Far Cry 4 will launch on November 18 in the United States and November 20 in EMEA territories, Ubisoft announced today. The open-world first-person shooter is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Sorry, Wii U fans.
Here's Ubisoft's synopsis:
"Taking a sharp turn away from the lush island jungles of the top-rated Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4 is set in Kyrat, an untamed region currently ruled by a despotic self-appointed king. But don’t be lulled into a false sense of security by the achingly beautiful views; Kyrat is a wild land full of perils. Once again, players will be able to craft their own stories as they travel through this exotic open world teeming with wildlife – using their wits along with an assortment of powerful weapons and diverse vehicles."
The publisher also revealed the follow-up to Far Cry 3 andBlood Dragonis being developed by Ubisoft Montreal in association with Red Storm Entertainment and the publisher's Toronto, Shanghai, and Kiev studios. We'll have more details come E3 time.
Far Cry 4 will have a limited edition, (because of course it will) which includes a trio of single player missions featuring Far Cry 3's Hurk. To get in on that action and acquire Hurk’s harpoon gun, "The Impaler," you need only pre-order the game. Pre-order now! Sigh.
On a more personal note... YES! Far Cry is the best! I love Far Cry!
