Action 27 March 2018

Far Cry 5 is the fifth installment of the first-person action game series from Ubisoft. Unlike the previous installments of the series that took place in various exotic locations, Far Cry 5 takes the players to Montana, one of the least populated states of the USA. We play as a police officer (we can choose our character's gender and customize his/her looks) whose job is to infiltrate and destroy a crime organization that works under the cover of a fanatical cult led by the charismatic Joseph Seed who believes in a ruthless and sadistic way of dealing with enemies. In terms of gameplay, Far Cry 5 offers the biggest open world in the history of the series. Thus, vehicles play an important role here. It is filled with various side and main quests and other additional activities. The game offers a wide range of weapons for us to use and a rather complex crafting system. We also will be able to tame wild animals to make them fight on our side.

A spin-off to the first person open world action game series launched by Ubisoft in 2004. Far Cry Primal strands significantly from the previous entries in the franchise, taking us back in time to the year circa 10 thousand B.C. We play as hunter named Trakkar, whose tribe has been slaughtered and who find himself in the dangerous land of Oros, where humans are nothing more than prey for prehistoric beasts. One of the most important features of the game is survival; we explore the world while completing quests, hunting various creatures, crafting useful items and learning new skills. Unlike in the main installments in the series, our hero obviously wonít find any guns in his inventory - only primitive weapons like spears, clubs, and bows. The lack of vehicles is compensated by the possibility of riding different animals.

Logic 18 November 2014

A simple logic arcade game and at the same time a mobile application accompanying the fourth major entry in Ubisoftís Far Cry series. Far Cry 4: Arcade Poker combines rules of the classic poker with features of a classic arcade game like Tetris. Players must assemble poker hands from falling cards before they reach the bottom of the screen. We drag the pieces we need into correct place, while those we have no use for can be exchanged for others with a single tap. This simple concept is varied through the addition of many power-ups. Naturally, every poker combination earns us points, and we are given additional tasks and high-scores to beat on later levels. One noteworthy thing is that virtual currency won in this game are sent to our characterís account in Far Cry 4.
