I’m not kidding when I say this thing is full of spoilers. Narrated by an exuberant radio talk show host who somehow seems to know everything about everything, this whopping eight minute trailer for Far Cry 4 starts off with, “Kyrat’s got so much stuff to see, terrains to explore, people to meet, animals to hunt, wrongs to right, and trippy sacred realms to explore.” It then goes on to describe all of that, in massive detail, including a few major characters and plot points that would’ve probably better served as surprises.
For someone who isn’t too picky over spoilers, though, this trailer is a good way to stave off the anticipation until Far Cry 4 is released next week. There are some awesome moments with Pagan Min and cohorts (the delivery on “You have been a naughty little shit, haven’t you?” further cemented my undying Pagan Min love) as well as some introductions to potential allies. There’s also a section on weaponry (“switch it up to keep ’em guessing on how they’ll die!”), vehicles, skills and crafting (just like in Far Cry 3, apparently stabbing an animal once and tossing a perfectly shaped hunk of meat into your pack is all it takes to skin it), quests types, and more.
Far Cry 4 drops November 18 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and PC.
