Alex Hutchinson has further revealed more of the open-world gameplay elements in the upcoming cross-generation title, "Far Cry 4." According to a report from Gaming Bolt on June 28, the creative director stated that players have several ways to attack an enemy base without having to barge right in. One of the methods is attaching a C4 explosive to a car and then cutting the break line. The vehicle should then roll down to the enemy's foothold before exploding.

Another way is to attached the C4 bomb to an elephant and then sending the animal into the base before exploding. Ubisoft previously confirmed that the same creature can also function as a vehicle as well as a weapon. For example, the player can control the elephant's tusk to perform a devastating melee attack.

"Far Cry 4" also features a returning element from "Far Cry 3." Alex Hutchinson confirmed that missions relating to crafting will be coming back although players won't be poaching the elephants. Furthermore, the sequel should also provide more ways, when compared to the third number installment, to craft items.

The latest game on the "Far Cry" series was leaked ahead of an official announcement. Ubisoft provided a first look at what appears to be the opening sequence during a press conference that took place the day before E3 2014. A gameplay demonstration was later provided near the end of another media briefing held by Sony Computer Entertainment.

"Far Cry 4" is being advertised primarily for the PS3 and PS4. The game comes with an exclusive feature on Playstation platforms in which players can invite their friends to play a cooperative session even if the invitees do not have a copy of the software product. The upcoming title is also slated to arrive for the PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Nov. 18 in the North American region. You can find a screen from the open-world first-person shooter near the top of this article (courtesy of the official Twitter page of the series). Pre-order the first-person shooter with the next Amazon link: "Far Cry 4."
