Ubisoft recently took me to Paris to look at Far Cry 4 and they allowed me to capture some of my gameplay – here are some co-op gameplay videos.

FC4_Screen_Karma_Event_2_Preview_141014_6pmCET

Far Cry 4 is an open-world, first-person shooter that delivers the most expansive and immersive Far Cry experience ever. Players find themselves in Kyrat, a breath-taking, perilous and wild region in the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will write their own story. For the first time ever, with Guns for Hire, players can invite a friend or AI companion to join them in the exotic open world, providing an exponential expansion of possibilities.

FC4_Screen_Arena_Explosion_Preview_141014_6pmCET

Far Cry 4 takes you to Kyrat, a mountainous paradise nestled in the Himalayas. Torn apart by civil war where the Kyrati people, led by the Golden Path, fight to take the power back from Pagan Min’s dictatorship.

All gameplay videos were captured from the PS4 version of the game using a build that was around 6 weeks old at the time of capturing, so if you see any little glitches or bugs they have most likely been fixed now.

musterbrand has announced a new line of apparel and accessories based on Assassin’s Creed Unity by Ubisoft.

ACU_107_SP_NotreDameStealth_1411382678
Set in a once-magnificent Paris, Assassin’s Creed Unity plunges into the terror of the 1789 French Revolution and features the most dense and immersive Assassin’s Creed city ever created. Through the streets of Paris, the starving inhabitants are set to take up arms for freedom and equality. In this time of chaos and brutality, a young man named Arno, wounded by the loss of those he loved, sets out on a deadly path of redemption. Arno’s pursuit throws him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation and transforms him into a true Master Assassin.

MBAC028-Bastille-front
The setting has been a major influence for musterbrand in creating the apparel line. All items in the collection feature elements hinting at the historical period, without being replicas of costumes from the game.

MBAC033-Brotherhood_Scarf-front

The range of items in the collection for Assassin’s Creed Unity encompasses coats, jackets, hoodies, knitwear, scarfs and bags, all individually designed and crafted, using only high-quality materials.

MBAC027-Arno_Coat-front-hood

The flagship item for male gamers is the Arno Coat made from blue moleskin fabric and featuring a detachable hood, French Revolution–style collar and sleeves. The detachable decorative pieces are interchangeable, giving fans a chance to continuously vary the look of their cloak.

MBAC036-La_Liberté-front-hood

For the first time, musterbrand also introduces a high-end jacket specifically created for female fans: “La Liberté”. It is made from the finest moleskin fabric, with a tricolor lining and an elaborate logo stitching on the back.
The entire range of products will be released in mid-November and is available for pre-sale at www.musterbrand.com now.

If you are on the market for a 28” gaming monitor, Samsung have the UD590 that you might want to take a look at – and here is our review.

U28D590_001_Front_Black_Shrunk

The Samsung UHD monitor offers PC viewing, gaming and more with Ultra HD picture quality. A resolution 4 times higher than Full HD and an incredible 1 billion colours bring images to life with unparalleled realism. A superfast 1-millisecond response time handles even the fastest moving scenes in movies and games, and great connectivity and Game Mode mean it’s equipped for a rich gaming experience. You can do more with multi-linking features like PIP 2.0 and PBP that keep the original source resolution. Thanks to elegant minimal design, there’s nothing to distract you from amazing viewing.

Bring out the best picture quality possible for all your favourite content and make them worthy of your UHD experience. Samsung’s technology automatically detects the content’s original resolution and improves it with noise reduction and up-conversion to create clearer, sharper images. Thanks to UHD upscaling, it brings all your entertainment and other content up to a new UHD-level.

Game Mode adjusts your monitor’s settings instantly to give you an optimised gaming experience. Game Mode smartly detects the changes in scenes, enhances the colour and alters the screen’s contrast to make dark spots darker and light spots lighter so you can see all the action at all times. There is less lag thanks to a faster video response time that ensures that the picture keeps up with action.

Final Thoughts

The first thing you notice about this monitor is that it looks great, everything about it just makes you think it’s more expensive than it is (although you may not really care). Even the monitor stand makes you think “expensive television”, which is something that Samsung are very good at!

Setting up the monitor was a very quick process and it has enough ports on it to keep most people happy. In my case, for this two minute review, I connected my Windows 8.1 desktop up via HDMI (I also tested my Mac Pro with a display port connection as well) and I was up and running in a few moments.

You may be thinking that for a 4K monitor the price tag means it’s not very good, but you would be wrong. The price is under £500 which is a lot less than other 4K monitors on the market, but it doesn’t scrimp on features or performance.

Picture quality wise I was very impressed. As its a 4K monitor, it can produce up to 1.07 billion colours and the image was very sharp and the colours looks amazing. It also has PIP (picture in picture) if you want to use that.

One thing I wasn’t especially keen on was the angles I could adjust the monitor – basically I could tilt the monitor, and that’s it. For most people that will be fine though.

In terms of gaming, to get the most out of the monitor you will need a decent graphics card, and also games that support 4K, of which there are very little at the moment, although I don’t think that will be long before that changes, and besides, even games that are not running in 4K look spectacular!

So, for a £479 price tag, the Samsung UD590 monitor is a great way to get in on 4K gaming, and even looking at pictures and watching movies make this monitor well worth the money.
