The first details have been confirmed for "Far Cry 4." According to a report from Joystiq on May 15, Ubisoft has revealed that the sequel will be a cross generation release as it will be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 current-generation consoles as well as the more powerful PC, PS4 and Xbox One systems. Unfortunately for Nintendo fans, it appears that the upcoming title won't be released on the Wii U.
Just like the previous installments of the franchise, "Far Cry 4" will still feature an open-world setting. However, the fourth entry in the series is going to take place in a completely new setting as opposed to the traditional tropical landscape. Players will be exploring Kyrat, which is located in the Himalayas. In order to take down a flamboyant dictator, they can use a variety of animals, weapons and vehicles.
The limited edition of the software product includes "Hurk's Redemption," a DLC pack that features three single player missions as well as "The Impaler" weapon. All of the extras come at no additional costs when pre-ordering the video game at participating retailers. You can find a box art from the open-world first-person shooting game from Ubisoft's Twitter page with the photo attached near the top side of this article.
The publisher is going to reveal more details, including a first look video, on "Far Cry 4" during a press conference at E3 2014. Ubisoft is also expected to show off other games such as "Assassin's Creed Unity" and "Tom Clancy's The Division." Other rumored titles like "Beyond Good and Evil 2" may appear during the event as well.
"Far Cry 4" is due to come out for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One first in North America on Nov. 18. European players have to wait until Nov. 20 to play the localized version. Although the developer has not yet been announced, the previous installments of the series was handled mainly at the Montreal studio of Ubisoft.
