Dan Hay has commented on the potential return of user-generated DLC for the upcoming multiplatform video game, "Far Cry 4." According to a report from Aus Gamers on June 20, the executive producer behind the project seemingly confirmed that some type of feature where players can create and share contents will be included. However, he won't be talking about the subject for another two or another months. It is possible that Ubisoft may be waiting for GamesCom, a convention that takes place in Germany in Aug. of this year, before disclosing more details on the software product.

Dan Hay also disclosed that "Far Cry 3" did came with a good user-generated feature. Players were able to build a sandbox island using various enemies, terrains, vehicles and other objects in the third game of the series on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms. Finally, the executive producer stated that the "spirit" of the user-generated DLC should remain the same in "Far Cry 4."

However, user-generated content did not really became popular in the console space until the releases of "Halo 3" and "LittleBigPlanet." Having players creating and sharing videos should extend the longevity of the software product.

"Far Cry 4" appears to be packed with a lot of contents. Along with the possibility of user-generated DLC, the video game also provides a huge open-world, which is based on the Himalayan mountains, for players to explore. Furthermore, it includes a drop-in and drop-out feature so that two users to team up.

"Far Cry 4" is coming out on Nov. 18, approximately two years after the release of the aforementioned "Far Cry 3."
