Far Cry 4 Multiplayer Could Change Console Gaming For The Better

Rich Drummond of Gaming Tech United writes:

"If there was one thing that I've enjoyed about handheld gaming on the 3DS,  it is the ability to download play titles with a friend. With this feature, you could play a certain game with a buddy who owned the console, but not the game. This was used by many people in the game Mario Kart 7. This featured has seemed to have crept its way into Far Cry 4 and I believe that if it is done right, we could see something special happen in the gaming community." (Far Cry 4, PS4, Xbox One)

I imagine when you invite someone who doesn't own the game will invited as a demo player so to speak. So they can play with their friend for an hour or 2.

There is no way a publisher will basically give the whole game away for free.

Its a great idea... certainly saves time on downloading demos etc. I hope more publishers get on board

Yeah, this is what I'm expecting to get and honestly, I'm ok with that. I think it'll be a great way to give a game a try if you're unsure about it.

Yeah they already said that you will get x amount of hours for free. I forget the exact amount. And ten invites.

It's not a demo mode. PS4/3 will be able to share the multiplayer with 10 of friends for coop. This is a Playstation exclusive feature.

What I'm asking is if there's only certain parts of the game that support it, or if the entire game can be played for free with a friend.

The entire game is not open to friends for free. It will probably only be for strikes against enemy strong holds. They would not make much money if they were giving away 10 free copies for ever one copy sold.

You get 10 free Keys for friends, allowing each person to co-op with you in your game, for free and essentially try out the game with its co-op side quests and open world for a few hours.

Anyone who thought they were getting to play co-op for free forever is just laughable.
