Far Cry 4 Invading the Himalayas November 18
After months of speculation, Ubisoft has officially let the cat out of the bag: Far Cry 4 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on November 18, 2014. And, as the rumors stated, the game is indeed set in the Himalayas.
"Taking a sharp turn away from the lush island jungles of the top-rated Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4 is set in Kyrat, an untamed region currently ruled by a despotic self-appointed king. But don’t be lulled into a false sense of security by the achingly beautiful views; Kyrat is a wild land full of perils. Once again, players will be able to craft their own stories as they travel through this exotic open world teeming with wildlife – using their wits along with an assortment of powerful weapons and diverse vehicles."
Ubisoft Montreal is taking lead on the project, which should come as no surprise. However, it is surprising that Ubisoft didn't just wait until E3 to make the announcement since it's less than a month away; though it has been confirmed that an "exclusive first look" will indeed be part of Ubisoft's E3 Press Conference.
While further details have not been disclosed yet, Ubisoft has already announced the pre-order bonus: a free upgrade to the Limited Edition. The Limited Edition includes three additional single-player missions that see the return of Far Cry 3's Hurk, as well as The Impaler – Hurk's "badass harpoon gun." Far Cry 4 is already available for pre-order at major retailers for $59.99, including the Uplay Shop.
