Far Cry 4 Without All The Shooting

Far Cry 4 Without All The Shooting

There is a lot of stuff to shoot in Far Cry 4. A lot. Dudes, cars, merciless soul-eating badgers, rhinos, flying whirly copters — the list goes on. But sometimes it's nice to just sit back and admire the landscape too. This is all to say, "them graphics, tho."

Harry101UK put together this video showing off the surprisingly serene beauty of Far Cry 4, the stuff you might miss when it's all, er, exploding.

It's a gentle peek into the heart of a world where — according to our own Yannick Le-Hostile Wilderness Master — everything wants to kill you. I like that. It's easy to miss just how detail-rich and teeming-with-life these places are when hot lead is flying. Sometimes I just want to tour these places as something everyone will leave alone — say, an elephant or a rhino something.

Oh gosh, what about a Far Cry 4 expansion where the main character is an elephant? Far Cry 4: Blood Elephant. You roam the wilderness and try to avoid getting ridden or turned into a bag by the main character of vanilla Far Cry 4. I'm not sure if I'm joking. I might actually want that.

Anyway. Have you sank your ravenous Gamer Fangs into Far Cry 4 yet? If so, what do you think?


    It is really, really pretty. The mountains, god! The views and the vistas and the draw distance, oh man.

    I watched this and thought 'Cant wait till i get GTA V for PS4'.

    This is what video game tourism is all about. Imagine this optimized with the Occulus.

    I wonder which direction Far Cry 5 would go, given that one of its main calling cards is an exotic location, and it got me thinkin wouldn't it be awesome to be set in Australia, like have an outback area, coastline and bushland. We're also known to have some of the worlds deadliest animals too.

      Good idea! Our accents will have to be all replaced with Americans though cos you know... reasons..

        haha yeh, they should use the same voice actors from Dead Island

    I am loving it. I haven't played GTA V, so it was a tough choice between that and FC4, but since I loved FC3, it made the choice just a little bit easier. It's a beautiful game, that's for sure. I've put in 6 hours already, but a good portion of that had been sight seeing.

    I'm really enjoying this game and it is visually pleasing but it does frustrate me that I can't take 5 steps without a Karma event taking place.
    here i am, walking around this beautiful landscape enjoying the sights and sounds of nature and BAM! all I can hear is the rata tat tat of AK47's as a territory war starts 10ft away from or some of the locals decide to start spraying the air trying to hit an Eagle... there is not much peace in this game and I would probably go insane if I were to wear my headset.
