Once GAME Newcastle had another lock-in event again but this time it was based on Far Cry 4, I have been to the last two lock-in events for both The Last of Us and inFamous Second Son it was pretty much checking out the demo before it gets released a few weeks later to the public. However Far Cry 4 won't be released until November 18th for PS3/PS4/XBOne/360/PC the demo was only on the PS4 when I went to GAME plus one of the PlayStation representatives was there including one or two members from Ubisoft as well plus asking a few people who were there to see what everyone thought about the game itself.
I did mention about Far Cry 4 back in June during the E3 Press Conference and E3 2014- EA and Ubisoft Press Conferences wasn't allowed to take any footage of the gameplay but a lot of people recognised the stage because it was the same demo they've used at E3 but it is nice to play a demo from E3 because nine out of ten we never play the original demos from E3 unless you got to places like MCM or EuroGamer. You had the choice in the demo to Sneak, Ride, or Fly your way into the Fortress, the whole mission in the demo was to raid the fortress and take out all of the enemies. Past Far Cry games have given you the freedom and choices on how to take your enemies by sneaking around killing them quietly or just shoot your way through you can beat the demo within 10-20 minutes depending on how often you play FPS games or past Far Cry games.
You even had the chance to ride an elephant in the demo just like you would see in Lord of the Rings: Return of the King by riding an elephant and firing your weapon like a mad man. In the demo you do have a MG42 and a GL-A87 which is a grenade launcher, you can pick up an auto-crossbow as well in the demo if you want to keep your attacks silently without making any sounds if you carefully aim at enemies in the head plus if you didn't more reinforcements would show up out of nowhere; you have a health bar on the bottom left which will have 4 small green health bars if your health is low you can press and hold down the Triangle button to restore your health, you can also use the right analog stick to use your knife to kill enemies. The graphics and visuals were really impressive to see on a PS4 console I know that the game is still in development and I'm pretty sure that Ubisoft have still got a few things left to do on the game before its released but I did hear someone asking if this was coming on Wii U. Sadly the bad news is that Ubisoft hasn't got any games planned in the future for that console the only games that are being released for the Wii U this year are Watch Dogs and Just Dance 2015 but still a good question to ask at least.
And also one of the TV screens did show the Far Cry 4 trailer as well most of the night while there was a small queue for play the demo including some free pizza and drinks. It was also nice to talk to one of reps from PlayStation about how good OlliOlli is on the PS Vita and now that the game is now a Cross-Buy for PS3 and PS4 users, for an indie skateboarding game I'm actually impressed how good it is I may be talking about Cross-Buy games later in the future maybe on what other games that should get the treatment if it ever happened. As I already mentioned above enjoyed the demo and a good chat with a people that I know in general I do look forward to the next Lock-In event whenever GAME does have another one at least.
