The ‘Battles’ of Kyrat’ have been detailed by Ubisoft and all things point to seeing the Far Cry 4 world in a completely different light.
Taking on the form of a re-telling of a long-past war that Pagan Min’s elite guard, the Rakshasa, fought against the Golden Path rebellion, the battles of Kyrat will see each faction with their own unique set of weapons and skills. Players will have to adapt to their strengths and weaknesses while making their own progress within the multiplayer mode.
The Rakshasa are the mythical warriors of Kyrat with strong ties to their natural surroundings. They can call upon animals to help in both defending and attacking positions. Using only traditional weapons, specifically the bow, they are capable of crafting multiple alterations to their weapons.
On the other hand, their sworn enemies, the Golden Path are all about its arsenal: guns, vehicles and tech-enhanced capabilities. They have access to a variety of weapon types, including assault rifles, shotguns, and multiple explosives as well as access to bell towers, allowing them to spot the hidden enemy from far away
The PvP mode consists of:
- 5v5 round-based matches.
- Asymmetrical gameplay where the players take on each faction. The team with the best overall performance on both wins the match.
- 20 minutes average match length.
- 10 maps at launch.
- 3 modes; Outpost – the Golden Path works to establish an outpost in the region while the Rakshasa has to get rid of them and secure the outpost for Pagan Min, Propaganda – the Golden Path has to destroy three Pagan Min installations while the Rakshasa protects them, Demon Mask – both sides have to find the mask and return it to their home base.
Far Cry 4 will be the most expansive and immersive Far Cry ever. You can pick it up on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PC from November 14th 2014.
