Far Cry 4

Every so often, a developer diary comes along that is not only an entertaining watch but a fantastic insight into the minds that make our favorite games. Far Cry 4 is far along in development, and with such a uniquely fascinating setting to so meticulously capture, the team had to really learn about the locales.

What better way than to drop everything and fly to Nepal, not for vacation, but to see firsthand exactly what type of world Far Cry 4 will be based on?

Below is the mini-documentary in its entirety, and I highly suggest you grab a cold one and check it out. Be warned though, as there is ritualistic animal slaughter in the first of three parts.

Is Far Cry 4 based in India?

 Totally a fictional Himalayan countryside, Kyrat also (किरात) or (ཀྱ་རཏ), based in Nepal. This is located in the Himalayas (bordering Bihar, India as stated by the nearest embassy being in Patna), which is featured as the setting in the game.

Is Far Cry primal Kyrat?

Apparently Far Cry Primal takes place in an ancient version of Far Cry 4’s Kyrat.

Far Cry Sales

According to Wikipedia about the sales of the game,
Ubisoft expected the game to sell at least six million copies in its first year of release. Far Cry 4 became the fastest-selling game and the most successful launch in the series in the first week of release. Far Cry 4 was the second best selling game in the United Kingdom for all-formats during the week of its release, only behind Grand Theft Auto V. It was also the sixth best selling game in the US according to The NPD Group. As of December 31, 2014, the game has shipped seven million copies. The game sold more than 10 million copies during the eighth generation of video game consoles.

Naughty Dog details development process of Left Behind, teases new DLC

Naughty Dog

Over the weekend, Naughty Dog released a new documentary on the making of The Last Of Us: Left Behind, detailing the creative process for the much revered expansion.

While this documentary is around the ten minute mark, it is similar to ‘Grounded’, the making of documentary Naughty Dog released with the season pass. It’s also worth noting that the video spoils much of Left Behind and the original game, so watchat your own risk.

What’s more, Naughty Dog also mentioned a new difficulty mode for The Last Of Us and details on the final DLC drop. While no details were mentioned as of yet, I expect that this new difficulty setting will be even more challenging than Survivor mode, which was already brutal to say the least.

“It is chock full of multiplayer goodness with new maps, new weapons, new skills, and also a brand new difficulty mode for the single player campaign.”

The Last Of Us was a very fun and intense multiplayer experience, though it had a few setbacks that took away from any potential longevity it could’ve offered. The game featured only a few weapons, six maps, and two game modes, so it was very easy to get tired of the repetition. Naughty Dog did release a DLC pack containing four new maps and a new game-mode, but we were never offered more weapons or skills, so this should be the DLC we’ve been itching for.
