Far Cry 4: "Interesting Player Stories And A Seamless Experience"
Far Cry 4 is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and rightfully so.
And as creative director Alex Hutchinson said in a recent Red Bull interview, the sequel represents a "significant step forward" when compared to its predecessor:
"Work started almost immediately after Far Cry 3, and I joined a while after that. The idea is always to build on the best and most successful elements from the previous game and integrate new features and ideas to make sure it’s fresh and that the game takes a significant step forward. For me, the most important things are enabling more player agency, building better tools and adding co-op so people can create more interesting player stories, and trying to make a seamless experience."
Development of Far Cry 4 is being handled by multiple internal Ubisoft studios, although Ubisoft Montreal leads the project. The Ubisoft Shanghai team is currently creating "a series of missions set in an all-new environment outside of the game world," which means away from the mountainous terrain of the Himalayas. It'll be interesting to learn more about that.
The upcoming sequel is slated to arrive on November 18.
