The spate of pre-E3 reveals continues as Ubisoft blows the lid off Far Cry 4, which has been officially announced for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on November 21st.
The anticipated open-world sequel is set in the Himalayas, wherein we'll hunt, sneak, shoot and battle dangerous wildlife in an effort to topple a tyrannical despot.
Far Cry 4 is set in Kyrat: "a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king." Who we'll naturally find ourself on the wrong side of fairly quickly, and set out to humiliate with extreme prejudice. Ubisoft promises to further develop the weapons, vehicles, and animals we loved in the superb Far Cry 3, allowing us to continually explore off-piste and enjoy our own unscripted storylines. Then presumably set stuff on fire and hopefully ride an elephant.
“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, Executive Producer in the gushing press release. “Given the unique setting, we feel Far Cry® 4will stand out as a top first-person shooter and we’re eager to reveal more about the game in the coming months.”
