Far Cry 4’s getting drop-in, drop-out co-op

I love the smell of Co-op in the morning. Far Cry 3 featured a co-operative mode that allowed gamers to tackle a range of missions and take out bands on generic enemies out together. The problem is that it was a secondary mode with its own maps, and wouldn’t allow you to explore Far Cry 3’s tropical wonderland with a friends. Far Cry 4 changes that.

Called Guns for Hire, this new mode in Far Cry 4 allows friends to explore Kyrat as a bonded pair.

“You and a friend can take on the wilds of Kyrat as a pair, exploring the world, taking down enemies and generally making everything as precise or as chaotic as you choose,” Says the PlayStation Blog.  “Both players get experience, both players get in-game cash, and both players have an awesome time.”

It’s unclear, but from the wording it doesn’t seem that you’ll be able to tackle story-missions with a friend, which suits me just fine because I hate everyone and I prefer to play my games alone.

Interestingly, as a PlayStation exclusive, Those on PSN can rope friends in to help them capture outposts – even if those friends don’t own a copy of the game. That’s pretty neat; they won’t be able to play the game by themselves, but they’ll be able to join you, for free.

        To the Master Race, the word PLAY is?
        INSTALL, they love it.

        If it crashes then to them it means they died.

    Very interesting idea letting people who don’t own the game being able to join you. Can they join you in the tutorial too?

    Does that mean they’re Killing uPlay? because drop in- drop out works well on every other single Digital platform.

      After Angry Joe’s rant on Watchdogs they have to kill U-Play or they will loose PC support.

            Do you mean playing?
            I can normally guess what people mean when they get the word wrong but uPlay is in that sentence so it seems off.

            uPlay is Ubisoft’s service?

    This could be such a great idea to expand. Can think of many other games where this would work. What about Red Dead? Ohhhhhh
