In the most recent trailers for Far Cry 4, we are shown the fictional country of Kyrat in all of its splendor and glory. These are just glimpses of the vast landscapes we are to tackle in the next Far Cry. From high up in the Himalayan Mountains to the valleys in between, you will be exploring the country while a bloody civil war wages on that has split the country’s people in two with the imposter king Pagan Minn fueling the flames of this war. While exploring, you’ll come across animals never seen in a Far Cry game, like elephants with which you can mount and ride, just like at the circus. But this “circus” is none like you have ever seen; tigers mauling people to death, elephants stampeding into enemy cars or men, flying around the mountain side in a squirrel suit, keeping the wildlife in check, and visiting the spiritual world of Shangri La in your mind. Everything in Kyrat has the potential to be deadly, so tread lightly, explore everything, and try to keep your wits intact.
Another cool feature on Far Cry 4 happens to be the Keys to Kyrat, which are ten unique codes that can be given to anyone on your friends list that will enable them to join in on some multiplayer action for 2 hours per key, even if they don’t own the game themselves, I’m sure you will be able to give multiple keys to one friend, if that’s what you choose to do with your ten keys. I feel that this is exactly what Sony has in mind for their Share Play initiative and this is just testing the waters to see how well it works using the Gaikai technology that they acquired back in 2012 since the Keys to Kyrat are only available on the PS4 at this time.
