Ubisoft is set to launch a new addition to one of its iconic shooter franchises with a new Far Cry game landing later this year. The game is Far Cry 4 and it is set to launch on November 18 in the US. The game will land in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East a couple days after that US launch.
Far Cry 4 will come to the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Presumably, the game will come to the PC as well since other games in the franchise have.
The Game will be set in the cold and perilous Himalayan Mountains.
“Hidden in the majestic Himalayas lies Kyrat, a country steeped in tradition and violence. You are Ajay Ghale. Traveling to Kyrat to fulfill your mother’s dying wish, you find yourself caught up in a civil war to overthrow the oppressive regime of dictator Pagan Min.
Explore and navigate this vast open world, where danger and unpredictability lurk around every corner. Here, every decision counts, and every second is a story. Welcome to Kyrat.”
According to the by the game’s director, the man in the flashy suit featured in the game’s promo-art is not the playable character, and he’s “not white”. Considering the man’s dictator-ish posture , we’re assuming for now it’s Pagan Min mentioned in the description above.
Ubisoft has promised Far Cry 4 will come with a “vast array of weapons” and has said that vehicles and animals will play a significant role in the game. Ubisoft’s Montreal studio is developing the game. Ubisoft producers say that the game will surprise users and that more details will be coming at E3.
You can already pre-order the game if you know you want it before more details are offered. It’s available to preorder for $60 on both next generation and older generation consoles from the Uplay online store.
Customers who pre-order Far Cry 4 will receive the Limited Edition which includes Hurk’s Redemption, a series of three single-player missions featuring Hurk from Far Cry 3’s DLC. The Limited Edition also includes Hurk’s signature harpoon gun called “The Impaler”. The pre-order is now available at all major retailers.
