Far Cry 3 — and Far Cry 4, which is just Far Cry 3 with a hat on — are all about one thing: outposts. Murdering bad guys in inventive and creative ways, involving bears as often as possible, is the bread and butter of Ubisoft’s new Far Cry, and it’s great. It’s genuinely great, and when I fired up Valley of the Yetis and began to take over my first outpost, immediately falling back into my old habits, I could feel a big grin spread across my face right away.
“This is what it’s all about,” I said to myself as I murdered a weird Tibetan mountain man with demon horns and threw his screaming body into a ravine. “This is what is best in life.”
Once they were all dead, Valley of the Yetis turned around and handed the outpost to me, and said “Now, you defend it from us.”
Yes, Valley of the Yetis. Yes I will.
