Now there’s asset reuse, and then there’s asset reuse. There’s a bit of a storm brewing up over Far Cry Primal you see, centred around the lush prehistoric world of Oros. To look at it you’d hazard a guess it was an entirely different place to Far Cry 4’s Himalayan setting, but avid cartographers have been comparing the two game maps and found out the two are far more similar than at first meets the eye.
Ubisoft has unveiled the final piece of downloadable content coming to Far Cry 4. Far Cry 4: Valley of the Yetis takes protagonist Ajay Ghale deep into the Himalayas following a helicopter crash. It’s not too long before Ajay realised it’s not the locals he need be worried about, but an otherworldly foe come to join the party.
Ubisoft has posted its earnings report for the last quarter. Despite having a controversial few months with the launches of Assassin’s Creed Unity, the French publisher still managed to achieve a 55.8% increase in revenue year on year, up from €519.7 million to €809.7 million for the quarter.
The self-styled ‘anecdote factory’ that is Far Cry 4 is about to put its production lines into overload with latest 1.8.0 PC patch Ubisoft has released. Among other things the update adds support for co-op play on custom maps, so you can let your imagination run wild before inviting a buddy in to blow everything sky high with you.
A second batch of downloadable content has been made available for Far Cry 4 season pass holders. The Hurk Deluxe DLC adds all-new story missions and a stack of new weapons to obliterate your foes, including a rather tasty looking harpoon gun. Thanks Ubi, because that wouldn’t have been mighty handy in Far Cry 3’s tropical waters.
It’s emerged over the weekend that Ubisoft has begun deleting copies of Far Cry 4 bought through some third-party digital retailers. Customers of both G2Play and G2A are reporting that access to Far Cry 4 is being rescinded as Ubisoft engages in a widespread culling of illicitly gained CD keys.
Ubisoft has pushed out the permadeath Escape From Durgesh Prison DLC from Far Cry 4, alongside the obligatory Ubi trailer detailing what we can expect from it. Escape From Durgesh is a time-limited expansion that gives players 30 minutes to make their way out of the prison, before attempting to evacuate on a chopper.
After nine bloodthirsty rounds nine great games have already fallen in battle, and just three remain. Now it's time for this titanic trio to go head to head to head in a final truel, from which only one can emerge victorious. The average score of this little lot on the site is a massive 9 out of 10, so we're dealing with three of the greatest games to be released this year. 
This pair of open-world belters absolutely annihilated their competition in the previous round, not so much delivering knockout blows as littering the arena with C4 before blowing them to kingdom come. It’s safe to say that Far Cry 4 and Dragon Age: Inquisition are popular chappies, but now these holiday wonders must do battle themselves.
Let the chest-thumping commence. When it comes to face-offs it can’t really come more testosterone fuelled than these two brutes. In the wake of the disappointing Titanfall the path was cleared for Far Cry 4 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to mop up towards the end of the year.
Sound the alarms! Details on the 'Escape from Durgesh Prison' DLC coming in January 2015 for Far Cry 4 have got out. Don’t worry though, Game-Debate has caught them for you.
