The trailer also shows off the Far Cry famous wildlife, extreme sports that the player can supposedly take part in during the game, and lots of explosions and fire.
Far Cry 4’s newly announced “Battles of Kyrat” PVP mode will consist of 5v5 round-based matches with 2 different factions over 10 different maps and 3 different modes; Outpost, Demon Mask and Propaganda.

There are a multitude of weapons, vehicles for cross map travel… oh, and there are elephants, and you can ride them… enough said really!
