In a somewhat of a odd (but awesome) pairing, rapper Childish Gambino (Donald Glover is his real name) collaborated with "Far Cry 3" to make an incredible music video trailer. Glover's sharp, charged vocals contrast really well with the gorgeous environments being forged by Ubisoft for the imaginary country of Kryat, where "Far Cry 4" will take place.
Glover specifically chose his song "Crawl" from his new album Because the Internet, because of its cutting, politically-charged lyrics, something that should pair well with the next installment of the "Far Cry" series - a series known for making statements. In the video, Glover says this about choosing "Crawl" for the video:
If I had to choose a song that I made that's appropriate with "Far Cry 4," I guess it would be "Crawl" from my album. It's the most weirdly, political, and most ... like, I feel like it fits that tone. Because it's uncomfortable, like it's something amazing that is also, like, terrifying. ... I feel like life is fucked up, so why wouldn't it be fucked up?

With the music, we also get glimpses of a lot of the gameplay and hints at the story of "Far Cry 4." Right off the bat, you get the idea that "Far Cry 4" is going to be much more of a spiritual or mystical type of journey as compared to its predecessors - you see masked men disappearing in smoke and some really bizarre visuals. You also see a lot of people on fire, rhinos charging, and one of the most badass ways to take out an airplane that I've seen in a game (you'll have to watch the video below to see it!).
You remember when I said that I was going to make you watch the video to see the awesomeness with the plane? I lied Click the box below.
