As part of promotion for Far Cry 4, Ubisoft held a contest that took gamers to the top of the world. Seeking out the best Far Cry players, they selected gamer Will Cruz as the winner, and brought him on a journey to the tip of Mount Everest, where he and a group of 15 others played Far Cry 4 at 18,560 feet above sea level. Recording this instance, he now holds the record for “Highest Altitude Videogame Console Session”

While not an incredibly important record to set, it’s strange, awesome, and opens up for competition. Hopefully we’ll see somebody free fall from the stratosphere with an Oculus Rift in a few years. But for now, enjoy your victory, Will!

What do you think of this achievement? Have you ever tried for a gaming record? Tell us in the comments!
