies with unexpected and surprising behaviors. You will have an ally, a noble white tiger, the protector of Shangri-Là. The tiger comes to your defense when provoked or can be sent to attack nearby enemies. The Shangri-Là bow, with the exclusive ability to momentary slow time, will also be available while players unlock skills within the main skill tree.
