Far Cry 4 was released November 18, 2014 by Ubisoft. The game was developed by Ubisoft Montreal.  Far Cry 4 is a conventional first person shooter action game.

Far Cry 4 is an open world action-adventure first-person shooter video game which is the successor to the 2012 video game Far Cry 3, it is the fourth main installment in the Far Cry series.

Hidden in the towering Himalayas lies Kyrat, a country steeped in tradition and violence. You are Ajay Ghale. Traveling to Kyrat to fulfill your mother’s dying wish, you find yourself caught up in a civil war to overthrow the oppressive regime of dictator Pagan Min.

The game features many elements found in a role-playing game, such as a branching storyline. In addition to the game’s campaign, the game features a map editor, a co-operative multiplayer mode and an asymmetrical competitive multiplayer mode which was developed by Red Storm Entertainment.

Far Cry 4 is a first-person action-adventure game, in which players assume control of Ajay Ghale, a Kyrati-American who is on a quest to spread his deceased mother’s ashes in Kyrat. Throughout the game, players can run, leap and crouch, and have the ability to shoot using the firearms provided in the game, such as shotguns, crossbows, sniper rifles, mines, throwing knives, bow and arrows, flamethrowers, and rocket launchers. The game allows players to take behind covers to avoid gunfights, and to perform melee takedowns from above or from up-close.

Unlike previous installments, players have the ability to kick objects, and hide the corpses of enemies. We have noticed more and more games support moving NPC objects.

Players can use a variety of ways to approach missions. They are equipped with a digital camera, which allows them to mark and highlight all the visible enemies, animals and eventually Loot locations. The mission-design allows players to use different approaches and methods to complete objectives and defeat enemies. For instance, they can utilize stealth to evade enemies, and complete objectives without being noticed by hostile enemies.

Players also have the option to assault enemies with firearms and vehicles, and eliminate them aggressively using violence. Players may ride on elephants, which serve as a tank-like, offensive weapon for players. Players can throw bait towards enemies, which would attract nearby wildlife to join the attack. Players can also use bait to hunt and skin animals.

While this game features a coop mode, the core gameplay is single player. Being open world does not lend itself well to coop.
