Much like the game’s elephants, Ubisoft are blowing their own trumpets with this Far Cry 4 trailer.
Titled “The Press Has Spoken”, it’s… well, I’m sure you’ve guessed. It’s a collection of little snippets of gameplay footage, interspersed with quotes from various press outlets talking about how Far Cry 4 is probably the best game ever.
On the plus side, a lot of those snippets of gameplay footage are new to me. For instance: I don’t recall seeing a tuk-tuk do a wheelie (well, not since the last time I prayed for my life in China) but now I have! There are elephants, and soldiers, and explosions, and all sorts of weapons – from crossbows to RPGs – and… well, it looks rather nice.
Have a look at the trailer below and decide for yourself. As to whether or not it’s actually the best game ever? Well, we’ll find that out when it launches on 18 November.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
