Behind the scenes Far Cry 4 video shows how Ubisoft brought Kyrat to life

Posted on July 25, 2014 AT 05:24am

Ubisoft has released the first in a new series of behind the scenes videos for Far Cry 4, focusing on the research that went into creating the upcoming open-world shooter’s setting of Kryat.

“The team traveled to Nepal with VICE to draw inspiration and create authentic Kyratic characters and environments native to the region,” the publisher said. “Far from the tourist trail, they encounter people whose stories can help an outsider better experience the fabric of life there, both culturally and politically.”

This first video reveals what motivated the team to travel to Nepal, and shows “their first steps in a country where the crowded and polluted cities mix with deserted and intriguing sceneries.”

Far Cry 4 is set to launch November 18 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
