If you don't normally follow the Ubisoft marketing machine as it preps games for launch, your might not be familiar with their "101" style of presentation. The company tosses up a long trailer, they throw a sort of chapter bar at the bottom of the screen and they dive into mechanics, plot points and settings for the incoming game.

Today we have one for Far Cry 4, and it checks in at roughly eight minutes in length. The game launches next Tuesday, so consider this trailer a good point of prep if you're getting ready to settle into the world of Kyrat for yourself.

We are supposedly on the list for a review copy of the game, but I doubt we'll have our coverage up for you at launch. Even if it shows up today, there's no way we'll be able to plow through the full campaign, all of the side activities and the multiplayer in time for launch day.

We'll update you as our time with the game moves along. Stay tuned for that.

Far Cry 4 will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms on Nov. 18. Stay tuned for more until then.
