Far Cry 4 Played At 18,569 Feet Above Sea Level, Sets A World Record

By   /   Nov 7, 2014

Back in July, Ubisoft came up with a contest, offering its lucky winner a chance to play Far Cry 4 at the top of Mount Everest, and according to Gamespot, the winner ‘Cruz’ indeed got to climb the Kala Patthar Mountain, not Mount Everest but very near close to the real thing.

The site reports that on October 11, Cruz played the upcoming shooter for 79 minutes on PlayStation 4 at 18,569 feet above sea level, which totals up to three miles. During his playtime, the temperature went as low as -8.3℃ and the speed of wind was recorded at 40 Kmph.

By playing Far Cry 4 at this height and at this temperature, Cruz has got his name in Guinness Book of World Record, which he would certainly cherish for the rest of his life.

Apart from visiting the infamous mountain, Cruz was also taken to Kathmandu, Khumjung Monastery and Khumbu Glacier.

It worked out really well for the contest’s winner, but if you want to visit the snowy mountains sitting in your home, then you will have to wait for Far Cry 4, which is set to hit the stores on November 18 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

Are you looking forward to the latest entry in the popular franchise?
