Far Cry 4's first trailer makes the case for returning hang-gliders without showing any UPDATE: it's also a fake

Far Cry 4 co-stars a despotic blonde man sporting a pink suit. He is Vaas MKII, it seems.

UPDATE: It's a fake - sorry, gang. Turns out the windswept peaks were nicked from a BBC Winter Olympics advert. Sigh.

Far Cry 4 was announced last week. Not because a nondescript Thursday evening is the most visible time to announce a game, because it isn’t. Nor because it was E3, because it wasn’t. But Ubisoft were about to ring their investors, and really wanted to tell them about how well Far Cry is doing.

This moment can be ours, though - Far Cry 4’s first trailer.

Malaria? That’s 2008’s life-threatening illness. Pneumonia is more Far Cry 4’s thing:

Given that mountains were one of the primary draws of Skyrim, it’s about time first-person open world designers developed some sort of mechanic for climbing them. 

Bunny-hopping sideways up a cliffside hoping that we’ll stick? That won’t really cut it in the Himalayas, frankly.

And as our Tim notes: if they don't put a hang-glider at the top of Everest, this entire game is a waste of time.

“In Far Cry 4, players find themselves in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king,” said Ubisoft last week.  “Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape.”

The game’s been put together by Ubisoft Montreal, with help from Rainbow Six originators Red Storm Entertainment, current Splinter Cell custodians Ubisoft Toronto, I Am Alive creators Ubisoft Shanghai, and serial Assassin’s Creed helpers Ubisoft Kiev.

Far Cry 4 is out on November 21. Which is soon! Are you about ready for it?

The ski-ready ice architecture was a dead giveaway, in retrospect.
