Ubisoft Announces Far Cry 4, Launch Date Cover and Systems Revealed
Nothing says you’re a crazy, paramilitary group leader like wearing a Saints Row-esque outfit and having a bunch of guns laying around while a hostage by your feet holds onto an unpinned grenade.
“The year’s performance will be led by five games – Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, Just Dance, The Crew, and Watch Dogs,” Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said. “Watch Dogs’ pre-orders are at record levels and it is perfectly positioned to become the industry’s most successful new IP in history.”
Setting up the premise of the game, Ubisoft provided the following description for Far Cry 4:
“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.”
Far Cry 4 will be coming out for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Nov. 18. Pre-ordering Far Cry 4 will give you a limited edition of the game that features the Hurk’s Redemption downloadable content, which is a three-part campaign starring Hurk from Far Cry 3. This DLC will also unlock Hurk’s Impaler harpoon gun for Far Cry 4’s main campaign.
