Want more monkeys? Pre-order Far Cry 4

2 min read


Far Cry 4 is absolutely bonkers – perhaps even  moreso than the previous entry, which featured the most mentally unstable antagonist I’ve ever seen. Far Cry 4 ups the ante with the various different flavours of destruction you can cause with all sorts of weapons and wildlife. Like monkeys, for example. You can cause chaos with monkeys, especially if you pre-order.

If you want to lock down your ticket to the Himalayas early, Far Cry 4 has some goodies waiting for you. Just like most pre-order incentives, Far Cry 4 will reward fans with some extra mission, additional monkey madness and a really massive harpoon gun that won’t be used as the manual suggests.

Monkeys will still be part of the main, vanilla Far Cry 4 experience. The pre-order incentive just adds to their numbers apparently, allowing you to flood the streets with more apes than even Darwin would be able to handle. I’m pretty sure they’re going to be as destructive as any other creature in Kryat. I mean, have you ever left a window open while away on holiday in a monkey-filled area? Savagery, I tell you.

The Impaler will also be unlocked from the start. A massive, over-powered harpoon gun that is pretty much capable of doing anything. Just look at how it tears that poor helicopter a new one. I’m not sure that’s entirely possible, but man does it make for a fun game.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

    what AI package do the monkeys use?
    is it comparable to dog or fish AI?

    • Spaffy

      Probably comparable to our Government.

      • Jaded_Reprobate

        so definitely fishy

      Simian >>>> Dog >>>>> fish AI

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    OOOOOORRRRRRRRRRR I can wait a year and get the game, the pre-order content & the season pass content all at once. Sounds like a plan to me.

      not available on steam is it?
      saw it was on Origin, they dont have specials as often as steam does.
      no idea what special ubisofts thingy does.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        It’s on Steam, saw the ad the other day.

    • Hammersteyn

      Not enough value to be bought day one?

      This is wisdom

  • ElimiNathan

    Really well written article

    • Considering it took Sandy 3 hours, 5 internet sites and every form of spell check she did really well!

  • HvR

    If they throw in a couple of Capuchin sized C4 suicide vests it will really get my awesome sauce flowing.

  • Hammersteyn

    Preordered but only because FC3 was so damn good.

    • FoxOneZA

      FC4 does look incredibly beautiful compared to military styled shooters.

    • Yeah man Other than the sucky ending I loved the game and even managed to 100% it (I think it was my first one!)

  • Looks like so much fun!

  • Nikola

    Think I will skip this one too many good releases in November plus does not seem all too good, maybe when it’s free on PS+ I’ll give it a go;)
