Yes!! I've been waiting for this game to be announced. Can't wait to play it.
-Foxtrot  +   634d ago
God I hope it has air vehicles in it.

Far Cry 3 was amazing, I honestly can't wait for this

Hurk is back aswell, I hope they have a good explanation of how he ended up in Kyrat. Plus a harpoon gun aswell lol.

Yeah, i enjoyed Far Cry 3 more than i did Far Cry 2, although the story was pretty undermining for me. The world was fun to explore and the gameplay was good too, loved using the bow.

I'm a little disappointed that it's a cross gen title, but im still looking forward to it.
ZodTheRipper  +   634d ago
Far Cry 3 is better than lots of first person shooters in many departments. It was a great game with room for improvement so I'm hoping that they can make it even better. I was just hoping that it will be next gen only so that they don't have to worry about old hardware.
NewMonday  +   634d ago
initially enjoyed Far Cry 3 but it turned excessively repetitive and the story turned juvenile, the more I played the more stupid it became, it was like the worst B movie you could watch.

I don't get why everyone's announcing stuff before E3. This would have been an epic announcement at E3.
Revolver_X_  +   634d ago
I agree with NewMonday on the repetitive part. There just wasnt much to do in the massive world. I hope they add alot more side content.
ramiuk1  +   634d ago
i just hope stealth has been improved more.
loved every minute of farcry 3 though and if ps4 and xbone look as good as FC3 did on my pc i will be more than happy.

It looks like they are capitalizing on the whole VAAS thing from the last game. Psychotic enemy boss makes for good entertainment. :D
AliTheSnake1  +   634d ago
Wow, releasing this fall. Way earlier than I thought. Given the time it was announced.
XxExacutionerxX  +   634d ago
I though Far Cry 3 was going to suck and I completely wrote the game off after buying Hitman. My girlfriend told me to buy the game after seeing the gameplay footage. Wow, Best Title of 2012
RedDeadLB  +   634d ago
The fact that it's a cross-gen title means it will run on PC pretty much the same as FC3. Which is a good thing.
Crazay  +   634d ago
I enjoyed Far Cry 3 - i didn't love it but it was a damn fine game by all accounts. I sure hope they have a new/properly optimized engine for Next Gen systems.

here's hoping that Ubisoft can maintain their launch schedule with this one because the last 2 blockbuster titles have missed their original release. I'm looking at you Watch Dogs and Division.

I can't wait to hear more. Far Cry 3 was my 2012 Game of the Year. Maybe Far Cry 4 will make it high on my best games list this year, too. Either way, I'm very eager to learn more. :D
Pro Racer  +   634d ago
Been a fan since Far Cry 2, which was incredible at the time (as well as being bugopolis). Far Cry 3 improved on a lot of aspects of FC2 and had one of the most memorable villains of modern gaming.

Looking forward to what's in store for us in FC4! It would be amazing if it was built with CryEngine 3!

If it requires UPLAY I will be skipping. I official do not support UPLAY or ORIGIN anymore. Steam is more than enough for me.

Also... X-Gen. (puke)

All Ubisoft games will have UPlay, and I don't think it's going down anytime soon. It would, if it would be a PC exclusive client. But UPlay accounts are also integrated in console games by UBi.

It's their online client and service that connects Ubisoft players throughout all platforms, that has in-game rewards and purchases and keeps players playing their games, and it won't go down for a while.

Deal with it.
Knushwood Butt  +   633d ago
What is UPLAY? I keep seeing Child of Light prompt me to create an account, but no thanks...
LiQuiZoN  +   633d ago
It is an additional service which requires your email so they can leech money from you. Advertising their products and selling your email to their partners. :-P

Point is. It really isn't needed and most could do without it. Ofcourse if you love putting your CC# in everyone's hands then don't complain when one of the 10 under-developed and unwanted services gets hacked. \

PSN I understand. They have a hardware platform.
XBL I understand. They have a hardware platform.
STEAM I understand. They have a software platform. (They were the pioneers, the first)

Ubisoft(UPlay)/EA(Origin) only make/publish games and now they want your information by creating a required service to play their games.

Don't say it is for "Rewards" because that is merely a ploy they added so you would fork over your information, which if far more valuable to them than some imaginary digital rewards which takes an artist a few hours to make.

Cross gen title from Ubisoft. Not again. Expect then 900p on PS4 and 792p on Xbone.
starchild  +   634d ago
Also expect one of the best damn looking games of its time, just like the majority of Ubisoft games. Far Cry 3 is easily one of the best looking games on PC. If Far Cry 4 only runs at 900p or 792p on consoles it's probably because it is a demanding game with a lot of dynamic simulations and amazing graphics.
porkChop  +   634d ago
I'm really hoping they do a Blood Dragon 2 DLC for the game. I loved the feel/sound/look/etc of that game so much.

LOL the PS3 and 360 get a version but no Wii U.

Wasn't the third one on the Wii U and wasn't Ubisoft the publisher that vowed to continue supporting the Wii U after everyone else jumped ship?

My god yess, Far cry 3 was one of the most amazing games i played last gen. Himalayas is a perfect setting, something new and I can only imagine how great it'll look in next-gen.

It would be amazing if they're using the Division's snowdrop engine for this.

Ubi is a huge development company

They listed about 4 studios working on the title concurrently. I doubt they butcher this considering Far Cry 3 was the best game they've put out since Assassin's Creed 2

2 year dev cycle + random reveal + very early fixed release date + last gen consoles = not a good sign!

I really think they're trying hard to milk far cry while they still can cross-gen, like BF4.
ramiuk1  +   634d ago
aye cant wait until last gen gone.
imi think it held alot of games back so far.


the only game that was crap which i knew would be regardless was Ghosts

CoLD FiRE  +   633d ago
Only the main theme was good in Far Cry 3, the rest of the soundtrack was unmemorable. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, on the other hand, had an awesome soundtrack overall.

No Wii U? Bad Ubisoft, bad, bad Ubisoft! Will play this happily on my PC tho, but i'm disappointed because the Gamepad was a great option to play this game and it was just thrown away. It could be a lot like the ZombiU's controls.(No hate on my controller preferences pls, idc about native 1080p)
badz149  +   634d ago
They said last gen and current gen only. Wii U is a inter-gen, so it doesn't count! Just joking, they mightvannounce it later like they did WD

But on a serious note, the Wii U is so insignificant, their biggest 3rd party supporter also don't seem to care that much anymore. It's like if theycare asked about will there be a Wii U version, they'll say "meh...depends!"
7uff1  +   634d ago
Yeah, I'm a little disappointed to see that but it is not a big deal since I can still play third party games on my PC, using the Gamepad is just a preference.
mushroomwig  +   634d ago
No Vita version? Bad Ubisoft!

Come on, be realistic now 7uff1.
7uff1  +   634d ago
Why wanting an Ubisoft game that will be out for PS3 and X360 to be also on Wii U is unrealistic? But I think I get your point, Wii U's 3rd party support is nearly dead, and Ubisoft is also dropping it.

I definitely see Far Cry 4 getting hit with a delay.
Omegasyde  +   634d ago
They have multiple offices like EA and Activision.

So they have different office doing different projects.

But I don't really expect this game in November 2014. Ubisoft likes to delay games. I hope I am wrong.

Audiggity  +   634d ago
Sweet. Can't wait. I liked every Far Cry game (aside from Instincts of course)... even FC2.

FC3 was great.

One complaint - how can they already offer a pre-order bonus and not even have a trailer ready? That seems silly.

Iv played FC2 and FC3. I honestly didn't care much for 2. But that was years ago. So maybe it was just me. But FC3 is in my personal top 5 games of all time. You don't need to play 2 to understand 3. So I would say start with 3. It's fantastic. Iv played it and beaten it about a dozen times at least.
You won't regret it.

Ah finally this is going to be fantastic. Far Cry 3 was one stunning game. But the real questions everyone are going to ask will be "Is it going to be 1080p 60 fps on X and Y console and will it be delayed?". It's really sad this gen has started out like this.

HRoach616  +   634d ago
With all the delays that seem to hit the games I'm looking forward to the most I'm gonna bet this was announced too early and it gets delayed till same time next year.
I pray I'm wrong because far cry 3 wasn't just one of my favorite games last gen, but one of my favorite games ever.
But these companies keep announcing things way to early and it screwes with production. Then it gets delayed. It's not fair. At the very least if they want to announce it then don't give a release date. Just say when it's ready. At least I understand that from a development standpoint.
