Is this Far Cry 4 image faked?

54 second read

The following image was spotted floating around the Internet and it doesn’t take a genius to see that it’s a teaser for Far Cry 4. No seriously it says it right there in the bottom right corner just take a look for yourself.

farcry4

But is it real or has someone spent some time on photoshop to just wind us all up.

For those that finished Far Cry 3 you instantly spot a serious issue with this image but at the same time the styling is very good and the writing all fits in perfectly.

The only secret I have spotted here is that on the third panel from the top on the left under “Follow Me” we have a date of the 4th of April 2014.

So is this a real image and does that make us excited or is this just some practical joke?

Has anyone else noticed how many top titles Ubisoft seem to be releasing at the moment?

    I was never certain that Vaas died in FC3. That whole sequence was just.. messed up crazy. If anything, Vaas is the sort that could come out of that. Weren’t his eyes still open at the end? Creepy as.

    It would be awesome if he survived. He was one of the best villains I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

            that i cant dispute, but FARCRY 3 was just repetition after repetiton. anD what was up with getting Shark skin ( not to mention others) so i can upgrade the amouNt of bullets im holding … LAME. Then u go from camp to camp, killin all of them baddies( only like 5 different looking ones ), prevent the alarm from going off( WOOHOO), then on to the next.. wait fir it not new thing to do or explore but the “f ing” ..and in about 3hours of playing the “LAME GAME: u have pretty much obtained all the weapons, so what exactly made u want to go on..???? u get nothing new! . SAME old freaking thing again just a different location.. How the hell can u find that exciting. In fact it was the same thing in Farcry 2..

        nah, look at the spacing between the F and A… then look at a proper FC logo… The official source would never butcher a brand like that. The logo will most likely be sent out with a heafty “Style Guide” with many rules as to the usage of the logo.

    also dat logo.

      Vaas was the first Far Cry character who is actually memorable! He was really a breakthrough for Ubisoft and the Far Cry series IMO.

      So I say bring on Far Cry 4 and bring on some more of Vaas!

      That picture does seem to be fake though….

        I agree. I think they were trying to find their feet with all the different FarCry’s and now that they have they can go forward with it.
        Picture is fake though.

    It’s not Vaas. Look at the face. It looks like Jason’s face with vaas’ hair and scar. I think what they’re implying is that far cry 3 was a crazy dream in the mind of a crazy person, Jason Brody. That is, if this is even real.

      Have you ever thought maybe they’ll be doing a prologue to Vaas and we can get a better understanding of who he is and how he came to be??? Even if he really was just a figment of Jason Brody’s imagination, and if that’s the case, maybe we’ll have a prologue of Jason’s story and how he created Vaas

    I’d like to think its real but if it was then there wouldnt be a date on it (april 4th 2014) though it does make sense vaas is back cos he was only killed in a dream and the majority of gamers believed he never actually died

    The image is definitely fake. The Far Cry logo is joke. Look at the kerning between the F and A. The gaps too wide. That’s the standard equal kerning before a graphic designer pulls the leg of the A under the F. The letter C drops below the baseline ruining the block logo. Even the F drops below the baseline ever so slightly. Logo branding is a very strict business, Ubisoft would not damage their AAA IP by using inconsistent typography.

    All the scribbles on the wall lack any poetic wit and how the hell did he write them if his arms are in a straight jacket. It’s hasn’t been thought through properly. He’s was killed anyway, so he could only appear in a prequel, which would not work with him as a baddy because you would not be able to kill him. Too predictable. The cell is just way too big and why did he just limit his writing to the neat block of tiles. It should be scrawled at random all over.

      Good points and also I thought, would they really allow all that swearing on a promotional poster? and also the tagline ‘the insanity is back’ doesn’t seem like something a proper games company would say, sounds more like something a fan would say…

    I’m quite interested in the thought, Tori. Well, it can be an interesting story platform. If it is true, the game will be fascinating agenda. By the way, FarCry 3 is the best thus far for FarCry series.

    Chris refers to Christopher Mintz Plasse. If you watch “The Far Cry Experience” on YouTube, Vaas says the line, “Chris… wake the %^&$ up!” at the end of Episode 4. Right after that he says, “Carlos! Get some water! Bring the batteries! The spiders! Everything!” in an attempt to revive CMP. You see this line at the top on the left hand side of the padded cell.
