At this year’s E3, Ubisoft announced that Far Cry 4 owners on PlayStation platforms will be provided with 10 codes that can be given to friends. Those who access these codes can then, in turn, try out the game’s open world with the friend.
Creative director Alex Hutchinson shared a bit more about how things will work at a San Diego Comic-Con 2014 panel today. Although he wouldn’t reveal how long the code will last, he did say that it depends on the friend who owns the game being online.
“The inspiration came from the Super Nintendo days, and the way you tried out games then was to go to a buddy’s house and sit on his couch and play. How long you got to play depended on how long his mom let you sit there and keep playing, and when she said go home, that was it. So now, when you (the buyer) have decided you’ve had enough, (your friends) either have to buy it or log off.”
Hutchinson also confirmed that friends friends who join the session will play as Hurk, who flies a gyrocopter and provides air support.
