Ubisoft kicked off its E3 2014 media briefing with the first five minutes of Far Cry 4. And it looks like it could well be an absolute stormer.

The trailer follows you attempting to cross the Himalayan border, but things quickly take a turn for the worse. Dan Hay, the game's executive producer, came on stage after and put it eloquently: "we give you a passport, some money, and after that, well, you're f-ed".

Check out the cutscene style trailer below.

Here's hoping the gameplay can keep up with this adrenaline inducing acting and action.
