Far Cry 4 announced with November 21 release date

Ubisoft has announced Far Cry 4 with a November 21 release date on multiple platforms.

Far Cry 4 will launch for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC later this year, following on from the success of Far Cry 3 in 2012.

The development of the game is being led by Ubisoft Montreal and is set in Kyrat, which Ubisoft describes as a “breath taking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king.”

The game will force players to utilise a vast array of weapons, animals and vehicles to “write your own story” across the open-world landscape of Kyrat.

“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. “Given the unique setting, we feel Far Cry 4 will stand out as a top first-person shoot and we’re eager to reveal more about the game in the coming months.”

So far, this is all we know about the game, but we’ve had pack shots for the standard and limited edition games too.

If you pre-order the Limited Edition Far Cry 4 you’ll get Hurk’s Redemption, a series of three single-player missions featuring Hurk from the Far Cry 3 DLC. You’ll also get Hurk’s signature harpoon gun, The Impaler, in Far Cry 4.

Ubisoft’s E3 2014 press conference will provide more details on Far Cry 4, so you’ll only have to wait until June to hear more.
