Far Cry 4's beautiful mountain nation of Kyrat was largely inspired by Nepal, a country that has recently been hit by a horribly destructive 7.8 magnitude earthquake. The development team behind the shooter have pulled together to match up to $100,000 in donations to the, one of several aid organisations responding to the crisis.
Ubisoft Montreal spent several years studying and researching the region in order to create's Himalayan setting, so it's no wonder the team feel a bit of a connection with the Nepalese people and their culture.
“Having spent the last few years working on Far Cry 4,” reads the campaign page, “a game heavily inspired by Nepal and its people, it is with heavy hearts that the Far Cry family pulls together to raise money for the Canadian Red Cross, who are mobilizing their traveling hospital team to Kathmandu to offer support and medical assistance.”
Ubisoft has been promoting the campaign, and so far (as of this post) donations have risen to $5,381. It's nice to see a game company stepping up to help out, so fair play to them. I'm sure that $100,000 will go a long way.
