Far Cry 4 World Gameplay Premiere Trailer – Don’t Piss Off the Elephants!

By | June 11, 2014

The elephants sold me.  Yes, there are elephants in Far Cry 4.  And not just any elephants.  Blood-thirsty, crazy-mad elephants.  The gameplay premiere, narrated by two creatives, boasts an open world (though the video focused on a mountain pass) and lots of animals including yaks, an eagle and yes, elephants.  I love elephants.

There’s some beautiful stuff like mountains, trees and the sky.  Reminded me of N64 Turok.  The walkthrough also demonstrated a grapple, which helps you get across cliffs and climb things.  Reminded me of N64 Zelda.

The FPS also features kicking, shooting from a car, and flying like a “flying” lizard through a valley.  Wing-suiting seems fun, but things like that I prefer in 3rd person.

Okay, so far, all very exciting stuff, but down in the valley is where it’s at.  That’s where the elephants are.  I freaking love elephants!  It’s Bambi down there.  They’re grazing, playing in the river, just kicking it.  But then, in co-op mode, it all hits the fan and things go crazy.  There’s a battle.  Your friend in the air on a helicopter and you on the ground shooting at the bad guys.  Things are not looking good when a heavy machine gun on a jeep pulls up in front of you, but then out of nowhere, comes….

An elephant!

You’d think they’d freak out with all the noise, but instead they charge right in, mad as heck, blood-lust, looking for someone to kill.  It charges into the jeep and it explodes!  What happened to the elephant?  Probably BBQ but it doesn’t show.

I love elephants.  I’m buying this game.

Available November 18, 2014 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
