Here Is How Far Cry 4’s Co-Op Works If You Don’t Own The Game

Remember when it was announced that you can play Far Cry 4 co-op with your friends even if you don’t have the game?  Well here’s how!

If you do not have the game, PlayStation 4 owners will be able to download a separate Far Cry 4 app that will allow them to join their friends’ games.  It will be a giant app because it includes everything in the game except the story-based missions (exclusive to single-player).

Eurogamer scored an interview with Far Cry 4 technical director Cedric Decelle, where he said that the studio is still working on adjusting co-op play to make it harder than playing by yourself.  It was also revealed that Far Cry 3’s Hurk will be the second co-op player.

Far Cry 4 is scheduled for release on November 18th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

My Opinion:

I was curious how this would end up working when it was announced.  Honestly I think this is a very forward thinking way of doing co-op and multiplayer.  It gives people a chance to experience the game without paying for it, which could in turn lead players to buy the game themselves.  Then again, this won’t work for every game out there; especially not multiplayer-centric games.  If the game does not have a strong single-player experience, then there will inevitably be a large amount of people just downloading the free co-op and multiplayer portion of the game to only play the part they want.  It will be interesting to see how many people take advantage of this.
