E3 2014: With Hindi-speaking villains, elephants and rickshaws, Far Cry 4 could be massive in India

At the E3 conference, we got more Far Cry 4 is going to be massive hit when it launches on November 11 this year and is easily in the running for GOTY.


One look at the gameplay video trailers demoed at E3 this year and it’s easy to see why. Indians in particular will especially love this game, not only for its locations but the fact that the baddies abuse in Hindi.


That’s right! Rather than listen to a bunch of Germans or Chinese militants yell cuss words that, quite frankly, make no sense to us, we’ll now be able to understand everything they are saying.


The spoken Hindi itself sounds authentic, with the right accent and tone. We already knew the game is set in a fictional universe called Kyrat in the Himalayas. Add to that the fact that the game will feature angry marauding elephants and auto-rickshaw rides and chases, and we have ourselves a sleeper hit. Check out the lengthy gameplay footage shown off at E3.



Ubisoft revealed the main villain of Far Cry 4 in a stunning yet horrifying opening sequence. Troy Baker, the voice actor known for BioShock Infinite's Booker DeWitt and The Last of Us' Joel, will play the villain.



Shown on the promotional posters and the covers of the game, the villain is a disturbing and seemingly disturbed fella named Pagan Min, who is just at ease killing so-called enemies with a bazooka or a pen point.


The game will be available November 18 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. However, exclusive to the PlayStation is a feature that lets gamers invite friends to play multiplayer even if they don't own the game, which could also be a major factor in India.
