Info on Far Cry 4 Coming “Soon”

Published

 on

Tony Key (Ubisoft’s senior vice president on marketing and sales) recently spoke to Gamespot to talk about the critical success of Far Cry 3 and its successor Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

“We’re totally psyched from Far Cry 3. It’s a great brand, and now it’s got the recognition it deserves, so we’re clearly going to make another one: more on that soon.” Oh Tony you tease! Hanging Far Cry 4 news in front of my face is like hanging a steak in front of a Lion, I want it! He went on to mention how Ubisoft feel that open world games “represent the future of, you know, gaming, and that’s where we’re investing huge portions of our resources – because we believe that that is what consumers want.” And who could argue with that? Far Cry 3 had a great open world that was astonishing and beautiful each time you booted it up, hopefully this’ll remain true for Far Cry 4 too.

It is true however that Far Cry 3 did brilliantly well scoring an average of 9 across the board from most recognisable sites and magazines. Blood Dragon did nearly as well with most giving it an 8.5. Personally I felt the game was actually brilliant and nothing short of 9, the story with Vaas (who essentially was The Joker but with a tan) kept me on the edge of my seat and Jason Brody’s own transformation was something spectacular to behold. For me the only hold back was I felt the story got a bit boring when you were faced with Hoyt, but thats only my opinion.

In the same talk Tony also mentioned the Prince of Persia titles saying “Prince of Persia, it’s got a really strong legacy with Ubisoft and it’s still there. We have nothing to announce, but, you know, we haven’t sold it off or given it away, so be patient. I know that’s hard!”. So its sounds like the folks down at Ubisoft may be brainstorming up the next premise for Prince of Persia but who knows when we’ll hear more?

Let us know what you loved about the Far Cry series so far and maybe what sort of terrain you’d like to see the next one set?

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
