VIDEO: Far Cry 4 – PvP Mode
JOIN THE STRUGGLE FOR KYRAT IN FAR CRY 4 ALL-NEW PVP MODE
In “Battles of Kyrat”, Far Cry 4 world is shown in a completely different way. The player’s battles take on the form of a re-telling of the struggle that took place in a long-past war that Pagan Min’s elite guard, the Rakshasa, was fighting against the Golden Path rebellion. Each faction has their own unique set of weapons and skills and players have to adapt to their strengths and weaknesses while making their own progress within this multiplayer mode.
The Rakshasa are the mythical warriors of Kyrat, tied to a close connection with nature. They can call upon animals to help in both defending and attacking positions. The Rakshasa uses traditional weapons only, specifically the bow, but are capable of crafting multiple alterations to their weaponry. On the other hand, the Golden Path is all about its arsenal: guns, vehicles and tech-enhanced capabilities. They have access to a variety of weapon types, including assault rifles, shotguns, and multiple explosives. Finally, the Golden Path has access to bell towers, allowing them to spot the hidden enemy from afar.
As a whole, the PvP mode consists in:
- A 5v5 round-based matches
- An asymmetrical gameplay where the players take on each faction. The best overall performance on both wins the match.
- 20 minutes average matches
- 10 maps at launch
- 3 modes:
o Outpost where the Golden Path works to establish an outpost in the region while the Rakshasa has to get rid of them and secure the outpost for Pagan Min.
o Propaganda where the Golden Path has to destroy three Pagan Min installations while Rakshasa protects them.
o Demon Mask where both sides have to find the mask and return it to their home base for proper handling.
