Have Far Cry 4 questions? Ubisoft have got you covered with the new 101 video.
Far Cry 3 was an amazing game. Traversing the stunning tropical world of Rook Island, hunting animals and taking down militias…it was quite something. Based on our brief time with Far Cry 4, it’s more of the same: and that’s a very good thing.
It has begun. The traditional Ubisoft PR assault has started over, and this time it’s concentrated on Assassin’s Creed Unity. By now you likely know that the game’s set during the French Revolution, features 4 player co-op and a huge …

If you’ve been on Twitter this morning, you’ll have seen that there’s a lot of controversy surrounding Assassin’s Creed Unity, the latest open-world title from Ubisoft. The issue is that the game doesn’t feature any female assassins, but the rest of the gaming media have unhelpfully put a misleading spin on the story (and Ubisoft’s mixed messaging doesn’t exactly help). Here’s why Ubisoft aren’t sexist, and why it makes perfect sense for AC Unity to only have male assassins.
Ubisoft is entering E3 with supreme confidence: and rightly so. New IP Watch Dogs has been a huge success, and with new versions of Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry planned for this fall they’re sure to have a very merry Christmas. But this year’s E3 is an opportunity for them to show that they can break the mold: that they can do more than remake the same open world game with slightly different window dressing. Will we see true innovation from them this year, or will we see the first glimpse of their franchises going stale? Here’s what we’re expecting.

Just in case you thought Watch_Dogs and Assassin’s Creed Unity weren’t enough, Ubisoft have just announced Far Cry 4. It takes the usual Ubisoft open-world approach and applies it to a perilous Himalayan region, Kyrat, where a self-appointed king rules. Presumably, it’ll be your job to take him out.
