Players can also perform stealth attacks (i.e., sneaking up on enemies and slitting throats/stabbing chests).

“Battles are highlighted by screams of pain, realistic gunfire, and large blood-splatter effects. Some levels/cutscenes depict further violence: characters tortured via electrocution, stabbed repeatedly in the neck, executed with bladed weapons.

The game includes some sexual/suggestive material, including dialogue referencing sexual activity (e.g., “The army forces us to take drugs and then gives us more if we do sex for wealthy men”; “Some of the people in my village, the army forced them to become prostitutes”; “I think sex is fun;” “[I] was with this girl and she was into some crazy S&M. . .”).

In one battle sequence, a man’s genitals are briefly exposed while falling/being attacked. During the course of the game, two characters are depicted smoking marijuana; players’ character also consumes the drug, resulting in blurred-screen effects and occasional hallucinations. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.”

Far Cry 4 is scheduled to launch on November 18, 2014. The game is powered by Dunia Engine 2.
