Ubisoft has announced Far Cry 4, an open-world, first-person shooter that delivers the most expansive and immersive Far Cry experience ever. Far Cry 4 will be available November 18 in the US and November 20 in the EMEA territories for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
Development on Far Cry 4 is being led by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with Red Storm Entertainment, a Ubisoft studio, Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai, and Ubisoft Kiev. In Far Cry 4, players find themselves in Kyrat, a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles and animals, players will write their own story across an exotic open-world landscape.
Customers who pre-order Far Cry 4 receive a free upgrade to the Limited Edition which includes Hurks Redemption, a series of three action-packed single-player missions featuring the popular character Hurk from Far Cry 3s DLC. The Limited Edition also includes Hurks signature harpoon gun called The Impaler. The pre-order is now available at all major retailers.
Fans can tune into Ubisofts Media Briefing at E3 for an exclusive first look at Far Cry 4. So personally I’m really excited about this because Far Cry 3 was nothing short of a masterpiece. The game brought the Far Cry franchise back in a big way, but I believe there is a very important question that needs to be asked. Is it too soon? I mean Far Cry 3 was in development for some time and I just don’t know if you can deliver that level of quality this fast. If anyone can do it, it would definitely be Ubisoft but this seems a little soon to me. I’m not a betting man, but something tells me this game slips into 2015.
