Far Cry 4 announced for November
Ubisoft has today announced Far Cry 4, which release release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in November this year.
Set in Kyrat, a fictional region in the Himalayas governed by a self-appointed king, Far Cry 4, like its predecessors, will be an open world first-person shooter with a variety of unique geographic features and wildlife.
"Following the success of Far Cry 3, we wanted to take the franchise to the next level and create a game that will surprise players and exceed fans' expectations," said Dan Hay, the game's executive producer.
"Given the unique setting, we feel Far Cry 4 will stand out as a top first-person shooter and we're eager to reveal more about the game in the coming months."
Ubisoft Montreal is leading the development of Far Cry 4 in collaboration with Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Shanghai and Ubisoft Kiev.
Additionally, Ubisoft revealed that all pre-orders for the game will be automatically upgraded to the Limited Edition, which includes three bonus singleplayer missions starring "the popular nutjob" Hurk from Far Cry 3 and the Impaler harpoon gun.
The only official image released thus far is the box art, but Ubisoft plans to show off the first gameplay footage of Far Cry 4 during their press conference at E3.
The game is set to release on November 18 in North America and November 20 in the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) region.
Far Cry 4 will release in New Zealand on November 21, according to new listings on Mighty Ape. The retailer has the game priced at $108 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and $88 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
