‘Far Cry 4’: Not your brother’s peaceful trip to the Himalayas

“Far Cry 4,” set in the fictional Himalayan country of Kyrat, ruled by a despot who’s a psychopath, gives players the same open-world, first-person shooter experience as previous entries in the series. But this time, the power of Xbox One allows for more stunning graphics, and a bigger, more vibrant world than ever before, writes Xbox Wire.

The Ubisoft demo at E3 2014 showed the game’s main character, Ajay, using his grappling hook to traverse gaps in the side of the mountain he climbed, as explosions went off in the distance. Animals even preyed upon one another (like a gigantic raptor making off with a mountain goat).

“Far Cry 4” is due out in November for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. To learn more, head over to Xbox Wire.
