Far Cry 4: 5 Amazing Things We Saw At E3

Could Ubisoft top the best entry in the series so far from 2012? Well elephant-rampages and high-speed cliffside chases says yes. Yes they can.

How do you top a game like Far Cry 3? An open world first person shooter the likes of which had never been seen before (well, apart from in previous Far Cry titles), the third in the series was a groundbreaking entry for the genre in terms of its graphics, story, themes, and also the ability to cause all kinds of mayhem with the help of some impressive AI and destructible surroundings. And tigers, lots of tigers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJH9D25c3dY Not that we should ever have doubted Ubisoft, really. We should know better than that by now. Not content with a barnstorming presentation on the opening night of the E3 gaming expo which saw them announcing new entries in the Assassin's Creed, Rainbow Six and Just Dance series (one of these is not like the other), they also revealed just how they're going to top the previous game with Far Cry 4. And we're very much inclined to believe in them once more. Having shown the above six minute trailer which set up the game's story, location and principal villain on the night, the Ubimenschs - as nobody calls them - also premiered a seven minute preview of Far Cry 4's gameplay online that has us very, very excited. From helicopters to avalanches to stampeding elephants, here are five of the most exciting and crucial things we've learned about Far Cry 4 so far. As if we have to wait til November 18 for this! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04z45SOAH5k
