A new trailer for Far Cry 4 has been released, but… it’s not exactly a Far Cry 4 trailer.
For starters, it’s all live-action, which is a bit odd. Slightly odder is that this seems to be a trailer for a tie-in browser thing – the Far Cry 4 Experience – which will unlock rewards in Far Cry 4 itself. It offers four live-action vignettes (with one available now, and the others unlocking weekly) which task the player with making decisions quickly. Each vignette then unfolds in different ways depending on your choices, and this will apparently let the site gauge your personality and give you appropriate rewards.
For instance, the one available now has you get into a fight with some chap in his house, and it primarily relies on you picking which bit of the environment you want to try using as a weapon. It’s… certainly interesting! But very weird.
Have a look at the trailer below, and then wander over to the Far Cry 4 Experience page to give that a try for yourself.
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 about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning 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.
