If your preference for open-world adventures lie with the more gun-toting variety, Ubisoft's Far Cry 4 hits shelves this week. The game is set in a fictional region inspired by the Himalayas. According to the developer, Far Cry 4 should take about 35 hours to finish.

As well as guns, players will also be able to weaponize the wildlife, from riding elephants to using snow leopards to gain advantage in combat. The game also introduces multiplayer co-operative play, a first for the Far Cry series. Haven't been keeping up with the game's pre-release information?
