Far Cry 4 Gold Edition is a 2014 first-person shooter game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the successor to the 2012 video game Far Cry 3, and the fourth main installment in the Far Cry series. The game takes place in Kyrat, a fictional Himalayan country. The main story follows Ajay Ghale, a young Kyrati-American, as he is caught in a civil war involving Kyrat’s Royal Army, controlled by tyrannical king Pagan Min, and a rebel movement called the Golden Path.
Gameplay focuses on combat and exploration; players battle enemy soldiers and dangerous wildlife using a wide array of weapons. The game features many elements found in role-playing games, such as a branching storyline and side quests. The game also features a map editor and both cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes.
Announced in May 2014, development on Far Cry 4 Gold Edition began immediately after the shipment of Assassin’s Creed III in late 2012. The team originally intended to develop a direct sequel to Far Cry 3 that continues 3’s story, but the idea was later scrapped and the team decided to develop a new setting and new story for the game.
Certain aspects of Far Cry 4 Gold Edition were inspired by the Nepalese Civil War, and the costume of the game’s antagonist Pagan Min was inspired by Japanese films Ichi the Killer and Brother. The game’s competitive multiplayer was created by Red Storm Entertainment while the Shangri-La segments in the campaign were handled by Ubisoft Toronto. The game was released for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows in November 2014.
However, some critics disliked the story and found the game too similar to its predecessor. The game was a commercial success, selling seven million copies by the end of 2014, and was the biggest launch in the franchise’s history. Several releases of downloadable content were subsequently published. A successor, Far Cry 5, was released in March 2018.
Gameplay Far Cry 4 Gold Edition
Far Cry 4 Gold Edition is a first-person action-adventure game. Players assume control of Ajay Ghale, a Kyrati-American who is on a quest to spread his deceased mother’s ashes in the fictional country of Kyrat. Ajay may utilize various short and long range firearms, including pistols, revolvers, shotguns, assault rifles, submachine guns, bows, a flamethrower, rocket launchers, grenade launchers, and sniper rifles.
More powerful versions of these weapons become available after considerable progression through the game. Throwable weapons include fragmentation grenades, Molotov cocktails, and throwing knives. The game allows players to take cover to avoid gunfights and to perform melee takedowns from above or up-close. Unlike previous installments in the series, Far Cry 4 Gold Edition gives players the ability to kick objects and the ability to hide the corpses of enemies.
In Far Cry 4 Gold Edition, players have the ability to ride on elephants.
Players can use a variety of methods to approach missions. For instance, players can utilize stealth to evade enemies and complete objectives without being noticed, or they also have the option to assault enemies with firearms and vehicles.
The player-character is equipped with a digital camera, which allows him to mark and highlight all visible enemies, animals, and loots.
Players are also able to ride on elephants, which serve as tank-like offensive weapons. Players can throw bait towards enemies, which attracts nearby wildlife that is hostile to both the player and enemies. Players can also hunt and skin animals.
Players can drive and shoot at the same time, and can enable auto-drive, in which the game’s artificial intelligence takes over the role of controlling the vehicle and guides players to their objectives. Players can also hijack other vehicles while driving. The Buzzer, an aerial, gyrocopter-like vehicle, is introduced in the game, allowing players to gain a tactical advantage from the air.
