Far Cry 4 launches on November 18 for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Xbox Wire describes it as the one of the most forward-thinking shooters of this generation. The game includes smartly designed, procedurally generated content from a complex array of systems. You can also throw bait to lure animals where you want them, or merely watch them interact with one another: Eagles pluck goats from the mountaintops, jungle cats stalk various prey, and the like. And though it may seem like a small addition, the new ability to kick objects (rocks, barrels, people) and watch them tumble down hills and over cliffs makes for some genuinely exciting, reactive moments. Read more on it from Xbox Wire. MASSIVE OPEN WORLD: Discover the most diverse Far Cry world ever created.

Lionel Raynaud, VP of creative at Ubisoft said that Ubisoft isn’t abandoning the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 anytime soon few months back. But now, Ubisoft Chief Executive Officer Yves Guillemot has revealed that Ubisoft will stop developing games for Xbox 360 and PS3 after 2015. “What we see is that this year is still fine for the PS3 and 360. But next year because they are selling very quickly, we’ll move to the new hardware. After 2015, it will be hard for us to create games for those systems,” Guillemot explains.
