The announcement of the Retro Video Game System, a cartridge-based console, is the latest case study in the debate of whether gaming should continue evolving beyond its roots.
Far Cry 4 To Be Set In The Himalayas
Far Cry 4, the next title in Ubisoft’s long running franchise, is said to be set in the Himalayas this time around. Eurogamer‘s sources have broken the news on this new location. While Far Cry is known for its sunny and tropical locations, it seems that they are going for a major change this time around. Gamers can look forward to a more alpine climate in the Himalayas which will certainly include some snowy sections. Ridable elephants are also confirmed to be an in-game feature.
Far Cry 4 is aiming to release in the first half of 2015, more specifically before the end of March 2015. The game will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC and it remains to be seen if Far Cry 4 will also be releasing on Xbox 360 and PS3.
Look for an official reveal of Far Cry 4 at this year’s E3 press conference.
