Far Cry 4: 10 Minutes of Shangri-La
A new trailer released for Far Cry 4 by Ubisoft offers a quick glimpse into three areas that players will be able to visit throughout the game.
The first is Kyrat, a wild and untamed region within the Himalayas. The second location takes players high above on top of the Himalayas, an area which the locals have dubbed as the ‘death zone’. Finally the third is the legendary city of Shangri-La.
The trailer also offers a glimpse at some of the gameplay elements and mechanics. For instance in the beginning you can see the player flying through using a wingsuit and then later piloting a gyrocopter. The animals showcased in the trailer also look highly majestic and incredibly detailed.
Assassinations or the “Death From Above” skill from Far Cry 3 looks to be back. The trailer also reveals that players will have to watch out for avalanches as well.
Finally the city of Shangri-La looks to have an almost drug-induced experience. In the video the player is accompanied by a white tiger who is also wearing a saddle. It’s possible that players can choose to ride this beast or walk on foot.
The trailer below is an uncut 10-minute footage of Sangri-La taken at Gamescom. You can watch it to get a taste of things to come.
Far Cry 4 is one of the most anticipated games this year and is scheduled to release on November 18 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
