With Far Cry 4, you will find yourself in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king, Pagan Min. With terrain spanning from lush forests to the snowcapped Himalayas, the entire world is alive…and deadly.- From leopards, rhinos, black eagles, and vicious honey badgers, Kyrat is home to abundant wildlife. As you embark on your hunt for resources, know that something may be hunting you...- Scout enemy territory from above in the all-new gyrocopter and then plummet back to earth in your wing suit. Climb aboard the back of a six-ton elephant and unleash its raw power on your enemies.- Choose the right weapon for the job, no matter how insane or unpredictable that job might be. With a diverse arsenal, you’ll be prepared for anything.
CO-OP: bring a friend!
As not every journey should be taken alone, Far Cry 4 allows for a second player to drop in and drop out at any point, re-imagining the cooperative experience in the true spirit of Far Cry for the next generation. You’ll now be able to discover and explore the living open world of Kyrat together!
A trip to Kyrat wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the highest peaks of the Himalayas! Throughout the game, you will come across a series of missions located at the peaks of snowy mountains. The Himalayan missions will push you to extremes: encounter avalanches, ride snowmobiles and fight for each breath as you live the effects of high altitude! The wingsuit might be your only chance at survival…
Kyrat is also a beautiful land deeply rooted in its rich mythology. Shangri-Là is a fabled place that is part of that folklore and has been sought after by mortals in the hopes of finding enlightenment. Presented as a parallel and esoteric universe, Shangri-Là is a place where you will transcend into the limitations of your own mind and go to a place where legends live. You’ll encounter a completely different set of mythical enemies with unexpected and surprising behaviors. You will have an ally, a noble white tiger, the protector of Shangri-Là. The tiger comes to your defense when provoked or can be sent to attack nearby enemies. The Shangri-Là bow, with the exclusive ability to momentary slow time, will also be available while players unlock skills within the main skill tree.
Far Cry 4’s new “Battles of Kyrat” multiplayer mode shows Kyrat in a completely different way. Your battles will take the form of a re-telling of the struggle that took place in a long-past war between The Rakshasa, Pagan Min’s elite guard and the Golden Path rebellion. In this asymmetrical experience, the different modes are round-based, so you’ll play as both classes in each match, in three game modes:- In Outpost, the Golden Path works to establish an outpost in the region while the The Rakshasa are looking to rid the land of all non-believers, and secure the outpost for Pagan Min.- In Propaganda, the Golden Path has to bomb and destroy these three propaganda installations, putting a stop to the spread of Pagan Min’s corruption.- In Demon Mask, the both sides have to capture the mythical Demon Mask by using a combination of stealth and outright assault to bring it back to their home base. Work together to prevent these sacred artifacts and their unique powers from falling into enemy hands.
If you haven’t had a chance to try your hand at map creation, you need to get in the game!

Using assets from the world of Far Cry 4, you’ll be able to add everything from vehicles to elephants to AI soldiers to weapons - even a golden effigy of Pagan Min. Become a dev and let the world experience your vision!
