Far Cry 4 won't be a 'Disneyland version of Nepal'

Ubisoft’s final part of their Nepal trip helped to change the game into a more authentic experience, say the devs.

For the past couple of weeks we’ve been treated to some behind the scenes footage of Ubisoft trekking through the Himalayas in search of inspiration for Far Cry 4. And now we’re given the third and final part to the story. If you haven’t seen them yet, check out part one and part two.

Making a Far Cry game is no mean feat, and Ubisoft wanted to ensure they were bringing an authentic experience to their venture into the region of Kyrat

In part three they meet a woman, Bhabi, a former Maoist fighter that fought in the Nepalese civil war between 1996 – 2006. And returning to Kathmandu for their last night, they visited one of Hinduism’s holiest temples, and a place where people go to burn their dead.

The devs also described the game as ‘cliché’ and ‘artificial’ when they’d returned from their trip, so they used their experience to help fill in the details and change it from becoming the ‘Disneyland version of Nepal’. Check out the last part below.

Far Cry 4 is due for release in November 2014 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
