"I'm just going to lay this out in the open since I know it's the answer for the question everyone is asking. Yes, Far Cry 4 is very much like Far Cry 3.

Far Cry 4 takes us out of the warm tropics and far away from pirates and mercenaries to take on something far more sinister, in a much more enthralling setting."
