Alex Hutchinson responds to criticism of key art, pointing to Ubisoft's strong heritage of diverse characters.
I think the cover is quite cool
Very cool. Dude shouldn't have had to say anything!
I like it too. And since many game covers are grey/black, the bright pink suit on a blue/green background would definitely stand out on store shelves.
I think the cover art doesn't make any freaking sense. That grenade will kill them both, goddamit!
Well now he tells us! :P
Sorry Alex Hutchinson but if I hadn't judged assassins creed 3 by the box then it would have been a no sale!
Ak47 and a RPG ? You sure this game isn't set in Iraq.. -waits silently for chuckles-
I did, cover looks great and Far Cry has only let me down once with Far Cry 2 but made up for it and more with Far Cry 3 soooo, I can't wait.
ITS GAY AND RACIST OK !!!! Ubisoft wont have female assassin they hate women too... haven't you heard !!!?! it on teh Interweb .... oh yeah ... /s sigh****
not bothered about the cover more worried about the gameplay farcry 3 seemed more stealthy which dragged me into getting it.I'm on the fence on this one from what I've seen I'll have to keep an eye on it
Don't judge Far Cry 4 by its cover,but i can judge if the graphic on pc are the same on consoles dun dun dish :P
Nobody buy games by its cover these days. If its ps1 era then yeah but not now
Really? Remember Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us? Both turned out to be awesome of course but the covers pre-release caused a lot of kerfuffle.
@Bathyj Of course, man. We HAVE to have something to b!tch about lol.
From what I've seen in game stores, a lot of family members of gamers and casual games seem to buy games randomly based on their cover. But I don't think there's anything wrong with Far Cry 4's cover that would deter those people from buying it. It's a pretty eye-catching cover imo.
But we can still do it with books but right?
This game is going to rock!
Unfortunately that's what idiots do. Everything from movies to books to games. It's sad really.
Fine, I will wait for the game before passing judgement on that anti-gay, pro-imperialist, racist, pro-homosexual, fashion-disaster of a cover! Just as long as no animals get harmed in the game, I will be ok with it :P
looks exactly the same as fc3, so i can expect it to be pretty bad
Translation: "Stop being so homophobic, people!"
Little late for that there has already been 3 or 4 separate outrage threads on gaf, 2 because people assumed that the villian initially was a white man terrorizing natives. And that the main character was another white male saving helpless natives ala far cry 3. Followed by 2 separate threads accusing ubisoft of trying to promote negative gay stereotypes because the main villian dresses in flamboyant clothes and has an odd behavior. Both threads started by gay posters, neither of which admitted they acted like fools and jumped to conclusions early on, at least not as of the last time i visited the threads. Ubisoft has already stated the villian isn't gay, so all that drama over nothing. After reading most of the posts in those threads, i get the impression that alot of people enjoy being morally outraged or offended by something. And then berate other's whose morals they deem beneath theirs while they stroke their own ego's. If the moral of the story is don't judge a book by it's cover, we already failed that test.
